GIT'M and such

Three months? That's how long it's been since I updated? Sheesh. Okay, here's a little logo I made for the Geniuses In the Making Club.

Here's a sticker I made for a friend's production of Tartuffe.

Fanbows assembled a book of Rainbow Rowell fan art & she asked if I wanted to make something new to go in it & I'd never really made anything for Midnights, so...

Also in the past three months, I made my mommyblog private (the kids' friends are getting old enough to Google each other and Ben was like "how come my baby pictures are online?"). I went to the Advancing Women conference and while listening to presenters talk about work-life balance had to admit that mine was no longer super in sync. (This really kicked into gear in August once we had kids in two different school systems.)

So. NEW VENTURE. I quit my job with the City so I can be, as Ben puts it "a home mom" or as Kris and I put it "self-employed." I can make my own hours doing graphic design from home and not worry when a kid is sick or two school systems have their spring break ON TOTALLY DIFFERENT WEEKS.

Huh, I think the first graphic I made for this new change is kind of appropriate then:

My last day with the City was December 1, so I will be home for the holidays. Which means I won't be at the Library for the Harry Potter Holiday Extravaganza that we'd cooked up and I that I had WAY TOO MUCH fun making buttons for...

Maybe it won't be another quarter of a year before I update? We'll see.
