catching up and crafting.

Merry Christmas!!
I absolutely love the Christmas season. I don't mind extending it just a little before Thanksgiving. But I know some people are very opposed to that, and so do my Christmas lights. So, just before thanksgiving break, they were so eager, just popped up in the living room asking if they could stay!

They're still hanging out in the living room, but we did put up our little dorm tree! :)

I haven't blogged in a while but a lot has happened! One thing I've really enjoyed doing this semester is putting on a good movie, sitting in the living room and painting! So, in the past few months, these are the projects I've worked on while doing just that... :)

This painting is for my friend, a writer who is excellent with words! I read this quote while studying for Great Speeches, and thought she would like it: "Kenneth Burke considered clusters of words as dancers of attitudes~choreographed into the message"

This little piece was also inspired by a quote. :) Though it's super simple, it's one of my favorites! When I was a little girl, I absolutely loved Winnie the Pooh. That love was rekindled when I watched the movie that came out this summer, it was so similar to the original!

This piece was inpsired by my friend, Hannah. She's getting married next summer and I thought it was so cool that she chose yellow and grey for her wedding colors. I saw the pattern on Pinterest and did it with the people on bikes as her and her wonderful fiance, Jake.

This piece was for my friend Melissa, who is also getting married next summer to the man she has been dating for seven years! They are an incredible couple! They are also Arkansas fans so I made this little piece for their future home :)

I actually did this at the beginning of the year with black and white paint, I love the Mickey and Minnie leaning in to kiss.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope you're having a very Merry Christmas... it's the best time of the year, you know!
