I PLACED 7th! :)

OK, I didn't WIN the Spoonflower "Rain" fabric contest, BUT I DID come in 7th...out of at least 360 entries!!!! :) I'm tickled pink that I did come in the top 10, which was my goal and hope :D Thanks to anyone who took time to vote for me. I am definitely going to enter again soon...I made an alphabet pattern for the "Alphabet" contest, but I forgot to actually submit it before the deadline! (Ding-a-ling me...) But I really had a lot of fun playing around and making my own fabric. Just thought I'd share. Here's a picture of my entry:
And here is the link to the Spoonflower "Rain" contest page/results:

Illustration Friday: Bottled

I used to watch I Dream of Jeannie when I was little (in black and white of course until my mom and dad got a COLOR TV!) I thought it would be cool to be a genie. How fun to just *BLINK* (insert sound effect here) :) and suddenly your room was clean! Wow, I could get my whole house clean now, have yummy dinner right there whenever I wanted, blink myself to Hawaii...but one thing was sure...I was NOT gonna call anyone "Master!" Here's my IF entry for "bottled"...with apologies to all the genies out there...

Illustration Friday: Duet

These 2 lovebirds are enjoying their duet!

It's nice to finally hear the real birds outside singing for spring :) We're on spring break right now...a whole week of SLEEPING IN! Hope your week goes great!

Illustration Friday: Toy

I'm a week late submitting this, but I thought this little guy was cute! I've had parent-teacher conferences all week and have not had enough time to draw!
 If you're like me, you had all kinds of favorite toys growing up. My favorites were: stuffed animals reigned in as all time favorite, Barbies (of course),  little people like those Fisher Price people, board games like Monopoly and Sorry...I even played with little Matchbox cars with my favorite cousins who were boys. But NOOOO "dolls" dolls were not on my play list! I had one that sneezed and peed...yuck! I never liked playing with them.
I had fun and was a bit nostalgic creating this one. Hope you had fun creating your own toy illustration and reminiscing about when we were carefree and had the whole world before us! Wow! That sounds kinda depressing!
