The week that was...


 Poor little Zoe wound up having a stint in hospital this week. The whole family has been sick with colds and flu, but when you are only 5 months old it can hit you a bit harder. Fortunately the staff at the local hospital were just wonderful and helped to get her home in time for her big sister's birthday.


We even manged to make a cake (um..of sorts!). Cute huh? Happy 3rd birthday my darling girl!
It's MY birthday tomorrow and we are all still a little under the weather, so I imagine it will be a quiet one this year!

New Studio space

I have taken on quite a bit of work over the coming months and needed to set up a work space somewhere. So I have taken over the baby's room (temporarily), and moved her cot into our bedroom.
With a great new work space, I no longer had any excuses to procrastinate, so today I sat down and made a good start on my next book project. While I am still signed on for plenty more Ella & Olivia book (very exciting!) I am really pleased to be taking on another full colour picture book. I started on some storyboards today and enjoyed getting carried away with the moment. I have lots of silly and fun sketches and am looking forward to playing with it a bit more soon.
