January Goals

Happy New Year! I’m not much of a ‘New Year’ girl. I’ve just never been into the whole thing. I was crazy super tired on New Year’s Eve, so I went to bed around 9 or so. And we spent our New Year’s Day eating Taco Bell and watching hours of anime on Netflix. (I…

Photo Ornaments

The year we got married, my mother-in-law gave us a lovely heart-shaped ornament with one of our wedding photos in it. We’ve been adding new ornaments to our collection every year since then, and it has definitely become my favorite Christmas tradition. After 8 years, our tree is starting to fill up nicely. Just thinking…

Doodle-Portraits

I’m done! Mostly anyway…

I’ve pretty much finished up all of the artwork I sold last month. I have a few more people who are holding off on theirs for various reasons, but other than those I’m all finished! I’ve painted over 50 of these Doodle Portraits. CRAZY! I’ll be painting a handful more for Christmas presents, but I…

I meant to post these photos on Monday, but I’ve been crazy busy all week. I don’t understand how it is already Thursday… But we have fun weekend plans so I’m not complaining. (MY fun weekend plans mostly involve sleeping. I’m a big party girl.) On our way to church last Sunday it started snowing.…

Katniss Doodle Portrait

A few months ago my husband had a dream where he was a contestant on Britain’s Got Talent. He sang a song with a big, buff, shirtless guy with dreadlocks and the lady from Sound of Music. Their amazing act had the whole audience going. And what song did they do? Imagine singing the Spiderman…

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…

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…
