I saw this quote the other day on A mighty girl and loved it. So, I tried out some hand lettering. I’m not the greatest at it, that’s for sure, but it was a fun process.
I haven’t been creating much art lately, just haven’t found the time, which I need to do. I HAVE been spending a lot of time sitting next to my daughter watching her color and draw and paint though, which is so amazing/inspiring/exciting.
The more involved she gets the more I’m able to draw a little too, without her wanting on my lap or to help her with something every 5 seconds. :)
I like planning out my week and to-do’s on Sunday evening, if I don’t I end up totally sidetracked when the time comes to actually work. This template is super simple, five blank days to fill in as you like.

I used tape so I could use the same sheet every week. A lot of things stay the same like nap time and when my mom watches Pepper. Now I can quickly switch out what I want to work on and when!
My baby girl is incredible, it’s impossible to list all of her achievements over the past year – some big ones… crawling, walking, talking, hugging, kissing. Not to mention a million little/big things like growing the muscles to hold her head up and figuring out how to open her little clenched fists. AMAZING ///
Happy birthday big girl, I love you I love you I love you I love you!!!

A whole year has passed since our little Pepper joined us, holy toledo! It’s pretty crazy to see all her monthly P photos together – way to grow up Peps! You are AMAZING.
I don’t usually post about hair BUT… last week I woke up feeling a little crazy. I also just happened to have a hair appointment scheduled for that afternoon. I’m always thinking of doing something different but usually end up with the same. I saw this photo on Pinterest and fell in love! (source) I’ve wanted orange hair since the first time I saw Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. And The Fifth Element, and Run Lola Run…
So, I did it! Well, my hairdresser Erika at Grooming Humans did it. She even made me a special mix – red, yellow and clear which gives it the coral-y tint. A darker rust color is underneath in the back for a little depth. If you’re close to Tempe, AZ and need a haircut/color you should definitely give her a call. So, yeah. I love it and that’s all I have to say!
The Craftiest WP Theme + Workshop! I’ve been wanting to do a WordPress theme workshop for crafters and artists forEVER and it’s finally coming together. Release date is the end of the
summer year, sign up for updates to be the first to know when more details are available. :)
Your WordPress theme is BORING but you can’t afford to hire a fancy web developer right now. You’ve tried a million themes and they all leave you with the same plain-jane site in different colors. The Craftiest WP Theme + Workshop is different. This theme is a freshly gesso’d canvas ready for you to pour your heart and soul onto! The Craftiest WP Theme + Workshop comes with the tools, tutorials and support you’ll need to completely make it your own.
Imagine creating a blog that screams your style from header to footer, a website that you’re proud to say you made yourself!
The Craftiest WP Theme + Workshop is for you if:
* You’re the crafty type that loves DIY.
* You can create your own artwork, on paper or digitally.
* You want a website that is an extension of your work and individual style.
* You want a unique blog that doesn’t look like a template.
* You’re tired of color pickers and limited options.
* You have a self-hosted WordPress site, or are ready to get one.
* You’re not afraid of some simple code, even if you’ve never tried it before.
Wait, we have to code stuff?! Yes. Personalizing this WordPress theme does require a bit of simple CSS. Don’t worry if you don’t know what that is yet, I’ll show you with easy step-by-step instructions. Be brave! Think of it as a tool, akin to a paintbrush or sewing machine. The WordPress theme is your canvas or bolt of fabric – you get the picture!
