Animal Flowers

I mentioned in my last post that I am heading towards drawing more and less in painting. About a week before my 20th birthday, right I'm no longer a teen(ha!), I bought myself a new drawing journal. I wanted to start new and only draw real things in it, no dumb doodles. Here are a few drawings I've created in my silence.

I love this one, it has gold accents and a bit of a gold mistake on a pedal.

I drew this for my mom for Mother's Day and I was so happy with how well the dog came out. The picture is in progress but it came out very well.

These two I have been drawing at home on my days off and in the car during my lunches at work.

Hope you love it!
Love and Turtledoves,

Words that haven't been said

So I've come to the realization that I am an awful blogger and it will probably take a shit ton of training to make me a good one. I'm going to have to take this more seriously and put more thought into it, because truthfully I let this sit for way too long. I used to post all the time, way back in the day, but now it's so rare it feels fake. That's going to change (how many times have I said that).

In my absence William and I have moved to southern california, home home home at last. Our apartment is tiny in comparison to our Las Vegas one, yet somehow it has more heart. It feels right to be here, and we are so much happier. Even the cats seem a little happier, they're awake more often in the day and demand more snugs and attention. As a whole we are a happy family.

I've been away from my art a little bit but I'm hoping once my schedule gets more consistant that I'll be able to focus on it more. Right now I'm drawing a lot because it takes much less set up and clean up than painting or sewing.

I feel whole once again.
Love and Turtledoves,

P.S. Although I do miss my washer/dryer ;)

This move is starting a brew in my mind that I dread. Ever since I was young change has brought back my depression that brings me low low low. I can feel it coming back. Leaving work has left me not caring so much, which is pretty bad too. But when I'm alone I can feel that slow creep of loneliness that hasn't been around in a while.

It's mostly at night when I'm waiting to get William from work. It creeps up my heart until I feel anchored to the spot. It doesn't leave until I wake up tomorrow morning, sometimes not even then.

I can't wait to move and be settled, then it'll leave.

The Trek Across a State

This month is a stressful one. We are taking on the difficult task of moving from cheap but not so great Nevada to expensive but heart warming California. We are determined to move April 30 and I swear I'm going to be heartbroken if it doesn't happen. I miss the way I feel when I'm home and around my family all the time. I want William to know that love. There is nothing I want more than for my little family with William and our cats to become a big family with my parents and siblings. 

I want to go to school to learn how to be an amazing artist. I want to know about different kinds of art, different artists, and different techniques. I want to meet other artists and grow from them. I have creative friends that I adore but I want someone who gets the need to create for a living. 

Truthfully I miss my friends so much. I miss my family. I miss California and how comfortable it feels there.

Want, Need, Gift three

Oops so I missed last weeks WNG! Sorry sorry, I'm not a very good blogger anymore.


This Illusion Ponte Bodycon Dress from Wet Seal. Although truthfully I don't know how well it would fit or look on me, I just love the mesh.
Ro'sArgan body Conditioner by Lush. It's like lotion in the shower and smells perfectly like roses, and no not like crazy heavy old lady perfume but like you rubbed yourself with roses all over. I love this stuff but at $30 a tub I haven't bought it in a good while. 

Also if you've never been to a Lush you need to find your nearest and get your batooty over there. It's a cosmetic HEAVEN.


I really want to get William the Die Hard collection cuz he wants it so damn bad. We'll see what the Valentine's Day fairy will bring!

Love and Turtledoves,

Want, Need, Gift two

This week, I need:

A new nose ring. I'll settle for a titanium retainer (1) but I'd really love to buy a nice clicker from Industrial Strength (2). Both of these are pictured from Body Art Forms but are made by Industrial Strength. And I say I need a new nose ring because I'm down to two very bad quality ones and that just won't do.

I Want:

These absolutely stunning Goldstone teardrop plugs with lab made opal inlays made by Heartonsleevejewelry. Drool worthy amirite?

I wish I could Gift:

Every time I see these Pear cut navel bars I think of Ashley. I don't know what she'd like but in my head I'd get her the Citrine one on the right and have it anodized *which means have the titanium turned a color* ice blue or fuchsia. These navel bars are made by Anatometal and the picture is from Body Art Forms.

Well I guess this week turned into a body jewelry Want, Need, Gift. I hope you liked it!
Love and Turtledoves,
