Day after Valentines...

I hope everyone had a great Valentines day! Mine was pretty interesting to say the least. I'm attempting to get out into the dating world again and have put my profile up on one of those online match-up sites. You really get quite a few "interesting" characters on these sites and I'm just not too sure how much longer I will let myself be one of them! It just seems as though you are meant to put your best foot forward so that initial matches can be made and then once you meet the person in the flesh (no pun intended!) ...they are not at all who/what their profile said they were. Sigh...back to the drawing board I guess.

Regardless, I had HUGE computer issues these past few weeks..I'm talking my entire system was wiped clean...no more pictures, no scans..all original files LOST!! It was traumatizing and I was devastated but lesson learned: Always back-up your work! Everyone seems to know and do this (except for me of course). I'm not sure how but somewhere along the line, I never seemed to have got that memo..You think I would have learned my lesson from how often this happens. So now its daily installations of all programs and software in an attempt to recreate my machine as it once was!



So this is something that I worked on for a gentleman's wife and kids for Valentine's Day..hope they liked it. It's not the best photo since my scanner is also kaputz but you get the idea.



xoxo with Love.

Oh dear! The dating scene must be pretty scary! It's been 24 years since I had to worry about that...I have a girlfriend going through exactly what you talked about!
Good luck to you and love your illustration! Just darling!
Hugs,
Kelly
