ATCs from friends

I received my ATCs in the mail a few days ago! So cute...

Wouldn't ya know, I'm sick and in bed again. SO, I'm not getting very much done but I AM watching lots of movies and drawing in my sketchbook. Hopefully I'll have more updates soon!

Pop-Up Cards and Good Company

Today I had the pleasure of my husband's company at the Recovery Cafe! Ever since I started volunteering there, we've talked about him going with me to see what it's all about, but it just hadn't happened. Since he's his own boss, he decided at the last minute to join me today! It was fun to show him the amazing new space, our classroom, and to introduce him to the folks I hang out with each Thursday afternoon. Wendy had planned to make pop-up cards for Valentine's Day, but we were both sick - therefore, we moved that lesson until today! Even Daniel made one... he calls it his "contemporary art piece." He really is a creative guy, and even though he was being a little silly, I think he had a good time. What a good sport!

I did a couple as well. One just because...

And one for an upcoming birthday...

Our home remodel is almost finished, so we're "moving" in the next few days. I might be a bit MIA until we're re-settled, but I'll keep you posted if anything exciting comes up! 

Thanks again for following me, commenting, and supporting me through this little blog. It seems really silly, but I feel like this blog, and YOU, help me stay somewhat motivated to be creative. So, thanks!

Love (the world).

This is the new piece I made for the Come Love the World event.

The second piece I donated is one you saw last summer

Come Love the World

Some friends of mine are putting on an event in California called Come Love the World. It is an event to raise awareness, support and prayer for local and global missions.
They asked if I'd like to donate some art for the merchandise store - and I always love donating work, so I donated a piece I already had plus created a new one (just because I felt like it)! I'll show you both in a little bit. 

If you are in the area, you should check it out. The event is on February 26th and  admission is 2 canned foods. Check out more on their website or the facebook event

Baby Dylan

Our friend Lisa just became an auntie to her first nephew! We love our nephews and niece so we know how exciting it is when a new one is added to the family. Lisa asked me if I would paint something for the baby when her sister first got pregnant, but they didn't find out the sex, so we had to wait until the baby arrived. Well, little Dylan Henry is here! I had so much fun working on this - I really like working on different kinds of "fonts," so I went for something a little more young and boy-ish instead of flowy and fancy. Welcome to the world, Dylan!

I still have a few other new things to show you, including some work I donated for an event some friend's are setting up. Today I'm doing some things around the house, and hoping to get to a good point on another commissioned piece.

Happy Valentine's Day!

How has your weekend been? We didn't have internet for some odd reason yesterday, so I'm posting my last 2 ATCs today... 

Happy Valentine's Day! Hope you've had a great weekend with your loved ones.

ATC #4

(If you saw our wedding invitation, this one was made out of an extra, and the bottom photo looks like a mini-version of what our invites looked like).
