Happy Mother's Day!

'Had a lovely day - filled with all the things it should be-

Flowers - (and garden things..) -

-and chocolatey stuff.

And, although this was not a Mother's Day gift, I did want to show you my new 'baby'. A (pretty) Dell Inspiron 1720 . It is huge - a 17 inch screen (wide-screen ratio, so that you can watch movies in the correct format. :-) and enough bells and whistles for my studio needs. It even matches my green organza curtains that cover my studio closet. It is spiffy, sleek and fast. Such a treat after our old, creaky laptop. Now that I'm not chained to my desk however, we are not spending nearly enough time together... Soon, though, I'm sure... I do have more projects coming up.

In the meantime, I am on total illustration hiatus until July 1st (garden, garden, here I come!). My folks are in town visiting for the next couple of weeks, and tomorrow morning we are leaving for a 3 day jaunt to Victoria!

See you later this week! And hope your day was lovely.
