Happy Friday + Randomness

Happy Friday! Wow, the comments from the giveaway are giving me a serious case of wanderlust – so many beautiful, tantalizing descriptions and locales! They are also bringing back visceral memories of all the places I’ve traveled — I was quite the adventuress in my youth.

I inherited the traveling bug from my parents and they’ve carted me and my brothers around the globe several times over; and my mom’s been traveling to Seattle to visit multiple times a year for the last seven years. I painted the above in my illustrated journal when K was about one-and-a-half. Whenever she’s with my mom, she nestles close, watching the amazing creations magically appear out of my mom’s hands. It always makes me a bit weepy in a good way.


K is really into sharks these days….

K: Mommy, I want you to make me shark pajamas.

Me: Sure!

K: OK, so here’s what I want – the bottom will be shorts with lots of sharks wearing jammies. The shirt will have a BIG shark sleeping on the front. And there’s a hood that I can flip on with teeth and presto, SHARK.*

*I think we should mass produce these pajamas – doesn’t it sound awesome?



Next week, I’ll be going full force with KCW. It was so fun to guest post, and I loved all the other guest bloggers too! Can’t wait – I won’t be able to post images of outifts every day, but I’ll try to post as often as I can. And who knows, maybe I’ll be able to pull off at least one shark-themed garment. Will you be joining?

Have a wonderful weekend, friends! The weekly haiku:

It’s Ba-chan’s last day
Side-splitting laughs and good food
We will miss you so

    1. Now that you mention it, I wouldn’t mind those Jammie’s either! Mama and baby shark duo – might be a good Halloween costume 🙂

  1. Sounds like you’ll need to design a shark wearing jammies and have some fabric printed at Spoonflower! Can’t wait to see the pajamas 🙂

    1. Good idea, Stacie! I was thinking of just hand-drawing the sharks, but I’ve been wanting to try out spoonflower for ages! We shall see…

  2. It’s so difficult to say goodbye after a wonderful visit – may your last day together be one of gratitude for the special time you had, and of eager expectation for the next visit!
    Eager to see your KWC creations next week!
