i spy a tiny surprise....

i was on my bike the other day and spied this fabulous color combination.....
don't you just love this florida-sky-blue and palm-tree-green duo?

and as i looked down the tree, i also saw lots of yummy browns.....

and grays.....and some tiny windows..... and a tiny door?!

so, from now on, not only will i continue to look for wonderful
color combinations, but i'll also try to spy who's using this tiny little door....
(wouldn't it be fantastic if it's the tiny keebler elves,
 baking batches of yummy cookies in their tiny keebler oven?!!) 

i hope your weekend is filled with
 tiny colorful surprises!  :))

inspiration monday

i've discovered that sometimes when i'm looking for inspiration,
it's nice to catch up with an old friend,  like my dover doodle book......

because on the pages inside, you can always create silly stories about new friends....
like tom, and his day at the museum:

(tom's silly story goes like this....)
"once upon a time, tom found something he liked
in the case at the museum."

"and it didn't take long before tom was in a

"actually, it became an all-out choco-emergency."

later that day, tom had discovered the moral of the silly story:
"always be prepared"
(or in choco-terms,  always carry a hammer in your backpack.)

{this silly story was created in my dover doodle book using micron pens,
derwent inktense pencils, and a 4B graphite pencil}

happy places

what is it about finishing a journal that makes you feel like you've just conquered the world?!

with a super feeling of accomplishment (even if it did take me almost a year! :)))!


here's a little cover-to-cover peek inside!
(you can watch it in larger format here!)

i hope you find yourself in lots of happy places this weekend!

inspiration monday

happy new year, bloggy sweeties!!
my first project of 2013 is to finish
a project from last elvie journal!

so, first......all those miscellaneous art supplies i love so much
 fit perfectly on that last blank page..... about some inspiration on that little flap in 
the front of the journal.....

and a quick list of materials on the back flap
(because i'll forget if i don't write it down, guaranteed!).

now all that's left to finish is the back cover, so i'm off to get busy!
but before i go, here's a little resolution i plan to follow this year.....heeheehee  :))
