Yay! I'm really excited about this one. It's been a while since I've been really excited about painting + thanks to this one I am! (Did I just say really excited way too many times?) haha :)
I've already changed it some since I took this picture. I got rid of the camera in the bottom left (way too literal/identifiable for me) + I added a little to the top right. I'm having fun with the collage elements + I'm thinking a lot about layering, stacking, meshing...
Just a sketch of stuff on my messy desk...crappy photo + a hot pink finger nail. Yep.
We have a park right next to our condo + it's one of my favorite places. We take Vera for walks, take funny pictures of ourselves, play around or just sit + talk. There's usually no one around either. It's so nice :)
-Zac + I have been doing the love language challenge (sort of) + one of the questions was "I wish we had the camera with us when..." He replied "Have you met my wife? :D" He thinks he's so funny ;) It was pretty cute ♥
-Getting Jessica Lea Mayfield tickets + finding out that My Morning Jacket (AND...The Civil Wars) will be at music fest! Woo hoo. I just hope they don't get rained out like most bands that I REALLY wanna see.
-Playing around with Zac + Vera in the park + taking pictures :)
-Double date dinner with my bestie (getting to see her sweet baby bump!) + our hubbies
-A beautiful day to sketch with Memphis Urban Sketchers at Confederate Park
-Debating whether or not to get on the interstate because it was backed up. I made the wrong decision (of course, haha) + got stuck for an hour...an HOUR!!! There may have been a few horn honks + "what the heck are you doin?" + "ugh, I HATE memphis drivers" comments too. Yep.
-The moment I realized Jack White tickets were sold out + how did I not even know he was coming?!?! WTF.
-Crazy bumps all over my lips. Is it seriously possible to get wind burn from a fan? I dunno what's going on, but it's some pretty painful stuff people :(
-Spilling a HUGE cup of tea ALL OVER myself + my car. I'm just glad I didn't ruin my phone :) *You should have seen the back of my pants, haha.
This backpack is so great (I just wish it wasn't so expensive, dang!):
Did you know you can create your own fabric? I am so glad I found this website. I already ordered some with our wedding photos on it for the wedding guest list quilt I am making. I can't wait to get started on it now. I also ordered this button fabric for it too. I'll post pictures once it all comes in! Sew cute ;)
One of my favorite things is to see other artist's studio spaces. This sewing room is crazy good:
Have you seen Kelly Rae's new studio? I've been enjoying seeing her fix it up via her instagram/twitter. I dream of having a really awesome studio one day.
I've only had a chance to look at the first few pages, but I am so excited about this special Organizing issue of Martha Stewart Living. It's soooooo inspiring :)
