Hip hip Hooray for BARB!

Barb won the first Papertrey Stamper's Choice Award (along with Kacey, also amazing project!) Hats off to Nichole for awarding both deserving projects a prize! Thank you to EVERYONE who went and checked out Nichole's blog and left comments for her!! I'd like to accept this award on behalf of Barb, I think we ran a tight campaign (HA!)
The photo above is the original drawing (not a stamp!) of the hippy I watercolored and submitted to Gina K(yup, this was the first illustration of mine she ever saw). Let's just say I'm REALLY glad she liked it! I've been meaning to post it at some pointand share other bits and pieces of how the set was inspired(check back for more if you're curious!), and how appropriate to share on the day of my friend's victory! Waving at you, Barb, we're all shaking our hips over here doing the happy(hippy!) dance! :)

  1. Thank you Melanie. I am so glad I took your advice when you said keep entering your work! And to use your original hippo to celebrate, how special is that.


Your generous feedback helps make my work and this blog better! Thanks for inspiring and motivating me! :)
