1) For my birthday, my husband gave me 2 awesome gifts.  One of which was a makeover of my portfolio.  Thanks Erik!!




2) A recent article in Cardus (Comment magazine's online publication) came out, highlighting part of my By Its Cover series.



3) I have a couple of friends who make stellar artwork and art supplies.  They have stocked their shops full of very creative, affordable things-- perfect for Christmas gifts!  I know I would love anything from any of these shops *hint, hint*  :)
