Life...or something like it...

  Oh man... this week has been a crazy whirlwind of wedding 'crap'. For the pasts few days, Boy and I have been making invites like a CRAZY person!

I've also been working as best as i can on Lilla Roger's Make Art That Sells class that I'm taking. [Which is how i was inspired to do the little house pattern above...] I can't wait to order some fabric of it from Spoon Flower!

This is another pattern i made for the class. I ended up changing it around some for the class assignment, but i still think it came out pretty cute.

Are you doing any fun projects this week? I'd love to hear about them! :)

Happy Tuesday friends!

Let me TELL YOU about my.... BOOK!

What were you like when you were a teenager

Were you happy
An old soul?

Maybe you felt like me, and felt sad and alone most of the time...

 My goal is to write a super honest, encouraging, vibrant book with the intent to help teens feel less alone in this world. BUT a book that women [and men?!] in their 20's and beyond can enjoy as well!

 Right now I'm thinking format would be  quick sad or funny, truthful stories about my life and lots of my new "lovely girl" drawings. Think: getting made fun of for being a virgin then 10 years later being told I am strong and impressive for still "waiting". For waiting for the right person. Or not realizing I literally wasn't dumb until 2010. I want to share how to take hurts and turn them into joys.

Ultimately, my goal to make THE BOOK i WISH i had when i was younger. Something easy to read and relate to, something that's visually stimulating! Something RAW and HONEST and not all sunshine and butterflies.

I hope you'll continue to follow this journey with me. I'd love to hear YOUR stories!

  • What were YOUR teen years like?! 
  • What you want to MAKE SURE your children know?
  • What do you WISH someone KNOCKED INTO YOUR HEAD!?! 

Add a comment or Email me if you'd like to share! (Jenipherlyn@gmail.com) I'd love to hear from you!

Smiles to you DEAR DEAR Friends!

Smiles to you friends,

Pyrex + Mushrooms = HAPPY doodles!

These are some of the doodles i've been working on the last two days for #MakeArtThatSells; the class I'm taking. :D

I've never really drawn mushrooms much nor any pyrex containers before, so this has been pretty fun. I think I'm going to try watercoloring some of them next! 

Have you worked on any fun projects today?
