what i haven't been doing

i have a confession to make

i've been hating blogging and blogger world for the past couple of weeks
maybe hate is to strong of a word...dreading.. maybe thats it.
i dread getting on and seeing "0 comments/views"
i'm just sorta tired of it all.

i haven't been drawing a lot
i haven't been taking pictures like crazy {unless you count sundays photos shoot}
and if i do i delete them all..
i haven't been painting
i haven't been writing
i haven't been sleeping well
food hasn't been sitting well
i haven't been playing my cello
i haven't been sewing
i haven't been inspired
the list of 'haven't's goes on

i don't even want to talk about what i have been doing.
because for some reason, it doesn't make me has happy as it normally does..
and because this is turning out boo-hooey sad, and i don't really mean it to
feast your eyes on this load of sweetness here and smile.

i'm ok.
i just want a break
i'll be back in September with renewed inspiration, Lord willing, and lots of beautiful pictures of my beautiful life! because really. life is beautiful, even if i'm not doing things i normally do and enjoy.

not so baby

early this spring

last sunday at the lake

a few days ago i had lunch with baby ;)

this is "baby luke", he's 3 now, so not really a baby. but hey, thats his name. everyone calls him baby luke, and it seems as if that is all he'll ever be called.
of course the day will come when he refuses to let anyone call him by such a degrading term such as baby. but for now. we're all glad he doesn't mind!

this is my pastors son, not a lil' sibling..i don't have any :(

on the loom

for the past week or so i've been spending my after school hours listening to music or watching TV while making bead bracelets, i estimate one bracelet for 3 shows of No Ordinary Family {cheezy, but awesome} or about 2 michael buble albums per bracelet. it gives me something productive to do, while still getting to chill. i love creating the patterns. it keeps me focused without stressing me out.
what do you like to zone out to while still staying productive?

another one of those days

we all have them.
they are called. boring.
nothing has gone on today, nothing will. its one of those days were you sleep in cos you stayed up till 4am with friends watching the hunger games. its one of those days where you waist to much time watching tv. and when you realize, is it really already football season? and seriously. where's the ice cream? we have none. :(
i like these days, even if finding inspiration and motivation is hard. we all need boring days to level us out.

i've been looking through pictures of my nj boy. he's grown up SO much since i've known him. he'll be 6 in 6 months. *sniff* i want him to be a baby again.

and now i have nothing else to say. so i'll leave you with THIS and hope you laugh as much as i did!

a peak inside my sketchbook plus...

 dearest Mr. Adam. he's the best.

i haven't stopped drawing and painting. hallelujah! no seriously. ;)
i recently got a water pen
its *amazing*

also, i got tagged. thats the plus. if you can call it that.  i *don't* do tags. but i'll make an exception because i was tagged by my best friend, who's the bestest in the whole wide world. just saying.  
i'm also going to cheat, and not tag any one else or put down the rules or anything like that {you should be thankful, actually}
and since i LOVED Caitria's questions, and Rinski's, i'm going to do all of them. enjoy!
from Caitria.
If you could do only one more thing before you died, what would it be?
that would depend, if i had a certian amount of time, a month, maybe a year, then i'd engross myself 
in some sort of long project, like world traveling. thats one thing. right?
if i had a day, i wouldn't do a thing. just live like normal.
  What is your favorite place in the world?
 like Rachel said, wherever my loved ones are. if i'm there. i'm good.

Can you breath with your tongue sticking out? 
why yes, i can! 
Now put your tongue back in. Ice cream or cheese cake?
cheese cake.
 What was your first memory?
 i was 3 or 4, living in Chihuahua Mexico where i was born, and it snowed outside. i can remember standing at the window watching the snow fall and being so amazed. i even remember what the yard looked like and the house i was in too.
i can't believe i remember that!
from Rinski
!. What's your favorite pringles flavor?
i hate pringles. they have no flavor -_-
@. Do you play any instrument? If so, what do you play? 
#. What's your favorite music Genre? 
 thats like asking how many movies i've seen :p
lets see. jazz, rock, r&b, bluegrass, classical, americana, folk, ect-. all those mixed up.
$. Which is more terrifying? Tornadoes or Earthquakes? 
 earthquakes. because the idea of the earth swallowing me up is soo much more scary than a tornado!
%. What's the wildest thing you've ever done?
i'm not really a wild person..this is hard. probably that time i called that boy. 
that was wild. ;p

now i'm supposed to think of 5 favorite words.

this is an incredibly cheesy post, huh?
