I slept away the new year, having two small children means sleep is a precious commodity on our house! 2009 promises to be a great year, I can’t wait to see what the year brings. To celebrate the new year, I’m going to try and do a post a day for all of January, with a photo of something. Whether it be a new
Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog, and for leaving comments – it means a lot to me! Wishing you all a wonderful, happy, healthy, properous & creative 2009!

So I finished my gift tags, and now I can start wrapping the mountain of presents sitting in my office.

…when he had only visited one timezone, and he already needed some balloons to help him back up the chimney! For last week’s Illustration Friday (and yes, i knew that it’s Thursday already!). I’m actually thinking of making this one into a series, so keep an eye out for some more Christmas collages!
