Styles today

Here is another hair style to do on girls. They called them pony Mohawks. Addy has 7 because she is 7. Avery has 4 because she is 4. Like their logic?

And when big sisters have little brothers.... You can see what happens.

Baby Faces!

Today, I spent an afternoon photographing one cute little boy! A friend wanted to get some photos taken of a baby that she nanny's, as a gift for the parents. After a few hours I captured some great facial expressions. Here are some of my favorites. This also turned out to be a great way to show all of the expressions at this stage of his life at 6 months.

Produce Stand

Along with a million other projects, here's one that is exciting this week! We are officially running a produce stand at my parent's farm. My boyfriend, Caleb, and younger brother, Lars, built an amazing stand. So far we are doing well, and hopefully our customers come back again! We have been selling produce and flowers. Tomorrow, I plan on sitting all day at the stand and painting, should be a wonderful day being able to stay outside and enjoy myself!

Flower Hair piece Crafts

Here is an image of one of our flower experiments. I think it's cute but I think it may be something I can easily do with the kids I babysit. Not sure if it is my style but it was certainly fun to make!

Hair dos!

Remember when you were 4 and you had so many pretty hair clips and couldn't decide which one to use?? one of my favorite parts of babysitting Is being able to play with Avery's hair. I let her pick out the hair clips she wants and I try to use them all!

She always cooperates and doesn't fuss if I comb out a knot. It's great. Since I'm at the beach this week we decided to try and make our own hair pieces. We are using things found in a craft store. Plain head bands, bobby pins, feathers, fake flowers.... I even have some sea shells from the beach I'll try to include. Hopefully it works out! I'll posts the out comes in the next few days.

Ice CreamDoodle

I drew this with the kids I babysit a few days ago. Now that I'm on vacation this week in Hilton Head Island I'm wishing I had an ice cream cone to go with this heat! Not my favorite drawing but I'm getting more practice with watercolor pencils. I think I got a little heavy with using black especially around the finger nails. I will try using gouache next time to fix some minor mistakes and add a different texture.
