I wanted to thank all of you who voted for Veronica and my kitty creation. We made it to the top 25 of the competition out of 198.
We consider this a victory.
And I consider it like a “Silver Lining’s Playlist” kind of victory! Like I was jumping around the house looking like this:
It was our first try after all and to get that far just seemed like a dream. So seriously, thanks for even reading the blog!
And now on to a doodle… today is kinda grey here and well I’m feeling like such a winner it’s can’t even stop the sunbeams from following me.
So I made this to express my feelings about how happy I am:
I hope that your day is a little magical. Because I’m still jumping up and down here.
Okay I know I’ve been the worst updating but I’ve been doing artsy things… I promise!
Veronica and I joined forces to make this little number for Threadless:
And we’re super proud of it. It would mean ever so much to Vero & me if you could help me out and vote for this!
Take a minute… click on the image or this link here and give us a vote!

The answer is drawing cats and constellations. I am currently working on a project with a lovely friend who is a wonderful artist herself.
Soon I will have a whole picture to this until then enjoy this rough draft I sent her to make her laugh:
Some people are wild about sports.
Some people are crazy about fancy eateries.
Some people covet commercial jingles.
I personally delight in the 23 boastful flavors of Dr. Pepper!
I could drink it all the time. I fear that someday I will be discovered passed out with a case around me and a smile on my face.
Combine Dr. Pepper with my back pain pills and I may even laugh at Ashton Kutcher… or more honestly I will just sing Huey Lewis songs.
I haven’t posted anything in approximately 1 forever.
So I have been everywhere in most of California in the last few weeks.
It’s been amazing.
And well I can say one thing I don’t think I have laughed as much as I have in a very long time. And it’s so very good to laugh.
And my laughing accomplice you may ask???
My sister the second most giggly person in my family*
*No one can giggle as much as I can. I may actually be made of 93% giggles.
I hope everyone else out there has had at least one giggle today.
And if you haven’t watch this:
It made me giggle and swoon more than once.
Sometimes I try to conquer my bad hair with knowledge. I leaf through the internet’s tips and suggestions…
And then with enough alcohol and coconut oil… I get brave!
And sometimes it doesn’t work out the way I planned:
This happens every time… and then I just go out with my frizzy hair… and a lot of self confidence.
Sometimes the doodle can explain itself.
I think this is one of those times:
As promised here is part 2.
True story, when I get out of the shower it’s a countdown to an afro that could outshine 1980’s Whitney Houston…. But the only person I want to dance with is someone with a hair tie.
When my hair is in such an uproar being around me is dangerous.
If you are in a 5′ range you could end up with hair in your mouth or eye.
You could be infringed from watching television if seated behind me.
You could be filled with memories of the 1980s and perhaps wonder when Chaka Kahn is releasing her latest album.
Or you could also be inspired to plant a hedge in front of your house,
All of these things have really happened.
I have been threatening for a while to make a theme week of doodles… and I thought what could I draw about for a whole week?
And then I thought about the thing that plagues me every morning of every day of my life: MY HAIR!
Everyday I wake up looking like a 1980s hair band member, wrestler, or even King Louis XIV of France. None particular hair dreams.
So lets get this started:
