{Etsy Love} Pride and Prejudice

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8   I’ve been invited to a movie night at a good friend’s house this Friday night. We’ll be watching Austenland. I figured I better actually READ Pride and Prejudice before then, so the movie makes sense. Well, I may have…

The Quest for the Macaron

I have been intrigued by french macarons for forever, mostly because they look like tiny colorful hamburgers! I finally gave them a try last week and, as you can see, the first batch didn’t exactly turn out… But I was totally expecting them to be a disaster so it was all good! One batch got…

Do you want to build a snowman?

YES. Yes I do. I’ve never been much of a fan of winter… but I DO love a good snowman! We got a ridiculous ton of snow yesterday. I even got to work from home. And all day I just kept thinking, ‘we are going to build the biggest snowman ever!’ Well, we finally got…

Minis

I got to do two more mini paintings last month. My favorite! I know, I said Instagram paintings were my favorite.. but both of them are! I just love the tiny sizes. They’re so cute. Speaking of cute. When I showed the girl on the right her finished painting, her 6 year old son said…

The Comedians

Flynn (Half asleep on Christmas Eve) “I hope Hoho gives me a bomb bag and a boomerang…” He kept jumping off of things and yelling “HOOKAH!” and it took me foooooorever to realize he was saying “Hookshot”. Obviously. “I want to go to sleep AND play with those.” (his blocks) “Well, you can’t do both”…

New Instagram Paintings

Sometime last December I had a little Instagram contest just for fun. These are the four paintings I did for the winners! I think Instagram photos are my new favorite things to paint. I still need to get these in the mail. It’s on my very long list of things that I need to do.…

Juniper2

Five Years Old

I’m just now getting around to blogging about Juniper’s 5th birthday party. She asked for a Star Party, which it turns out was a very appropriate 5th birthday theme! I love how her invitation turned out. It’s crazy how much she’s changed, and yet she still looks like the same kid. I didn’t take many…

Warm Things

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you *drumroll* the ugliest rice warmer bag things ever! (Seriously, what are these things called? Juniper just calls them “warm things”, I’ll go with that.) I have been meaning to sew the kids their own Warm Things so they’d stop stealing mine. We finally made them the other night, and…

Paintings from 2013

8.5×11 5×7 Instagram Minis I thought it would be fun to post every painting I did in 2013, and oh man! There are so many!! Last year was amazing and I’m so grateful for all of the opportunities I had to bust out my paints. I don’t think I’ve ever produced this many drawings in…
