Plant Babies!

We finally have lil' fruits on our plants!! This years garden is going way better than last year. Not having a hose and having to water everything from a watering can has made this quite the labor of love. BUT I love watching everything growing. Its all getting so big!! 
Our first little baby jalapeno baby! Hopefully we get some more!
Lumpy tomato baby #1! We lost the tags for the tomatoes so what these will look like is a bit of a mystery. So far its kinda a cool wonky shape! This plant is really full and bushy so I think it'll have a lota fruits!
Lil' round babe #2! This plant is a bit sparse and I thought I killed it a couple times, but its a fighter! Also the fruits are super round and teeny! I'm curious what this guy will look like full grown!

The only plant we lost so far was a cilantro. I'm so bummed about it too and its totally my fault. But only one out of the group is pretty good! I'm kinda surprised I didn't kill more! I'll share pictures as soon and more fruits come in!

Weekend Adventures: Alt Press Fest!

Alt Press Fest was last weekend! I'm finally recovered from all my social-exhaustion and finding time to post some pictures. I was a lot more adventurous this time around! I actually got up and walked around a little bit and bought some zines! Last one I was too nervous to walk around and talk to people so I just hid behind my table the whole day. But this time I really did have a ton of fun! I couldn't have done it with out Zoei helping me staple and sitting with me all day! I'll admit there were a lot of awkward silences when people came to our table. Something I should really work on! 
Our little half table!
These are all the new ones I made! Its still amazing that I got them done especially since I was still editing and printing on Friday! One day I'll get around to posting the extra on Etsy and telling you more about all the new ones!
Candy dish I made! I wanted something cute for our table so I made this little gal! She's so cute and you can take candy out of her mouth!! I forgot how much I love paper-mache! So much fun.
I love our little set up! I publish all my stuff under the name Peachy Keen Press named after my Etsy shop. I love LOVE the table cloth Zoei made. Lotsa cute little bobbles!! 

I learned so much! People here were not the nicest and I'll admit I got some criticism that wasn't too helpful. I had a few wallowing days but now I'm back at it! I love that my style is "cute" I love that my table is peachy and pretty. I feel like I've got something important to say with my zines. When someone picks up one of my zines I want to to make them feel happy and smile and feel somewhat relatable to my zines. I know thats not going to happen every time someone stops at my table but when it does happen it is the BEST! I'm going to keep creating zines and tabling at zine fests!

Song and Doodle # 67

Today song and doodle is Rewind by Sylvan Esso! I have to say there new album is absolutely AH-mazing! I was really nervous because follow up albums have a bad habit of flopping, but this one does not disappoint! The last track on the album is my favorite. Its super catchy and fun to sing with. This album is much more dancy, which is saying a lot cause the last one was hella dancy as well! Both albums are really good! Check them out and listen to this song! Let me know what you think!

Learning how to shake that thing
Learning how the grown ups dream"

June Art Journal

This months journal is a little less artsy and a little more wordy. I'm surprised that I had any time to work in it and I'm super happy that I got it done! I put off all my zine making for Alt Press until the last minute (procrastination queen for the win!) Which left little time for my art journaling and letters. BUT luckily I found time for both. Although posting on here got behind. One of these days I'll learn how to balance all the things I want to do! (and take over the world!!)
*Julys first page really needs some TLC!!

Alt Press Fest!

I've been quite the lazy blogger this past week. I feel like I've got good reasons though. I signed up to table at Alt Press Fest. I'm trying to put together some new zines. I have tons of ideas but not enough time! Getting the stomach flu last week did not help one bit. But its down to the wire now! Only one weekend left! If you're in the Salt Lake area you can come see me and Zoei and pick up some zines! Theres a ton of really cool artists and independent publishers that'll be there. You can find more information HERE or THERE!

I'm really nervous and anxious and excited! I promise I'll be better at taking photos this time and posting some of the new zines I'm working on. Hopefully I can get them finished!

Index Cards 1-10

Here are my index cards days one though ten as part of the Index-Card-A-Day Challenge! I've been doing pretty good at keeping up on doing a card a day. Although some of the cards I'm not too happy with, but I think thats part of it. Its a good way to just move onto the next card! This first batch had an orange vibe to it. I think they'll look cool once I compile them. I'll post another batch soon!

Desk Findings: New Tools!

I was cleaning off my desk and found some things I wanted to share! I love all of these little bits!
1-Tomoe River Kanso Sasshi Booklet. I love looooove Tomoe River paper! So when I saw this I just had to get them. I've been wanting to do more sketching and these will be perfect!
2-Pilot Color Eno Mechanical Pencil. I saw an artist doing sketches with a blue pencil and I LOVED them! Naturally I got myself a blue pencil and I love it.
3-Reeves Water-soluble Wax Pastels. I have a whole set these and they are so lovely! My all time favorite color is dark grey. Its kinda blue kinda grey and goes great on everything!
4- Rose Gold Wire Binder Clips. I have another confession. I saw these clips on instagram in someones art journal and I fell in love! When I saw them on blitsy I just had to snag them up!

Index-Card-A-Day Challenge!

I'm not sure what I was thinking tacking on yet another project but I just loved the idea so much that I couldn't pass it up! The idea is that for 2 months you art-up an index card each day. Its put on by the lovely Daisy Yellow art blog! You can read all about the project HERE! I started a little bit late but have almost caught up. There are some prompts and what nots to help. So far I've just been doing whatever. Its only just the beginning but I'm really loving it! I'm surprised how easy and quick it is! This isn't a project that takes a lot of time or planning. You just grab a card and start layering stuff on. I love that aspect! All the projects I usually work on take a bit of planning and sketching. Its a really nice break to work on index cards. I can start and finish it before I get working on my other projects!

Anyways I'm really excited about this project! Its the prefect thing to keep me out of a creative slump! If you do participate remember to use the hashtag #dyicad2017 and let me know your instagram name in the comments so I can see your cards!!
