Complicated.

The thought of moving is exciting and thrilling. It gets my mind chasing and springing to life! What will my neighbors be like? How will the neighborhood fair, to right now? When will I start having kiddos!?!๐Ÿ˜Š Will my home be as colorful as I imagine? Will the sky be as beautiful or more so?

On the other hand, moving also means leaving my family behind. They can always come visit, they can always come and see me. But it won’t be often. I won’t see my mom, sister, and brother everyday at work. There won’t be birthday parties once a month (pretty much). Holidays will be hard….and I will miss them terribly.

They have always been there and I have missed the occasional crazy chime-in voice when I say something clever. My husband I do, do it often but it’s different when there are various voices. I’ll miss the moments when I want a mama hug, being able to drive to her house and steal one. I’ll miss seeing my nephews grow up into who they will be.

So much sadness comes up when I think about moving, but also excitement…

So I drew this picture because it’s beautiful to me. And I don’t know if I’m in the house that is colorful or if I’m spying on the house that is beautiful.

Art.

Haven’t had time to write new posts, because of work, school, and planning a wedding. But I have been able to edit photos and make new art, eventually I will paint these. All photos taken by emily2jane and edited by emily2jane.

I’m never not doing art. Some way or another I have art in my life. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Grandma’s house…

I’m back at grandma’s house, and we have been making quilts. She has an abundance of vintage fabric and I gets to use it!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž 

My grandma likes the process of quilts, the choosing of fabrics, the cutting of squares, the organization pattern, the sewing together, but then she doesn’t seem to want to finish. So I’m making tops of the quilts, and putting them in the box and waiting for another day. 

This one is for one of my future kids…I chose the fabrics and thought of a boy, but it could be for either. ๐Ÿ’• Hopefully I get to have baby boys and baby girls!! 

The process of figuring out the pattern
Only half of the quilt sewn together
The fabrics my grandma chose. I told her to choose all her favorites
I figured out the design of how all the squares should fit together.

The squares sewn together into strips. This is only half…๐Ÿ˜ฎ

When this quilt is finished it will be beautiful. My grandma is great at choosing fabrics. 

The next quilt will be yellows, reds, and whites; mostly all of the fabrics will have some type of pattern.

I’ll show pictures when I get them ๐Ÿ˜Š

Beats.

My heart flutters at you.

Must mean I’m not blue.

My heart flutters at fear.

Must mean I need to be clear.

My heart flutters after the cold breeze.

Must mean I’m about to sneeze.

My heart flutters at the baby’s smile.

Must mean I’ll stay and stare awhile.

My heart flutters in the dark.

Must mean I’m dreaming of sharks.

My heart flutters at art.

Must mean I’ve got a creative heart.

Finished window!

I didn’t finish it by Halloween…but it only took another 3 1/2 hrs. I like how it turned out…I will probably have it there for another 6 months…

30 min into the start of the day…


These last two guys to the bulk of my time. About 2 1/2 hrs in.

Total of 3 1/2 hrs.

Maybe to make it festive I’ll paint snow flakes in the side windows!!๐Ÿ˜Ž

Newest Window

My newest window is for my nephew’s 9th birthday present. I told him to choose anything and he choose Pokemon! I have never dabbled in drawing Pokemon and this is new for me. 

At first I didn’t know how I felt about the design, or even just the start of how it looked.

This is about 1 1/2 hours into the painting…

But as I kept adding more and more colors my views changed…

About 30 min later

I wouldn’t ever think to do Pokemon but because the characters are so vibrant it is perfect for me and how I paint! One brush dipped into every color; painting with 20 colors simultaneously…not any one object is a single color.

So many colors!! ๐Ÿ˜Š
How I left the painting today. To get this far it only took about 5 hours.
