What I Wore Today Drawings

I've been a big fan of Wardrobe Remix ever since it started but never participated because, well, I'm not that much of a fashionista. I wear t-shirts and jeans most of the time and I'm pretty sure that I (still) dress like a teenager so that's not very interesting to photograph. But now my new favorite Flickr group is What I Wore Today (drawings only). Below are the first two drawings I added to the group:

Headed to Atlanta to see a friend's band play.

And the aftermath. It was a very, very late night and I had to get up super early. Why did I say I'd go to Atlanta when I knew I had an early morning? Well, I love my friends, I really do.

I hope to participate more. Maybe it'll inspire me to up my fashion game (I did order three new dresses today!). And, hey, more drawing never hurts, right?

Things I Love Thursday

Baby Keira

This photo of my cousin's 1 year old. It's the only decent shot I got while I was up north over the summer. It was juried into a photography show at Arts Clayton. I'm excited!

And in no particular order: Sharpie Pens (especially blue!), bandanas on dogs, good mail days, listening to The Essential Micheal Jackson, the always amazing Ryan Adams, the opening to the MTV VMA's (the only part I watched), cute ukulele videos, the term, "Social Media Manager", the end of the quarter and two weeks away from school, roadtrip plans (going to Mississippi soon to see my cousin Johnnybaby), opportunities and taking chances, going to bed early, reading a new book, sleepy rainy days, new watercolor paintbrushes, friends moving in nearby, having a day to get caught up on life. & just L-I-V-I-N.

Goggie Paintings!

I was looking through a tattoo magazine when I spotted an old school tattoo design of a weenie dog. I thought it would be a great idea to draw up a tattoo in the same style but have it look like my new weenie, Dexter. I spent a good amount of time trying to get the feet to look right and even studied Dexter's sleepy paws while sketching.

Above is the final product. Dexter came down with the sickness last week and spent two days sleeping it off. I sat near his crate and painted all afternoon. I had to keep an eye on him and make sure he was going to be okay.

This week he's back to normal and making a mess out of everything. My heart is relieved.

My BFF Amber mentioned that I should do a painting for her little Lucy and I quickly whipped up this gem. Lucy is a mini-weenie so I made her image smaller and more compact. It's adorable, if I do say so myself. :)

Both with watercolors on 300 1b. watercolor paper.

Picnic at the Bluff


I've been enjoying my weekends of nothing to do. When I say, "nothing to do" I really mean nothing I have to do for any one else except for my family. This past Saturday found ourselves a bit bored so I suggested that we go on a picnic at the nearby state park. The husband was a bit hesitant. The last time he'd been there, it was a redneck drinking spot. I don't know how long ago that was but I knew it was clean and pretty and I wanted to go, by golly, so we went.

We had a very nice picnic, explored the area, skipped rocks, and dipped our toes in the river. It was hotter than we expected so we tired out quickly. But I'm sure we'll make our way back soon. Dexter loved sniffing everything in sight and actually got better at walking with us on a leash! Mazzy threw every single rock she could find into the river. It's the simple things that keeps us entertained!

I can't believe this beautiful spot is ten miles from my house. I love it so.
