Christmas, why must you go?

The Holidays have flown by. Maybe its because of the crazy work schedules. Or maybe every year I just get older and the child-like imagination I once had is slowly fleeting.

This Christmas was unique in it's own way. We spent Christmas Eve with my Mother and Sister and a dear friend playing games, eating good food and exchanging gifts. (P.S. If you haven't tried the new game "Speak Out", you should. It's hilarious and makes you laugh so hard you drool.)
Kyson bought me a set of essential oils and a diffuser that my mom thought looked like a wooden onion. It lights up inside and makes me feel like a professional yogi/meditator. Maybe one day. I got Kyson an Xbox game he had wanted... JK it was the wrong one, but he played it anyway. :)

Christmas Morning, Kyson and I went out to Ihop for breakfast (weird I know). It was just the two of us,  and with hectic work schedules, and family out of state, It seemed a bit easier.  Tasted good, so I'm not complaining. :P

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! Here are a few of our usual family traditions, let me know what yours are in the comments!

1. Honey Baked Ham
2. Yummy Candles like this one here
3. Candy Cane Cookies

New Drawings Every SUNDAY!!!

I'm starting a new segment on the blog where I will be posting a drawing every Sunday! the hashtag for my instagram @amileekaearts will be #sketchonsunday yay!  Stay tuned. 

Artwork by Amilee

Here is today's #sketchonsunday done in photoshop. This is a light study of @cheyenneconrady. It took about 4 hours time.

What I like about it: I have never done any kind of underexposed colored lighting before only black and white, so that's new! Overall I think it turned out pretty cool. 

What I struggled with: The lips took a minute to get right and the angle wasn't exactly what I wanted. 

Let me know what you think down below ↓↓↓

Lost Cat

Not to long ago my baby girl Zindy, who I have had for 7 is years now, decided she had enough of the cooped up apartment life and slipped out the front door along with Kitten, our new kitty that we couldn't decide on a name for(this is why we call her Kitten).  Thankfully Kitten was caught safely, but it wasn't until after I went to bed that I realized Zindy was missing.  

In realization of her absence, I hurriedly jumped out of bed and ran to go search for her. I could hear her meowing but couldn't see her in the confusing hallways of the apartment complex. Kyson and I spent all night looking for her and eventually gave in to the exhaustion and decided to continue our search later. 
The next week we put up flyers, called shelters, and told the maintenance man at our apartments to keep an eye out for her. Still no one had found her.  About three weeks later I received a call from a vet just south of me, she explained that she may have my kitty. I asked, " is she all white with one blue and one greenish eye? " and she said yes. But it turned out that kitty's microchip didn't match Zindy's. 

After just about giving up on my search, I got a call from a friendly hispanic lady who said she thought she had my missing cat that had scratched on her door one rainy night. Turns out it was Zindy! I ran over to pick her up and the lady wouldn't even take my cash reward. I wish I would have asked for her name just to give her a shout out, but seriously I couldn't thank her enough for keeping her safe.

Now Zindy is home and Kyson calls her a "mexicat" because she keeps scratching on the door to go back to the lady's house...  she is also slowly but surely being reunited with Kitten while they hiss at each other constantly. Yes it's annoying. Yes they keep me up all night. But I couldn't be happier having them both home safe and sound.
