New Year - New Adventures!


Well I have to apologize for my lack of blog posts the past few months. 2012 turned out to be an amazing year.  I started out the year working with Nomad Press on their exciting new educational book, Explore Native American Cultures!  I believe there were a total of around 100 illustrations.  I enjoyed working on this book so much that the time really seemed to fly by.  It amazes me how much the kids will learn about Native Cultures from this title and I'm very excited to see it in print.

In addition to this project, I also gave my ETSY shop a lift and introduced my new greeting card line.  I'm very excited about this venue and I've been able to make several sales and I'm hoping the success will continue.

I'm NUTS about you!

My last, but greatest achievement (and the reason nobody has heard from me since November) is the birth of my first child, Emily Gertrude Lovercheck.

I never knew how much I could love something until she entered my life.  I'm thrilled to watch her grow and change.  She has stirred my imagination in numerous ways and she's only been in my life for a mere two months!


For all you Mattie fans out there - don't fret! She is still in the picture and going strong. She has also turned out to be an ideal "furry big sister."  I can't wait to see my little one play with her and learn to love her.  What a pair they'll make! I know that my writing and artwork will blossom with their relationship.



There's a new muse in town and I'm looking forward to all of the inspiration she will bring me.


Happy New Year, indeed.
