The 52 Project – A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2013.

Inspired by Che & Fidel.

We were finally able to have our first “family” walk of the season, since it has suddenly become so nice out and all of us were home and not working. It was 77 and beautiful. I wish it were to stay like this but apparently there is a chance for snow later this week…booo. I am not looking forward to that, but at least the chances of it sticking around is not good. It is so frustrating that it can go from 80 to freezing in a matter of a day here. But that is one thing I do love, is the variety and the constant surprise you get from the weather here. I just do not enjoy the cold or the messy slush from the snow, also the salt sticking to all of my shoes and pants. My black shoes got some serous salt damage this year and I have no idea how to fix them. I’m a bit annoyed that the protective spray I used didn’t really protect them. Ugh!



I love that she is not too old to have her daddy help her tie her shoes still.

The 52 Project – A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2013.

We are trying to teach our daughter about wants vs. needs. She has been begging for this hat for a few months now and we finally bought it for her. She never wants to take it off, which makes me feel good about the purchase. Now that it is -17 degrees out here in Minnesnowtah, literally, I guess technically the hat is a need. Even though she does have others, but daddy picked them out and they are just not as “cool”. I’m glad this is not at the bottom of the closet yet… I really do not like telling her no, on wants, I want to give her everything she wants. But I know that she will just expect that everything she wants is given to her. Hopefully we are also getting across the message to be grateful for what she does have. We are already in the stage of “so and so” has this I want it too. We are trying to get her to think if she really needs the item she wants. Hopefully we can teacher her to spend money wisely, even if someone else is paying for it. Any one have any advise? She does look pretty cute in this hat though.

Lately… Drawing


My goal for December is to draw more. I want to become better at drawing. Here are the drawings I did over the weekend, I posted them on my instgram (amycnelson). Not so realistic, but at least I’m drawing again. It is so easy just to sit at the computer and make something without taking the time to draw it first. Usually I always sketch first but they are terrible, I do it just to get the idea down on paper before I forget, because I have a horrible memory. Some of these I will end up inking and putting up in my SHOP. Get ready for loads of drawings…

Bag Full of Pumpkins


We were on one of our usual trips to Target and my daughter begged me for a bag full of pumpkins. It is so hard to say no to her, so we came home with a bag full of pumpkins and of course I had to take some pictures. This is of course my favorite time of year. I need to take my camera out more it’s so pretty outside. Have any of you taken any lovely pictures. If so link below!
