It’s All A Bunch Of Hocus Pocus

Hi all! There is only 2 weeks until Halloween! We watched my favorite Halloween movie last night, Hocus Pocus. I know that it has blown up in popularity recently, but I have loved it since it first came out. It’s very nostalgic to me! I decided to make a lettering piece out of one of the quotes from the movie. It’s possibly one of my favorite scenes from the movie. I created this piece digitally using Procreate. I wanted the quote to be front and center by keeping the the other graphics pretty simple. I just added this piece to my Society6 and Redbubble shops on prints and products. Enjoy!

Happy Pumpkin Spice Season

Hey everyone! What is the first thing you think of when fall arrives? Pumpkin spice everything, of course! That is one of the things that I look forward during Fall. I’m not a huge coffee drinker but I do love pumpkin flavored desserts. Every Thanksgiving, I make a pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese frosting. I look forward to it every year! Even my brother, the pastry chef, requests me to make it. So I thought I would celebrate this wonderful flavor season with a drawing. I wanted to keep it pretty simple and classic. I think this would look great as wall art and home decor. I will definitely have to add it to my shops!

Free Spirit

Happy Wednesday! I have made it mid week of my sons first week back to all in school. Let me tell you it has been the best week of my life since March. I’m happy, my boys are happy to be back and it feels great to have an inch of normalcy back. I have been able to get so much done in the past couple of days. I saw a local boutique by me post an image of the words “Free Spirit” and knew I wanted to make a drawing out of it. I have definitely felt like a spirit the past couple of days and finally feel like me again. Free spirit is hand lettered and I drew the flowered background in Procreate. I wanted the flowers to feel Mum inspired since they are every where during the fall. I’m not going to lie, I buy quite a few pots of them every fall. I love them! I just uploaded this to my Society6 and Redbubble shops on prints and cool products.

Hello Autumn

Guess what everyone…..It’s officially Fall! No more wishing it was finally here. I’m ready to eat and drink everything apple and pumpkin related. Plus, I’m anxiously awaiting some cooler temps so I can wear my boots and sweaters. This weekend it will be in the 80’s in KC. Hopefully after this weekend we can finally get rid of these summer temps and just enjoy some cool, crisp weather. I think my new pup Izzy is looking forward to the cooler temps also. She is always hot and likes to lay on our air conditioner vents. So we are looking forward to some fall walks. Here is a piece that I drew digitally in my Procreate app. I wanted to make a silhouette of a leaf to house the phrase “Hello Autumn”. Plus, I included some doodles of fall related items to fill in the voids. I love the end result! Enjoy!

Ready For Fall

Hey everyone! The weather is finally cooling off in Kansas City and it feels amazing. It is so much more enjoyable to be outside. And since we got Izzy, we have been outside a lot more. Fall is my favorite season and I look forward to it every year. I can’t wait to wear sweaters with boots, pick out pumpkins, drink warm apple cider and light fall scented candles. I’m not exaggerating, it truly is my favorite.  I drew this digitally the minute there was just a slight crisp in the air. The font is my own handwriting and I love how it turned out. I’m so ready for fall….is anyone else?

Wild & Free

Hey everyone! So it’s been a pretty heartbreaking week for our family. We recently lost our beloved pup Moe. It’s been really hard on our family since it happened so unexpectedly. We really loved him and he was a big part of our family. It probably hit me the hardest. He was my big fluffy fur baby. We will forever miss him! I drew this drawing the day he passed away without know what would happen after I had sketched it out. But after he passed, the phrase seemed so fitting for the situation. He is now free from pain and he will always have his wild spunk where ever he is. I decided to just paint some pretty watercolor flowers making a circular frame around the phrase. It really turned out pretty and was very therapeutic for me to paint this past week. Enjoy!

Lazy Day

Hey everyone! I don’t know if you are like me, but today I have been just dragging my feet doing anything today. I am just tired with no motivation. And the worst is having to stop by the place I hate most, The Dentist. Don’t worry everyone, it wasn’t a bad visit! So today, I’m just going to go at my own pace. It is summer after all. Lazy days are always acceptable during the summer. I drew this using procreate. I just wanted to keep the lettering chunky, simple and to the point. Enjoy!

Sunshine On My Mind

Hey everyone! It’s supposed to be a dreary day here in KC today, but we really need the rain. My plants are looking forward to it!  It’s been so hot and the ground is so dry. My boys on the other hand are acting like the world is ending since they can’t have any pool time today. They definitely have sunshine on their minds at all times! I drew this last week during a little bit of downtime I had before a playdate we had. Summer is in full swing and it has been definitely nice to start seeing some friends and enjoying the sunshine together. I hope everyone’s summer is going great so far!

Chill Out Popsicle

Summer is here and pool time with friends has begun. Since the pools around us are limited or closed, it has been nice to have a couple of friends over to swim. Our favorite summer past time is swimming and then having a popsicle on the deck. Popsicles always seem to taste better when it’s hot outside. Yummy! I chose to put the phrase “chill out” on the popsicle, because I feel like I have to say it all the time to my boys. I guess you can say it’s my summer motto….lol! I created and sketched this out using Procreate. This cool piece is now in my Society6 and Redbubble shops. Enjoy!

Choose Happy

Hey everyone! I feel like this week I finally had a wave of creativity and have had many ideas just flowing out of my brain. It’s been really nice since it feels like I have hit a creative block during this quarantine. I have been having to force myself to sit and draw. So I will definitely embrace this spurt of creativity. Here is one of the doodles that I did last night on my iPad using the Procreate app. It’s nothing too fancy, but I like how it turned out. This message does really come at a good time! We should all try to choose happiness during these uncertain times. I am really trying to practice this daily. What kind of things are you trying to do to keep happy? I have been trying to keep creative, baking my favorite treats, enjoying my garden and making simple home improvements. I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe! Enjoy!
