The Projects these Days...

 I've discovered the wonder of WonderUnder. I used it on quilting cotton to create a barrier for the glue. I think the patterned fabric adds a punch of fun and color. I had forgotten how much I love to bind. Its a great hobby with my lil Vienna because I can pick it up or put it down without much fuss.

This is some bunting for Vienna's room. We are renting, so adding color through painting isn't an option. I just finished sewing them, so the next photo will be of them hanging up.
 The Buffalo King needs a few tweaks, but it's on its way. It only took six months to get this far. haha
 And this one. She keeps me pretty busy. But I made her too, so I think she counts.

Sooooooo behind...

I may or may not have bitten off more than I can chew. I'm up to third journal for the year. The second journal is mostly descriptions and sketches with a few finished and the third is just notes. gah..... I have so many things to capture I'm drowning in memories to be recorded. I'll be a bit, catching up for a little while. I hope to have posts again the beginning of Sept.

thank all!~

Okay I went on vacation too! 
Mom made Crème brûlée...

Whaaat???? A Current Post???

Are you shocked and awed? I know. Me too. I've actually filled two of these sketchbooks with our daily doings. I'm still inking book 2. This is from book 3. I'm trying to keep up with the latest as I go back and ink the penciled in entries of June and July..... Oh crap. I just had the realization. I marked this day as July 3rd. It's actually today: August 3. Shoot. Ah well. I had fun drawing it. My friend Amanda was a good sport and posed for reference for me to draw this well. I have a hard time remembering what people wear when I get home. And she is so stylish! 

Also. Please notice the purple cauliflower I bought at the market. I can't wait to eat it!

A new Tribe

I've joined a baby-wearing group of ladies, who get together. I highly recommend baby-wearing. You can read about the benefits and convenience by just googling it. I was sold after reading about the "fourth trimester" which goes over the transition of the baby from womb to world and how to make it smoother.

Vienna FINALLY went down for a nap long enough for me to snap some photos. I'm still catching up on inking for the month of June. Too many interesting things are happening! I'm having a hard time keeping up. I'm singing as I type this to keep her happy. Thus any typos. Since I'm backlogged I think I'll able to post twice a week or so.

More Mom Life

While we make dinner, Vienna sits in a little swing. Well, her little butt gurgled and when I walked over to peek at her diaper! She had leaked into the little seat! So with a burp cloth and and extra set of hands, Vienna was whisked to the changing table. (a burp cloth is much easier to clean than drops of poop on the carpet) 

Funny. I now know why my bjorn isn't such a great carrier. I'm so glad I have my ergo and ring sling. 

Mike's work has a pool table with their logo on the felt in the office. On Friday's, they guys take the afternoon to blow off steam and play a little. I'm kinda glad Mike forgot his lunch so I could come visit. 

I am nearly caught up with May... just as I approach June. Hahaha. Isn't that just the way? I'm so amazed I've been able to keep up with it. It's mostly because of Mike. He bathes Miss Vienna each night so I can have some down time. 

About Me

My Photo
I am an illustrator, bookbinder, painter, doodler, list-maker, and wife. I love food. I am what can be categorized as a dabbler. I love trying new things, but I always come back around to art and illustration. I just can't help it.
