Paisley and "Daddy"

Paisley is our Boston Terrier. He loves his Daddy. Yes, we're one of those couples. We treat our dog like our kid. But, Marty and Paisley have a special relationship. Paisley likes his daddy more than he likes me. This just miiiiight have something to do with the fact that Marty feeds him table scraps and lets him sleep in our bed when I go out of town, but I won't get into that. :)

Right now, Paisley is outside "helping" Marty run electricity to our new shed. Yep, they're best buds.

This is yet another book cover for a family friend:

Here's a logo I did for a ladies conference back at my home church in Virginia:
