Winter Wonderland......

HAPPY 2018!! 

How is your new year starting out?  Mine is pretty good. I've gotten a few snow days so I've had time to paint, read and write.  I am one of those people who love snow. I love watching it fall. I think it is beautiful on the trees and if it's going to be cold then I want the ground white. haha I know snow has its dangerous aspects too, which I've experienced, but I'm choosing to look at its more magical side.  Now even though I do like the snow, I'm not a fan of the negative temps we've been having. They are fine for a day or two but not weeks.  The arctic blast was only good for one thing and that is creating some spectacular views to be seen.  This is a picture I took of Cathedral Falls here in West Virginia.  So are you like me and enjoy the snow or one of those who is counting down till spring?

How do you keep busy during these cold days?  Do you brave the cold temps and see the sites, maybe go skiing, sledding etc? Maybe you stay indoors with a warm fire, a cozy blanket, with something warm to drink and a good book. Or binge watch tv, paint a picture, or play a game.  I can say I got a good start on my tbr reading list and relaxed by painting a little bit.  No matter how to you like to spend these winter weather days, I hope you are enjoying them. If you happen to be experiencing summer right now, enjoy it while it lasts! haha 

For a limited time, Into the Ocean is going to be on sale for 0.99 so take advantage!

Let's Talk Holiday Traditions

Thanksgiving has come and gone, and it was a wonderful day with so many things to be thankful for. My family and friends are just the best. I have a full time job that puts food on my table and pays the bills. Plus, I get to illustrate and write children’s books which is a joy of mine. I have completed Into the Ocean which is my first children’s chapter book. I got my paperback proof last week and it was so exciting holding the final product which I’ve spent so much time creating. It is available on Amazon in e-book and paperback form now!

Christmas is quickly approaching; my decorations and tree are up and shopping has begun. Do you have any holiday traditions that you do every year? A special ornament(s) you put on your tree, a sweet treat you only make during December, a favorite carol you love to sing?
These are a few of my favorite things 🎢🎢🎢🎢🎢🎢🎢

Feel like sharing one of your Christmas traditions? You may leave a comment here or on my Facebook page. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

Happy Fall!

October?? Already? When did that happen? Haha! Been a long beginning of the school year but things are finally starting to calm down and a routine is becoming the norm. I have been able to get some illustrations done….all of them in fact. 😁 So now I’m working on the cover and then it’s finishing up the formatting. I’m hoping to have it published on Amazon by November. Into the Ocean will be my first kids chapter book for early readers. This book explores our world’s oceans and the sea life that calls it home. I will be posting more about it later, on my Facebook page so make sure to follow me.

Are you a fall fan? I’m sad to see the warm temperatures slowly fade away but I love Halloween and Thanksgiving, then Christmas and snow isn’t far away. One of my favorite things about Halloween is creating Halloween decorations in my classroom for our big school event. Love to draw? You should check out for some fantastic how-to draw videos and books by Steve Harpster. My students are having a blast! The decorations this year are going to be Spooktacular! What is your favorite thing about fall?
Time to get back to my cover design! So excited! Can't wait to share!
