happy boo day!!!

Halloween is truly one of my favorite holidays. I guess I've always loved the creativity of making costumes and decorating. My mom made my costumes every year and it was always lots of fun to have something unique and handmade, that couldn't be bought in the store. Here's me as a witch...I think I was about 4 or 5 years old:



And here's a drawing I did that same year:



I won't get to celebrate too much this year–no big parties to go to–but I'm hoping to host a Halloween party one of these years so I'll just have to make up for it then! Hope y'all have a happy, happy Halloween!

Hello,

I have been reading "Haiku Baby" and think your illustrations are very beautiful. Do you sell any of your artwork as posters or cards?

Thanks.

Yes! Papyrus has a note card set with 4 of the images from Haiku Baby. You can find it in Papyrus stores but I can't find the link online anymore.
