Melinda Boyce, header artist.

I've been in love with Melinda's beautiful comics since I discovered her site last year. So I was thrilled when she agreed to design the header for this blog.

It's so me: sunflowers and mangoes.
Only missing are a few cats.
But I couldn't think of a way to include them.
In the mango tree? In the sky? On my head? It just wouldn't have worked.

Well anyway, thanks Melinda, for drawing me cute and getting the roundness of my face just right and not including any acne, blemishes, etc.
Jasmine, the 8-year-old I babysit, kindly pointed out that I'm not that thin. And she wanted to know why "the spots on my face" weren't included.

Melinda sent me these health-related comics to share with you all:

Love the new blog. Oh goodness kids can be so blunt sometimes! I had one tell me my new glasses looked ugly last week and the brother say he didn't like my jacket! Geez! Anyway, so happy to follow your new and renovated life- and blog!

luv the new blog alexia. Especially the new masthead/logo. She did a great job. Kids can be so funny sometimes. When my daughter was young, she walked in on me changing and wanted to know why I had TWO STOMACHES. Kids, gotta lov em.

Would you mind emailing me the graphic artist who did your masthead? I need to redo mine and don't have a clue where to start.
