Painting Roses

Hello friends-- happy end of spring/beginning of summer!
And for my American friends out there in the internet, happy memorial day, and I hope you all are enjoying your three day weekend.

I have had quite a lovely few days which included a dinner picnic at the courthouse with a movie, a trip to the comic book store, I Madonnari (a chalk-painting festival) at the mission, sitting in the sun at the rose garden, and binging Legion at my friend's house ((anyone else into that show?)). I also spent some time working on Magic the Gathering decks ((I'm a nerd ok you should've figured that out by now)) and going through my old American Girl Doll stuff, which was so nostalgic ((saving it all for my future kids)). It's been nice, and I'm all the more excited for summer now.

What color rose are you? I'm yellow :)


Here have some photos because I like to imagine I'm aesthetic 

















2 Year Blogiversary?!?


GUYS

It's been two years since I started this blog.

Where has the time gone?

For my blogiversary post this year I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your comments, subscriptions, and views. I know any blogger can tell you how special it feels to have someone appreciate your art and the work you put into the world. I've been through a lot during the time I've written this blog, and, being the way I am, I tend to leave more personal details out of my writing. But whenever I was tired or sad, I loved to check my inbox and see that someone had left a sweet comment on my sketchbook post, or a thought on my poetry. It makes my day every time. And providing you all with quality content you enjoy is something I love doing and want to continue doing for as long as I can.

So as for right now, you may have noticed my posts are starting to shift and change a bit and morph into something new. Things are becoming more personal, but also more ambiguous. I'm trying to keep core things like art, poetry, writing, and photography around but present them in a new format I like. I'm also trying to incorporate more music, because that's becoming such a big part of my life, and always has been. I'm curious to hear your thoughts-- are these posts working for you? Did you prefer older stuff? Are there posts I used to do that I don't anymore that you miss? Posts you wish I'd do more of? Please let me know below. 

Thank you again for all of your support and love. And thank you, those of you that are my fellow blogger buddies, for putting your creations out there as well on your own blogs. They inspire me. Stay wonderful my friends <3

Campus- Pt. 2

i've been
sitting on concrete steps
and reading my poetry
aloud to the leaves
and praying
for my Father
to wash us both in gold
and trying not to leave you letters in chalk
wherever i go

it's really hard









Sketchbook Work ((New OCs!))

Hey guys!!
So I´ve been doing a lot of sketchbook work lately (as always) and wanted to share some highlights with you. Let me know your favorites as always, and remember how special all you readers are to me <3

I also have a few new OCs (Jade and Oliver and yes Oliver is partly inspired by that mini story you got me) and I'm thinking...comic? Maybe? Still working out their designs a lot though haha. I have to finalize a lot of stuff, it's fun just experimenting with them and playing around. Let me know if you like them :)

pink and blue is nice

hey friends- it's been a bit hasn't it? but i've been keeping up with all of you and there's some superb writing happening out there in the blogosphere, as always, and i love commenting on all your lovely posts.

easter was two days ago and i ate a lot of eggs and went to church and saw my family and held ladybugs. so that was pleasant.

school. is. death.
i'm what the kids call exhausted XD ((is this a meme? I don't even know, forgive me if I'm saying something ridiculous, it happens a lot))

someone told me to count down from five when my world is spinning. it's helping a little.

i went out to eat fancy chinese food and saw a movie and held a boy's hand. i also wore a dress??? and had a lovely time?? we saw your name though which was  A M A Z I N G  was not prepared for the emotions.

sometimes i can't catch my breath and i end up on the bathroom floor at my school during a fourth period. and they asked me if i was ok and i said yes. i guess.

new music is a great thing to have when you're sort of over it all.

my throat hurts but i still have to go to school. so goodbye for now.

and how are all of you?
