DT Incy Wincy Designs: Dust it off!!

It is monday again and time for another challenge over at Incy Wincy. This will be my first blog post today.  We have a lovely challenge for you this time as it is a "Dust it off" challenge, but before we get to that I want to thank every one of you who played along with our "Summertime" challenge. You have to check our challenge blog to see if you have won or become a top 3 for that challenge;)

If you are looking for my DT card for Whoopsi Daisy, you have to check the post right above this one. 

Our sponsor for this challenge is the lovely:


I am a self-trained illustrator who likes simple, cute and quirky drawings with a sense of humor. I draw what amuses me, which means some days it is quirky and cute and other days I come up with a bit of twisted gothic feel. I hope you like them as much as I do. My personal professional illustration portfolio can be found athttp://christycroll.com.

Personally, I hate doing dishes and folding laundry, so my house is often a mess...but I try every once in a while to clean it as quickly as I can---don't look behind the pile in the closet. LOL I have one daughter who makes me smile, inspires me, and drives me batty as she is too smart to be her age. LOL For so many reasons, she is my everything and most of my illustrations revolve around something she did or said. The rest of the time, they are inspired by other people's kids and animals...maybe yours. 

My life is too short not to be doing something I love, and that is what art is for me: It makes me smile; it makes me laugh and without a doubt it is something I love. And if my art makes you smile, then I have just doubled the fun. 

I type the way I think, so it will be filled with typos and dot dot dots....see? Bear with me...it is part of my charming personality (sure it is!!! :D). 
See ya around here often...I hope. I love comments, so just say hi if you want to make me smile.
