The Great Secret Project of 2014? Revealed!!

Remember how I was working on something that was a secret?  That I couldn't post any pictures of?  Surely you remember how curious you were to know what it was that I was doing?


Ta Dah!!
Believe it or not, my work is gracing 
the January page of this gorgeous calendar
that my friend Pam Kellogg has put

To say I'm excited is most likely the understatement of the year!  My work is alongside some of the people I most admire in the field and I feel so very honoured to have been asked to take part in this project.  

This is what I created for the January page of the calendar.  I think you can click on it if you would like to embiggen to see the details.

To read more about it, and to discover who else has done incredible art for the calendar, please visit Pam's post on her blog HERE. order your very own copy (they'd make great Christmas gifts, btw) go HERE.

Thank you Pam for including me!!

Today's quote is from John Mason.... "You were born an original. Don't die a copy"
