Illustration Friday: Jump

This week I felt like doing something with an old-fashioned feeling to it.

Hooray for the simple toys that never go out of style!

Illustration Friday: Vocal

This week's IF word made me think of Dr. Jane Goodall and the amazing work she does on behalf of animals and environmental conservation. (If you're interested, you can read more about her work and her life here!)

30-Day Drawing Challenge

I love the idea of this 30-Day Drawing Challenge (which I first heard about via Natali's blog). So I'm going to get on board starting today! My goal is to do one quick drawing each day, and to post them at the end of each week. Should be fun!

Anyone can join in. Maybe you'll want to do it too?

Happy Valentine's Day!

On Valentine's Day when we were little, my Dad always came home with a big box of chocolates for Mom and a mini one for each of us kids. It was the best!

In my own family, one of our Valentine's traditions is to have a dinner of french toast by candlelight. I don't know how it started, but it's one of our favorite meals of the year. And doesn't everything taste better by candlelight?

Hope you have a very sweet Valentine's Day!

Illustration Friday: Popularity

It was no surprise to learn that Thin Mints are the top-selling Girl Scout cookie, but I think the caramel ones are the best!

Illustration Friday: Forward

My dog Lucy seems to have a mad crush on Otis, a cute little beagle who lives down the street. In real life, their relationship will probably never get past the chasing-each-other-around-in-circles stage, but still, hooray for love, in all its forms!

Illustration Friday: Prepare

Each year we love to go to the big dog show in our area, and it's always fun to see the dogs being groomed before they go into the ring. Although they probably don't care much about being fabulous, they all seem to be such good sports about it!

Illustration Friday: Grounded

This little worm is safely grounded—for the moment, at least!

(Is it too early to be thinking of spring?)
