Hello and HAPPY Tuesday!! Can you believe it's been a week already, really where did it go. No more blinking for me, I'm trying to slow down the days. Well, you know what today means, we head over to Elizabeth's to share what's in our cup today. As you can see it's not about what's in my cup today but WHERE is my cup. We got a new dishwasher, YIPPEEE!! It's been a year and half since the last one broke and I have wanted another one. I don't usually mind doing dishes, but it means some days my sink/counter always have dishes in/on them. I like knowing they can just go right into the dishwasher and not be seen. Hope you get a kick out of this Elizabeth, I try to come up with different ways to share each Tuesday. I already have next Tuesday's planned too, pretty sure you will like this it too. I can also relate to how you were feeling 2 weekends ago, my back has a kink in it and being a pain. Not sure what's wrong but hurts to sit for too long and in the mornings after sleeping. It doesn't hurt but it's a cramp of some kind that's just annoying and makes me walk/sit funny. Other then that I'm doing great and enjoying the spring like temps we've been having. See the post below from this past Friday, spring was in the air and still is today. YAY!!
Big THANK YOU again for all the wonderful support and kindness from everyone last week on my ATC. You've been so good to me and it warms my heart and keeps me motivated to keep going. Today though I am showing some other fun stuff along with a little ATC pictures.
here are my daily sketch papers, picked flowers as my theme this month. I actually got behind and whipped up most of these in one sitting. Sienna was next to me whipping up her own too. Click on the image to see them better. I will show these again next week, hope I can get them done, lol.
Here is some new way of making art with Sienna. SHE LOVED THIS!! We closed our eyes and took a crayon without looking at it and just scribbled till I said stop. We then picked another crayon without looking and did this 4 more times. Since she is 5 we used only 5 crayons. After each scribble we also turned the paper. Here are two of the ones we did, the rest she took home. LOVE!!
here is another art in a new way. We picked out 5 crayons ahead of time then drew whatever we wanted on it. Her side is the left and mine is the right. After each crayon we traded sides and drew something without looking at what the other was doing. Hope this makes sense. I liked that we could just make whatever we wanted and not know how it would come out. SHE LOVED THIS TOO!
Here are some owls that I'm obsessed with drawing right now. My new class with Junelle Jacobsen " Saturday Morning Blocks" just started and these were our first lesson. She is so fun to learn with, have taken several of her classes and love them. Her style is free and loose, more whimsy and not so perfect, I love this part!! I'm practicing/sketching and hope to show you some painted next week. Trying to take my time and just enjoy the process, no rush or stress. Might make these into ATC for all my Owl loving friends too, quite a few of them enjoy owls. Here are a few more peeks...
They are so much cuter in person, made some small ones to get a size for the ATC, so cute and tiny. I'm also trying to make them more funny looking, not serious, practice practice!!
Here is my newest ATC, loving the colors and splatters of paint on here!
here is what it looks like after I take off the masking tape. A tree, needs another branch on the left side maybe but I love making them. I forgot to take a picture but I splattered dots on it too. Made some more of these today and will probably keep one for my Project Life and just to keep. LOVE!
I'm really excited to share this with you today. It's my first 10 days of 30 Days of Lists. I am so glad to be doing these again, it's been a couple years. I am also happy I kept it simple, in the past I try to make it all pefect, fun, colorful, sketchy, but this year is just simple!! Click on the image to read the cards better and sorry for the glare. Each day I just picked out a random PL card from any of my kits and although some of them could have more written on them, kept it short and sweet. YAY!! Will share again after the next 10 days are done. The green title card will be decorated eventually too.
Whew, I squeezed it all in here. Just had to share all this fun with you, hope you made it thru and enjoyed it. Can't wait to see what everyone else will be sharing today, always something that inspires me, teaches me something new or brings a smile to my face. Remember to read the post below real quick just to see the cute little ones and our spring weather day. Their dad has surgery this Wednesday, extra prayers are much appreciated. THANK YOU!!
Have a great Tuesday and Elizabeth, thank you for being such a sweet and awesome host!!
