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.…

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…

A Little Story About a Story

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…

Florida Trip

A couple of weeks ago we went to Florida to visit friends for a week. Well, it was supposed to be a week. But car trouble made it two weeks. (Really though, I can think of worse places to get stranded!) We got to spend a day at Disney and met Tinkerbell twice. (Flynn was…
