The great thing about being a designer from home is that no sleepless hour is ever wasted. I had over done it the other day and my back was paying for it! So to ware down the sleepless hours waiting for the meds to go to work, I had the opportunity to curl up on the couch and sketch. One of my favorite hobbies is to sketch, though I'm no trained illustrator, I do have moments of brilliance when a sketch leads to a great idea or can even be useful as a piece of art within a design I am working on.

Here was my beginning sketch work and brainstorm: ----->
Now I have scanned, perfected and started to rearrange the items already from this sketch, but the light bulb hasn't gone off yet for the one moment of perfect balance, that I want to share with the world. Though my daughter thinks my ideas so far "are so pretty" and in her eyes I can draw the world; got to love the praise from the little ones. But I hope to keep at it throughout the weekend and get the time needed to really transform my love of a "blue winter wonderland" into a greeting card to sell to all of you.
I'll keep you posted on the progress.
And on a side note: how much would you pay for 25 - 4"x5" greeting cards with envelopes?
Talk to you soon! Hope the first week of Autumn has been a good one!
