A bit of good news..

If you stop by here you probably know I do a spot of 'colouring in' for my job. I work full time as a greeting card artist, and in my own time, I sew, and work on my own children's picture book ideas....and boy did I have a spot of good news yesterday that I'm still in shock about.

After my agent spotted one of my illustrations, she set me up with a writer, who turned my pictures into a proper children's story..... so I worked on more illustrations, and plotted out a full dummy book then I forgot all about it.

Until yesterday, when I received a say that my book idea, is going to be published!!

So at the mo, I still can't believe it...I'm sat here now while Mr M is STILL working away..with Miss Sue on my lap...

AND my new bag came today!

there were many a gasp at work today when I had it on display...THANKYOU lovely Raquel...

Wow this lady can sew alright!!

So you can see I'm really busy, but to be honest with you I love illustrating cute pictures....

I never have days like these normally!

Oh I wasn't gonna have a glass of wine....oh GO ON then :0)

Nighty night bloggers, and thankyou for stopping by to read my wafflexx

Love Sam x
