Sketchbook Update



Couple of hard months have past, but I have recovered and back in full swing of things. Mostly sewing up a storm and filling up a sketchbook and looking forward to future adventures with my pup BenderB!

Woohoo Summer of Color has begun! Been a pretty busy week for me, but I still managed to have some fun while working on the SOC challenge. I'm going to consider this a warm up cause honestly I was pretty lazy with it.  So I promise myself to step it up more on the next challenge.


These were the colors Kristen challenges us to use: Aqua Blue & Yellow With a Smudge, Splash or Pop of Hot Pink!!!!

Sew Much Fun




Been kind of obsessing over these double sided headbands. Came across a sale on some cute fabric and ran home and sewed the night away making these elastic headbands...and I love them!  
I also made a couple of recycled sweater hats with jersey knit lining. Super soft and warm, I like wearing it on overcast mornings. Going to make some rosettes out of the fabric left over to put on the outside.


Going to include a pair of earrings I made a while back in preparation for a wedding I was going to attend. Made them out of hammered copper and wired wrapped a pearl coin in them middle. 



Got lots of other projects in the works so make sure to follow me or check back later to see what I have in the works! till later! xox

Hello Summer!

Most recent sketch from my sketchbook that I colored in photoshop with a limited pallet.


WOOHOO SUMMER IS HERE FINALLY!!! Been a while since I have had a chance to sit down and update my poor art blog. Can't believe it's June already. Lets see so far I had the opportunity to participate in the Bay to Breakers with my family, planted some veggies and work on some mini projects which are coming up soon here that I look forward to sharing with you. But other then that I have been making time for the more creative things in my life that make me happy, be it drawing in my sketch book or painting river rocks.  I have also decided to join a challenge that my friend Jenna is in over at The Summer of Color 2014. Should be fun and help motivate me to keep my blog up and active with new stuff to share! So yippee! :)


I am also going to be updating the look of my blog here shortly so be sure to come back and check it out, Or not cause I may just make a giant mess of it instead. lol....I'll leave you with a song I have had a mini dace party to in my room. enjoy :)

Spring Time

Spacing out on a Sunday afternoon, making plans for the Spring time.
So true!
Somethings that I have been enjoying lately are early morning walks with Bender and swimming everyday for a whole month now.  Didn't realize how much I missed the pool and being outside in the sunshine. Can't wait for summer to officially start! Working out can still be a pain but I always feel amazing afterwards.

Let's Get It Wet, Shall We?

I love these guys!!! 
  Coming back to my sketchbook after a long hiatus is like remembering that I like to breath air, cause you know I gotta breath to keep living. I have to draw and just let my mind fill a page of random things to be happy... Then I give myself shit for not drawing for such a long period of time and try to just let loose and make a mess.


Cat in a Jar
Merwoman Fish Head?


Night Guys!!! Hope you have a great Tuesday!! -Kim
