happy thursday everyone! wow i can't believe how this week has flown by! i love having a holiday on monday!! our 4th of july was really chill, spent the day in sf at the park with awesome friends, amazing burgers and great weather! the perfect way to spend 4th of july :)


i have a little over a week until my craft show and i am a bit nervous as i always am when going to a craft fair. i feel like i have great inventory to take with me to the show and i have been busting my butt at getting more animal portraits done. i finished this one over the weekend and i think she turned out so cute!!

let me introduce miss charolette! she is perfectly prime in her yellow pleated dress and always a bit camera shy but loves any chance to dress up in her most beautiful attire.

i think miss charolette came out super cute and i just love her scared bunny face! very fitting i feel as i have had many pet bunnies and they are always a wee bit shy ;D i have finished up all the frames and still have the koala to do but if i cant get to that one for some reason i think i will survive!

i wanted to share this video with you guys. a man stopped me on my way home while waiting for the train and told me to google this song "my white bicycle" by the band tomorrow. i had never heard of them and i just totally feel in love with this song!! this isn't the original video but it does the trick. i love all the random crazies i meet in sf! such an awesome friendly city!



well, i hope you all have a great weekend! the mister and are packing for our bike camping trip up north, yay :D it will be the first time in a long time we have gone camping alone, it will be so romantic! we leave at the butt crack of dawn friday morning and head out to our destination. i am so excited! we are taking gilbert, our tandem and will be staying till sunday. i will hopefully try to post monday but will play it by ear. can't wait to share our adventure with you!

don't forget tomorrow is citybirds chirp and i have a real cutie for tomorrows post! don't forget if you want to promote your shop or blog, shot me an email!

  2. Charlotte is adorable!! I love how your pet portraits are always dressed up like they're going somewhere important. You're so talented. I love the same thing about a small town, you can just stop and talk to random people. It's awesome!
