Sketchbook Project Sneaky Peek...

Wanted to show y'all my progress on my sketchbook for the Arthouse's Sketchbook Project. Just a sneak peek really, but I like the element of surprise!
My topic is Uncharted Waters and I am doing a lot of whimsical handlettering for the project. My style. Fun. Positive. I have to have it in by Jan. 31st! So I might be drinking a lot of coffee to stay up and get it all finished by the deadline. Oops :( Well, I know I can deliver! Have a lovely lovely weekend everyone!

Doodling with Confidence

So can YOU! 
Pushing myself to do the things I never thought I could do has been one of the most liberating experiences. My procrastination is a bit of a curse and a blessing. *Not encouraging procrastination at ALL :)* On one hand, I bog myself down with so much work to do at the last minute, that I get super-stressed. Not good. On the other hand, I realize how much quality work I can actually get done in such a short amount of time. In doing the latter, I realize that I can really do anything, I just have to DO IT! So I made this little reminder to hang up and remind me that I have and always can push through the hard things.

I'm a wee bit Instagram Obsessed...

I've had the Instagram iPhone app for a while now, but just really started using it here in the past few months. Now I am officially obsessed :) Does anyone else feel the same way? I mean to me it's probably the coolest thing since the iphone. It's the quickest way to share your world with everyone else and find others that inspire you. It's a great way to connect with like-minded people and get instant feedback from other creatives. The above pic is a snapshot of my instagram feed- come follow me- my username is @ellolovey. Are you on Instagram? Post your username so I can follow you!
