You are always greater than you think you are. What doesn't kill you makes you fat for the journey. Keep your heads up and run to your destiny. Positive ramblings from a under my rock. Have a great week people!

Everything seems to make me FAT 'Nessa!!!
Love the illustrations, especially the last one; it just jumps out at me for whatever reason!
Here's big hugs to you sweetie and hoping that rock you're under has cable TV and a few luxuries/comforts!

XXOO~~♥

Hey magical lady. So wonderful so see you and your colorful work emerge. You've been on my mind a lot lately which must mean it is time to schedule our next coffee klatch, maybe after Mom's Day? Love and hugs.

love the love, baby!
oh gosh, the last pic w/the big hair reminds me of our younger son...his hair is also big/the other day at school a kid slipped a stick into it + he didn't realize until hours later because it wasn't visible. tee hee.
LOVE to you! xox

LOVE these, Vanessa! They brought so much JOY today, and thank you for the gentle reminder that there's a "journey" ahead- probably should have been on a few, by the looks of things! ;o) Hope you're on your way to a splendid weekend!

Aw, you are every kind of wonderful! I love your kiddies. I can tell exactly what they are feeling just by the way you draw their shoulders. Amazing! Looks like you are having way too much fun under that rock of yours.

Off I go, fat for my journey and running to my density!
