Juniper’s Story

About a month or so ago, I was putting Juniper to bed and she decided that she was going to read her own bedtime story. So she picked up this tiny piece of folded paper, and began to read. A few sentences in, I HAD to stop her and go grab a pen to write…

Daisies – Take 3

I just couldn’t settle for the first version of this daisy silhouette that I painted last week. It was too dark and cartoonish looking, and it didn’t look “watercolory” enough for me. So I tried again. I liked the flowers from the second version much better, but the background still wasn’t anything special. The colors…

365 Days Outside > 239-245

Day 239 It was long dark when I got home from work today, but Juniper and I grabbed some flashlights and went exploring outside. Juniper filled a bucket with various findings and when we went back inside she decided to paint some rocks while I played with leaves. Day 240 Another day of not getting…

Halloween!

Like most little girls, and lots of grown men, Juniper is quite obsessed with My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. As soon as I saw this ridiculously awesome Rainbow Dash costume on craftiness is not optional, I knew Juniper needed to be a pony. And since Flynn made a perfect little sidekick, we went with…

The Comedian 3

“Mommy, I really want to be a horse, and you can be a rainbow.” “Juniper, you are a big girl, you can wipe your own butt.” “No. I’m a big BOY and boys are not good at wiping.” “You know why I’m doing ABCs? Because they make me happy.” “My room is a little bit…

A bit on faith.

My faith is not something that I have an easy time talking about, it’s very personal to me. But I’ve been feeling the need to write it down, express it somehow. I am a Christian. I believe in Jesus Christ as my Savior. I believe in doing good works, and in serving others. I believe…

Space Silhouette

I’ve decided that I am in love with masking fluid. I tend to be a very messy artist, so I loved not having to stress about keeping the edges clean. You can see how messy it got in my last post about watercolors. It sure doesn’t smell nice, but it dries quickly and peels off…

365 Days Outside > 230-238

So it has been a while since I’ve posted a 365 Days Outside update. Of course, that doesn’t mean we haven’t been going outside! It just means I have a ton of pics I haven’t shared yet. I’m going to split them up between today and Friday, and then hopefully I’ll be back on track.…
