Son Surgery ♥ Silent Story Kickstarter

My heart is going to feel these coming months. My sweet son is having major spinal surgery on February 14 (it was bumped from last November). I will be with him in the hospital for 5 days, then home to nurture and tend to my babe for many weeks.


This changes things for my business. I will have less time to devote to my studio as I will be physically devoted to my boy more intensely♥♥♥

Here he is, above, as a sweet little rascal ♥♥ he's a teen now.


I appreciate all of the love and prayers you feel inspired to send our way. His name is Jackson and he is a precious boy ♥♥♥

I have been working tirelessly on my Silent Story art book for 2.5 years now, and appreciating all of your kind feedback, pre-orders, connection and kindness.

It’s almost Kickstarter time!
I know you’ve been waiting!

Stressing in the wee hours, unable to sleep recently, I realized that I CAN NOT manage my Kickstarter while I am in the hospital for five days with my son... I simply cannot set myself up for that kind of stress if I want to be present with him AND be healthy to care for him after surgery. So it has to be done by February 14.

Thus, the Kickstarter starts this THURSDAY!! And runs for 22 days until February 10. This makes way more sense to me. I'll share the Kickstarter link with you soon!




►If you pre-ordered your Silent Story book through my shop, there is STILL a Kickstarter level for YOU!

You will be able to choose a Limited Edition enamel Seeker pin, an original painting from the book, or even another Silent Story book to gift to someone you love!



►You can still pre-order your copy of Silent Story through Wednesday, if you don't want to participate in the Kickstarter.
