Motivation Mondays

Gerber Daisies are my favorite-thing-short-list, barely beneath Golden Retrievers and right above Hawaiian Shave Ice. These petals are from a smart boy’s bouquet. The colors were too much for me to waste in a vase of water so I taped them to some paper. I justify this flower torture because they’ll live forever when i make them into a winning design.

This little orange was from a quick marker sketch done on the back of a Vitamin Water receipt from Wholefoods. I’ve been carrying these little baby markers around in my purse. The lack of solid black line can get me thinking in a totally different direction.

My sketches tend to be in monochrome. I try to grab a few markers or colored pencils on my way out the door an make myself use them before I get home again. Color isn’t the easiest for me. Sketching just happens but color takes a lot of thinking time.

How do you incorporate color into your thought process?

  1. aw the petals remind me of something i used to do when I was smaller; I used to draw what i called the “heart of the flower” (because i didn't know the real name, and i still don't). I didn't like how i used to draw the petals, so i used to go to my mom's garden and take some fallen, but still fresh, flowers and petals and glue them on the paper! I wish i could still do that, because that's the only thing i could do. I can't draw humans, but your drawings and designs are really pretty!

Pointer Sisters kinda night🔥 We’ve been ignoring this sweet potato, but he will not be ignored. 🌱☀️🧡🌈
#lifelessons #bloomnomatterwhat Five years ago, I walked into a cozy Brooklyn bar and met the sweetest boy a girl could ever hope to meet. Tonight he made us the sweetest cake to celebrate.❤️ ❤️ I wish today was a Bill Murray kind of Groundhog Day, I’d be in Mexico toasting these love birds. 😭😭😭 #happyanniversary to @happilyeveralvarez & @alvar529 AND happy one year anniversary of New Sister Day to me & @prillie_shakazuzu. We’re so lucky Ashton got us Heather. 😘 High Tea B-Day was at least 1000% better than these pics. 😍💛😭⭐️🍰
#andstillbirthdayweekrageson #letshearitfortheboy #👋☕️ Matt’s Grandfather, passed away peacefully at 93 this week. I am glad for the chance I had to know him. He was great. Matt insanely invited me to a four-generation Father’s Day brunch at his parent’s place when we’d been dating a month and a half. Grandpa Volpe’s first question? He wanted to know my intentions. Here he is at our wedding last year. 💛 He was a true original & he will be so missed. I believe. ❄️✨🎄🎅🏻
#firstsnow #chefwifelife We’ve arrived at my parent’s, where Christmas Spirit is alive & well. What a blessing this ‘Eve has been.🎄✨❄️ #merrychristmas #christmastree #ohchristmastree
