DOODLE SWAPPING DATE NIGHT ♡

Em just put on an amazing song and we are hanging out in the apartment that she shares with Michael. Michael and my Brad are out on a walk/bike ride/longboard… restless adventure, while Em and I talk blog posts, diy ideas and even some video ideas for a potential YouTube channel. 

We’ve decided to just jump in to our ideas and start doing the things we love. 

Tonight we decided to go through Em’s old art and sketches. We were both really inspired by the creativity that was flowing through our conversation and decided to start writing our ideas down. We were excited enough that the guys joined in and we ended up doodling together. 

We decided to swap papers after a minute of doodling, and decided to call it doodle swapping. Each person would take a minute to DOODLE, then swap paper as each minute goes by and stop when you get your original paper back…

These were our results 

This was a really fun exercise and it was quite therapeutic! Brad is a social service worker and this is an exersice he used in group sessions to build stronger relationships and develop further conversation. It was great and we would like to continue to create pictures like this! 
I hope everyone is a little inspired by our fun filled doodle night! 

***also!!!! Let us know if you think anyone would be interested in prints of our artwork (doodles and other)*** we would love to start showing our art to the world and I think this would be a great place to start! Helpful hints or tips would be great!! Thanks!! ❤

This is my cat Jackery (Roo)! He likes to hunt birds from inside the comforts of his palace.

Photo Challege – The Daily Post

Hey everybody!

I figured this suspensful and potentially dangerous picture would serve well as my first blog post… ever.  But before we talk about my sweet Roo, a little introduction…

My dear friend Emily and I have decided to start a blog about our life. This is something we have both thought about for a long time but have never pursued.

Bicycling and adventuring, finding small, unexplored places is what this blog is inspired from. I am not, by any means, professional or really coordinated when it comes to bike riding, but Emily and our two other halves (insert dreamy, floating, heart bubbles here… giphy-downsized-large (1)), have found such joy, in just these past few weeks of good spring weather, exploring a city I have lived in my entire life. On a bike, there are so many little treasures you can find that you wouldn’t ever notice otherwise.

We will be posting photos of our adventures, but because this is the cycle series, we will be embracing all things life and posting really anything we want to share. We are interested in DIY projects; big and small. We like gardening and painting and journaling, scrapbooking, hiking, and dancing.

We are so excited to start this adventure and hopefully find some good friends along the way, to explore this world with us.

Back to the whole reason I decided to take the leap and finally post something….

ROO!

My sweet Jackaroo is pictured here hunting a bird…. giphy

I picked this picture to represent the Photo Challege prompt, DANGER!

I will explain Jackaroo in more depth in future posts, I’m sure… but here is a picture of my handsome Jack in a less aggressive state:

Thanks for reading! 🙂
