A Peek At The Newest Roblins

I’m so excited to add these little guys to the shop this week!  It’s a style/technique that I haven’t done in a while, and it’s the first time I’ve ever done it with Roblins!  So exciting!  Well, I had better get back to laundry, but I will have these in the shop by this evening, so I’ll see you then! ♥rl

{a list of…} a few of my favorite creatives

Today I’m going to share a few of my all-time favorite creatives.  Enjoy!

1. {Tim Burton} – I enjoy his sense of humor and admire his ability to let go and let things be as they are.  The Nightmare Before Christmas and Vincent are what grabbed me at young age.  My brother and I would watch the movie over and over again singing all of the songs.  I’m pretty sure I memorize each of them to this day…
2. {Mark Ryden} – I love how his paintings make you want to look at them for a long time, because there is so much more going on in each painting than you might first think.
3. {Ray Caesar} – The fact that his art is digital and looks like oil paintings is reason enough to enjoy his art.
4. {Lucia Holm} – The lighting in her photography is what captures me every time!
5. {Johnny Depp} – He can transform into any character imaginable, and he does it with grace.  He’s my favorite actor and always will be.
6. {Bosch} – I enjoy the darker thoughts and meaning behind his work.
7. {Jan Van Eyck} – His use of color and reflection is amazing!
8. {Bernini} – He has created sculptures to last a lifetime.  And they hold so much detail!
9. {Shel Silverstein} – Not only do his poems grab onto you, but his simple-lined drawing really tell the story of each poem. I’ll never forget when my mom gave me my very first Shel Silverstein book… Where The Sidewalk Ends… I never got tired of reading it!
10. {Dr. Seuss} – I love the rhymes and colorful imagery.

{a list of…} my current daily reads

Hey friends!  It’s time for me to share another list with you!  I really think you’ll enjoy today’s list because it is full of some lovely blogs.  Don’t believe me?  See for yourself!

These are just a few of my current daily reads (in no particular order), so grab a cup of tea, coffee, lemon water, or whatever floats your boat and stay awhile…

→ {A Beautiful Mess} I’m sure most of you are very familiar with this blog, but let me tell you why it has made this list.  I really enjoy the variety that Elsie and Emma offer.  They have everything from crafts to recipes and so much more.  This is one of my favorite blogs to read while I eats me some breakfast.  It’s a great place to find inspiration.

→ {Little Chief Honeybee} I like to stop by to see what Kaelah is up to.  She’s keeping super busy these days with work, moving into a new home and welcoming a sweet little kiddo into her life.  Never a dull moment.  I also love to see what crazy shoes she’ll wear next!

 → {Sincerley, Kinsey} This is one of my recent finds and I really enjoy Kinsey’s natural and earth-inspired style.  She always finds cute ways to pair different pieces together and her photos are just lovely!

 → {Oh So Lovely Vintage} Since I’m a vintage lover, I naturally enjoy stopping in to see what Erin + Stefanie are up to.  They keep busy with their new shop and their 1956 trailer, Olive!  It’s exciting to see where these ladies are headed.

 → {♥elycia} I enjoy Elycia’s blog because she’s so colorful and playful!  It doesn’t hurt that she loves vintage and kitty cats, too!

→ {Skunkboy Creatures} Katie makes some super sweet little plush animals that are great for all ages.  I like to stop by and see what she’s been making!

 → {Lost Artisan} This is Katie Kukuluka’s new blog.  She shares lost arts and antiques… how exciting is that?!

 → {Kyla Roma} It’s fun to stop by and see what Kyla is up to.  She lives a very busy creative life (like most of us), and she like to share!

 → {Promise Tangeman} Promise’s blog is fun to read because she shares a bit of her daily life, projects, and advice.  She is very sweet and you can feel the warmth through her writing.

 → {100 Layer Cake} I know I’m already married, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t still love to look at pretty wedding imagery.

I hope you enjoyed these as much as I do!  Have a great day! ♥RobbieLee

Pencil-Tip Sculptures

Wow!  I just stumbled upon these and I’m amazed at the level of skill and talent that it would take to create something like this.  Not only is it amazing to me that someone would think of doing this, but it’s also amazing because it’s on such a small scale!  See more over at Bringing Design Home.

My Robblins Series is officially for sale in the shop!  Each 5 in. x 5 in. acrylic on canvas piece is hand-painted by me and they are all my original designs.  I started doodling these little fellas all over the place and then when a friend invited me to hang in one of his art shows earlier this year, I figured that was the perfect opportunity to showcase these.  Now, you can have them too!

mini art show

A friend of ours hosted a mini art show in LoHi Friday night and I was lucky enough to hang a few of the pieces that I’ve been working on.  We had a wonderful time looking at all of the other art works and mingling amongst family and friends.  We had so much support and it was such a  special evening.

These original paintings (by yours truely) and a few others will be for sale in the shop early next month, so be sure to stop by then.
