So you might have noticed the blog has a few lulls every now and again. This typically happens when things get a little crazy around here. You see, in addition to crafting, blogging and the typical mom stuff (soccer camp, art camp, music class, oh my!) I more than likely have a number of exciting illustration projects on my plate. And so I thought, instead of hiding out when this happens, why not share a few of them with you?! I do have an illustration blog, that is quite neglected and not at all updated regularly, but I think I might try to merge some of these things onto Mer Mag. What do you think? Would you be interested?
At the moment I’m working on a super super fun project! I can’t disclose what it is but it involves horses and I just can’t wait to share it! I also have a number of other book projects going on that are just so cute and so much fun! If you are interested in looking up some of my work, I illustrate under the “pen name” Tuesday Mourning. Long story but basically I just loved the name and enjoy it when artist personas are as whimsical as their work.
You might have noticed from this blog that I love children’s toys and so when I have the opportunity to illustrate for companies like Mudpuppy, working on great projects such as these fun finger puppets and flip draw book, I’m just head over heels! I’m crazy for this kind of stuff, aren’t you? And I have to say, you should get some, because they are so much fun! And better yet, super affordable. The finger puppets are only $6 and the flip draw book is $8! Perfect birthday gifts, if you ask me.
And guess what? I’d love to share some with you! I’ve decided to gift a set of finger puppets and a ballerina flip draw book to one lucky reader. What do you say?! Just make a comment mentioning one of your favorite creative summer activities and I’ll enter you into the drawing to win these fun gifts! And if you like “mer mag” on facebook and I’ll enter you in twice! (I know, I’m seriously a slow poke when it comes to social networking – just joined Instagram this past week – so I’m finally getting around to really sharing mer mag on facebook).
You have until Friday to enter. I’ll then Announce the winner on Monday, June 25th!
