School’s Out For Summer

Hey everyone! I can’t believe it’s already the last day of school for my 2 kiddos. This year has been a roller coaster to say the least. Between virtual school, going in person, masks and getting Covid, they have thrived. I’m very proud with how they have handled it all. They have been counting down the days until Summer all week long. I’m looking forward to sleeping in and not being on a schedule. The boys are looking forward to swimming, traveling and playing with friends. It will be nice to finally have some normalcy this summer. Have a fun summer everyone!

Green Succulent Pattern

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a great Easter! We had a lovely day full of good food, Easter egg hunts and family. I recently got this really cute succulent planter from Home Depot and it was a great center piece on my kitchen island. I have been really obsessed with succulents lately. I love that they are all different shapes, colors and sizes. I really like having greenery in my house and it really boosts my mood. I started drawing this pattern of succulents as a doodle and then it turned into a week long project. It is definitely something different than I usually create, but I really enjoyed making it. This print is available in my Society6 and Redbubble shops. Enjoy!

Portrait of E.B.

Hey everyone! 2 days until Easter! Here is a cute portrait of the Easter Bunny that I created this week. I drew it in Procreate while I had some downtime. I wanted to create a little portrait in a gold frame of Ms. Easter Bunny with some moody wall paper in the background. This piece is definitely a little moody with whole ton of cuteness. I hope everyone has a great Easter! Enjoy!

Spring Easter Chick

Hey everyone! It’s crazy to think that Easter is less than a week away. The weather is beautiful and all the flowers are blooming. It’s shaping up to be a great Easter Sunday. I’m looking forward to a yummy Easter feast, delicious candy and hiding Easter eggs. What’s your favorite part of Easter? Here is a doodle that I drew this past week of this cute chick. I created this fun Spring Easter art in Procreate. Enjoy!

Pastel Easter Eggs

Hi everyone! Spring is finally here. It’s great hearing the birds singing, flowers blooming and the weather warming up. I love it! It’s definitely boosting my mood. We just finished up spring break here in KC. I started looking ahead on the calendar and couldn’t believe that Easter is only 2 weeks away. I feel like it has snuck up on me. Does anyone else feel that way? Here is a quick digital drawing that I did to get into the Easter spirit. My youngest son loves hiding Easter eggs, so I thought I would do a drawing of those. I quite like how they turned out. These colorful eggs are now in my Society6 and Redbubble shops. Enjoy!

Find Joy in the Ordinary

Hey everyone! It is finally starting to warm up around here. Yay for Spring! I love seeing the flowers starting to emerge from the ground, hearing the birds chirp and being able to open the windows. It’s the little things that make me happy and I am finding joy in them. I love Spring because it just feels like a new start every year. This year especially feels different because of Covid. It feels like there is some hope and a light at the end of the tunnel. I hope the year keeps looking up! This piece was drawn in Procreate and I knew that I wanted to incorporate colorful flowers. I wanted it to scream Spring and it does just that. Enjoy!

Birthday Crocodile

Today is a special day! It is my youngest son’s 6th birthday. I can’t believe he’s 6! He is in Kindergarten and has grown so much this past year. It’s crazy to think I have been not working (except freelance) for 6 years now. How is this possible! Well my youngest son is obsessed with animals, parties, donuts and anything video game related. I wanted to make a cute party croc in honor of his birthday. I created this fun crocodile in Procreate and really love how he turned out. Happy Birthday Goober!

 

Good Thing

Hey everyone! It’s been super cold here in Kansas City this past week. I guess you could say a polar vortex. Yesterday morning was -15. I don’t think its been that cold here the whole 30 years that I have lived here. While scrolling through the web trying to stay warm, I saw a pillow that had this phrase on it. I really loved it and knew that I wanted to make some art with it. One of my favorite things are flowers and thought that it would pair well with the phrase. It definitely screams Spring and I’m so ready for it to be here instead of Winter. I just added it to my shops on prints and products.
