Celebrate: New Co-host, Art Therapy & Big Giveaways

The lovely Tonja Drecker of Kidbits Blog has agreed to help co-host Celebrate the Small Things and will be hopping around to your blogs along with LG Keltner.  Yay!!  It would be awesome if you stopped by her blog to thank her for becoming the new co-host.

I stayed up 24 hours yesterday because I was working on a new cover for a short story and making advertising pictures for my book and short stories. (I made the covers for "Biggun" and "The Mission.")  I only work with GIMP, since that's the free one, but I manage to do pretty well -- and I LOVE to do it.  It's like art therapy.  It's nice to have projects that take 24 hours to finish as opposed to writing on a novel for months and months.  And months.

Since I just woke up and the coffee hasn't kicked in yet, I thought I'd share some of the pics I've taken off the net and airbrushed out words or ads and added my own:

And some inspirational ones, too:

What do you do to unwind from work?

My kind and wonderful co-hosts of Celebrate the Small Things are:
L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge
Tonja Drecker @ Kidbits Blog
