Drawing in Progress

How about a sneak peek at a drawing I have been working on? I think my favorite part of working full-time is having a lunch break. A whole hour to myself. I should probably eat something during that hour, but I usually just sit at my desk and draw. This is one of several that…

Biking Home

Today I did something that I have been saying I would do for weeks and weeks. I biked home from work! It’s only 5 miles, which to hardcore bikers I’m sure sounds laughable. But for someone who is definitely not in the best shape, it’s a pretty big accomplishment. And it wasn’t so bad. Ok,…

Something New

Today I began a new chapter in my life. It was my very first official day back to work full-time! I have to admit, it is a huge relief mentally. I love my kids, and I enjoyed my time as a stay-at-home mom, but I feel like I’m just better at working. I’m actually good…

Watercolor Silhouette

I had been talking with Chelsey from The Paper Mama about doing a custom drawing for her, and she had the idea of doing some silhouettes instead of a pencil drawing. I jumped at the chance to try something new! I wanted to do something with a little color, and I’ve been dying to experiment…

365 Days Outside > 158-164

Day 158 We arrived at our camp site in Ohio today. The kids were so glad to get out of the van. My sister brought some glow sticks and we had a little dance party in the driveway. Day 159 Our camp site had a water faucet right next to it, and the kids pretty…

While I was in CT visiting my family, I came across a few old pieces of artwork that I had either completely forgotten about or not seen for a long time. This first drawing falls under the ‘completely forgotten’ category. It’s two of my brothers, and I drew it for my older brother for Christmas…

Happy Dependance Day

  See this handsome man? He is all mine! When I was a girl I pretty much accepted the fact that my husband would be ugly, because I couldn’t imagine anyone good looking being interested in someone like me. (This was before I realized that being a nerd was totally awesome.) But I somehow ended…

365 Days Outside > 151-157

It is so late right now, and I am SO tired. Usually I am up this late without any thought of it, but lately I have been falling asleep early. I think the road trip reset my sleep clock. Which is a good thing with the new job starting next week and all. The only…

June Wrap Up

  June was so much fun. Especially since I spent almost half of it at home visiting my enormous family! I miss everyone, but it is so nice to be home. We did a ton of thrifting while I was in Connecticut, it was awesome. Within the first two weeks of June, I finished two…
