(Warning: There are a lot of exclamation marks in this post!)
Its been such a great year and I’m so thankful for all the wonderful things that have happened!
I am definitely a believer now more than ever, that if you want something, you have to make it happen. Each project I worked on this year led me one step closer to starting my Etsy shop, which became a reality in October!
What better way to end this year, than to see my work in print among other artists from around the world!
Each artist that participated in the Limited Edition Sketchbook had one of their spreads featured in an edition of a book based on the theme they chose. I chose Pictures and Descriptions as my theme and was happy to see they chose the spread I had hoped would be printed!
The final version before I put it in the mail…
My book has finally arrived!!
There’s my sea urchin!

A huge thank you to everyone that supported me this year. It has meant the world to me!
I wouldn’t be able to do any of this without my co-pilot and number one fan. Whenever I got discouraged, he gave me just the right amount of encouragement and reassurance to keep me going…without him I’d still be dreaming of having an Etsy shop, not actually having one. Thank you Dan for your love and support every day!
I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones and enjoying some time off to enjoy whatever makes you happy.
Here’s to many more artsy adventures in 2013!
