Drawing Challenge day 21

21 Feb

I’ve been having some rough days and I really just realized I haven’t even made any of these posts even though I’m drawing them!

Today is a day I chose. Draw and American Idol!

And not in a Ryan Seacrest way!

So I drew one of my favorite ladies…. who is so American and is everything America is about!

Dolly Parton.

She is a self made celebrity and is so talented and warm and lovely. Also she has the best… wigs in the entire world!

The Big 10,000

2 Apr

Okay I was super prepared to make another post. I was in it, I was going the distance.

And then I didn’t hit post. Because it just really wasn’t happening in my gut. I felt like there was something better I could share.

And then when I was driving home I realized what it was. Last week in my silly adventures I ended up on this Date Duration Calculator… and I found out today is my 10,000th day!

Because you know I’m a bit of a sappy girl I bring you this doodle:

I’m so happy I got to share some of my 10,000 days with you. Also thanks for making my days super amazing.

And in my super 10,000 day knowledge I have decided I totally am going to live my next 1,000 days like Dolly Parton. Who I have always adored… but the more I learn about her the more I see her as a force of absolute goodness in this world. And really don’t we need more of that? I want to help with that!

Also thanks to Jonathon who understood my joy of 10,000 days. Just to let you know I ate Ice Cream and wore a very sparkly necklace to celebrate it… and did I mention there was a new Mindy Project? Well there was, and my whole day was just wonderful :)

One more thing. Use the calculator and calculate some of your special days. I’d like to see some of your numerical triumphs!

The Rain

5 Mar

Sometimes I find it so hard to be stuck in a place I don’t necessarily want to be in. I think everybody has this feeling. And it’s not that I am literally stuck in the worst place. I am just kind of sitting at a crossroads. I don’t know what I want but I do know that the outcome I want is… happiness.

I am like everyone else in that way. I just want the happy.

Now I can be happy in pretty much every situation, it’s true. It’s really just the perspective I keep to stay sane.

And even the worst days have things to be happy about.

Like yesterday we lost our lunch table and I had to eat lunch alone at my desk. Well I can say that it was cruddy and I didn’t get to see the outside at all yesterday until after 6.

Or I can say I got to draw at my desk for an hour… And that is where this little friend came from:

Dolly Parton is one of my favorite people. She really gets it in a totally awesome way. And by totally awesome way I mean “flashy clothes and big boobs.”

So although everyday may not be the best put up with it, live in it, and enjoy it. Because rain isn’t so bad when you are waiting for your rainbow.

And the best things about today is that it’s sunny, and I got to eat chicken fingers and make Jonathon a birthday card.

And hopefully my rainbow will be here soon. And yours too! I am not stingy with my joy.

Happy Tuesday! I hope it’s really wonderful ♥ (Image Courtesy of: Tumblr and NBC)

Dolly and Eric

13 Jul

This is mostly due to the fact Eric has been fiesty today:

I’ve been good and kept my photoshopping of Dolly Parton to myself. But I can no longer contain it… For Dolly seems to be bursting and the seems with excitement over Eric.

See how excited she is????

I really could not contain this anymore.

And Dolly would like to add that although you belong to the heart of Oprah… she will always love you….

enjoy!
