Day 22 – A picture of something you wish you were better at


I wish I could draw better. I come from a family of artists, my grandfather, my mother, my father, my sisters, my brother–I do okay, but I wish it came as easy to me as it does to them. It’s on my list of things to work on.

I used these pictures, because I’m in love with this artist right now. You can also find her Etsy shop at Pinkytoast on Etsy. I’m not sure why I love her stuff so much. Is it the big eyes? The dark twisted cutesiness appealing to my dormant gothy girl? Idk, but I love it. My sketchbook is currently filled with my sad attempts to recreate her fantabulousness.
Really sad attempts. 🙁

I’m just Kris, and this is just my blog. Kristina Marina is a pet name my dad gave to me when I was young, and since he’s one of my favorite people in this whole big world, I hold it near and dear to my heart. Who is Kris? Kris is a real person, going through real life with real problems and real trials, holding onto a real faith, making real decisions and sometimes real mistakes, looking all the while for real answers, often wondering why she’s so really blessed when she really doesn’t deserve it. She doesn’t sugar coat things, but also knows that God is bigger than anything this big bad world has to offer, and that, my friends, is the key to keeping it real. In short, Kris is just a real person loving a real God. Kris makes no promises of content– this site may be introspective, irrelevant, highly personal, funny, or even a bit ridiculous. She may wax poetic, share a slice of her world with you (or a whole darn plate). She may try to be philosophical, and while she may prove to be insightful, she never expects to be profound. She will always try to be encouraging, even if it’s just for herself. Life is too short to wallow in the negative, so while things may get rough (they usually do at some point), she will always try to see the sunshine through the rain, the forest for the trees, the rainbow at the end of the storm or whatever other idiom gives you the warm fuzzies. Kris isn’t really sure what identity this new blog will take, but that’s the fun part. And no, Kris does not usually speak of herself in the third person.
