I'm happy to say that my cereal box cover journals have sold really well so I ordered a new binding machine that uses twin coil wire. I have more fun ideas for creating notebooks and journals which will lay flat. Much easier for doodling and kid books!
I should receive the machine this Friday so stay tuned for more news.
Back in April, my hubby and I took off to California City to enjoy some dirt bike riding in the desert. I had bought a new helmet cam and thought I had it recording but nope! Luckily, my hubby videoed a couple of clips of me just riding by. Although, not super exciting! ha ha
Now that my day job has chilled a bit, we will be heading back out to the desert this summer to do more riding and I this time around, I'll make sure my camera is going!
I attended an incredible conference (Craftcation in Ventura, CA) the first part of April and not to be all "drama" but it was life changing! The beach and ocean waves were a perfect place to relax and think which made me realize I have way too many projects going on and I really need to stick with one...okay, maybe two projects. Isn't hard to to have so many interests and so little time?
As I've mentioned, our kids have grown up and moved out so my husband and I are enjoying more time together and loving our rides in the desert with our dirt bikes so I have decided to devote more time to videoing our adventures! I'll start adding videos to my new YouTube channel as we get out to the desert to ride. Stay tuned!
Of course when you go riding, you must accessorize and I quickly found out there isn't a lot of comfortable t-shirts with dirt bike graphics for women to wear. Yes, I wear a jersey to protect my arms from the sun but who doesn't want a cute graphic t-shirt to wear for the traveling back and forth? I've been playing around with some fun designs which you can check out at TeeSpring. Maybe other women will be interested?
My other creative love that I can't stop is creating art journals with my thermal binding machine. It's just so much fun! Check out my Instagram and Pinterest accounts to see the cereal box cover journals. They've been really popular especially with kids!
In the meantime, I'm putting my children's books on hold and when I retire (next year!) I'll come back to Burt the Bunny's adventures. Illustrating and writing is very time consuming and I just can't do it all especially with a full-time day job!
Please stay tuned! Come back often or visit my other sites to see what's going on!
Thanks for being here and always supporting me.
The intro is finally up on my new YouTube channel - A Girl, A Desert, A Dirt Bike.

I've been making cereal box cover journals and people have been asking me how I made them so I made a YouTube tutorial! Go check it out and make your own cereal box cover journals. They make great gifts!
I had a super nice lady ask me today where she could buy her own Burt the Bunny t-shirt so I thought I better post the link again! Go to my storefront here!
The link is also on the right-hand side of the blog "Buy Burt the Bunny Apparel at my TeeSpring Storefront".
Thank you everyone for buying Burt the Bunny t-shirts!! My grandson and I were twins today with our Burt T's.
I was invited to an Author Showcase at my day job and one of my coworkers videoed my book chat! I didn't realize we were going to talk about our books and I was so nervous. ha ha
