IllustRation fRiday- gaRden

   (just a tiny weed)


Through etsy you meet wonderful people, and a couple of weeks ago I end up writing back and forth with a super friendly gal, who gave me a couple of ideas for my drawings, "just a tiny weed" came out of her head, and it turn out perfect for this week theme. Many thanks Amanda!!!

I have being working in this new drawing for the past weeks in took forever and I'm still not sure with the end result, I think I still have to work on it, maybe the little birdies need to be in different colors?




This past week was a crazy one. I hardly had time for anything, my laundry? oh! the laundry, yes about that... mmh is still piling in the laundry room. so I guess my to do list for this week will be:
  1. laundry
  2. laundry
  3. laundry
  4. and yes you guessed it ... more laundry!!
its just not right the amount of clothes that a family of five can have!!!
Anyway the weather was a roller coaster, Monday thru Wednesday sunny and perfect for afternoons at the park.. The girls had such a gorgeous time!!!



and then thursday rain, rain, rain which I absolutely dig, it makes me feel nostalgic I just LOVE rainy days... and then snow again!!!  Im telling you crazy crazy crazy!!! of course my kids were thrilled kiddi#1 kept shouting CHristmas is coming back !!! Christmas is coming back, pretty disappointed she was, when i told her it was not Father Christmas that wanted to come back but global warming that is making mother earth coo coo!!

Isn't it funny how a little weed can be so strong??

I guess weeds are part of every garden. They can be stubborn little things to pull. I just love your illustration!
