Hi there! Its seems my Friday Gratitude post has quickly become my ONLY post each week. I actually love blogging more frequently and have SO many things I’d like to share with you! But I’ve sprouted a pencil and paintbrush from my right hand (like Edward Scissorhands!) and I’ve been painting and drawing every single day, and LOVING every single minute of it!
There are so many things I’m grateful for that come to mind this week-martinis with my hubby, this for my sore neck, my etsy shop being busy busy, and my upcoming trip to NYC for the Surtex show, to name just a few. But what I want to share with you today specifically is my girlies. I’ve talked to you about them before. But they are truly amazing. And what’s so interesting to me is that I am enjoying them at the ages they are right now, even more than I did when they were little. Seeing their personalities blossom, getting to know each of them in their own uniqueness and wonderfulness is really exciting. They make me laugh-both of them! They are hilarious. Which leads me to my drawings. Their teenager sayings have fueled a whole series of art! I keep writing down what funny things they say-I have notes all over the house on little bits of paper, on the white board, and in my sketchbook. Here is Eliza- it says “Don’t make me snap my fingers in a Z form-a-tion”
They way she says it is so funny too-with her hip and her attitude. Plus she can’t snap, so she makes a clicking sound with her mouth while she tries to snap. Its just so stinking cute.
Then I have Bella who says “sighs forlornly” and “I’m not even kidding”. I drew her with her new short & chic do.
These girls inspire me!
Here is a post card I made for my trip to NYC. Bella wants an anime wig-she showed me all the different styles and colors…and when she was scrolling through all the variations this image popped into my head. I’ll share more of my teenager collection with you soon! I think they would make great cards. Its so hard to buy a card for a teenager isn’t it? There really isn’t that much available. Until now!
What do you think? Do you have a teenager that says funny stuff? Do tell! Maybe I’ll put it in an illustration!!
Thanks for stopping by darlin’s-I really do appreciate your being here. xo-Heather
