halloween girlies

A couple quick sketches of two of my very good friends - Jackie and Heidi, and then myself, in our Halloween costumes from this weekend. We celebrated up in Milwaukee and a marvelous time was had by all!

My 1950s getup came together quite nicely I must say, considering I didn't give my "faux bangs" a test run beforehand (I actually have bangs, but surprisingly they made it more tricky to roll the hair in front ...).  I also made my very first piece of clothing ever: a circle skirt! I ADORE it - it is so much fun to wear, petticoat and all!

I successfully completed my very first 5K this weekend in Chi-town! WOOHOO!  Cannot wait for it to come to Milwaukee next year.  Declared to be "the happiest 5K on the planet" - I would say the Color Run most definitely lives up to its bold affirmation.  We all had a BLAST!  Besides the part where I got blue powder blasted directly into my eyeball... But other than that - it was just amazingly good fun.

creature feature friday!

bovid x edmontosaurus?  I have no idea what this crazy creature is that I created, but we'll just call him a "big, beefy ruminant with funky nasal air sac"...

teeny tiny!

I had the pleasure of spending part of my weekend in the presence of an absolutely ADORABLE teeny, tiny puppy :3  ERMAHGERD. Holy cuteness overload...  Many thanks to the friend who was puppy-sitting for tolerating my childish glee :)
