What’s on my mind? Wednesday. 1/27/16

A couple days ago I said I wasn’t going to drink coffee for two weeks… It’s a thing I do when I feel like I have become dependent on coffee and crave it at all hours of the day.

I found other outlets, like lots and lots of tea. Green…

I had a rich, sweet, creamy cup of coffee and some extra hot chocolate left over for Ory. He got up long enough…

Inspiration and Motivation Monday 1/18/16

When I was a little girl trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted to do, my dream was to become a sports photographer and a professional softball player ( I was a bit of a tomboy and “jock-ette”). A few years passed, and that dream soon changed and I just wanted to be a photographer, a photographer of beautiful things, portraits, fashion and love. That love of photography never left my blood, now I just want to photograph, food and beautiful things. I, like so many other people have been influenced and awed by…

Illustration Friday 1/15/16

So this past week at Illustration Friday the topic was TROPICAL. Super exciting huh? Well I wanted to keep the illustration food related so I did some tropical foods in a wonderful beach setting. This little watercolor really just made me depressed that it’s January, freezing outside and that it is supposed to snow tomorrow. waaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh! Oh well! At least it was sunny today…

What’s on my mind? Wednesday. 1/13/2016
