Happy Monday everyone! Today marks the 7th week of quarantine for our family. This past weekend has been pretty good for us. We were able to get some projects around the house done, yard work and haircuts for my boys and the dog. It feels like we got a lot accomplished. I also was able to get some watercolor paintings done. I’m not going to lie…it felt great to just sit and paint and tune out everything even if it was just a couple of hours. It definitely boosted my mood for the week. It’s amazing how just doing something you love and enjoy can do that. This painting was just for fun and hopefully I will be able to get it up on my shops soon. Enjoy!
January is almost over and that means Valentines Day is just around the corner. I have been trying to continue to create new Valentine art work. Here is another cute piece that I created this past week. I have always had a soft spot for Yetis ever since I saw Bumble in the Rudolph tv special growing up. I know it’s weird, since he was the monster trying to capture Rudolph and his friends. But I always thought he was pretty cool after he got that out of his system and was nice to everyone. This piece features a yeti holding a heart just in time for Valentines Day. I drew this out digitally using Procreate. I have this now available in my Society6 and Redbubble shops on art prints and product.
Hey everyone! The weather here in Kansas City has been a little nutty lately. 50 degrees one day then a snow day the next. I just can’t keep up with it. It’s showing snow here in the forecast the next 3 days. This mama is praying we don’t have any more snow days. Fingers crossed…lol! I drew this sweet little piece a couple of days ago using the Procreate. I wanted to create more Valentines Day art and keep practicing lettering. I wanted to keep this simple to let the lettering stand out, but I did add little extra pizzaz in the background. Hopefully this brings a smile to your face if you are having dreary weather today! This sweet art is available on products in my Society6 and Redbubble shops.

I can’t believe Christmas is only 12 days away! I feel like it was just Thanksgiving. It’s funny how time does that! We have had a busy week at my house. In between appointments and errands, I managed to squeeze in some downtime to draw. This winter woodland scene was just the break I needed. I really love how it turned out and I hope you enjoy it too!
And now for my second post of the day! Here is a quick doodle that I made using Procreate. It’s all things Halloween! My two sons are obsessed with Halloween and the main reason is trick or treating. So this drawing is dedicated to them and their love of all things candy related. They would eat candy for every meal if I would let them. I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!
It’s Hocus Pocus season! I had to create something to go along with one of my favorite movies. I loved watching it when I was a little girl and still love watching it every year. I wanted to continue lettering, so I made sure to practice using my own handwriting for the phrase. I tried to keep the hat and the overall picture simple so the lettering would shine. I like how it turned out, but I will definitely keep working on my hand lettering. Enjoy!
Hey Everyone! Here is a quick floral pattern that I whipped up over the weekend. It started out as just a doodle and grew. I drew it out digitally and painted it with watercolors digitally. I tried to stick with fresh vibrant colors. I really love the vibe of the overall finished piece and I can’t wait to see it on products. Enjoy!
Good morning everyone! It’s Labor Day weekend and I can’t wait to relax the next couple of days. Here is a sketch I posted on social media while I was working on it. I knew I wanted it to have a watercolor feel, but I wasn’t sure on the colors I was going to use. So I thought painting it digitally would be the best option. It allows me to mess up and change things unlike physically painting it. I decided to keep the colors very fall inspired, of course! I drew this because I got a little taste of fall this past week and now I’m ready for it to be here. Enjoy!
Hey everyone! Lately I have been working on invitations to add to my Etsy shop. I have been having good luck with a few of my invites and want to add some more! I saw this theme floating around on Pinterest for a baby shower and thought it was adorable. I wanted to make a cute and playful version of this theme. I drew out the the little oranges and all the other elements in my sketch book. I then used one of my programs to digitally watercolor them in. I knew I wanted to keep it pretty simple and let the oranges shine, but I knew I needed something to in the background. I decided to do a simple gingham print to keep it basic but lend a farmhouse feel. I love how it turned out and it’s probably one of my favorite invites I have made to date! If you would like to purchase a digital file of this invite, here is the link: https://www.etsy.com/listing/716723752/a-little-cutie-is-on-the-way-baby-shower?ref=listings_manager_grid
