Wow!

Wow!! First I must say.. Thank you all so much for visiting my blog and leaving me such nice comments! April was a busy month for me and I come back and I am greeted with such amazing artists from all over the world. Thank you!! =)

It's been a whole month since my last post but I have lots of updates.. starting off with HAPPY Mother's Day!


I wanted to make my mom a mother's day card inspired by our new puppies at home!! Last Sunday my dog Happy gave birth to 8 adorable puppies. We've been busy making sure they're well fed and well rested on poop free towels. =)





My mom thought it would be nice for me to make cards for family friends for Mother's Day. So I decided to reuse my "breakfast" image making it into a card with a follow up image on the inside in an attempt to incorporate Mother's Day. =) hm..make breakfast for mom? hehe


Last month I was offered to go to Japan with my cousin. That was an offer I couldn't turn down! It was so much fun! We made it in time just to see the last bit of the cherry blossoms and the best part of the trip was I got to see TOTORO! =D I got a chance to visit the Ghibli Museum. A definite must see for anyone who visits Japan.

Grace!! You're work is wonderful. Your lines feel so natural but deliberate! A real inspiration to constantly draw.

Where in Japan is the Ghibli Museum? I'm hoping to visit Tokyo before the end of the year.
