Popsicle Stick Christmas Ornaments

It's November, which to many over-enthusiastic holiday lovers means CHRISTMAS! Yes, I love Thanksgiving as well—it's just one big holiday celebration for me from now to the end of the year.

Frosty the Gourdman

Happy October!

A couple of years ago, my sister Dani and I created a graphic novel called Frosty the Gourdman. It's a Halloween story that is both scary and sweet. Since it's launch, each October we have offered free online access to the complete story over at www.frostythegourdman.com. Head over to the site to read the comic, buy a digital or print copy of the book, and check out some other fun extras.
