Happy Birthday, Melissa's Kitties!

Hi everyone,

Today marks Melissa's Kitties' 5th anniversary! And I thought it would only last a few weeks....

Thanks to Anastasia for getting things rolling by introducing me to Illustration Friday. While it's been hard work, it's also been lots of fun! Last year, I took Kelly Ray Roberts' Flying Lessons and Holly Becker's Blogging Your Way e-courses, which were both really fun and helpful in improving my blog. I hope you're enjoying it as much as I am.

To mark this momentous occasion, I've finally added an About the Artist page. (Better late than never, right?) I don't have many photos of myself and keep asking my sister for them. We forgot to take some over Christmas, but this one is from last summer at North Market in Columbus, Ohio. I'm smiling because I'm eating a giant strawberry and banana crepe smothered in Nutella. Mmmm, I can still taste it.

Look forward to a "Meet the Kitties" series and page soon to come!

Thanks to everyone who has been following my blog and encouraging me along the way. Here's to the next 5!

Best,
Melissa
