Sneak Peak- Animals

I’ve been working on these cute animals for the last 2 days. They are going to be the main feature of a few kids themed albums I’m working on. I will also be offering them as a set of PSD work paths. You will be able to take the path and stroke it with your choice of brush (in these examples I used a brush called “stitch” by boyinpaw) or fill it with your choice of color or pattern. So far I have 26 different animal paths and I’m looking to add more! Stay tuned to see when the final product is available.


You can view all the completed animals so far by viewing the album on my Facebook profile here.


The Beginning

As I begin my adventures in the world of work from home mommyhood I am filled with apprehension and excitement. I have spent the last 8 years in the United States Marine Corps, a challenging job to say the least. Trying to work from home, go to school online, and take care of my babies will be even harder!

I am 26 years old and mother to three children. My boys are ages 6 and 3 months, and my girl is 18 months. My oldest son is from my first marriage (oh the drama I will spare you from!) and my two youngest are from my current (never to end!) marriage. A blended family, needless to say, only ads to the challenges I face as I embark on this journey.

My primary love in the graphic design world is digital scrapbooking. I design scrapbook pages as well as original embellishments. I also love to do the photo editing required to make a page wonderful. I have made a few full scrapbooking freebie kits and also do scrap for hire.

I am currently attending American Intercontinental University Online and majoring in Digital Design. I am really loving this university. My favorite thing is that they provide all books and computer programs that you need to complete your classes. So far I have received the computer programs Microsoft Office 2007, Adobe Creative Suite 3 Design Premium. I have also received several useful books, my favorites are the Classroom in a Book for Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop, the Krause Idea Indexes, and Business and Legal Forms for Graphic Designers. I will complete my degree in June of 2010.

The first paid jobs I have completed have come through the Elance website. This is an AMAZING site. Anyone can post a job for hire on this site for FREE. Providers can then submit a bid on the job stating how they will complete it, in what time frame, and what they will charge. The Poster then chooses a provider to assign the job to. I have completed two jobs on this site and am looking for more. You can view my Elance profile at

And now the littlest is hollering to be fed so I guess I am done.
