I hope everyone is having a wonderful "back to school" week and getting some well deserved creative time.

I have been swamped with petsitting over the holiday weekend so I was glad to be back to a normal schedule this week. I was craving my little sketchbook and drawing so badly!

I drew a little "Queen of Hearts" birthday girl and am going to make her into a digital stamp. I was inspired by Alice in Wonderland and was sketching Alice and her friends at the Mad Tea Party. The inspiration from these sketches jumped onto the next page and I began drawing my little cupcake queen with her crown of hearts.

I cant tell you how much I love designing my digital stamps. I am happier than I have been creatively in such a long time and always love sketching but now it seems like ideas are almost flowing thru me now. Its like magic! Dont you love it when that happens?!?

I'm also finishing inking some Christmas fairy stamp designs for a company in Florida, she will have my other fairy stamp designs and my bio posted this week, so I will let you know when I'm on her website. Really excited about that!

What are you guys working on this week? Any new cards? sketches? paintings? scultptures? Did you find any magic in your sketchbook? Would love it if you'd share, that is my favorite thing, hearing about the wonderful enchantment of creative inspiration in all of you!

What a perfect sketch for a little girl's birtday. She is so cute. I spent time in my workroom today creating cards for 2 challenges. Also made a card for my granddaughters birthday. You can see them on my blog.

What an adorable image! My mojo hit a wall today so I only got a few things done in my craft room. I'm cleaning it now (the craft room - not my mojo) so maybe that'll help. :o)

Wonderful illustration! It definitely seems like magic. I've been practicing a bit of whimsy illustration as well and it's super fun to create little characters. I've been swamped with freelance work, but hoping to get some paintings done soon!

I can't tell you how happy it makes me to hear that you are happy and that your mojo is magically flowing.

Have a wonderful creative day ~ Smiles,

Miss Queen of Hearts/cupcakes is adorable! I haven't been creative since Rocky left us. I've been reading -- brain candy! I do have a few WIP's going -- needlework mostly.

Thanks for the kind words you left on my blog. It is wonderful getting so much support from other crafters. I'm so thankful for my hubbie. He gives me a lot of support and inspires me daily. I also have been very fortunate to make so many friends in person and online through my crafting.
