Where Bloggers Create Party 2!

Hello bloggers :) This is my first year participating in the "Where Bloggers Create Party"! I'm so excited! I can't wait to visit all the bloggers participating tomorrow while enjoying my morning coffee...FUN! :) Before I get started, I would like to thank Karen, from My Desert Cottage for hosting this amazing event! I hope you'll stop by her place and check out her blog and all the other participants. I'm sure there will be lots of fun and inspiring photos :)

For those first time visitors, just a little info about me.... I'm a full-time freelance children's illustrator and I spend a whole lot of time in my studio hehe :) I sprinkled some of my characters around for fun. Hope you enjoy! :)

Here's a peak into my studio....










That's about it...thanks so much for stopping by :)

Hi Julissa! Thanks for stopping and leaving the nice comments! I found out about silly bands first at my full-time job I'm a packaging designer for kids products. Then one day I was going into a Walgreens a little girl about 4 years old was walking out the door screaming at the top of lungs "I got some silly bands!!!!!" I had to buy some to see what there all about. I seen some glow in the dark ones in the store yesterday and they make glitter ones too.

It was fun to see your lovely children's characters take part in this tour. Your kitty was adorable, too. Thanks so much for allowing me the opportunity, albeit late, to tour your lovely (and animated) studio.
