Pepper and Mint

Ummm so this is my e-card because I... well didn't make it in time to get them printed... hahaha. But next year she'll be printed. She came to mind at last minute. 

Well I'm a tad old fashion when it comes to holidays. I'm not an uber OMG CHRISTMAS... as I hate that it's soooo commercialized... "lets buy the most things"... and "ooo the sales". That's not what the holidays mean to me. But I can't lie... I like the old concept of the winter holiday and that's pretty much how I think of it.

Meaning of the Winter Holiday to me:
1. Food: making food, eating food, and sharing food.
2. Smells: cookies, spice, and pine
3. ♥: Caring, sharing, and charity
4. Magic: Elves... elves... and more elves :D I'm a nerd

I will probably make more and call them Little Winter Wonders. This is Pepper and Mint.

SCBWI contest entry and other news.

The SCBWI is having a contest that is due mid this month. The entries are based on a certain passage from the story of Chicken Little (where the group runs into Turkey Lurkey). This was my submission. It was drawn and colored completely digitally.

On other news... still unemployed. I've applied to LOTS of places but no one's even called for an interview. Well still plugging away. 

Also I was contacted but a group called FHQ aka Firehouse Quilts out of Colorado. They make and donate quilts to children from fire sites and to abused women and children. So GREAT group. They heard my name while attending one of my uncle's fabric arts seminars and thought I'd be able to help them out. They are looking for a new look to make them feel more professional. Which I like volunteering and donating so I said sure :D!!!
