it's feels like fall!

Hello blog dearies!

I hope you're having a lovely week. The weather here has been wonderful and plans to be more wonderful this weekend. Saturday will have a high of 72! Eeeek! So exciting to have it feel like fall. I even snagged some mellowcreme pumpkins tonight which I've about made myself sick on. Of course I washed them down with a diet coke. ha!


I've been practicing my lettering daily. I thought I would try my hand at drawing some fall images and coloring them in. Came out kinda cute!
I didn't really even know if I could draw these images but I looked each one up on Google images and then sketched them with a pencil. I really want to learn to draw simple things like this more. It was a lot of fun!

Caroline had a lot of fun this Sunday at church playing our new Kids Ministry mascot - Rover Comer. :) She even got to go on stage!

Check her out as in the middle of what we call "Praise and Worship." She had some moves I couldn't capture with a mere camera. :)

I was very proud of her although I don't think she will continue to be Rover Comer because she came out of the costume drenched in sweat! LOL I think a boy would be better suited.

I also had a fun role with the kids. I was a puppet called "Fast Talking Freida." Perfect, wouldn't you say!? I forgot to get a pic! I will next Sunday.

Today we're going somewhere exciting but I can't share it until it's over, per a promise to my girl. Pictures coming soon!

Have a fun Tuesday!

I think you have a natural ability with your drawing and lettering. I hope you continue to explore it. It looks really good. Thanks for sharing!

Your lettering is amazing. Great job. Envious of your weather. Right now, it is really muggy out and about 70 degrees. But, temps are dropping after today. Highs in the 50's with lows in the mid 30's. Rumor has we are in for a nasty and early winter. Homeschooling is going well here. :) How 'bout you? Did you find a curriculum for Caroline you are happy with? So neat that she dressed in the mascot costume. Yes, they are hot and sweaty though.

I also think you have a natural talent for lettering. It just keeps getting better and better:)

I think you definitely have to have some inner talent to sketch "things." I remember as a kid that I knew from the first---I am just not talented in that way. Now I can color things with the watercolor pencils and brushes, but the designs need to be stamped rather than hand drawn if I'm to expect any type of positive outcome!
