Snail Mail My Email: Sent Letters!

A little bit ago I signed up for the Snail Mail My Email Project! I posted about it HERE. This past week the project ended and I wanted to share the mail art that I sent! I was surprised by how many of the letters I got didn't have any specific theme or doodle listed. Which was kinda fun cause then I could just do whatever I wanted! I love this idea and I think its so neat! I kinda wish it was just more than once a year. Its really fun to peruse the instagram to see what other people sent!
This one was for sure my favorite! I've never painted space before! It was surprisingly fun!

October Art Journal!

I'm a bit behind on posting this! Time is just escaping far too quickly and the laziness bug might've attached itself to my leg. So it goes! October was a pretty lovely fallish month! Am I the only one that feels like Christmas is only a week away? Its not even December yet! Time is playing tricks on me!

Onward and upward! Cheers to fun journals!

Out Going Mail!

I haven't been sending out much mail but I found these letters from October that I forgot to post! I think I'm finally caught up on my reply pile. I still have a long list of letters to write. Also the Snail Mail My Email project was launched today! So in the next couple weeks I'll have some more mail-ness to work on!

Hello November!

Oh man I think October was one of the laziest months I've had this year. Creatively speaking that is. I hardly sent out any mail and let my lil'blog get behind. Seems like ever since I moved I haven't found my creative spirit since. I'm not sure if its the change in the weather, environment or something else all together. I keep feeling like I need to just force myself to do something, anything creative. Even though I know if I'm not in the mood it'll turn out pretty crappy. BUT maybe that crappy result will give me the fire in my belly to create something wonderfully beautiful. Until than I suppose I'll just binge watch GIRLS and eat some pumpkin ice cream!

Any who, enough of me ranting about my feeeeeelings. Here are some photos from October that I wanted to share!
Carving pumpkins is something we always did growing up and as we got older we still continued to dig our hands into the smelly things. There just something about carving them that drowns me in nostalgia and I adore it.
This one is Zoei's. She always has the best. The amazing thing about her is her drawing skills are just ok but her sculpting skills are so incredibly natural she easily blows everyone out of the water. Definitely not a traditional medium kinda gal and I love it!
I had to make a desert for a work party so I made a bowl of worms! It turned out so creepy I thought people might not eat it. Luckily for me I just plopped them on a cool whip, marshmallow mixture and people couldn't resist. I mean come on, its cool whip and marshmallows what is not to love! Everyone devoured my creepy creation, which was wonderfully gross to watch!
Shameless bathroom selfie of my costume! This was totally a last minute idea. Zoei and I were wandering around Target when we found this fluffy sweater and things magically fell into place. It only took me one and a half episodes of Bobs Burgers to finish it! Which worked out really well cause those worms took up a lot of time! 
FACT: I'm incredibly unphotogenic and YES this is the best photo of me out of all the photos taken that day. Plus I didn't know what to do with my arms and I think I forgot to smile? But I wanted to share how cute my sisters costumes turned out. I'm still in awe over Zoei's Mary Marvel dress! 
I also wanted to share my shoes! Which was my favorite part of the rain cloud! My feet got cut off of every photo from that day. I harvested that stuffing from a dog toy and found these socks for $2! I thought it was clever and cute, but maybe I shouldn't compliment myself so much!

Phew! That month went by really fast. I hope you're all diving into the cold weather and preparing yourself of the holiday season! It is definitely among us!
