On Loves Wings Digital Stamp

Wow, it's been over a week since my last post. Where does the time go? I always try to post a few times over the course of a week, but somehow I just got lost in the shuffle of everyday life. It's been a fairly creative week too. I've had a slight case of insomnia for the past several days, so rather than lying in bed trying to sleep I just spent the late night hours in my craft room, and with Valentine's Day just around the corner I've had plenty of inspiration to draw with. 
The stores are packed with romantic hearts, beautiful shades of red and pink, and whimsical touches abound. I love this holiday. I love the decorations. They're just so eye catching and pretty.

On Painted Wings

I love the days spent at home with my son. They truly are just the best days ever. Just the two of us hanging out, playing with toys, and munching on snacks all day.

We spent the morning coloring my latest illustration. Together we colored On Painted Wings three times. He was quite excited to be sharing mommy's Copics. I gave him my set of Prismacolors to play with awhile back and told him he was lucky because most toddlers get washable markers, lol. I'm brave, I know. Even with his own set of markers he seems to know that mine are special, so he was just thrilled to use them with me.
When he napped in the middle of the afternoon, I sat in a dimly lit room and colored my cutie one more time. This one would be for my blog.

After napping with him for an hour, we sat in the middle of the kitchen floor snacking on grapes that I had cut long ways into pieces. I sat there with my arm around him while he talked endlessly. I still have no idea what he's truly saying, but he seemed happy, and I was having one of those mamma moments where I'm hoping this never ends. I have so many of those. The days just pass by way to fast, but they truly are wonderful.

Cooking with Jenna

We've been having quite a winter storm here recently. It's currently -8 outside and not a single one of our cars will start. We've been trying to charge the batteries all morning but so far no luck. It looks like today is going to be a stay at home and enjoy the snow kind of day.

I can't really complain though, it gives me more time to craft and create.

Cooking with Jenna

I've been working on this cutie since October. I wanted something special to put on the cover of a cookbook mini album. I took so much time making her just right. I've been planning my album in my mind for over a year now and I'm super excited to finally begin creating it.

Copic colors:

Enjoy coloring and crafting with Cooking with Jenna but please give me, Anna Stillwell at Cuddlebug Cuties, credit for drawing her. And feel free to link back your projects, I love seeing what others create with my images.
Have a wonderful day everyone.

A Perfect New Years Day

Can you believe it's already a new year?
Seems the days of 2013 just flew by.

It was a picture perfect holiday this year. I'm not usually the stay up all night and make a lot of noise person on New Years. I tend to watch the countdown on tv while enjoying a nice cup of coffee on my couch, then crawl into bed by 12:05. Oddly this year I got to sleep in, which is so rare but so wonderful and somehow I seemed to be ahead on all the housework so I spent the morning relaxing.

By lunchtime I started slow cooking a homemade soup and enjoyed simmering it most of the afternoon. I so love to cook but hardly ever have tons of time to spend the whole day cooking but I decided that I would put in a little extra effort and topped dinner off with homemade blueberry lemon cream cheese cupcakes. It was such a wonderful meal.

We spent the rest of the afternoon watching snow come in.
It was peaceful and relaxing. 
A completely perfect day at home.

And now it's day number two.
Time to get back to work and name a few winners for candy.

The winner for the December Candy is:
Rebecca from Sydneys Sentiments
