Colored Pencil Progress

I started off strong with this drawing and my progress has sort of dwindled to nonexistence. Which seems to be the norm with me. (Who wants to place a bet for how long this will sit unfinished in my desk?) I had so much working on the kids, but that grass is killing me! And…

The Comedians

First of all… I love these two!!!! Goodness they’re cute. It’s been MONTHS since I’ve done a Comedians post. It’s long overdue. I think it’s funny that this time around Flynn has more quotes than Juniper. I think I just remember more of his quotes because it didn’t talk at all for SO LONG that it…

Colored Pencils

It has been YEARS since I have played with colored pencils. Heck, I haven’t even owned a pencil sharpener in… I don’t remember how long. Crazy, I know. Well, last week I bought some colored pencils and an awesome pencil sharpener (that I am absolutely in love with) and picked a photo to draw. Colored…

Two New Paintings

First of all, I suck at coming up with blog post names. “Two New Paintings”? How boring is that? I finished up these two paintings last week. The one on the right is 5×7, and the one on the left is 4×4. (Fun Fact: It happens to be the first Instagram painting I’ve actually sold.…

NaNoWriMo Update

I did it! I won Camp NaNoWriMo! Alright I admit, I feel like I cheated. Towards the end of the month when it became obvious that I wouldn’t reach 50k words, I lowered my word goal to 35k. But I don’t feel bad about it because I’m really super crazy excited about the progress I…

A Couple More Finished

Can I just start by say, I am RIDICULOUSLY tired. I was up way too late last night finishing a book. I wasn’t expecting to read the whole thing in one night… It was ‘The Black Cauldron’ by Lloyd Alexander if you are curious. I finished ‘The Book of Three’ last weekend and I can’t…

A Little Story About a Story

In high school I started writing a story. It was a TERRIBLE story, absolutely awful. But I loved it, and so I’d sit in the back of math class and scribble away in my composition notebook. I never did finish it. And then in college I found what was left of that notebook (It had…

Florida Trip

A couple of weeks ago we went to Florida to visit friends for a week. Well, it was supposed to be a week. But car trouble made it two weeks. (Really though, I can think of worse places to get stranded!) We got to spend a day at Disney and met Tinkerbell twice. (Flynn was…

Fabric Doodles Progress

I’m home!! The past 2 weeks have been absolute craziness. Our fun Florida vacation turned into a car soap opera. Our car broke down, we bought another one, the second one broke down, we fixed them BOTH and came home. So now we have two cars, and no money! So the bad news is, I…
