New-(ish) Drawings.

Here are some sort of new drawings and watercolors I've done in the past few months. I haven't been working on my art nearly as much as I'd like to, but inspiration has been scarce.

Sorry that the scan quality isn't all that great.
Also, please don't use these images without contacting me, (I'd love to hear from you!)

Here's another print I would love to include in the nursery's art wall.
You can find it here.

Mister Elephant.

I really want this print from Geninne for the nursery. I love her birds, but think this little elephant will be perfect for my little man.

Poor Little Bunny.

Rudy came home today with the beginnings of the nasty cold I had last week. He's asleep now. We watched this video together before he dozed off, and I thought it was too funny not to share! Good thing he's not whiny and all that, but I did go get him some soup.

You are everything.

God in my living
There in my breathing
God in my waking
God in my sleeping
God in my resting
There in my working
God in my thinking
God in my speaking

God in my hoping
There in my dreaming
God in my watching
God in my waiting
God in my laughing
There in my weeping
God in my hurting
God in my healing

Be my everything.

-Sang this worship song today and it gets me every time.

Pretty posters for our new place.

I mentioned below that we are moving on June 1st. This means getting to decorate a whole new place! I'm thinking two over-sized, mustard yellow vintage posters from here above the sofa.


I mentioned before that Rudy and I were looking for another place, as the one we are in will be a bit too tight for our budget once the baby comes and I stop working. Our landlords let us know that we could not sneak our way out of our lease, (which is up in August), meaning we would have to move just a month before the little guy comes and that we couldn't save some extra dough in the mean time. This was a disappointment for me, even though I know that's what a lease is. A contract. Not to be broken. But I mean, I've heard that kids cost all kinds of money, and who wants to move with a belly out-to-there!

Anyhow, the landlords dropped by one Saturday, May 1st actually, to say that it would be better for them if we could be out by June 1st, because their son needs a place to stay and would help them fix the house up. My first reaction was relief. My second worry. We now had one month to find a place and move in.

To craigslist we went, and decided to check out a one bedroom apartment, (too small, but why not look?), that was down by the bike path. The landlord emailed me right back and said we could stop by the next day, a Sunday! Even though that one was too tiny for us, he mentioned that he had a two bedroom coming available and we could run by that unit right then! And it was perfect!

We were the fifth people to look at it, but the first to put in an application. They ran it, and we're in!! We signed the lease today, in McDonalds of all places. The Lord is so faithful. I never imagined we'd be given back our deposit AND find a place so close to our current house in such amazing shape. Why do I even bother worrying for one second? I know we are being taken care of.

Mister Alligator.

Dear Mister Alligator, would you like to come live in my little boy's room?

So I thought since it was Mother's Day, I would announce to all of you readers that Rudy and I are having a BOY!!

Here are some pictures of the little guy from our first ultrasound. It was so amazing to see him, and watch him move around. I can't wait to meet him in person!

Also, happy Mother's Day to my wonderful mom, soon-to-be Grandma Cici.

Picture wall.

I've been thinking lately about the baby's room. One thing I definitely want to include is a wall of pictures in white frames. This picture (found here), is from a cafe in New York, and is exactly what I had in mind.

I would like to do a mixture of my art as well as prints that I love from etsy. This way it would be affordable, and then as the little one grows up I can change out the prints with their artwork!
