  4. Love those squirrels! And I think he looks smashing in that hat. 🙂

    • Renee, thanks! You would know a smashing hat when you see one. =)

    • Renee,

      Seems like everyone loves squirrels. I think Teresa’s squirrels might be the winner of the most comments for an illustration. Have a great year and hope to see you visit again, soon.


      • Kathy, I couldn’t reply to you below, but I wish we could meet at the NYC conference too. Maybe at another conference one day soon… Happy 2015 to you!

  5. You know I love your squirrels. Too cute.

    • Aww, thanks, Sherry!

    • Sherry,

      Thanks for stopping by and letting Teresa know how much you enjoyed her squirrels. We have been trying to keep the squirrels from eating all the food for the birds. They are hungry little buggers. Have a great new year.


  6. I love Teresa’s art! Her squirrels are hilarious! Thanks for sharing!

    • I’ll have to bring my compiled booklet to show you at the NYC conference, Elaine! 🙂

      • Teresa,

        Wish I was going to be there to see you in NYC. Have a great 2015.


  7. I adore these squirrels, Teresa!

    • I adore you for adoring the squirrels, Kathy H.! 😉
