Last fall Spry Publishing contacted me about recreating my Diabetes Voodoo Doll for the cover of “Kids First, Diabetes Second”.  Being commissioned to create cover art for a book is definitely something I never would have imagined I’d do.  And although diabetes can be such a drag sometimes, this is something cool that never would have come along if I didn’t have diabetes.  Thank you to Jeremy and Lynne at Spry for the wonderful opportunity and for the big reminder of my blog tagline, “life with diabetes isn’t all bad”.

  4. I noticed that it was your art, and just assumed you did these kinds of things ALL of the TIME. Well, congratulations!

    And nice manicure too!

  6. You rule! That is so awesome, the art you've made! How awesome -and how true that the Big D can be so much a blessing in the friendships and opportunities to touch other lives. We are all better for knowing you and being touched by your awesomeness, Karen! (And I've resorted to using "awesome" in my comments three times...) Thanks so much for sharing all of this!!
