The Comedians

Flynn (Half asleep on Christmas Eve) “I hope Hoho gives me a bomb bag and a boomerang…” He kept jumping off of things and yelling “HOOKAH!” and it took me foooooorever to realize he was saying “Hookshot”. Obviously. “I want to go to sleep AND play with those.” (his blocks) “Well, you can’t do both”…

New Instagram Paintings

Sometime last December I had a little Instagram contest just for fun. These are the four paintings I did for the winners! I think Instagram photos are my new favorite things to paint. I still need to get these in the mail. It’s on my very long list of things that I need to do.…

Five Years Old

I’m just now getting around to blogging about Juniper’s 5th birthday party. She asked for a Star Party, which it turns out was a very appropriate 5th birthday theme! I love how her invitation turned out. It’s crazy how much she’s changed, and yet she still looks like the same kid. I didn’t take many…

{Etsy Love}

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 There is so much I love about these wooden sculptures. The shapes are beautiful and I love how you can see the wood details under the paint. TINY CROTCHET UNICORN. How cute is that?! I love these shelves. I’ve seen…

Warm Things

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you *drumroll* the ugliest rice warmer bag things ever! (Seriously, what are these things called? Juniper just calls them “warm things”, I’ll go with that.) I have been meaning to sew the kids their own Warm Things so they’d stop stealing mine. We finally made them the other night, and…

Paintings from 2013

8.5×11 5×7 Instagram Minis I thought it would be fun to post every painting I did in 2013, and oh man! There are so many!! Last year was amazing and I’m so grateful for all of the opportunities I had to bust out my paints. I don’t think I’ve ever produced this many drawings in…

29 Before 30

Last year I accomplished just a bit over 50% of my birthday goals. Which is kind of funny, because I honestly didn’t even look at the list after I wrote it up in January. I THINK I know where that paper ended up, but I’m not quite sure. This year I’m going to hang it…

Birthday Weekend

I have been not-quite-sick-but-super-cruddy-feeling for the past two weeks. I’ll feel fine all day, and then around dinner time all of a sudden I’ll get super congested and tired. It’s been annoying. Last Thursday night my throat started bugging me and I lost my voice. Once again though, I felt fine on Friday and ended…

Bomb Bag for my Little Link

When your sweet tiny Zelda-loving kiddo looks up at you on Christmas Eve and says “I op hoho iv me a bomb bag anna no-nang”, you just have to give in. (You also chuckle inside because that kid speaks his own language! He said he hopes Hoho gives him a bomb bag and a boomerang.)…

December via Instagram

Happy New Year! Right now I am either still asleep or cleaning up my art room in preparation for this Friday’s 2nd Annual Birthday Crafty Night. (Probably still sleeping. Yay for days off!) I am not much of a “New Year’s” person, but I DO love me a good birthday. So I suppose I can…
