New Toy

Time to order some film! Any recs?

Girl Crush: Kate Winslet

Kate has a new look (top, left) and I love it! Always have loved the characters she has portrayed and she always seems like a classy lady.

Read Me!

Some of the books that have been piling up on my bookshelf. Must read soon. I’m halfway done with The Easter Parade. I love it.

30 Day Drawing Challenge: Day 30!

The 30 Day Drawing Challenge is officially over! It was definitely more difficult than I thought it would be. Life, obviously, gets in the way of drawing/scanning/blogging but I gained so much from the challenge. I learned that you all are seriously talented (even if you don’t consider yourself an artist or work in a creative job environment). I also really got into the groove of pulling out my sketchbook and drawing daily. It’s a habit that I just have to force myself into. Anyways, I hope you all enjoyed and feel free to take on the challenge if you didn’t this month! My banner was to play on the fact that I technically didn’t do all 30 days:

Here’s Steven‘s congratulatory drawing:

And Carley‘s!

 

Happy Birthday Desh!

It’s Desh’s 2nd birthday today! We celebrated by buying him a new frisbee, a raw hide bone and turning on our air conditioning. A long walk is yet to come! I think he’s gotten cuter with age but I’m biased.

30 Day Drawing Challenge: Days 26-29

Day 26: Something You’re Scared Of

Randi contributed and said…needles!

Day 27: Someone you love! I already drew Adam before I thought I’d draw Desh, my dog. He’s way cuter in real life.

Randi drew his best friend!

Day 28: Draw something you’d like. I’d like to travel.

Day 29: A place you want to go. I said I’d want to go BACK TO LONDON!

Carley said she’d love to go to Paris!

That’s the past few days! Tomorrow is THE LAST DAY OF THE CHALLENGE! Email me at hi@allisonlehman.com anytime before noon tomorrow with your “congrats banner” for participating or finishing the challenge. Feel free to include why you didn’t finish, what you gained from it, or anything you learned throughout the process. Hope your weekends are going well :)

 

30 Day Drawing Challenge: #FAIL

Attention blog readers:

I totally dropped the ball with this 30 Day Drawing Challenge. I haven’t posted May 26, 27, OR 28th. I’ll be posting a compilation post tomorrow (er…today?) at 3pm EST with drawings from the past few days. SO, if you have any drawings or want to “catch up,” from the days you missed, submit them to me (email me at hi@allisonlehman.com) by 12pm EST, Sunday May 29th! I have a few from you sitting in my email inbox and I’ll be adding my own too.

Hope you’re all having a lovely, extended weekend!

I love the Pelican Hotel’s website. I think I’d love staying there even more.

30 Day Drawing Challenge: Day 25

Today’s challenge (although a bit late) was to draw scenery! This is what I mostly see all day…

Steven drew his view out of the airplane! How nice.

Randi drew something nice and natural!

Tomorrow’s challenge is to draw something you DON’T like. If you want yours included, email me at hi@allisonlehman.com by 7AM EST tomorrow morning.
