Funky Leaves and This Week's Events


Good morning!  I forgot to ask how your Easter was....how was it?  We ended up not getting together with family, as a few members have been pretty sick.  But we turned our energy towards our overgrown, weedy yard!  It was a lovely day...nice and sunshiney....we cleared away a lot of weeds, old leaves, etc, and Lovin' man and I planted a teeny tiny herb/veggie garden on the sunny side of our house.  (we pretty much have ONE sunny spot in our yard! Ha!)  It felt so good to dig in the dirt and make some progress.  Still much to do though.


These are some silly little leaves that I doodled not too long ago...thought they might make you smile.  I'm currently obsessed with drawing tiny details and filling them in with markers.


Hey...if you are looking for something inspiring to do this week...here are a couple of local events happening.....

The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art is hosting its FINAL WEEK of the Wizards of Pop exhibit.  Get in there, people!  It's crazy cool!  I'm going to try to stop by one more time....it's fabulous, complex pop up art, and it's amazing as they show it from beginning stages to the final product.


And....for the fashionista in you....this Saturday evening is the Recycle in Style Fashion Show!  Goodwill of the Heartland and the Linn County Solid Waste Agency are hosting this 3rd annual event featuring fashions made from thrift store materials.  Super cool!  Super fun!  Seating is limited, so you'll need to RSVP at the link listed.   



Well, off for another day of painting!!!  Have a fabulous day!!!!  Too doo loo!!!

I love the leaves! Going outside today to work on the yard and figure out where to plant all the seeds I bought yesterday at Menard's.
