This is Where I do a Kickstarter Victory Lap!

Well, color me tickled – my project is funded!  So many people to thank – 108, actually – but I’ll wait until the acknowledgements page in my book to reveal them publicly. ;)

In the meantime, I will be working tirelessly to secure a publisher, finish 19+ new Ornamentium pages, and eventually get this out into the world and everyone’s hot little hands.  I know how patiently you all have been waiting and I promise – I am working as hard as I can to make this happen.

In the meantime, I will be uploading more pages up on Etsy for you to download and try out.  Any favorites you’d like to see there?  Just leave them in the comments and I’ll let you know.

If you need me, I’ll be here…with the air conditioning on. =)


Much love and gratitude,


Ornamentium – Last Days on Kickstarter!



Hello all,

Just a quick update to announce Ornamentium’s final days on Kickstarter.  This has been an amazing journey and I sincerely appreciate everyone’s support.  This book wouldn’t be happening without all of you, and I am thrilled that you are accompanying me on this crazy, ever-changing journey. <3

Limited Time Only – The Owl on Etsy!

If you like the Owl I made for Ornamentium, now’s your chance to snag him before my book is published!  Please see the below link:

All funds earned from sales on Etsy go towards the publishing efforts for Ornamentium, so thank you so much for your support!


Ornamentium: A Coloring Event

Thanks to my amazing friends, I was able to share the early iterations of the book and see the coloring process first-hand with Ornamentium.

That…is a lot of pages.


Aria had a fantastic time with the dragonfly page and channeling abstract expressionism. <3


Amber, Silver and Mark worked steadily on the hummingbird and spiral pages:

Beth was doing some *amazing* work with the owl, pencils, and markers:



Tima, Katha, Adrienne and Aria working steadily with watercolor pencils, crayons, markers, and colored pencils:

Today I learned that coloring in these pages requires far more than the three hours I allotted, most took theirs home and will share with me the completed pages later on.  Looking forward to seeing what they do!

Thank you so very much to everyone who came out to color with me, especially Corrie, Mez, Leslie, and the very hospitable folks at Heden for lending me your home for the event. <3
