Self-Portrait



I'm finally getting use to my pen tablet and the amazing stylus. Above is something fun of a simple self-portrait of me using Wacom Bamboo. Bamboo can work with wonders but also I love to create in traditional techniques. Some materials that I love working with are pencil, pen, watercolor, pastels and now...Wacom Bamboo and the amazing stylus. It's all about practice, practice, practice!

Enjoying these bold, lively colors and pattern from BHG. It's a wonderful way to mix and match your home and create cool modern spaces.

Don't Forget to Laugh

"Every once in a while, I miss the days when...actually...I don't miss a thing. I love being a Mom!"

This was sent to me by BabyCenter. Not sure who is the artist but if it's yours...I love it! My son just turned one today. Can't believe time flies by so quickly and this little baby is moving on up to toddlerhood. Here he is watching one of his favorite shows Pocoyo.
