If any of you are wondering if I fell off the face of the earth, well you just might be correct. I've been up to my neck in exciting illustration work all while taking care of a hyper active toddler and moving across country. Jon was hired to be in the Santa Cruz Shakespeare festival so we are going to be living out there for the next few months. Atti and I decided to stop off in Colorado to visit my family and are currently staying at my sister's home (hence the name of this post).

I did this sketch a while back and really liked the relationship of these two girls. While staying with D-lyn, my older sister, and her three girls the memory of this sketch came back to me. These girls make me think of her eldest two girls, Mickey and Lil. They love each other yet there is definite mischief behind their eyes accompanied by some serious sibling rivalry. I can say that D-lyn and I know this look well :). We are also happy to say that sisters do grow out of it and can look back fondly at the stages of clothing tug-a-war and cat fight scratching and know that it is all apart of growing up with your best friend(s).

So here's to my SISTERS! I love them!


Ooh La La

These Parisian chairs are simply wonderful. I want every single one of them in my house. The Bright pink set of drawers is to die for as well. Viva la Paris!

J'adore Parisian Windows

Hello all! So it's been a while since my last entry but we are back from the magical city of Paris and life is starting to get settled once again (which will be short lived as soon we'll be packing up and moving to California for the summer...but that's another story). Well Paris was beautiful and everything I'd dreamed it would be. I will be posting more photos and inspiration but I wanted to start with this lovely window display. I love these silhouettes. I had purchased some black wall sticker material to make some of my own previously and then seeing these windows has inspired me to make my profiles more stylized like my characters. Should be fun!
