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…

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…

Sunday Afternoon

On Sunday, Shaun took the kids to the farm to visit Great Oma, and I had the entire afternoon to myself. And goodness that was nice! The weather was absolutely beautiful, perfect for painting on the back deck. I don’t get to be outside as much as I’d like, since I work full time. But…

What I’d Like For Mother’s Day

I recently discovered Alisa Burke and I seriously adore her blog. It’s just so lovely and full of creative inspiration. She offers a lot of online art classes that I’ve had my eye on for a while, and right now they’re all $10 off for Mother’s Day. I thought I’d share these real quick just…

Glasses Girl

I’ve had this idea in my head for a while, to turn my watercolor illustrations into hoop art. I mentioned it to Shaun once, a long while ago, and that’s about as far as that went. Fast forward an undetermined amount of time.. Last night I sat down in the middle of my art room…
