Rainy Day

Today it has been raining...

and raining..

and raining.

The hubs and I sought shelter in a coffee shop downtown. We had never been to this one before and it was quite a pleasant experience. 

I love times like these. Good coffee and the best company. Not to mention I actually accomplished something (a gift for a lovely friend of mine who is getting married!). 

I love that man. And I love the times we spend together. <3

My Happy Place

 We have a window seat in our teeeny tiiiiny apartment that offers a wonderful amount of extra storage. I hadn't made it into a proper sitting area though due to the fact that most of my crafting/painting supplies was stored underneath and it was quite a hassle getting in and out of it all the time.

That all changed on sunday afternoon when I decided I wanted my window seat to be...well,..a seat. I transferred the things under the bed (christmas decorations, off-season clothes, etc) to the confines of the window seat and put my crafting supplies under the bed for easier access.

I got out some quilts and padded it up then purchased the pillows you see above for under $5 from the thrift store down the street. Yay! I am so in love with the little white pillow it isn't even funny.

This is such a great place to read, draw..and yes, blog. Even if the window is covered with my husband's dying plants. ; ) Don't tell him they're dying though..because they aren't. There is "still some green" he says. Boy does he love those plants. And boy do I love him! : ) So there they shall stay.

I'm hoping to get lots of great new art drawn here in this cozy little space.

Happy Valentines Day!

Love is coming home from work and finding your husband has cooked you a Japanese meal with all of your favorites...complete with sparkling wine and daifuku mochi for dessert!

He. is. amazing.

I am so blessed.

Thank you Jesus.

Here is a recent custom piece I did for a sweet and wonderful friend of mine. It was a surprise from her husband for her birthday. I love it when I get to be a part of such happy thoughtful things!

*please ignore the horrendous scan.

Hope your valentines was a lovely one!

Snow Day! And new art!

Today has been a good day...

The snowpocolypse has come and we are iced/soon to be snowed in. Because of this, me and the hubby finally succumbed to the siren song of Netflix. He is thoroughly enjoying the new endless supply of documentaries that are at his disposal.

However, we are out of coffee. NOT OKAY.

I didn't let that get me down, though..and updated the look of the blog, my etsy, AND listed 3 new items in the shop!!

Just (and I mean *just*) in time for Valentine's Day:

"Let Love In" - available in 5x7 and 8.5x11.

"Date Night" - 5x7.

I'm excited about this month and all that it brings!

Hopefully we won't be stuck at home too terribly long...

Happy Snowpocolypse!
