a colorful weekend

9-21-groovy-doodle-cards

i was barely functional today after a long night with a sick and unhappy little girl (if the insomnia doesn't get me, the three year old does), a traumatic start to the morning by getting someone else's beverage at starbucks, and a gray and fuzzy day in general...but i thought i'd pop in with a few quick pics of our fantastic hike yesterday through the kansas wildflowers, a fun store window downtown, and my little doodlecards which are finally in the shop.

here are a few gems from my local lovelies that i keep meaning to mention - heather did a post on her stunning handmade watercolors, and christy just launched a gorgeous new storefront for the petite press. (if you are a letterpress addict, beware.)

hoping tomorrow will start off on a more colorful note. thanks again for all of your wonderful comments on my last post :)

tomorrow will be a blast, you'll see...

little 'un doing better, right?
however, beware of insomnia; it's a treacherous little bugger that can get to you when you least expect it (its side-effects, that is).
I know, I know you can beat it no problem what with a colourful-doodle-charged pen, I know, just sayin'. ;)

thanks for the links! just what i needed to brighten up my day. your doodle cards are fab. don´t ever stop doodling... as opposed to dawdling... the other day i told daniel, to stop dawdling and he said, but i like to doodle... hugs!

Erin Butson said...

I love your style & I love those doodles. I hope the little one is feeling better. Everything stops when ai little one gets sick...

kj said...

my favorite: when you wander locally and your eyes find all this color.

one of these days, when it's a rainy day and maybe even a windstorm too, i am going to come to your blog and stay for hours, letting your colors straighten any black and white problems i may have!

thanks again aimee!
