I'll bet if you are one of the people who entered my contest you are wondering who the winner is to each of my giveaways. Me too... sorry something is up with Rafflecopter and I'm unable to pick a winner right this minute. I'll try again tomorrow and hopefully I'll be able to figure it out. If not, I'll just use the numbers that Rafflecopter gave me and pick a winner that way. You'll still get the same number of entries as you have and the same number on your entries according to how Rafflecopter recorded everything.
What I'm Reading
The new SCBWI bulletin ASAP!
What I'm Writing/Drawing
I came up with some new greeting cards and put them up on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/DaniDuckArt Unfortunately I'll never be able to post everything here, because many of the cards I wont be able to make multiples of simply because some of the ribbon I bought was on closeout. Bad planning on my part.
Thinking about adding coloring posters to my craft fairs and possibly Etsy. Also maybe gift tags. I'd like to do more illustrations as well but I want to focus on smaller items for my shop right now. I haven't given up on my illustration goals though!
I think I'm giving up Swap Meets for good as far as selling my art. I made exactly $0 at any Swap Meet I've been to with my art. I may sell used clothing at these, but artwork? nope. I think my prices just might be too far above what people want to spend at a Swap Meet. I hope that future shows are better.

He was the cutest little thing going Trick or Treating this Halloween. Decked out in his Superman outfit he ran from door to door screaming "Sebby" (his friends name). He said, "trick or treat" and "thank you" a lot this year. He also screamed bloody murder when I had to take some of his "chocolate candy" and put it in my pockets so he had enough room in his bucket for more candy. I didn't eat most of his candy. ^_^ here he is in his cape. I have one of him in the full outfit but it's not on my computer yet.
