I'm on Instagram!

I love Instagram! Lately I've been getting into a more consistent posting schedule and I'm really getting a kick out of it! I love that I can share things that often don't work too well as a blog post. I use Instagram mostly for:

Illustrations and sketches 
Ink drawing of a mermaid swimming in circles

Close up of yesterday's mermaid sketch!

Very happy and excited bee drawing

A slightly over excited bee for a lunchbox tomorrow! 

Brightly colored mandala on black background

So my daughter just got a new box of @crayola crayons... 

She's bouncing around playing and I'm the one having fun drawing!

Pencil drawing sketch of sleeping basset hound

I had a little mommy quiet time this afternoon while my daughter

played! These two appeared on my paper to keep me company!

Working on a new paper illustration!

White horse head made out of felt with white yarn for a mane

Working on something new for the blog!

Craft projects
Stuffed felt letters in a variety of colors spelling out I'm Done on a red background

I'm done!!!! I can't believe I finally finished this stuffed alphabet 

for my daughter! I think I've been working on it for almost 2 years. 

Today I decided to get X, Y and Z done. Yay!

Turkey made out of pine cone, twigs and colorful fall leaves

We collected a bagful of fall goodness on our walk this morning.

Then we got to playing around with them and this wacky turkey appeared!

Acorn painted like a candy skull (Dia de los Muertos)

Still playing around with our nature haul from this morning!

Painting Candy Skull acorns!

He's such a good sport! Love him to bits!! (National Dog Day)

Two dried four leaf clovers resting on wax paper

I found a four leaf clover yesterday!!! I'm pressing it along with the

one I found in 2013 (my first ever!). I'm thinking about putting them

in a pendant once my new one dries out.

Caterpillar chrysalides hanging from the top of a clear cup with a drawing of a hungry caterpillar and a flower in the background

Our caterpillars have hardened into chrysalides! I miss the

little munchers already...
