rainy sunday

Rainy days tend to cast a spell over me. They put me in a mood that craves to be holding a paintbrush, a drawing pad, or just relaxing. I'm ashamed to admit that most days I wave the feeling away, and go blog surfing, but today I didn't.
Today, after coming home from church and celebrating mother's day with donuts, I curled up on the couch with my little brother Mark beside me and watched a ridiculous amount of Brady Bunch episodes (yes, Brady Bunch). It felt so good just to relax and not have a feeling of needing to get homework done for the next day or study for a test.
After my brain was fried enough, I asked my sister if she felt like painting. She eagerly said yes and I proceeded to get out the paint supplies, along with other miscellaneous crafty items.


They also make me want to write letters. Yes, I am one of those people who still gets excited when I get things in the mail or send letters to people. See that little duck painting? Yep, I like to decorate my stationary a little :) I just need more people to write to. Do you guys have any pen-pals?
And I also finally made my own little sketchbook (all credit for the idea goes to this lovely site) I can't wait to use it!
What activities occupy your rainy days?

p.s. I would just like to say happy mother's day to all the fabufull (fabulous+wonderful) moms out there. Thanks for everything you have given and taught us :)

p.p.s. Sorry for the unexpected change in design guys, I just felt like the other header was too busy. I love this one and plan to keep it for quite a while! Also, don't forget to enter my photo challenge and win a "fabuful" prize!


  1. Love the pictures and your duck is so cute!! I love writing letters, but sadly I don't have very many people to write to!
    I love painting as well. It's so much fun to see where my brush goes! :) And being lazy and relaxing is something I like to do on weekends as well, of course. ;) haha
