Happy Valentine's Day!

I've been meaning to post this for a couple days and I'm just barely making my deadline with an hour to spare!  A couple weeks ago I offered to help my sister-in-law out by making her kid-lets some custom valentines.  After talking to my niece and nephew she was able to give my some instructions and I got to it.  My niece is pretty into princesses so I came up with this cute idea.  It's pretty straight forward but you're supposed to put 2 slits by her raised hand and insert a sucker as her scepter (as pictured).  I included a high resolution version of the valentine with two per page so feel free to keep it around for next year.

I have excuses...

So I really do have a good reason as to why it's been so long since I posted last... RIGHT before Christmas my husband and I packed up and moved from Utah to Seattle, Washington.  With all the craziness of the holidays we really didn't move into our apartment until right before New Years even though we left Utah on the 18th of December.  The first couple weeks of January were consumed with unpacking and shopping for new things to furnish our apartment.  It's been a very busy couple of weeks but I've still managed to get some art time in there!  I'll be posting some of my latest projects over the next couple days.  

Isn't this little guy cute?  I finished him up right before the move.

Also, check out my new banner.  Being a red head, having a mild obsession with the Little Mermaid since a very young age, and will be living in the rain for the next while I figured I'd see what I'd look like as a mermaid.
