Doodle Girl Pins

I spent pretty much my entire weekend doodling on the living room floor with Juniper. My sister-in-law gave me a copy of Craft-a-Doodle for my birthday and we just got around to playing with it. I love that book! The prompts are fun and Juniper’s doodles make me smile. My favorite part about it though…


Work in Progress

I feel like its been forever since I had a chance to paint. I’m working on this mini right now that will be given as a wedding gift to this cute couple from their photographer. I always love doing commissions for wedding photographers, because their source photos are BEAUTIFUL! And good source photos make me…


Blogging Is Funny

BLOG. It’s even a funny word. I’ve got to admit that I have been rather conflicted about this “blog” of mine for a while now. I keep going back and forth between “what is the point, just delete it all and be done” and “if I just made the time to put a little effort…


Star Wars Junebug

It seems like all of my posts lately are going to start with “A few weeks ago…” Hah! I just have not been in much of a blogging mood lately. But look at this dress I made a few weeks ago! Juniper had been bugging me to make her a Star Wars dress for forever.…


I’ll Never Love You

I did this mini painting a few weeks ago as a gift for my husband, and he LOVED it. It’s the best thing ever! And if you are wondering why a gift that says “I’ll never love you” would be so fantastic, let me explain. Have you ever heard of Video Game High School? It’s…


Morning Cake

Me this morning: “Oh look, I’m totally going to be on time for work! It’s time for me to leave now. I think I’ll decorate a cake with Juniper.” Yup. I was late for work because I decided to decorate a cake. (Totally worth it.) Oma’s birthday was yesterday, and we are going to visit…


Juniper’s First Year

I have always been a huge fan of journals. I could write a whole series of blog posts about how awesome they are. (Maybe I will. Would anyone be interested in that?) I LOVE going back and reading my old journals. I might even venture to say they’re my favorite books on our shelves. But…



I don’t get to draw very often these days. I enjoyed working on this piece for a friend of mine. I should work with pencil more often. I forget how much fun it is.


Painting Hearts

Juniper has a very detail oriented personality. Everything has to go EXACTLY how she pictures it in her head. If we are doing a project from a book, it needs to look just like the photo. You have to answer her questions exactly how she thinks you should. (That one is tricky. I’m not a…


{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…
