While we watched Good Will Hunting (which never gets old), I worked on some sketches and added some color at the end.

I usually don’t wear jewelry regularly, but when I do, I like to reach for these. Plus a few are gifts so it makes them extra special. ¬†from Anthropologie, Odette, and Scout-Holiday.

I think we had 2 full moons in a row, or something else be up with my kiddos, because the last few days of last week were one of those hair pulling I can’t wait to go home kid of days. But something I’m slowly learning this year is to look at those moments, and they are small, as isolate incidents and really be grateful for the rest because this year has been a smooth transition with great classes/students.

By Friday, I definitely needed a distraction/pick me up. While waiting to pick up Beej, I stopped into Urban Outfitters and picked up two of these peter pan collar dresses from Cooperative. One in black and the other in a dark teal. I’m pretty happy with how versatile (shirt, dress, rolled up or down) and comfortable they are. Plus, I rarely have much luck finding clothes I really like in UO that can be part of my everyday wardrobe.

    thank you! I actually didn’t pick up watercolor painting until much later. For me, their much more convenient to tote around and I can work faster than oils. Def. give them a try :)
