Sheesh, I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I posted anything. Well, that’s not entirely true, I kinda lost my mojo on what to write about. You see writing isn’t my strong point, which is kind of strange since I am an avid reader. However, I do love to share pretty visuals I see. This may take some time to get rolling while I figure out what to share/not share and how to use WP again.
What have I been doing for the past year? Well, I’ve been doing a ton of drawing/doodling and slowly building a portfolio of paper products. My goal is to be selling stationery, art prints and fabric designs soon. Actually, I need to create a deadline to make this happen. I’ve been hanging out on the corner of fear and scared of failure for way too long. It’s time to choose a different road and see where it goes. Here are a few of the things I’ve created. I hope you enjoy!

I think I love you. Man, oh man, is this place GOR-GEOUS!!! I forgot how much I loved mountains ’til my trip out west. All I’ve ever heard about Portland is it rains non-stop. Well, I was lucky as this was not the case. I do need to apologize ahead of time as I took 4 bazillion pictures and this may be broken in to two separate posts. This trip I only scratched the surface of discovery, so I’ll need to go back soon. Thanks Julia for letting me visit:-)

Waterfalls to come…probably too many pix of them:-)

“And so with the sunshine and great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
Hmmm, it’s been awhile and not sure where the time has gone. I’m pretty sure blogging has been my creative outlet the past few years and now drawing/doodling has taken over my life. Guess what that means, no blogging. The full-time gig really gets in the way of all my creative playtime. Some day I hope to change this…
Well, very good news, Spring has sprung in Texas. You know what that means…
Bluebonnets & Bronco
Errbody’s out taking photos in the bluebonnets…and some look like they’re poopin’ in bluebonnets. And this is how we do Spring in Texas, y’all!
My favorite part of this time of year…temps are PERFECT and the flowers are GORGEOUS!!!
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets
“Maybe some women aren’t meant to be tamed. Maybe they just need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them.”~ Carrie Bradshaw

“A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water logged stick will do just fine. A dog doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he’ll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?”
~John Grogan, Marley & Me
Looking at pretty things to get me through the work week…living for the weekend. Enjoy!

“However good or bad you feel about your relationship, the person you are with at this moment is the “right” person, because he or she is the mirror of who you are inside.”
