Some Xmas photo attempts

Two of my faves- out of about a billion that I took today...

Such sweet little faces!

Hmmm, there might be too much vampire talk going on around this house...

Spider Love

These strange spider webs show up on our grass some mornings but this one was pretty cool. She must be in love. If you look closely you can see the little spider artist sitting in the middle of the heart.

Catching up

Things have been busy around here but I managed to squeeze in a few things.

Planter VS Planter

I spent most of my time in Cameron Village painting this planter outside the Noodles & Co after eating lunch there. This painting is my favorite of the day.

Long Distance Sketch Crawl

Went on a long distance sketch crawl with my friend Mitzi who lives in New Orleans. We chatted on the phone, took pix and sketched. It was VERY cool and we will definitely be doing it again.

Bambi, Mama and Thumper

I was really annoyed last night when I opened a brand new 5lb bag of carrots only to find half of them slimy. I decided to toss them in the yard and sure enough we had visitors this morning. Had to take these through the window, screen and my son's reflection, so please excuse the poor quality.

My Garden Hates Me

I thought I wasn't watering enough so I watered more, then it seemed I was watering too much. Nothing works and everything looks really sad except 1 pumpkin vine. I think pumpkins like it dry so does that mean I'm not watering enough? Who the heck knows? Here is one of the saddest tomato plants I've ever seen. I had to capture it before it dies completely. I'm afraid if I pick the tomato it's growing I'll take away it's only reason to live.

Fairy Sketches

Since Jackson has a new journal, Piper wants one too. She wants a fairy on the cover of hers so I'm trying to come up with one of my own so I don't just copy Tinkerbell. The one on the bottom right reminds me of my niece, Erin.

Crazy Blue Hair

And lots of it. There are so many things wrong with this one but I'm just trying to fill up the last few pages of a sketchbook.

Journal Covers

Jackson needs a new journal and I can't seem to find one I really like so I decided to make my own this time. So far these are the covers. When it's open flat you'll be able to see the whole basketball. I haven't figured out what type of paper to use inside but I'll be able to switch around since I'll use binder rings to hold it all together.

Wish I had a macro lens...

All sorts of critters came out to play in our yard today. Here are a few I captured on film. I'm pretty sure that dragonfly was posing for me after a while. There's one shot where I swear he's smiling. I posted more pix on flickr.

Back to the sketchbook...

I hit a wall with the planner. I'm still doodling in it sort of but I wasn't doing much else so I'm taking a break. It's nice to get back to a sketchbook again.
Happy birthday Michelle!

It's June!

I can't believe how fast the months are going by. Wow.
I'm not sure what kind of flower this is but I saw a photo of it in a magazine the other day and thought it was cool.

Back to the compact size. It's much easier to carry around.
