So, my husband and I went for a walk through the park yesterday and we found a plethora of blackberries. I decided that we would would pick enough to make cobbler and voila, it was made and tasted so very very good 🙂


I’ve got a few ideas ready to go next week for Grandparents day type greeting cards. By far, my illustrations are my favorite thing to do…maybe one day I’ll be compared to people like Lisa Frank, Sanrio, or even Mary Engelbreit. Maybe not compared to them per say but me known that style of work… stationary,calendars, greeting cards and the like sort of designs. That’s what I really prefer… although I do love my Christian t-shirt designs.I hit up Care2 yesterday… they have a thing where select people can have their e-cards featured on their site for free. No payment between either parties but it’s publicity to my site and whatnot.

My husband and I went on a date yesterday evening to celebrate his raise \o/ We went to Bullwinkle’s and played 18 hole mini golf… I got three hole in ones… all that albatross18 is paying off! LOL

We had a nice dinner at Shari’s. I had Country Fried steak w/ white gravy, mashed potatoes, and carrots and my husband had Steak n’s Shrimp with bread and hash browns… yummy ^^ A very enjoyable evening out together
