Tomorrow afternoon I'm off on an adventure on my own. I'm flying up north to visit family and see some real snow! Happy thanksgiving everyone!

Moleskine Update!


Once we got past the halfway point of Mazzy's hospital stay, things got a little boring so I spent some time drawing in my sketchbook with kids' markers.

I Love You All! Y'all!

Mazzy Art

On November 5th, Mazzy was admitted to the hospital. We thought it would be an easy overnight stay but things went downhill quickly and the next day she had emergency surgery to remove her appendix. We stayed at the hospital for eight exhausting days. Above is a drawing Mazzy made on her sixth day at the hospital. She was feeling much better by then and we were all happy to see her looking so well.

We've been home since Thursday and playing catch-up on sleep and life in general.

Day Six: NaBloPoMo

Fact #6: I really do have the best family and friends around.

Going through a tough time now, blogging will be teeny-tiny.

Day Five: NaBloPoMo

Fact #5: The Pilot Precise V5 RT is my favorite pen!

Today's blog is short and sweet. The kiddo's been sick all night, poor thing.

Day Four: NaBloPoMo

I sat down at my dining room table, ready to get some work done and figured I should document my obsession. I'm completely bonkers about Moleskine notebooks. Just bonkers. Moleskines and tea, please.
  1. Hard Covered Ruled Notebook - My journal.
  2. Hard Covered Plain Notebook - My sketchbook & list notebook. Almost finished. Will get new one soon.
  3. Ruled Cahier - Just came in the mail yesterday. I will fill it with writing ideas and haiku.
  4. Pocket Squared Cahier - My ART to-do list. Submission deadlines and ideas.
  5. Red Pocket Planner + Notebook 2008 - It goes everywhere with me. I can't wait to order a 2009 planner. I'll get a bigger one this time.
I also have a Watercolor Reporter Notebook. It's sitting downstairs in my studio.

Day Three: NaBloPoMo

Fawne Fact #3: I'm not big on "fancy" jewelery. I'm extremely low-maintenance and I don't ever want a lot of money spent on me.
Above are two of my most cherished rings. The smaller ring is made of sterling silver and hand stamped with a saying our daughter used to say all the time. I call it my "marriage" ring. Daniel and I got eloped (what a funny word!) in 2004 and didn't have a traditional wedding or any rings.
I got the ring four years later, mostly because I was tired of always explaining why I don't care for traditional wedding bands, why I don't wear one, and how I could be married without a ring. I knew I wanted something hand-made and unique so I did a search on Etsy and came across The ring arrived in no time and I fell in love instantly.
The other ring was also custom made for me. I was shopping in Little Five Points in Atlanta and saw man on the street was making rings out of copper wire. I stopped and chatted for a moment and he quickly created this ring for me. He was fascinating and told me that whenever I wanted to see him again then all I had to do was say, "Copper John? Where are you?" This was 9 years ago and every time I go to Little Five I look for him. Sadly, I haven't seen him since.

Day Two: NaBloPoMo

Daniel and Maz saw a little lizard in our basement a few days ago. They were unable to catch it and we figured it'd find its own way out of the house. This afternoon while I was sweeping the floor I spotted him. I stood still and searched for something to catch him with. I decided on the toy nets that came with Mazzy's Elefun game and slowly eased my way towards the critter. I easily caught him and ran upstairs to show Daniel. Then I told him to grab the camera so I can blog about this later.

There you go: I'm a blog-dork critter-catcher. I love animals and I'd never pass up a chance to hold one. Last week we visited the Atlanta Zoo and I just ooooh-ed and ahhh-ed all over the place. Petting zoos and touch tanks are my favorite!

Day One: NaBloPoMo

I'm an obsessive list-maker. I have to make sure everything's in order and everything can be checked off the list. This morning I bought plane tickets to visit my family in Michigan and the first thing I do is make a to-pack list. I'm extremely stoked about this trip already! 25 days to go!

Ahhhh, it's that time again! Time for National Blog Posting Month! I tried it last year but missed a day or two. I'm going to try again and maybe have a little bit of a theme: one post a day on a Fawne Fact. Yes. So by the end of the month, you'll know so much more about me. Today you learned that I'm crazy about list-making.
