I have bunnies on the brain.  I really shouldn’t because I’m a home owner and we don’t take too kindly to them eating up our lawns.  But if I see them anywhere else, they get an “aww” from me, every time.  I have been sketching them over and over and one of them turned into this unicycle watercolor print.  Now available in my shop.

Is there anything you think is the cutest as long as it isn’t in your own backyard?  Do tell.

There is a yearly drawing event called Inktober (#inktober) and it’s going on the entire month of October.  The participants grab whatever drawing tool that uses ink and go for it with an Inktober drawing.  It doesn’t have to be daily, it can be anything you like.  It’s not too late to join either, come draw with me!

I didn’t have a daily goal but so far I’ve made a drawing every day.  We’ll see how long I can keep this up.  I love the art community and having little challenges like this.

Giving me yet another kick in the pants that I sorely need. You should follow me on Twitter or Instagram, I always post them there.

 

I Think It’s Time to Let You Know…

…we are expecting a little baby girl in March!!  Things have been exactly the same as they were with Addy, meaning I was knocked out asleep for the whole first three months.  I am now at 15 weeks and I have a burst of energy.  Go go go mode!  Nesting is setting in, we have lots to do when it comes to making up our now guest room into a nursery/guest room combo.

The cat is officially out of the bag, our trio is turning into a quartet and we are so excited.  I need to get on purpose with taking more pictures, my mood/sleepiness and this cold have been getting in the way.

Hope your week is going great, one more day til Friday!

Right when the temperature dropped letting us know summer was really gone, baby got a cold and then I caught it too.  This thing was/is nasty.  I’m still battling it but the upside is it gave me something to draw/paint.  It first hit me on Wednesday amd Saturday I was completely out.  I quarantined myself to our room so I could pass out and nap to recover. Just me, the humidifier, iPad + Netflix, some tea (that made my sore throat worse actually) and non-stop TP for my non-stop nose.  Glad to be on the other side of it even though I’m not 100%.

I need to stock up on more anti-bacterial from Bath and Body Works.

Help, I’m being buried by to do lists.

Some are fun and some  are just pure productivity so we don’t get overwhelmed in this little household of ours.  Let’s talk about summer now that it’s over.  One of our dreams came true for a family vacation to Disneyland.  Baby girl was overjoyed and in awe of everything.  So was I, not gonna lie.  It was pretty much two big kids and one toddler on this trip, Mickey ears and all.  Right after the trip I had a birthday, one more cycle around the sun.  I’m self reflecting so much more now and although I’ve almost always used my old self as a gauge for improving, now it is in overdrive.  Anything I can change to make things better (organizing, painting, time management etc) I’m making the effort to make that change.

I am completely obsessed with YouTube and my latest obsession is Lipstick With Some Sunshine.  She reminds me so much of my cousin Tiffany, my first beauty guru.  She showed me my first foundation which I rushed to get a Prescriptives Tint.  Remember them?  Are they even still in business?  Need to look that up.  Now LWSS is the business, I love her aesthetic, style and just full on makeup curation.  Love.
