Octopus time

So I've been watching a lot of HGTV and decorating shows. My decorating style is "Collect up stuff I love and put it all in the room with also some random hand me down functional but boring old stuff". It works for me.
In my collecting up stuff I love I often go on Etsy for inspiration. I found some art the other day that I love at PRRINT. Especially the octopus printed on dictionary paper art.
So I made some:
I found the cool 9-UP frame at goodwill for $3.99 and I already had an old dictionary. So I put them together with some printed octopus pictures, colored them with my copics and done.

I had an extra octopus that I didn't quite like for the wall art so I made him into a cool notecard:
Easy peasy!

So I've been gone for EVER. I've been busy and under inspired. While I was gone:
  • Calvin and Stephen both had surgery, they are both fine.
  • I lost 15lbs and gained 5.
  • I'm still working out regularly.
  • I made some new curtains and a cool skirt.
  • I started playing Farmville and it is wasting a lot of my time.
  • I got chickens! You know, pet chickens! I love them.
  • Calvin stands now and almost walks.
  • Stephen is doing great in 1st grade and Ethan is doing great in Kindergarten.
  • Brian's job is WAY better and he's home a lot more now.
  • I got published twice.
Some other stuff happened but that's enough catchup. I have a lot of projects already photographed that I hope to share to get me going with the blog again. I've missed it.
