Guess what arrived today?!! I'm so excited my @goingtoguides Disney California Adventure book is here!

I can't wait to put this baby to use when we're in the parks in a few weeks! Even for people who know the ins and outs of the park, it's still a great book to have! Now we just need the DCA edition!β€’

So the finalists for @goingtoguides contest were announced the other day, and while my design was not chosen as a finalist I truly enjoyed the opportunity to create something so magical. I also want to say Thanks to Jimmy Mulligan for taking time out of his busy schedule to give me a critique. It meant a lot, and was very helpful when I hit a creative wall at one point.
Thank you to everyone for the support and encouragement, I will release print info later!

Someone asked me today if they order my book on Amazon, does it come from me? Great question! The answer: NO. Orders from Amazon and B&N are shipped directly by them from their warehouses. If you want to order directly from me, go to GoingToGuides.com (link in profile) and you’ll see the link β€œAUTOGRAPHED BOOKS.” All the books I send are autographed (with scented glitter pens of COURSE πŸ™Œ) and the built-in bookplate can also be inscribed with doodles if you like. See #ESDSW for examples. Again, glitter pens are involved. πŸ™Œ I also throw in a tasseled bookmark, I ❀️ Going To Disneyland sticker and Fan Club cards. πŸ“—πŸ“˜πŸ“—πŸ“˜πŸ“—πŸ“˜πŸ“—πŸ“˜πŸ“—πŸ“˜πŸ“—πŸ“˜πŸ“—πŸ“˜
Wherever you place your order, be sure to check out the Fan Club page of my website for fun, FREE printables like This Just In! Bookmarks, Going To Disneyland Certificates, Coloring Pages and much more! Swipe for more pix πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰

3rd photo: Me signing books at my very first Book Release Party in 2015. What fun that was! We had a photo spot, prizes and artist @j_shari_ewing doodling LIVE on the white board! My teenage son was kind of oblivious to the significance of mom getting her book published by Orchard Hill Press. After the Book Release Party he realized that it was all kind of a big deal and came up to me and told me he was proud of me. SNIFF! I’m not crying, you’re crying!

Fill work for the same section. This just shows how many changes can happen after all the line work is done. I must have gone back to this spot alone 5-6 times. Never mind the rest of it! #daughertysdesigns #daughertydesigns #itsasmallworld #itsasmallworldafterall #goingtoguides #linework #colorfill #fill #color

Working on one of my new pieces, I'm excited about this one as its part of my creation for @goingtoguides competition. This has been a labor of love for me as Small Wold is a special ride for my family. I can't wait to share this with you when I'm done!
