A page from my sketchbook. Just for fun. I started out with pencil crayons and made general shapes and filled them in with patterns. Then I used my imagination and a pen to create little creatures from the shapes. Imagining is fun!

I love fabrics and have been using them more and more in my work and have started to amass quite a collection. I went to an annual sale at Woodcliff United Church and walked away with two HUGE bags of fabric for a ridiculously good price. All the fabric is donated by people who have leftovers lying in their basements and then all the proceeds go to Grandmothers in Africa. Very neat. And check out all the awesome fabric I picked up! I can't wait to use it in paintings, and on shirts and for random sewing projects! YAY!

My mom has been having some health problems and when I remembered yesterday that mother's day was coming up and I had failed to buy her any type of present, I was madly trying to think of some meaningful gift I could get her last minute, and thought about what she might want. I think the thing that she would want the most would be the magical ailment fixing rubber hammer. Unfortunately scientists haven't figured that one out yet... And so I figured my love and support and stuff in the form of a hug was as good a substitute as you could find...
