SnapShot

Missouri weather can be so unpredictable and moody sometimes. I usually have half a dozen jackets left in my car from cold mornings turned warm, sunny afternoons. (And because apparently it is too hard to just bring my jacket back in the house when I get home from work.) After church on Sunday it was…

Doodle Portraits

Have you ever had an idea in your head that ended up turning out WAY cuter than you had anticipated? I didn’t think I’d have so much fun with these silly Doodle Portrait illustrations. And I certainly never imagined they’d be so well received. I’ve painted 23 so far and I have 24 more to…

A Fail to Remember

A couple of weeks ago Juniper was flipping through a kid’s craft book and wanted to try the ‘bubble painting’ project. We gave it a go, and as you can see, it didn’t exactly turn out. In fact, the only reason I’m sharing these photos is because Flynn’s unimpressed face is killing me. And I…

Etsy Love

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 I’ve finally made up my mind that it is time to start blogging regularly again. I miss reading back on old posts and scrolling through photos of all the fun things we’ve been up to. It’s time to start writing…

Everything Is AWESOME

WE HAD SO MUCH FUN WITH OUR HALLOWEEN COSTUMES THIS YEAR!!!! Ok… I might be a little too excited. But it was so fun making these AND wearing them. We went to trunk-or-treat at our church last night and had a blast. Oh my goodness, have I mentioned how fun these costumes are?? I am…

Been a bit busy…

A couple of weeks ago I had a sale on Instagram and I’ve been filling all of my free time with doodles and painting. It’s been busy! I am blown away by how much people love my silly artwork, and incredibly grateful for all of the fun pieces I get to work on this month.…

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.…
