Sunny day

It's such a sunny day and although I want nothing more than to run around outside... I have to stay in and work.
So I decided that instead of taking a lunch break I was going to take a doodle break!
I used these fun window crayons to draw what I would like to see outside my window all day.


Now I can see birds and clouds and skydivers from right inside my living room. Working indoors just became way more entertaining.
shadows!
and they make such pretty shadows on the wall!

I wish I had a window in my cube farm! This would be fun at home though. I bet my daughter would get a kick out of it!

If only I could draw...

oh my.
i want window crayons.
such a good idea!
i think mine would have cute little birds holding up a banner saying 'stop staring' [i have a pervy neighbour that likes to monitor me] haha (:

colormekatie said...

@ Marina- I'm definitely not good at drawing either. Just try doing some simple shapes!

Are those crayola?
My monkeys would love to play with those- as would I.
We have a perfect back door/window for such creative play-

Even your imaginary clouds are multi-colored! Don't we all wish we can go out and play instead of having to work~

Denise said...

I did not know those crayons existed! I'm definitely going to buy them when I find them! Soooo lovely!

Anna said...

Now I love you even more, Katie :D Maybe I should try this one day? It looks awesome!

Jenni Loo said...

Cute almost-like-stained-glass birds, Katie! What sort of markers are those? The kind you can use to draw on the walls in the bath tub? I've been meaning to invest in a pair of those, it makes showers much more interestin'.

Laura E said...

Very cute!
do you remember when you were little, putting glue all over your pencil box, coloring it, peeling it off and sticking it to the window? It made a stained-glass thing like this too!
Also, I wanted to share a fun discovery I made at the grocery store. I didn't get the idea from you but it reminded me of some of your street art so i linked it to you anyway.
check it out if you would like! :)

Katie, I'm not a creative person at all, but I now find your blog the first thing I read everyday - well ahead of my boring, professional, business goof. Your pages are just so happy, vibrant and refreshing, you bring a smile to my face and make me wonder what I could do with my kids. Thankyou!
