Precious Moments

Does anyone read the Precious Moments stories anymore? Or color in the coloring books? I know it's been a long time for me up until the day my husband came home from volunteering at the Salvation Army and handed me the Precious Moments 'Bible Stories' and Precious Moments 'Bedtime Stories', among other things. I couldn't …

Gene Wilder Tribute Drawing

You know when someone that I didn't really know personally but admired their work passes away, I always find myself wondering what their life must have been like behind closed doors. Did they have secrets? Did they feel accomplished? Were they actually boring people who only felt alive when they were allowed to pretend to be …

Cloud watching

The other day I was visiting a friend at her house. It was a surprisingly beautiful considering where I live.  Here the word hot is equivalent to humid. They are one in the same. And it's usually like that up until November and then it gets cold, but the fact that our bodies have been …

The Flash

This is my newest drawing on YouTube. I watched the first season on Netflix and was impressed. I like how they brought the character into our world now and Grant Gustin was a great choice to play Barry Allen. If you haven't watched the show yet and enjoy comic book heroes, you should check it …

Etsy Shop opened!

In addition to taking advice on starting a blog, I have also taken the advice of starting an Etsy shop for my coloring book images. (If you can't tell, I can be stubborn. I am working on that.) The images that are uploaded are also in the process or already made into (depends on the …

The taste of foot in mouth

You know that phrase 'Look before your leap'? If you haven't heard of it, it's basically a word of caution. Don't jump to conclusions. Don't make accusations before knowing the facts. Don't dive head first into something. Don't make assumptions. You know....the good advice that I just didn't follow this time to the guy with …

Throwback Thursday

I have another Throwback for you all today. It's a YouTube time lapse drawing I did right around the release of the first Hunger Games movie. I had read all three books in four days just before seeing the premier. So all the details of the story were fresh in my head. While reading them, …

One day

Yesterday I took myself and my kids to a sign language that was being offered in the next town over. When we got to the place we parked where I saw more cars and tried to find the right building. Naturally, we went in the wrong one at first. We were greeted with a smile …

The Swing Set

The other day I took my kids on a walk to the playground. It was nice outside, a bit overcast with a gentle breeze. There weren't many cars around so it made for a quieter walk. We walked along the small river that is there and saw turtles along the bank and heard squirrels chasing …

Death by standards

There is some kind of standard in our society that states; once you are 30, your life is over and you are too old to accomplish anything. Let's break down the average person's life up until 30. 0-2 years old- everyone spends the first couple years of their lives teething (ouch) being fed different textures …
