Yummy Sketch of the Day - Valentine's Day Chocolate Covered Strawberries, a cute dress and my recently Published work....


Hi Everyone....

What a wonderful day ......my husband Brad picked up a package for me at the post office today and to my surprise it was my latest published work!!!!

I illustrated a short story for Crow Toes Quarterly, a children's literature magazine based out of British Columbia. The story is titled "How the Stepmother got ugly" a fairy tale with a dark ending....it was a fun project.

I always feel like a kid in the candy store when I see my work Published...each and every time it is very exciting no matter what the project is........

I have a special box where I keep copies of all of my published work for our son...I hope he can look at it as he grows up and appreciates my art....

and for the "Yummy Sketch of the Day" I feature some chocolate dipped Valentine's Day Strawberries...(with hearts) yummm.... and I also added my second Valentine's Day dress....these are so fun to sketch each and every day and I hope they bring a smile to your face and make your day brighter....

Cheers,
Diana

Wow Diana! Congratulations on the published illustrations! That's BIG! I am very impressed, and happy for you.

I love the chocolate covered strawberries, and that dress is pretty hot...enough to make a man's knees grow weak...in my opinion. ;-)
