So, here we are: it’s been already a year of Picture a Tale online!

It has been a sometimes fast, sometimes slow year, with a long break right in the middle of it for which I have an adorable, one-toothed excuse.

It has been a year of lessons, some of the “yay, I got it!” variety, some (most) of the more banging-head-against-the-wall kind.

It has been a year of making connections with other talented and self-driven people.

It has been a year of rediscovering how great it is to just sit down and draw sometimes and not think about how many “likes” the Facebook page has or how many people will retweet it.

Before we move on into year 2, I want to send out a big thank you to you all: blog readers, Facebook fans, Twitter followers, Etsy shoppers and all the other very supportive people who like tales and art!

Happy birthday, Picture a Tale!

Talk soon,


Back from a two month nap (and a baby)

A recap of my last two months as far as Picture a Tale is concerned:

Give up blogging, nap, give up posting on Facebook and Twitter, nap, give up checking Facebook and Twitter, nap, nap, give up sitting in front of the computer…

To my defense, these have been the last couple of months of pregnancy, so I decided to spend a more time with the kids (and nap). It all culminated in the birth of baby no. 3, a sweet little girl who, so far, loves to hang out in mom’s arms every sleeping and waking moment.

Over the past week or so I started to feel a little of the old energy coming back. So, although still in a sleep-deprivation-induced haze, here I am, in front of the computer, blogging again and checking Twitter and Facebook (some posts coming soon too).

First on the agenda: celebrating 6 months of Picture a Tale by running a sale – starting May 11, everything on the website will be 40% off! Mark the date and spread the word, this website needs some action! And so do I, right after this nap…

Talk soon,
