This week we've been putting the brush to the grindstone or however that saying goes. The tiny person has taken an intense interest in painting and I have taken an intense interest in not upsetting her. As such I wanted this activity to be mutually beneficial so under each of her paintings is one of… Continue reading Painting a day
School has started! I am tired! And the only cure is chocolate. So I guess you could say I am a "lazy" baker. There are times where I bake from scratch but honestly I have never found a brownie recipe that I like- so I resort to brownie box mix. On the back of the… Continue reading Bad Brownie
Hello internet! Confession: I haven't been working on a lot of art recently. I have been feverishly working on finishing my master's project (AND I FINISHED IT! YESSSS!), preparing mentally for the start of another school year, and throwing a rad Robot Moana Birthday party. Anyways, Eric asked me to draw some zentangles for him… Continue reading Art Progress?
Happy Monday to all! Eric and I have been gone all weekend arriving home this afternoon. We. Are. Tired. Baby girl decided to be an awful sleeper this weekend. At least she makes up for it by being cute, right? Today's challenge was: quick draw- portrait style. We began by completing a basic drawing exercise-… Continue reading Melee Monday: Quick Draw- Portrait Style
Baby don't hurt me, don’t hurt me, no more. Great, now I will have that song in my head for the whole weekend. Don't forget to vote on last week's Melee Monday/Face Off/whatever you want to call it post. Whoever gets the most votes gets ice cream. I NEED THAT ICE CREAM. Currently we are… Continue reading What is love?

Whut up! Eric and I took last week off to visit Lake Michigan, so we sorry for our internet absence. We wanted to post but we were quite busy making sure our toddler didn't fall down any stairs/fall face first into Lake Michigan. Both happened at least once... and fortunately we were around and paying… Continue reading Melee Monday: Jo vs. Eric
Happy Thursday! Wait, its Thursday right? For the record, I was convinced it was Monday on Tuesday. I was walking around going "Monday Monday Monday!" and Eric was like; "uhhh you know its Tuesday right?" Ooops. To begin, Iris's car is still not done. So don't get super excited. It is assembled and she has… Continue reading Picture Overload
Last Tuesday I left you with a picture of this: While we were visiting in Eastpointe we took a walk and found this cozy coupe in the trash. We claimed it and decided to give it a makeover. It's not done yet, which is so annoying for someone who is as impatient as I am.… Continue reading On the road
I have a really bad habit of buying a sketchbook, using 3 pages, putting it somewhere and forgetting about it, and then buying a new sketchbook. Its the ciiiiiiircle of life a sketchbook. This lil' guy has stayed with me for a pretty decent amount of time. I am so proud. Since I have… Continue reading Sketch
