I’m dying to have a pet. My single girl NYC lifestyle won’t ever allow for one.

  • Whenever I spend too much time at the dog park at Madison Square I try to convince myself I could do it.

    The plan usually goes like this:
    I could get them on the train in the morning and drop them off at doggy day care (something I normally roll my eyes and spit at) near job-job. Then pick them up at lunch and take them for a run in the park. On my coffee break we could go for another run. Rush hour is no place for a dog. We could walk home to Brooklyn from the Flatiron District every day. Totally doable, right? I already walk home once or twice a week in the spring and fall.”

Haha. Pure puppy insanity.

I get home to my adorable pea-sized apartment in the wee hours and realize I must have been drinking crazy juice. I might be impatient for a pet, but I can only imagine how impatient they’d be with my schedule and space.
Thanks for your comments. I’m going to watercolor this one.
Check She Sure is Sketchy later this week for a revision!

  1. I adore this sketch and am glad I got to see it before you watercolour it. If you think you might want a puppy, contact me immediately; I may be able to save you several thousand dollars and several hours with a psychiatrist.

  2. Cats are definitely the way to go in an apartment! A slightly older cat is better than a kitten, and two slightly older cats -who get along with each other! – are better than anything. (Love having cats, but won't make the kitten mistake again!)

  3. What a wonderful blog you have. Your header is just amazing and fun! Please feel free to join us our at WatercolorWednesdays. Check the side bar as we are looking for new and fresh blood.. I mean people hee he he hee. All the instruction are on the side bar. Looking forward to having you as member.

  4. love your sketchiness.

    yeah, get a cat. But get a kitten! I combust at their cuteness. if you get when then they're small you can train them to love you and they will imprint on you which is weird yet cool.

  5. “if you get when then they're small”? What on earth? who can decipher what i'm saying, ever.

    ahem. “If you get THEM WHEN they're small…”

Crawling home on all fours after celebrating at the epic Puppy Par-tay my brother and sister-in-law put on for my dog nephew, Milo tonight. It was everything and more, complete with a bone-shaped swimming pool. #dreamtheimpawssibledream 🤘#livewithnoregrets We otter go exploring more rivers. 😍
#lifeachievementunlocked A Mama said there’d be days like this😍
Totally alone in the Natural History Museum’s Hall of Mammals for hours! Hashtag Blessed. It’s 1 AM. Do you know where your mini gummi bears are? 
#fairgame #latenightinthestudio #goodbyeoctober We’re celebrating today. I opened my eyes to Matt  crowing, “Amber! Wake up. They made it!” We have been following the inspiring pilgrimage of my mom @incredimombo & sister @prilliegirl_shakazoozoo via text & @instagram for weeks. They set out to trek across Spain a month and a half ago. This morning they walked their 500th mile and crossed into Santiago. Having read a lot about their journey before they set out to do it, I felt concerned at their determination. The Camino is not easy. It requires walking 10-20 miles a day 7 days a week. You have to carry everything you need on your back. The toll is physical, mental & spiritual. Many prepared and experienced hikers do not make it to the end of the journey the first or second time they attempt it. ☀️ So we’re dreaming impossible dreams and celebrating too. It would seem today is a good day to set out to do the impossible. When we moved to Utah I was sure I’d been too spoiled by my childhood on the ocean and my twenties in Brooklyn, to ever find anything to love in the desert. I fully planned on dying of boredom. I don’t know what I’ll do when we outgrow this little Wasatch apartment of ours! Watching the Sun kiss the mountains goodnight from our tiny balcony is beyond description. This picture doesn’t begin to do it justice. Home again. I'm leaving Adobe Max and Las Vegas prouder of human beings than I have been since kindergarten. This week, I danced my brains out while Mark Ronson dj'd, had Johnathan Adler speak directly to my soul, learned things I've been trying to understand on my own, met so many of my idols and took my art to a level I've been striving for. I marveled at the depth of creativity in the world, (& of course, I saw Britney, b**tch.) Vegas is so beautiful and bright & strong.
