Let's peel back these layers!

juliannlaw Here is a closeup of the endpapers in my debut picture book, THE WORKD’S LONGEST SOCK. I work digitally in Adobe Photoshop but the program doesn’t do it all for me! I knit all the pixels by hand! Haha! I do have things I do to help me work quickly and efficiently, though, like using layers. Here you get to see me take off those layers one by one till we are back at nothing but a background. The World's Longest Sock is now available on  Amazon ,  Barnes and Noble ,  Target , or wherever you  buy books !

it must have been love

Well, Friday the 13th was fun, but our February the 14th was miserable. Not only was it the worst Valentine's Day in our recorded history, hubby claims it was possibly the worst weekend of his life. I came down with a horrible flu bug at about midnight on Friday night that kept us up till 3:00 in the morning and then laid me out flat the rest of the weekend. Poor Mike had to help me in and out of bed and worse. . . (skip ahead past gruesome details). . . at one point he had to hold my drinking glass for me because I was having severe muscle spasms in my back and shoulders. And as if a sick wifey wasn't bad enough, that threw Lucy off and she seemed upset all weekend and bored of being cooped up and had the worst diaper rash I've ever seen AND a continuously runny nose. So you can imagine, Mike could've been featured on the Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs for all he had to clean up and put up with over the weekend. That's love.

This pic is a little tribute:

Oh I hope you're feeling better Jul. So it wasn't the ideal V-day, but I think it is surely proof of what true love is. :) Good job Mike!
Yeah, all my childless siblings were out doing couple-y things all day while I was cleaning and cooking. We don't usually do stuff on V-day, but with kids now who don't "get" the fake holiday, there really is no point to do anything that day.

(that was very bah-humbug!)
I'm so sorry you got sick! I had no idea when I called you on Sat. Being sick is miserable--thank goodness for patient husbands! I love the pic of your closet.
