Someday when Isabelle and Vera are older (Lord willing) and I get all sentimental about them being so big, I will call to mind the moments I am living right now. Moments like when Isabelle insists on having "tummy time" with Vera on the floor. Sweet moments I will forever treasure....I love these two little sisters!

As anyone who loves making art knows...there are times when you are just not feeling it. You have no inspiration, or time, or desire to create anything. THEN....suddenly the weather turns breezy and sunlight is shinning in the windows and all you want to do is paint, or draw or something creative ALL DAY LONG!! I have been bitten by the creative bug again and I am pulling out all my projects!! Most of them are "in the works" and need a few more things done to them. I love this time...I love feeling inspired and excited at what is to come. What is this weather making you want to do??
|encaustic painting/mixed media in the works|
|upcycled journals needing to be bound and cut|
|painting needing to be placed somewhere in the house|
|little illustrations that I do not know what to do with|
|a shelf of books that wet my artistic appetite every time!|

I must confess that sometimes I dress my kids in things I myself wish I was wearing.....kids just always look cute in clothing-unlike adults. Today when I dressed Vera I had a tinge of jealousy....if I were her size we would so be sharing this outfit:)
(side note: Isabelle literally cried this morning because she said Vera looked like a boy in this outfit-once I added the hair bow she was alright though....everyone has their own distinct taste in this house, that is for sure!!)

The past week and a bit of this week we had sickness. Bleh. Like..."carry this bowl with you wherever you go Isabelle" sickness...you know what I mean. Luckily only Isabelle had that type of sickness...but still it does put a damper on plans. So, what is a girl mama to do? Make waffles and snuggly beds duh! And we did...we did.

I love my mom. She is one of my best friends. We talk daily...and see each other (at the least) weekly. She is wise, intelligent, hilarious, creative, beautiful, adventurous, generous, silly, fun-loving, compassionate, godly, awesome at cooking, strong, youthful, and a fabulous mother. I hit the jackpot with her...God knew. It was her birthday this weekend (59 years baby!!) and we all had a lovely time celebrating her. I love her and am so thankful to have her in my each and every day. Here's to you mom and your amazing life!!
