My Little Curly Pregnancy and Infant Loss Month

Whew! Its been a long time since I wrote. Since then I've gotten an 'all clear' from the oncologist for another 6 months and started a whole new endeavor as an illustrator. What initially began as a hobby-turned child entertainment has now become somewhat marketable since I've illustrated a First Holy Communion book with another woman named Erika. As I worked on those illustrations, I doodled for Rachel since she is insatiable about coloring and loves horses as much as I do. Her insatiable appetite for horse coloring pages plus my knack for drawing horses combined with our new adorable American Curly Horse equaled the series I've named 'My Little Curly'. So far I have about 60 illustrations of cute curly horses in various poses and seem to always have an idea for creating new ones. This month, I adapted one to reflect the sad reality of Pregnancy and Infant Loss. The cuteness is still there, but the message remains starkly clear as well. Without further ado, here she is...

This month I'm offering 4 My Little Curly illustrations free, as I feel out this new endeavor. This one is available here, my Miracle Journey blog has a Breast Cancer Awareness one, and my Benedict Catholic Creations blog, the home of all of these illustrations has 2 Halloween themed Curlys available. So you can visit those blogs to print each Curly for your own enjoyment. Rachel and my nieces have already tested and approved them as great fun to color. I take requests too! Just contact me and I'll do my best to make your wish a coloring page! 

In addition to the My Little Curly series and the Catholic First Holy Communion book, I've drawn many wheeled vehicles for my son, and just started a series of flowers. I use my creations as a focal point for some of the handwriting pages my children use in their schooling and also plan on authoring a book (or more) featuring the My Little Curly series. I plan on offering all of these illustrations (and even handwriting pages or worksheets based on them) on my Creation blog eventually. I'm hoping to use this to supplement our income since we're still financially strapped since my job loss in 2013. 

If you like this Curly, like the sound of my other creations, or would just like to contact me for something else, please do so! I love hearing from you!
