If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you may already know that I had the incredible honor of having one of my posts illustrated last Friday by Amber Dusick of the wildly popular blog, Parenting. Illustrated with Crappy Pictures™.

Sorry if this is old news to some of you, but I want to post about it because lots of my readers are NOT social media mavens. (Hi Mom! Hi Jenny’s Grandparents Frank & Fran—Happy Anniversary! Hi Tracy’s Grandpa! ::fist bump::)

Amber applied her wonderfully “crappy” illustration style to an old story I wrote about me and Mini-Me when she was going through an interesting phase several years ago.

And girlfriend nailed it.

Seriously. How freaking adorable is that? I may need to change all my avatars now.

It’s funny, when Amber asked me which post I’d like her to illustrate, I knew right away which one I thought would be a great fit. It was one of my most memorable posts from 2008, so I thought it would be a great way to revive an oldie but goodie and introduce it to new readers. When I mentioned it, Amber said:

 “…that one would be perfect!!! Lots of conversation that I can pull from for speech bubbles.”

And the rest, as they say, is history.

You’ll have to go to Amber’s blog to see the whole thing, but based on a vast majority of the comments, we picked a winner, and Amber’s hilarious illustrations are the perfect icing on the (very sticky) cake! Please go show Amber some love for choosing little ol’ foul-mouthed me to showcase to her vajillions of dedicated readers.

Without any further ado, I present Sticky Situation, now Illustrated with Crappy Pictures.
