This is Why I Can’t Get Any Writing Done Y’all

So I'm going to blame my procrastination on the sheer, raw power of four year old cuteness. See, I have this little girl, the aforementioned four year old. And she is convincing like a 1950's era used car salesman. She could sell sand to a desert lizard and make him feel like he got a bargain. Seriously, anyone with the wee ones know how persuasive they can be.

And my little girl doesn't care about me writing. Oh, no. Forget that. She wants to paint.

RIGHT NOW.

And she doesn't want to just paint by herself. Nope. She needs Mama.

RIGHT NOW.

So when I was supposed to be writing, this is the conversation I had and the resulting crazy artwork.

Mama: You want to paint so I can get some writing done?

Wee One: Yes!!! I do want to paint. I do, I do!!! Will you come paint with me, Mama?

(she then pulls out my chair at the art table and gives me the angelic head tilt smile. Heart melting, it is.)

Mama: You are so sweet! But I have to work.

The Wee One's head slowly lowers and she sighs, then looks up with wide eyes. Her trembling lips open and she whispers: Please, Mama? Can you paint me a monster with a monster house?

I sigh along with her and completely cave in, as I am known for doing. How can you say no to the trembling lips? And a request for a monster with a monster house?

So here is the resulting fun-silly-weird artwork per my four year old's request. She wanted a monster house with sixteen windows, three doors, made of sticks, with berry bushes all around and she wanted two monsters. Oh, and the monster house was being rained on with icky blue monster blood.

So there you have it, my faithful fans. The monsters reign supreme in my house, not the writing!

Owls, turtles, circles, and exhaustion

Man, oh man. Who would have thought throwing some prints up on Etsy would be so much work? The hardest part really is getting started and putting your work out there. When you are a delicate, sensitive flower of an artist like myself, opening yourself up to praise and criticism and even worse than both, indifference, is really hard. I am hoping for the best, editing a turtle, and blinking in my typical insomniac daze. I am afraid I cannot even think of all the wonderful to do's tommorrow not! even accounting for chasing my toddler around. You know what? This is all really exciting and I like to sound all complainy pants, but I am happy and excited about all the challenges and fun that lie ahead. I would upload the turtle for the world to see, but technical difficulties have arisen and my tech support has not. He is still slumbering peacefully this warm spring night. So cheers until next time, and perhaps I shall bless you with Turtle...
