Just for Fun: Celine Dion 2017

celine-dion-illustration, celine-dion-2017, celine-dion-billboard

I must admit that I didn't watch the Billboard Music Awards last night. I did, however, catch some footage of Celine Dion in her fabulous dress, and I just had to make an illustration of her wearing it.

I cannot believe that it's been 20 years since "My Heart Will Go On" came out. Boy, do I feel old. I remember making my friend Mollie listen to this song over and over and over at her house so many times that her mom called her into another room and asked her to stop playing it. That poor woman probably thought she was in a torture cell.

Anyway, here's Celine in all her majestic glory. Happy Monday!

Swimsuit Doodles

Well, hello. Happy Mother's Day! If you've been following my Instagram, you've been seeing that I'm working on a quilt. It's a big one. This is the biggest quilt I've made yet. I think it will be a bit larger than queen sized when I'm finished. But, since I figured those photos wouldn't be too exciting to you ladies, I'm showing you a little doodle I made during an exploratory trip to the Magistrate's Court in Florence, South Carolina. It's on a stenography pad, but I still like it.

Aaaand just in case you haven't been seeing my quilting Instagrams, Here are a couple of those photos as well.

Here, Miranda is trying to hinder my progress. Like a cat, she feels the need to sit right on top of whatever I'm working on. But she's so cute, I don't mind.

Here we have a photo of some of my hand quilting. I actually made the "print" on this fabric with alcohol ink. There are a couple of squares like that on this quilt. I feel like they give the quilt a little whimsy, some personality, and a very personal touch.

Stay tuned on my Instagram for more progress and updates!

Atlanta Spinstering: Rap Snacks

In a gas station west of atlanta, not too far from Six Flags, I found the above pictured potato chips. I just thought you should know about Rap Snacks.

I've googled them, and apparently they're owned by Lil' Romeo. It looks like their most recent addition is Fetty Wap's Honey JalapeƱo. I can't say I've tried these yet. They looked vaguely bootleg to me, but now that I know they're real, maybe I will.

To see all the Rap Snacks Flavors, visit their website here.

If you missed it last time, my little sketchbook is still for sale on Etsy! Click here to check it out.

Happy Monday! (or should I say Rappy Monday??? No? Ok.)

Buy My Sketchbook!

I've been meaning to post the little sketchbook on my Etsy for some time, and this morning, I finally did!

I didn't want to post it until I'd also made a video of all the pages in the book. Yesterday, I made that happen, so I've embedded it here just for you!

Now, if you'd like to purchase the little sketchbook, then you can buy it on my Etsy by clicking this link. 

Happy Monday!
