Picture Sunday-- Apparently, I cannot even.

Wherein Treskie is absolutely exhausted.

Literally me every night: "I am very tired, Lord. It's after midnight, and I would like to sleep."

Literally me every morning: *Peers at clock* "It is six o'clock and I didn't get to sleep until super late last night. I am very tired, Lord."

Literally me every day: "I am very, tired, Lord."

And that is my story.

Sorry this is late, I got distracted yesterday, so Picture Saturday got delayed. (Amy and I were working on something for the channel....)

I'm also relistening to all my musicals and getting emotional over them, because basically, music makes me feel things.

1.) Did I relisten to Phantom? Why, yes. Yes I did.

2.) I'm singing I Dreamed a Dream for one of my final songs in singing class. (AW YISS, SO FUN.) But the first time I printed the sheet music, the printer spazzed out, so I had these half-printed musical sheets that I felt bad wasting. So I drew this during the ten-minute break at class.

Yeah, her face is a little squashy, shush.

3.) Which led me to go, "Oooooooooooooh." And so I doodled across the un-transposed sheet music for my other solo.

4.) Attempted to draw Hale and failed exceptionally.

5.) I started this one and decided to finish it later, because I was tired, and could not even.

6.) Ehem. I'm feeling the urge to draw Christine a lot these days, because basically, her hair is the best thing since sliced bread, and POTO is the king of all musicals. SO... Here, have an inked in sketch of her going, "TRY TO FORGIVE, TEACH ME TO LIIIIIVE, GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO TRYYY!" Because reasons.

Anyway, yeah. I'm planning on drawing more next time, but I can't promise, since it's going to be a really long week at the flower shop. I'd like to draw some actual pictures of the Phantom, since it's his musical, after all, and I barely pay attention to him. (I'm more like, "RAOUL AND CHRISTINE ARE GOLDEN LITTLE GUMMY BEARS OF CUTENESS" #OTP.)

I'd like to color several of the black and whites that I've posted lately....

And I want to draw Christina Grimmie, because her death hit me really hard and I want to pay tribute to her somehow.

Until then, here, have a video that made me cry like a baby.

Yours, ever so sincerely,

Ordinary Life Adventures: Life since March

Is anyone else baffled by the fact that it's June?


I've been promising a life update post for ages now, and since this week was a bust, drawing wise, I'm going to take this time to edit pictures and actually keep that promise.

Let's see, since my last update...

I did some more visiting with my lovely sister and her family. Ugh, their kids are the cutest.

"Quick, make a funny face!"

Because when your niece wants to try on all the sunglasses, you let her, cause it's freaking adorable....

Sometimes the best things in the world are the silly little moments that aren't that special, but turn out to be the ones that mean the most, like.... when Jessica, my li'l Mono-Mono, wore her birthday crown upside down and helped make her own birthday cake....

Or when she was so delighted by her birthday balloon that she kept bouncing it up-and-down and giggling.

Or just.... all of these.

I know what you're thinking, and her nose was just itchy.

I drove all the way up to California from Montana with them, and it was great fun, despite almost sliding into a police officer and getting back pains from sitting too long. (Also, tickle fights with the driver is monstrous fun because the passenger (me), automatically has the advantage, and I love that.)

Maria and Tim are best buds and took loads of opportunities to show it.

My brother got married to the best of girls, and it's the first wedding I've been to where I actually had fun. I danced (twice!), and the crowd of us that sat at the same table were all a blast to be around, and it was kind of golden, that day.

Chloe and Sammi Toink were absolutely enchanted by baby Dominic and have decided that they want a baby brother ASAP.

Sometimes we teach our nieces and nephews a few things that could come in  handy later.

And other times we walk to the beach and frolic...

Sometimes we go out for sushi, and marvel at how much we like it.

Anyone else go to Civil War and marvel* at how well they portrayed both sides of the argument? Even if I'd wanted to, I couldn't have chosen a side, (and since I was aggressively Team Get Along, it was doubly hard.) and right now, I JUST WANT EVERYONE TO BE BROS AGAIN.

*See what I did there?

We went on a hike up by Fallen Leaf Lake and it was glorious. (Apart from a few... hiccups. *Looks accusingly at someone*)


Toink picked me flowers and it was the sweetest thing of ever.

It's been a tricky couple of weeks for me. We've got some stuff going on that's kind of overwhelming and I wasn't up to drawing. Which is unfortunate, because I have lots of inspiration for it, I'm just tired and unmotivated.

I've been getting in some sick hours at work, which is good, cause I'm kinda feeling broke-ish.

We went shooting again, which is most agreeable after a bad week, and I'm seriously considering buying a glock 19, cause it's fits my tiny hands, and it's good for concealed carry, and I want that. lol.

Sometimes the only thing that makes me feel better is listening to Il Volo sing.

Other times it's ice cream.

I'm going to be 21 in like two weeks, and this delights me. 

I feel like I was going to say something super poetic, or super funny, but I can't remember which, so here's a picture of Amy and I after successfully setting up a wedding.

Question Time!
What's the best thing that's happened to you since March?
Do you like sushi?
Do you normally have fun at weddings?
How are you even doing?

Love you all!

Picture Saturday-- June {1}

It's been a rough week.

But I went thrift store and found the most adorable tiny shot glasses that look like miniature snifters and I love them with so much love.

So... there's that.

Also, there was jamba juice, which always makes stuff better.

But anyway, I hear people were excited about the Avengers fanart so....

1.) LA DE DAH, NO PAIN, ZERO PAIN, ABSOLUTELY NO FEELS. (Also, gonna color this sucker.)

2.) Also there was some happiness in regards to Phantom art...

3.) I've been listening to this song called Numb by Linkin Park, and I was just like, "That would make a good picture." So I'm experimenting drawing other emotions besides happiness and what my sister refers to as the "digustingly-in-love" look. So I dunno, what even is this emotion?

4.) That led to, "WHAT ABOUT JUST SAD?" (Apparently, I like EMPHASIZING certain words to MAKE POINTS.)

5.) Oh yeah, Bucky killed me in Civil War.

6.) Caaaaaaaaaaaap. I'm a little disappointed in how the color turned out, I wanted it to be darker, and not so red-white-and-blue but whatever.

7.) OH I re-read the Heist Society books, cause basically, Ally Carter is gold, and wanted to fanart so much. Ugh. So Gabrielle.

I have the cutest idea for Kat and Hale, with a picture of them, and the quote, "Wouldn't it be the perfect crime, if I stole your heart, and you stole mine?" and I JUST WANNA DRAW IT SO MUCH.

Also, Gabrielle and Simon should be a thing.

Question time!
Favorite colored?
Black and white?
Best fanart?
Overall favorite?
Anyone else read Heist Society?

Okay that's it ladies and gents.
Treskie out.
