watercolor flowers

I’ve come to the conclusion that the only thing I can watercolor paint is flowers. I’m ok with that. I needed to write some overdue thank you notes, so I painted a rainbow patch of flowers for the fronts of the cards. Hopefully the cheery flowers make up for the lateness.

pretty pretty princesses

My sister needed a present to give to a little girl, and these are what she wanted to make. Sometimes, people say that they want to make something, and then somehow, I end up doing a lot of it. And you might not be able to tell from the picture, but these things are tiny, wee, little dolls.

I may have complained the entire way through making these, but really inside, I was not mad at all. Because look at their little faces, and their hair. You can’t be angry at that.

There are tutorials all over the internet of how to make these, in case you need some of your own.

house painters

We spent a weekend painting the inside of our new house. The previous owner had crazy color walls. Like one wall in the living room was teal. The master bedroom was two shades of purple. They probably loved them, so naturally, it was the first thing we changed. 

Painting is generally exhausting. All the arm movement just makes you feel sleepy. The first thing we did after we moved the furniture in was take a nap.
