Sketches of the Week


 My sketches this week are still cat oriented, but there is definitely a Halloween flavor to some of them, like the one above.



 The above charcoal sketch was done in less than a minute! Sometimes that happens.



 And others times I will spend about an hour, like I did on the one above. Another Halloween one.





 As always, if you want to see more, just follow me on Instagram: @happyasalarks or on my Facebook or Twitter accounts. Bye for now!

What I Wore: Changeable September


Oh, September! How changeable the weather is, and how frustrating it is to plan an outfit! I never know if it will be chilly or warm, humid or dry, windy or calm. It was chilly, but very humid. I had curled my hair to perfection, but as soon as I went out the door to take pix, the curl just died! So I went back inside and curled with a different iron, and lots of hairspray. But by then it was time to get going, so you'll have to take my word for it that my hair looked better. Lol!
Skirt: H&M
Cardi, tights, boots: Target
Purse: thrifted
Choker: borrowed from my daughter
Eye pin: made by me

Pretty Sketchy


I've been in a creative rut for a while, so I thought maybe I would try something different and start sketching and working with different kinds of media. So I joined a drawing challenge on Instagram called #yayeveryday. I found out about it through Toby of I Like Cats. It has been a great way to push myself, and I am really enjoying it. So I'm showing you some of my artwork so far. Some are done in charcoal like the one above and below.




These two, above and below are acrylic and marker. The one above was done on watercolor paper.
And the one below on bristol board.


 Every day of the challenge has a theme, like above was "Kodak moment" and below was "stripes".



I'm having so much fun with this, and I know it will improve my work too. And who knows where it will lead me! If you want to see more, just follow me on Instagram: @happyasalarks or on my Facebook or Twitter accounts. Bye for now!

New Pins


Yay! New lapel pins are now in my shop! They are my spin on a skull, bat and ghost, in my simple and modern style. Of course they would be great for Halloween, but wouldn't they be great any time you want something fun on your jacket or purse? 



Each pin is made of three layers of felt with a butterfly clasp. And I've added some embroidered touches on each. 


As always, you can find them in my Etsy shop! Bye for now!
