Back to to the old drawing board . . . literally.

As much as I'm ashamed to admit it, I've been kind of . . . well . . . bored these past couple of weeks. I needed something that I could do non-stop for hours and never get bored, something that I love to do . . . I tried to think of it, but I just couldn't figure it out . . .

Then it hit me. I can't believe I didn't think of it sooner.

Drawing. Hel-lo . . . Drawing is my life. I can do it non-stop for hours, and never get bored, and it's something that I love to do. So, hanging on to the slimmest of chances that someone who reads this blog cares even the tiniest bit about what I've been doing all day, here it is:

So many of my very favorite things all collected into one piece of art: drawing, playing the piano, and little children. Like it?


  1. Like it? Nicole, I love it! Seriously, I want a copy of it so I can frame it and put it up in my room. You are so incredibly talented.

    Oh, and I know what you mean about people caring about what you post. Hello, is there anybody out there who reads these things? That is one of the reasons I had to comment, because when there isn't a comment on one of my posts, I tend to think that nobody cares! And maybe they don't, and that's fine. My blog is for me to read someday and remember my youth.

    Anyway, please excuse my little rant right there. Great drawing, and seriously, how much can I pay you to have a copy? :)


  2. Amazing!! That is so gorgeous. Can you draw one for me?? Haha. so good!

  3. @Brooke: Of course you can have a copy! For free, my dear. :) And I totally understand about people commenting on my posts, and I'm so sorry I haven't been commenting on yours! For some reason, I haven't been able to sign into my Google account so I can leave comments. :(

    @Jillian: Thank you! Haha, I'd be honored to draw one for you. I LOVE your Random Ramblings blog, by the way! :)

  4. "So, hanging on to the slimmest of chances that someone who reads this blog cares even the tiniest bit about what I've been doing all day, here it is..."
    Here's an equation for you:
    Chance that someone cares=Not slim
    That's MY kind of math. And also why Mr. G taught math this year :)
    Seriously though, very nice drawing.

  5. Haha, thanks, Mrs. Cook! (Yeah, I don't think I can get used to calling you "Jenny" yet . . . ) I like your math a lot better than the pile of summer math that's sitting untouched under my bed :s

  6. I know what you mean Nicole. It is hard to be motivated to do the math without you, Jasmine, Taylor, and Kyleigh sitting around the table with me and "helping" (read laughing) me. :)I've started chapter 3, but I'm not being as "on top of it" as I hoped. But, now I don't feel so bad. I thought I would be the only one with trouble being motivated! Maybe we'll have to work together on it sometime......... :)

  7. @Brooke: Haha, tell me about it. I keep meaning to ask you if we can get together and just do math all day (I know-- sounds awful, right?. I repeated the parts in chapter 4 that I needed to, like LCM and I started chapter 5. I just need more motivation . . .

  8. You don't have to call me by my first name, of course, but you may...all of my summer camp students at Catlin will. That's just how they roll.
    Truth be told, though, I still have a hard time calling some of my former teachers by their first names, even though I'm definitely a grown up. It just seems weird, as if somehow I have attained their exalted level!
    You and Brooke can intersperse math with Jane Austen movies. That should balance out nicely.

  9. Hey Nicole. I love your artwork. You do very inspiration paintings and drawings. Have you started your piano yet? Make sure you put some pictures up, okay?

  10. Is that a real offer?? Because I would love you to draw something book/reading related for me haha :D

  11. @Jillian: I think it would be fun! Haha, if you're serious, I guess I am! I'm a crazy HP fan, so I have a few drawings Harry Potter related . . . How about if I have time, I'll draw something reading-related and post if for you! :)


You want to leave a comment? I love comments! I ADORE comments! Oh, and random person, I also adore YOU because you want to leave a comment on my blog. Have an excellent day.
