The Digital Era

(On her- Top, purse, necklace, belt- Anthropologie, Skirt-J Crew, Oxfords- Joseph Campbell)

Here's another version of my possible characters. It's about a little girl and her best friend Andrew. They love to play dress up together until her obsession gets out of hand. Gee, wonder who that's about...

On another note, you may have noticed that I've entered the digital era. It's still a work in progress as I figure out how to wield the digital paint brush in a manner similar to the actual one that I have been using for years, but I'll keep practising. In the meantime, I'll keep subjecting you to my trials.

Again, if you have a preference of characters let me know...

Mystery Critter

(Peplum Top- Madewell, Scarf and Flats- Anthropologie, Jeans- AG)

Okay, not my best work but I'm still trying to get back into the swing of things. We had a lovely last Summer hurrah here last week and I was able to pull out some sleeveless tops for one last spin. The sun was a treat but I have to admit that the prospect of artful layering for cooler climes is extremely exciting. Hopefully more exciting outfits- and recognizable animals- to come.

I'm back!

(Whole outfit from Anthropologie- I know, big surprise.)

I'm alive! Okay, so there was probably never much doubt about that, but hey, look, I'm blogging again.

Talk about a sabbatical. Things got pretty hairy there for a while, moving across two provinces (I'm back home in BC!!!) while juggling deadlines, house guests, work travel, three thousand pets, and single handedly ending poverty will do that. Okay, that last bit I haven't totally figured out, but I'm, like, halfway there. 

But maybe one or two of my loyal followers are out there still? If you are- Hiya! Welcome back!

So I'm going to start work on a book about a little animal character who loves to dress up. No, it's not an autobiography, at least not completely. I just haven't figured out what kind of animal she and her friend will be so I'm going to use this blog to help me try somethings out. If you think one is working well please send me a note to let me know. 

Yipee- I'm back!!
