Youch! It's been forever, I know! I'm happy to say that it has not been the same for my art! In fact it's become a staple for my career and a privileged to enjoy.

I hope everyone is doing well and miss many of you in the community. I wish you all the best as I try and stay more tuned in!

Motherhoods an adjustment... my mother in law bought me a shirt that said "Motherhood, the toughest job that you'll ever love" and i couldn't agree more. It's worthwhile, but for now sleep deprivation and learning are my life ;p Good thing she's cute. I'll be posting a picture soon.
