Artsy Fartsy

November 11, 2011

Not sure if I mentioned this, but towards the end of my most recent pregnancy I was getting really squirrely…bored, restless, and uninspired. I was too big too cook or bake and pretty much too cranky and miserable to do anything but lay around. So once I discovered Pinterest, thanks to my sister-in-law, the light came back on.

I painted 6 canvases two weeks leading up to the birth of Giselle, and another 4 or so as soon as I was home from the hospital and could stand without blacking out. Since then I have also:

  • dabbled in glue-art
  • discovered how to wear my hair in a sock bun and have it look like a super model the next morning
  • paint pumpkins for a more festive Halloween look
  • bake a cinnamon sugar loaf in under 7 minutes
  • wear my scarf in a new fancy way

Oh and so much more. Hello inspiration! It’s back! And now, as I get more time in the kitchen to play with food for my darling picky eater (who improves daily around here…we’ve had a chickpea breakthrough and mac & cheese as well…hallelujah) I hope to also crank out some fun art projects to show you all that I’m not just sitting around watching daytime television. Ok, so yah, there’s a bit of that happening too, but let’s just pretend I’m being really productive and creative all day instead? At least, maybe tell my husband I am…?  😉

    Love love love it. I think you need separate step by step instructions on “how to wear a your sock bun”. You look fabulous!

      I’ll post the link and my sock bun hair photos to the blog; great suggestion Laura! Hope these added topics on my blogs are enjoyed by everyone. Nice to branch out a bit from cooking and baking.
