It's Cool To Build A School!

It's now available! Yay!

I did the cover art for this children's CD to raise money for the Moore Public School Foundation in Moore Oklahoma. The sales of this CD will help raise money for the things that the insurance doesn't cover in the wake of the devastating tornadoes that demolished the two elementary schools in Moore, Oklahoma in May, 2013.

Goodbye Summer! Hello back to school!

Hello my lovely friends!

As summer winds down and we gear up for the back to school season I came up with some new art to help usher in the days that I used to dread and look forward to all at the same time. I definitely had mixed emotions as I loved being out of school to enjoy time off and I especially looked forward to sleeping in late!! At the same time, I was also eager to see my school mates again and get new schools supplies! There is still nothing quite like that smell of a brand new box of crayons!!

Here is my version of  I am not a morning person. These prints would make great wall art for young and old alike. Those little ones who wake up grumpy or for the older ones who have to get used to an 8 am class at college.

Everything in the shop is ON SALE for 20% OFF through August 21, 2001. Use special code: BACKTOSCHOOL20 at checkout.

Thank you all for your wonderful support and as always, I would be honored if you would share this newsletter or my shop with your friends and family.


P.S. Here is a peek at an illustration from a new book coming out on September 1, 2013. (I have added the saying for fun!)
