Hello I'm Vanessa Brantley-Newton and I am so glad that you came to visit my blog. I am a full time Mom and freelance Illustrator. I work from my home in East Orange, NJ. I love to craft, cook, day dream, laugh, draw, sing, look at other creative blogs and websites, paint, collage, read children's books, and tell stories. When I 'm not doing any of these things I'm catching up on much needed sleep if you know what I mean? I hope to share a bit of my whimsical world with you.
