Another bird was begging to be drawn, so I did what I do and drew her.
Brought in some fun elements here, like the IKEA furniture in the background and the pink/green patterned pillows.
Kate really isn’t a kid anymore, she just thinks she is. As an adult she has to stay connected to the real world, hence the cell phone.
My absolute favorite part of the picture! This Peace Bird! I opted against white.
Kate-the-Kid-Again-Bird….She’s rediscovered a gift, and it is this. Seeing herself as she did when she was 10 years old. When she was excited by life and wanted to make something of herself, do something, create something. It’s nice to have uncovered this eager attitude! It is a gift and she’s not sure who to thank.
I bet a lot of people can relate to this feeling that Kate has. When she’s done the work, been responsible, cared for others. Now she’s finally letting herself play again…..cuz it is allowed, you know. No matter what your age!
I’ve been asked a few times where I get my bird personalities. Every now and then I'm lucky enough to snag it from my journal. Love it when that happens.
Have a good Day you guys! Go out and play….no matter what your age! Haha

- By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
