Picture Book Design, do you long to self-publish with CreateSpace, Lulu or others?


Many of us have a book in us, and it may be something you have thought of for a long time. Its really nice to be able to use the self-publishing companies like CreateSpace, Lulu and others to get out there and get books up on Amazon, or just for yourself, friends and family. Great page and cover design for your book design can really elevate a book into something that could hold its own on any bookstore shelf. Contact me if you are interested in a book design package for picture books, coloring books or photo books, more details can be seen here. #createspace  #selfpublishing #bookdesign #coloringbooks


Thinking Spring with this cute print for my new Art Print/Coloring Page Kit!


Does this cutie make you feel like Spring is just a few days away? It has for me, while I’ve worked on the print! This hedgehog print and corresponding coloring page will be part of my first Art Print/Coloring Page Kit that I will initially offer as a limited edition in April. 10 hand signed color prints, each with a line art coloring page on heavyweight paper will all be included in a lovely kraft cardboard keeper. Stay tuned, I am working on more as we speak!

Hello again, I am back!

Screen-Shot-2016-01-20-at-10.34.49-AMIt’s been a while, I have battled illness for the past almost year, but am back stronger now and happy to be here again! I apologize to my new friends that have followed me while I have been away and haven’t heard from me, it was quite a hard time. If you would like, send me a new email for the tutorial page password as now I am able to get back to you. This cute little children’s book DIY project, “Don’t Eat That, Mr. Frog” has been quite popular with my Maddalee followers. If you would like a copy of the PDF file as a thank you for sticking with me, follow me by email here if you already haven’t and send me an email request for the file, I will email you a download link. He is adorable! See the tutorial here. I hope you are all well, I look forward to connecting with you and making new friends. : )

Special Project!


I am going completely BOHO today and painting with real watercolors. Not digital, not Photoshop, but brush to paint to paper. Ok, so there will be Prismacolors and markers involved, but I am sweating it out on the drawing board. Special project, special reason, stay tuned! : )
