Current Mood: excited for my birthday coming up! :)
Current Triumph: I got into my first car accident ever this month and totaled my car! That's not my triumph, ha! It's that my bruises are finally fading away AND I let my husband buy a minivan with the insurance money so now I have his awesome old car! I've wanted that car for YEARS so it makes me happy! :)
Current Bane of my Existence: my own attitude! I make plans that I look forward to but then somehow transform those plans into "obligations" and I DREAD obligations!
Current Artist I'm Diggin': recently discovered Aimee Hoover and I love the scale of her work!!!
Current Product/Tool/Material/Technique: I love pan pastels and these Soft Tools make working with them even easier!
Current Color Palette: corals and warm brights
Current Music: This song from the end of the Empire Records movie. :)
Current Food: Smoky Pepper Jack Turkey sandwich from McAllister's..... yum!
Current Movie/TV Show: Totally hooked on Riverdale on the CW. I grew up reading Archie comics but this is a totally fresh (and pretty scandalous) take on these characters! Addictive!
Current Book: just began Finding I Am by Lysa Terkeurst and I'm really excited for all I will learn!
Current Guilty Pleasure: having YouTube videos playing in the background whenever I'm home working on things around the house. It's kind of difficult because most of my subscriptions are to art channels so I really need to WATCH what they're doing but it feels like an accomplishment to clear my queue. :)
Current Need: parenting advice for my strong-willed Three-nager. Punishment doesn't work. Rewards don't work. I just can't figure out how to motivate this girl to make better choices!
Current Want: Someone to stand over me and make me art! Because I seem to find every excuse in the world to put it off and it's what makes me happiest!
Currently Studying: Right now I am studying about the Feast of Unleavened Bread and how Jesus is the Bread of Life. Nothing in scripture is happenstance and I love unraveling all the levels of meaning!
