First, I wanted to share that I have taken the plunge and I'm going to participate in the 12 x 12 in '12 challenge, which you can read about by following the link provided here. It sounds like a jolly kind of challenge, and since I've been wanting to work on my picture books this year, this was just too good an opportunity to pass over. If you'd like to join me, that would be more than fun! There will be a lot of us participating, and it should be a good year for creativity.
Next, there is a giveaway going on over at Shealynn's Faerie Shoppe. It is a brilliant-looking giveaway, and I hope you go over there and participate. It looks like SUCH fun!
