Playing with Procreate
Playing around in the @procreateapp again, trying to learn various brushes and techniques. I still prefer using my copic markers, but this is growing on me. I love using it to clean up my drawing too.  It’s great for erasing mistakes 😉

Practice
Mondays have a bad rap, but mine has been pretty great today. We are having all new windows installed in our front porch 🙌🏻 (see my insta-story for a sneak peak). No more cold drafts in the winter or sweltering greenhouse heat in the summer. Once they are in, I can work on the walls and the floor.  Anyone who knows me, knows I love a good DIY home project.   In addition to that, I spent the morning practicing drawing faces from @joannabaker ’s  new tutorial. I love her tutorials, she really breaks it down and makes it easy to follow and execute. Hope you made it thru Monday! It’s only gets better from here.

Craft brew
The craft brew scene in Minneapolis is pretty amazing. With so many places to try, it can become overwhelming. I’m not a hoppy beer gal. I much prefer stouts or ales. @dangerousman makes my favorite chocolate milk stout, I recently tried a stout from @wildmindales that was fantastic, and @utepilsbrewing makes the best kolsch. But what else is good? Tell me your favorite tap rooms are in the Twin Cities. I’m making my list for summer!

Happily Grey
The weekend is finally here. It’s Cinco de Mayo, .75 degrees out, and the sun is shining strong. Make the most of today and the weekend. What’s on your agenda? It’s the annual Bryn Mawr Garage sale and I’ll be hitting that up, then a possible stop at @utepilsbrewing for their Utefest, and finally wrapping up the evening with dinner and a bonfire @ldtoft and @ajansen7 ’s house. Sounds like a fabulous day to me. You know what else is fabulous? @happilygrey sporting these @elleryland pants at Paris fashion week this spring. So good!

Jacquemus jumpsuit
Can we talk about jumpsuits for a minute? Love them. Seriously. Madly. And this one from @jacquemus is to die for. ❤️Gah! Styling with inspo from @blaireadiebee and belting it with the ever so popular @gucci belt. Do you love rocking a good jumpsuit or are they just not your thing? Do tell!

Pastel plaid
Happy humpday! Today started a bit hectic with having to bring my pup into the vet unexpectedly. He was snipped last week and being the active little guy he is, he isn’t healing right and we had a minor set back. Now we have to keep his cone on him for 5 more days. Ugh.  But things are looking up… I’m getting my hair done and who doesn’t love new hair?!? 💇🏻💁🏻

Urban Sketching
Today’s sunny weather has me all ready for summer. Give me all the blooming plants, shrubs, and flowers. Throw in a few ornamental trees. Add some twinkling lights overhead and you’ve got a recipe for happiness. When you have winters like we do, you cherish the warmer days and make the most of them.
