KellyRipa Cat is very into the They Draw and Travel contest! She has been helping make friendship bracelets for me to scan in and use in my illustrations. I must say, I love her color combinations! ;-)

Here's a sneak peak at my next map that hopefully I'll get to finish tonight!

Map Maker, Map Maker make me a Map!

I thought I'd share a from rough sketch- finish illustration over on here! I decided to enter They Draw And Travel- site found HERE- because the contest seemed fun and well, i love to illustrate! I kinda strayed from actual map as this doesn't really tell you how to get anywhere LOL, but I am happy with it and got to work in my favorite medium, collage!!
have a looksie at my process...(click any image to make it larger!)




and here's a link to the final map on the webbie!

such a cool idea- i'm working on another one, that's more of an actual map now!! :-)
If you entered, i'd LOVE to see! Please share links!!!

something sweet & festive!!!


i know this may come as SHOCKING news to some of you, but I am not very domestic. Unlesssss, I am in the mood- which I was today! I wanted to make a special July 4th dessert and was inspired by THIS image on pinterest! I am lactose intolerant so no white chocolate for me, just dark! so see the below recipe in photos :-)



i got very into it and tried some banana slices too!!

AND then came a little homemade dairy-free icecream sandwich making! all is now cooling/freezing...looking forward to eating time!!!!
