Juniper’s Latest Paintings

Juniper and I have been doing quite a bit of painting this week. I’ll say “Here you sit and paint while I clean up the art room a bit”, but I almost always end up sitting and watching her work. She is just so dang entertaining. The other night I taught her how to use…

Oh Dreams…

Disclaimer: I might be the only one who thinks this is funny. So you are probably looking at that image thinking, “What the what??!” Let me explain. The other night I was looking through an old journal, from when Shaun and I were engaged. About a month before our wedding I had a crazy dream,…

{Etsy Love} Random Lovelies

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 I am a sucker for notepads, and this one is particularly sweet. I love love love succulents but I can’t seem to keep them alive. (I can’t keep anything alive actually.) I can’t kill these though! It’s always Awesome Time…

Gems Gems Gems

When I get stressed out I doodle. It helps me to stay focused. To some people I may look like I’m totally not paying attention or whatever, but doodling actually helps me stay productive. If I don’t fill my head up with all sorts of random things, I just can’t get anything done! Back in…

I keep trying to come up with something to say along with this post, but I’m still feeling sick and my brain is just not working today. I hate being sick… The kids are both feeling better now though, its so nice. I just can’t seem to kick it. Maybe I’ll just call it a…

Handmade Gift Exchange

A few weeks ago I signed up for a Handmade Gift Exchange hosted by Craftaholics Anonymous. I was paired up with a woman named Dolly, and I had fun sewing up this cute bag for her! The inside pockets scared me for some silly reason, so I made a coordinating zipper pouch instead. I’ve never…

The Comedian

“I already been one, then two and then three and now I’m four. And when I’m five my favorite color is going to be purple and when I’m six it’s going to be green. When I get to seven my favorite color is… black?” “Daddy been mean two times.” “Daddy was mean twice?” “No. Daddy…

Tie Dye is Fun to Paint

Last week on my sister-in-law’s birthday, her husband posted a photo of her hula hooping in an awesome tie dyed dress on her Facebook page. It was one of those “Oh man I need to paint that” moments, so this super-last-minute birthday present was born! It turns out, tie dye is super fun to paint,…

Surprise #3 – Rice Warmer

The third mini giveaway surprise was the hardest to decide on, since I don’t actually know Desiree! From our email exchange she seemed a lot like me, so I decided to make something I knew I would like (seems logical to me), and that I’ve been wanting to make for a while now. Alida posted…
