ART + LIFE // JUNE 16

The last few months have been good ones – focusing on self, art + what’s to come.  For now, I’ve discontinued sales of my art prints and look forward to building a new body of original work.  Originals are still for sale directly from me – let me know if you’d like to purchase anything you see!

I’ve just put up two different new pages in the COLORING section.  Check them out, help yourself, and let me know what you think!

If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat, you know I’m always drawing whether my shop is open or not – OR doing my first favorite thing, travelling with my partner in crime.  So far this year we’ve conquered parts of Death Valley, Red Rocks National Park in Nevada, and Mission Trails National Park in San Diego.

In Mountain Spring, Nevada we stayed in a tipi and our closest neighbor was an American Bison.  Thomas approved.

And naturally we can’t go anywhere near Vegas without burning our faces off and going into Arizona to visit the Temples in Lake Mead:

Last week we did a quick camping trip at Lake Kumeyaay in San Diego.  Not a shabby sight to wake up to:

While in San Diego, we picked up the newest member of our pack.
Meet Laika!  Siberian husky puppy and tiny hunter extraordinaire:

RX : Jelly Donut Muffins

If we follow each other on Instagram, you know some weeks I bake like I actually get paid for it.  (I don’t, except in hugs and smiles and alls I need :)

I bake Jelly Donut Muffins fairly often – they’re quick, easy, and you can use whatever jam, jelly, pudding, cream or custard you have handy.   The batch I made here was half grape jelly and half pumpkin butter since I only had a couple tablespoons left in each jar.
