hello shayla, wow a graphic tablet, good for you! this might sound odd but i don't even use a mouse, i just use the touchpad on my laptop which probably makes things considerably more difficult haha.

Love your work, your amazing hair and your son is so adorable!

thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a lovely comment. i'm following you back :) xx

Very cute sketch - it reminds me of those digital games where you can "dress up" a character.

Also, these photos of you are so lovely! You are beautiful!

'The best way to predict the future is to create it' how brilliant, and so very true. I've been reading 'The Secret' and it says that the past is a manifestation of all our past thoughts. We have more control than we think sometimes. I really hope that my prediction of the future comes true.

Ah handbags - all so yummy and delicious!
I used to love designing my own clothes (on paper) when I was a kid, unfortunately sewing was never very high up on my skill list so they always just stayed as drawings!

Jenny Blair said...

Awww beautiful boy and mumma too. Love you dress, though can't believe you got photographed outside!!...did you not just do a post on ice fishing a few weeks ago!! :) brrrrrrr!
I'd LOVE to see all the things you make, you have such a wonderful style I imagine everything you turn your hand to is beautiful.

Love the art, Your son is a cutie. Fun to learn a little about you. The movie and the game both sound interesting and the game is right up my alley.

Oh, I love the look of your blog already. I just bought myself a digital tablet for Christmas and am slugging though learning how to use as I define my style. I look forward to seeing what you do with yours.

Sabina said...

I love your collage. It really is all kinds of cuteness without being at all saccharine. And the pics of you are beautiful. Love your hair.

And yeah I'd have to agree about Pink Flamingoes though I also feel similarly about the original Willy Wonka movie!

Tammie said...

your sketch mixed with the adorable handbags is wonderful. Love the photo of you as well as the dress. Such a handsome son!

Missy said...

Great sketchy collage! and what a pretty dress and your son is a cutie. Also fun learning things about you. I like John Waters and Care Bears (combination that seems kinda creepy side by side here)!

EVA said...

I love that quote and frequently write it inside my agenda/calender. Great to know more about you!

It looks like you can indeed design your own things!

Debbie said...

She is Sara said...

What a pretty dress! I love the picture of you with your son, very, very sweet!

Julia Christie said...

What a cute little one with his mama! Love your sketch and learning more about you. You should share the things on your other blog! You will be surprised by the feedback I bet - you are obviously a very talented young woman!

Bella Sinclair said...

Cute purses and great sketch! Oh wow, that dress is beautiful! But I can imagine how cold you must have been out in the snow. :) And your son! Ohhhh, he is such a cutie!!!

Ayala Art said...

What a pretty blog!!
Shayla, if you still didn't figure out the anonymous thing, post again in my blog, your email (I won't publish it!) and I can email you the steps to fix it.. I Just don't want to flood with a long post.
Hugs!
