Winter Adventures and the first snow

Today we had our first real snow. Elaina Linde and I took full advantage of it and went out adventuring. It was so beautiful. I think winter can be so pretty. We got back tired and happy and made some hot cocoa. YUM. Tonight we are making some more sugar cookies.

A Wonderful, Happy, and Delicious Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving break was amazing. I spent it with Walky and Emi and it was just about perfect. In fact it was everything a Thanksgiving break should be, fun, delicious, relaxing, giggly, and food filled. I'd like to rewind and do it all over again....

Something Sunny Prints

More print ideas/work
I drew these by hand, uploaded them into illustrator, and digitally colored and manipulated the images :)

Greeting Cards

I decided to try my hand at making greeting, thank you cards, and prints through Something Sunny. I thought it could be a low cost alternative to a frame but still show off that bright carefree beach feel that I've worked so hard to create. Here is the beginning of my work :)

So you may be thinking...WOW TWO POSTS IN ONE DAY?! Isn't this getting excessive?
But, you see I have a Spanish paper I should be writing....ahhhhhh suddenly it all makes sense.

Halloween this year was awesome. I dressed in full ninja garb and spent most of the night running around outside, fighting/hitting people with my sword, hiding behind trees, and throwing poorly aimed ninja stars. Which basically equals best night ever.

Check out my awesome friends and their equally awesome costumes:

1000 Steps

We hiked 1,000 steps yesterday. It's an old mining trail that was built in the 1930s and it winds, 1000 stone steps high, up the mountain side. As per usual it was a beautiful day and the view and company was fantastic.

Last week I presented my progress and story with Something Sunny at the business incubator at the board of trustee's luncheon. I loved the energy and enthusiasm I was greeted with. It inspired me to head back to the studio and try some new designs and I'm thinking seriously about starting a line of stationary, greeting cards, or notebooks.

I also stopped by a local art shop that caught my eye the other day and ended up meeting a woman running a local craft fair in November that I'm going to try and get a booth at.

Here are two designs I'm playing around with currently:

I knew this would be a good week!
I got my hair cut today, I’m playing hearts tonight, I’ve got a soccer game tomorrow and most importantly MY NEW NIKON CAMERA CAME IN TODAY! The fedex man said, “The only time I see people get this excited is when I have flowers.” OH YEAH!
