My Husband is an Artist

Apr 21, 2012

Today has been lovely. I feel like I say that a lot. It's the truth though. Pretty much any day that my hubby doesn't have to work is lovely. I get to spend time with him and since we're still newlyweds I still like him. Haha I kid, I'll like him always! Aaron is honestly my favorite person in the world. He's the only person who can make me want to kick him and laugh all in one sentence. Today was very uneventful and wonderful at the same time. I had (yet another) migraine so the day was incredibly slow. We left the house for only a few hours and spent the rest of the time playing games, watching movies, and making art. 

Speaking of, have I ever mentioned that my husband is an incredibly talented artist? I don't think I have. I envy his drawing skills! I've always wanted to be able to draw. Aaron hasn't drawn much lately so last weekend I bought him new pencils and paper to encourage his creativity. I told him he could draw me as an anime character (he really likes drawing them for some reason) so the first thing he did was give me giant breasts. Once I made him shrink them a bit I really liked the picture! It's still a work in progress so don't tell him I shared, but here's a little sneak peak:

I'm sure you're all jealous and wish you could be anime characters. Aaron says this picture is only half finished and I'm excited to see the end product! I, on the other hand, make art like this:

I love to make mixed media art and fun collages. And take interesting (and quirky) pictures. Aaron says he could never do what I do but personally I'd rather have the drawing skill. Maybe our future children will be lucky enough to inherit his talents.

Also, since it's getting close to the end of April I'm looking to switch up my sponsor swaps- or continue those I already have! If you want to swap buttons for May please email me. 
I'd love to be sponsor swap friends!


  1. What IS it with men and the boobs?! lol He is very talented though. So are you! It's great that you're both so artistically inclined and can appreciate what the other one does. Steve and I... well, we are good at.... cleaning? Oh, and drinking. Ha :)

  2. That is awesome! I am super jealous of anyone who can draw people like that! I can only draw cartoonish figures but Anime people are still too real for my brain to process and put on paper

  3. I am super uber to the max jealous of his drawing skills. I've always wanted to be artistic. I'm creative, but not artistic. Totally not the same thing. I would love to do a sponsor swap with you! Does this count as my email? lol I already have your button on my blog. :)

  4. I love that you made him shrink the chest! I would have been like "make 'em bigger! make 'em bigger!". Well, that's what happens when you don't get boobs til your 18. Love you!

  5. i LOVE mixed media stuff! i save every button that falls off our clothes in hopes of using them or anything like that in something ;)

  6. Heheh I like your anime self! He definitely is very talented at drawing! :)

    I also love the collages, I like making stuff like that too, but it never seems to turn out how I think it will. :P

  7. He is very talented! The drawing is wonderful! I always wished I was artistic but that definitely is not a talent I have ever had! How cool that both of your are artistic! Lucky for your kids :)

    I'd love to continue the button swap if you have room, but I can let other people have a turn too :)

  8. Hi Sue! I found you on the blog hop & I am your newest follower! My boyfriend is artistic also, and we compliment styles... I look forward to following your adventures....

  9. I love making collages as well :) and the ones you made look great! I kind of feel inspired to make one right now!
