This design is now available on Boom Boom Prints--so you can get something for yourself or a baby you know (and they ALWAYS have free shipping).
When I went to the Boom Boom Prints website just now I noticed my "Woven" drawing was featured on their homepage. Weee!

A place to share the process. A space to be honest about the triumphs and trials of my daily life as an artist and mama. Writing motivates and refreshes me.
