The book is HERE!!!!!

HELLO...!


Just ONE YEAR ago, i was chatting with friends telling them how i wanted to write and illustrate a book... And now, my {Doodle Dream} books have arrived, IN THE FLESH! It's CRAZY!

I'm in the process of mailing out OODLES of them! Little by little... Everyone who 'ordered' a copy from Kickstarter will get theirs in the next few weeks! [yay!]

AND.... ta daaaa!! You can now purchase some of my cards, AND my books at an amazing store in Los Angeles called Leanna Lin's Wonderland. [YAY!!!!] 



Isn't it ADORABLE?!? 

If you know of any shops you think my book would fit well in, please let me know!

And, if you'd like a copy of the book, you can order one right HERE! :)


Thanks & Cheers friends!!!

10 artists YOU'RE missing OUT on!!!


I've had the PRIVILEGE to get to know some incredible talented women! Whether it was in a class, workshop, art show, or on Instagram, i can SAFELY say, these 10 women are INCREDIBLE. And on top of talent, they are SUCH NICE people!!! [which is an A in my book!]

I seriously recommend checking EACH of these ladies out, and watching them continue to GROW!! It's actually really fascinating how fast they are chuggin' along!! PLUS, i happen to know almost every women on this list has some REALLY cool things happening right now! 

Enjoy being trapped on the internets a while!

Doodles + Self Care = HAPPY CLASS!

HELLO...!


Happy Saturday friends!!
I hope it's been restful so far!!
I wanted to tell you about a class i'll be teaching a workshop in!
The class is called BE.




{ What The Class Includes } 
(Taken from Brandy's website)
seven week class, starting the Monday before Ash Wednesday and continuing until Easter Sunday with a specific theme every week.

live weekly call co-led by myself and the teacher of the week. My husband is also going to serenade us with a few songs at the beginning of each call!

recipe every week that I have stumbled upon that will help us explore healing and experiencing God through food. I’ll add modifications to make room for allergies and special diets.

weekly reflection from the Bible or another book and a spiritual practice that will complement that week’s theme and workshop.

A day each week to practice the art of letting go. A day to fast from shame or judgment or the lies we tell ourselves.

A day each week of radical Sabbath. We’ll have an official Sabbath day as a class, where the page will grow silent, but we can each decide what day or hours we choose rest in our own lives.

An invitation to join our private Facebook group where can explore this extreme restfulness together.

love letter straight to your inbox at the beginning of every week that will contain all of the activities and resources that week for easy reference.


Below is what my week looks like! hooray! 
Week Five {03/31—04/06} :: Play
Questions :: When was the last time you played? When was the last time you created art just for you? Can you let yourself get swept up in the flow of fun? Where can you go this week to laugh so hard your cheeks hurt?
Recipe :: Chocolate Chip Cookies
Spiritual Practice :: Doodling
What we’ll let go :: Anxiety
Workshop :: Nightly Doodles with Jenipher Lyn

We'd love if you wanted to join us! You can click HERE to read more about it, or you can respond to this e-mail if you have any questions! I hope the rest of your weekend goes SPLENDIDLY!!

How i LOVE Valentine's Day...

But NOT in the way you might think!! 


For the past two years, Boy and i have spent Valentine's Day going to an event that honors an INCREDIBLE women! This year Boy and I had tickets to see Jonatha Brooke's play, "My Mother Has Four Noses". 

You know when you see someone and immediately wish you knew them in real life? I felt that connection with Jonatha when i saw her on Jen Lee's trailer for her film, "Indie Kindred".



The show was unexpected, emotional, and heart felt. All Jonatha had to do was open her mouth to sing her very first song, and i was already crying. Her voice is THAT lovely. 

After the show i just stood there, tears running down my face as i waited patiently to see if Jonatha was going to come out. Not even realizing i was surrounded by friends of hers, the tears streamed faster when she appeared at the end of the hallway. And continued to fall as i watched her hug and greet everyone.

And then it was my turn. I got to briefly chat, and hug her myself. And she was JUST as wonderful in person as she seemed on stage.



Last year the boy and i had the PLEASURE of going to an event Grand Central was throwing. A valentines day event featuring Sophie Blackall!! I'm sure you've seen her work before, but if not, you'll surely swoon. She's seriously one of the most talented watercolorists and illustrators i know. The event was lovely, and i had a few moments to chat with her when she signed her book, Missed Connections. I really hope to take a watercolor class she teaches one day!! That would be AMAZING.

I feel so grateful we have such wonderful events and people in New York! It's such a blessing! I'm excited to see what NEXT YEAR brings! yay! :)
