It’s no secret that there was a hurricane this past weekend on the east coast. While other people were buying a lifetime supply of water, I also stocked up on crayons and window shades to keep us occupied. Ryan installed window blinds in every window, and I created this art below to keep our minds off what was going on around us. (The crayon art inspiration originally seen here.) At first I didn’t know if I loved it, but the shocking colors are growing on me. I’m not sure if this is it’s permanent home, but I like having art in the house that I created.
Now that’s not to say we weren’t prepared for Irene. Ryan created a “survival kit” and was taking his job of being the man of the house very seriously. The area where we live in New Jersey did not get hit too hard – other than a few downed trees and some water in neighbors basements. Luckily we just moved in recently and don’t have too much stored in the basement and whatever was actually down there was propped up to prevent damage. I’m just so thankful that our friends families are safe!
A little fun fact about me: Everyone always says how my Volkswagen smells like crayons. Do you know anyone’s car that smells like crayola? :)
