Making a change

Over the years I’ve tried to maintain several different blogs on topics that interest me. Health and Fitness, parenting, design, my life. Well it hasn’t gone too well, as you can see by the infrequency with which I post here. I’ve decided to have just one blog where I can cover all of the topics that are of interest to me. Every post won’t be about design, but there will be plenty of that on there. Come on over to mymanymonkeys.wordpress.com to keep seeing more of what I do!

Maddy’s Monster

After seeing the blue and pink monsters Maddy (my four year old) decided she needed a monster of her very own. Her favorite color is purple and she asked me “will you give it hair!”. This is the result. Enjoy!

Mommy’s Pink Monster

Posts two days in a row, I’m on a roll! Here’s the second installment of my little monsters. This pink cutie is just waiting for a hug!

Little Monster

OK I’ve been a huge slacker lately. Lots and lots going on. The biggest issue though is that I cracked the screen on my laptop! I got a design bug today and had to scratch the itch so I just made all my windows small and moved them to the side of my screen and this cute little guy is what came out.

Always update your address!

I have a store on cafepress.com. I personally think my designs are pretty great, yet I haven’t received a commission check in over 2 years. I decided to log on and see if I’d had any sales. I was surprised to see that I had several sales and over $200 in commissions I had never received. Why? Because this brilliant lady never updated her address after moving 2 years ago. Boy do I feel sheepish. Hopefully the checks were never cashed by someone else and they’ll go ahead and send me my commissions!

I’m back!

Being a designer without software is like being a runner without legs! Several months ago we switched our home computer from PC to Mac. I didn’t have the software for Mac so I couldn’t design. I finally have my software back and I can’t wait to get designing again. Problem is now I have no idea where to start. Apparently taking a break causes a mental block, not an overflow of unworked ideas. So use the comments here to tell me what you’d like to see on a new Cafepress shirt, as a digital scrapbook theme, or any other design ideas you have.
