book, baby & balloons!

hello hello!

here are the"civilized" pictures i promised of ada and "her" book

oh's the coverthe ada page

so happy to be here and to announce that we are now on the other side of the flu/fevers/colds that went around our house for the past couple of weeks. ugh! first ada, then mama (that's me) then dada. oh, did i mention that the twist fair was in the midst of all of this!? i survived, but barely. fever does not mix well with art show preparation! you know what else happened? my little baby turned ONE! we had a fun-filled weekend of parties full of cupcakes, new dresses, friends (little and big ones), family gatherings, frog catching, and "boons".... that would be balloons! they are her new favorite things, well, next to climbing up the stairs! i think i may officially have a toddler on my hands!

here's the birthday girl *early* on the morning of her birthday. she seriously would not let go of that balloon! :)

so as you may have guessed from my absence, that we've been quite busy these past few weeks! in addition to all of the fun, (and not so fun sickies!) i've been working like a crazy woman on book promo and event plans. LOTS of that exciting news coming up for you next week...

but, truth be told, i think i might have to call it quits for the day today... it's the long weekend to kick of the start of summer! yay! an iced coffee is calling my name...

i wish you all a happy weekend!

i'll be back here every day next week! what the what?! really, seriously!? yes indeed ;) there's so much to share with you and i've missed you!

see you then! xo *s

  6. Happy birthday to Ada! :)

  7. It's a big job, being a working mama and artist. Keep up the good work!

  8. The book is super awesome. I was one happy camper when my copy arrived. I also spied it at local book stores BN the other day. I love your artwork, and Ada is a sweetie. I fondly remember my DD's 1st many years ago now 15 and 17. It goes so fast, capture each and every moment and hold them close. There will be lots and lots of 'boons' in your future, simple pleasures that you won't want to let go of either.

  9. yay! congratulations on all your good news - happy birthday to Ada - and hope you avoid any more nasty bugs for a long long time!

    I also got my copy of your book last week - and it is amazing, amazing amazing!! LOVE IT!! I'm blown away by its beauty - really!
