Wordless News - Baby break

Friends,

As I wait patiently (haha) for my bundle of joy to arrive, I've decided to take a break from Wordless News. I should be welcoming a little one into the world any day now and while I'd planned to make Wordless News part of my routine distraction, I've realized that my brain and body really need these last few days to rest and prepare. Once the baby is here, I will make an announcement and set a date for my return. I'm planning to take three weeks off after the baby is born and then resume my normal WN schedule.  

Thank you, as always, for following along and for understanding while I take this little break! I promise I will be back as soon as possible. :)

Wordless News 12.22.15 - 1.2.16

Hi Friends,
I hope you are enjoying a wonderful holiday season! Today marks the start of a short seasonal break for Wordless News. I'll be spending the next couple of weeks wrapping up projects for the year and spending time with family and friends.

I'm excited to start a new year of Wordless News come January second! I do want to mention that at the end of April or early May Wordless News will be taking several weeks off. I am pregnant with my first child and I'm certain that the demands of an infant will require me to take a little pause from the visual news. But the news will continue per usual between now and then and resume as soon as possible after the baby arrives. 

Thank you for following along. I am so grateful for such a wonderful community of supporters. :)  

Best wishes for a Happy New Year,
Maria

Wordless News 10.22-10.23

Wordless News is taking a break for the next two days for CREATEATHON! 

I'll be working with a great team of people to create materials for non-profit organizations for the next 24 hours. If you want to follow along — all night long — you can see what we're doing using the #createathon. Please enjoy a full eight hours of sleep for me!

Wordless News will return Monday, October 26th.

Wordless News 10.7-10.9

Friends,
Due to the devastating flood disaster in my hometown (Columbia, South Carolina) I am pausing Wordless News until Monday. Instead of drawing the news this week I will be volunteering and helping out in the community. Wordless News will return on 10.12. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
