Daily Doodle: Week 6

Well, I'm a week late in posting Week 6's Doodles, so it's time to catch up!  

The focus of the series of Doodles I did this week was a view of the Central Park Boating Lake with the skyline of Central Park South in the background.  I took the photo during a bike ride through Central Park on our trip to NYC in August, and it made it onto my list of pictures I'd like to recreate in my Paint My Vacation series.  You have noticed by now that both of the subjects I've chosen for Paint My Vacation have been from the same trip to NYC last year, but I do intend to branch out to another location for my next one.

Daily Doodles: Week 5

Hello again!  Week 5's Doodle post will include 5 Doodles, all of which turned out to be watercolors.  I'm really enjoying working with watercolors right now, and have even more planned for Week 6!  There's a bonus this week: In addition to five more Doodles, you get a recipe recommendation with February 3rd's Doodle.  And it's delicious!

DIY Medal + Trophy Display Shelf

The Mister and I met when we were 16 and on our high school cross country team, and running has been a major part of our lives ever since.  It only makes sense that it would be important to us to create a place to display the medals, plaques, and race bibs we have accumulated over the years.

Daily Doodle: Week 4

I fell behind a bit with my Doodles last week.  I had hoped to catch up by Sunday so I could finish January with an even (odd!) 31 Doodles, but came up short at 28 Doodles.  But that's 28 more Doodles than I've ever done in a month, so I'll take it!  Plus, I spent a couple of hours catching up yesterday morning, and have now pulled ahead - I have one extra Doodle in my sketchbook!
