See this guy? This is really me. Well, the male version of me that is. Ok, so I don't draw as well as him (boy, I wish I could!), but this is what I looked like this week. Especially the hair. And the face. Remember that giveaway I was supposed... Continue reading

Valentines is just around the corner (less than a month now!), and with it, the endless search for the perfect valentine. I love the valentines exchanges, it's like a heart-themed Halloween party.

Remember when I mentioned my magnum opus I was working on a while back? I really should have told you all earlier but with one thing and another, I kind of put it off until the very last minute (hopefully). By the way, for some reason, I can't upload pics... Continue reading

Love the colors and peppermint sticks!
Those pjs are adorable! Any chance of making a princess dress pattern? Or maybe a skirt with little suspenders?

Aside from Christmas, Halloween is my favorite holiday.

Actually, now that I think about it, it's also our first "real" logo. But, I guess that makes it new too doesn't it? About a year ago, Adam and I were trying to pick out which character seemed most representative of trafalgar's square. After going through pages and stacks of... Continue reading
