Today's ENCOURAGEMENT of the day! :D

Life is SUPER DUPER difficult. There are going to be a million things that get in your way, often ones that make you want to quit. But i strongly encourage you not to! Keep following your dreams!! Keep fighting for whats right! And PLEASE keep moving forward! It's so so important that you do. ..That's all i ask of 

Okay...maybe i'll ask that of you tomorrow too. :)

Smiles to you dear friends,

Best. Engagement. Photo. EVER!

I just got back last night from a four day trip to Florida, half to get EVERYTHING DONE and finished for our wedding, and half for my bridal shower [yay!!] 

There aren't many details left to work out for the wedding [thank God!!!] and now that I'm back in NY i can keep working on the work i love to do... which involves doggies who fart love hearts. ;) 

I hope ya'll have a gorgeous start to you week! Until then...

This Nightly Doodle land...

Lately I've been drawings and drawing and drawing! Which for me, means LOTS of time at cafes and silly conversations with boy and friends. :)

I just finished the FIRST page of my book a few days ago, which i LOVE LOVE LOVE!! I'll post the page tomorrow or the next day, and i'd LOVE to know your feedback! 

Lately I've been contemplating making cute handmade watercolor earrings to go with my wedding dress... But I'm not sure if i should wear something a little more detailed instead....

It's crazy to think that my wedding is less than 60 days away!! 

On Wednesday i leave for Florida for my bridal shower... considering i've never been to a bridal shower, i'm not really sure what to expect, but i'm sure it will be fun. :)

I hope you're all having a GLORIOUS start to your week!
smiles to you,

Goodbye MATS1, Hello direction!

I can't believe how quickly 5 weeks have gone past! And that the Make Art That Sells course is over! Crazypants! 

Right now i'm trying to discern what i've learned and how my work has transitioned. This is my last piece i made for class, and honestly i really do like it! I think i would totally buy this if it were real! 

That's a good start right? :)

After stressing this morning that i didn't grow 'enough' in my MATS1 class, i feel SO MUCH better when all my work is laying next to each other like this.

I may not have GROWN that much via my style, but this class has been so challenging and i'm SUPER PROUD of myself to completing all the assignments even when i didn't want to. 

The last image was inspired by this class. I took my painting from week four and added it to the back of my new baby card. I love it. :) I never thought of doing that before!

Hooray for class! :D 
Till next time friends,
-Jenipher :)

Motivational Monday....Tuesday....Wednesday!!

I had The BEST morning MONDAY this week!

I'm trying SO HARD to publish blog posts on time, and the funny part is that i finished Thursdays post on Monday, but not Monday's post! 

Anyways... i spent about 4 hours at my FAVORITE cafe, drinking way TOO MUCH tea, and drawing/brain storming for Lilla's class! It was the perfect ME day!

Today also ties in PERFECTLY with last week's 'Declaration Of Youtopic; Self Care! 

Along with days like this morning i decided i really need to

* color more silly doodles, often!
* Make sure to see friends more.
* Paint my nails once a week. 
  [lets see if THAT actually happens!]

Well now that I'm posting this on Wednesday, i guess you'll get two for the price of one tomorrow! :D 

Happy Fourth of July friends!

PS: That whole wheat apple muffin was pretty yummy!

Happy July!

My almost Mother in Law always texts "Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit" to boy on the 1st day of each month. Apparently it brings on good luck to all you say it to. So, i'd like to say it to you, dear friends.

Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit!
Happy July!
