Happy Trees.

My college buds put together this really great youth event every month, 
promoting good fellowship and involves major event planning/decor/funsies. 
I love helping out at these events, seeing my friends, meeting awkward hilarious high school kids, pushing ourselves to our physical limit setting up..

anyway, last night we had a crazy maze..I've never loved fake cobwebs so much. 
All staff and *one* kid came in costumes, so much fun.
My old roomie and I came as this:

you know, this guy:

watch it.

seriously, those 16 seconds were a major throwback to my childhood.
PBS only days, filled with Barney, Sesame Street, and good ole Bob Ross!!

so fun.
and SO my painting mantra. haha

Happy October.



Work has put me in a routine.
It goes a little like this--

Alarm, snooze, 
morning routine,
morning traffic,
draw draw draw,
head home,
more traffic, 
dinner or the occasional hangout, 

It can get a little monotonous..
especially the parts of the day where I just stare at car bumpers for-evahh.

I feel like I had such a horrible work ethic throughout schooling, 
even with all the exciting projects and challenges.

But now I'm drawing cheese all day. 
I'm exaggerating..not really.

Yet I love it.. 
I do. I really really do.

An excerpt from something I read for church group:

"...perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony.

It is possible that God says every morning, "Do it again" to the sun;
and every evening, "Do it again" to the moon.

It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; 
it may be that God makes every daisy separately,
but he has never tired of making them...

The repetition in Nature may not be a mere recurrence;
it may be a theatrical encore."

-G.K. Chesterton

my prayer:

I want all these curdled milk illustrations to be a reflection of God's beautiful daisy artistry.
Seems so immediately mundane, repetitive, and monotonous,
but at the end of the day,
I won't tire of it. 

I'll just do it again. 

ugh, God is so great!
