Long weekend plans?

Let's go!  Waving goodbye to summer with one last trip.
Happy Labor Day weekend!

I'm happy to say my thumb is beginning to green.  
After years of killing countless succulents- 
I think I finally got this down.  Improving makes me happy! (painting does too)

Weekend window shopping.

I always want the thing on the top shelve way back in the corner.
I like finding treasures!

Your Best Chapter Yet!

Turning the pages & moving forward.

This collage piece was super fun to make.
I made it right around my birthday which was the end of July.
(felt kind of therapeutic with the hole aging thing)

I added some of my personal interest to each
one of the books. (take a look)

Batty about a boy!

Today my kind, sweet, generous, son turned 11.
(I know, said like a mother.)

We're celebrating with a homemade card & cake tonight.
And- a party at the arcade with all his friends this weekend.

*I cherish every moment with this kid!

Back to School

Do you know any kiddos about to go back to school?
I remember dropping my son off to his first day of kindergarten years ago
& having a hard time letting go of his little hand.

Now it's much easier & gone all day feels OKAY.
(for both of us but, in a good way)

Weekend FUN!

Waking up to the weekend is like being first in line to a carnival packed
with all your favorites. 
Happy weekend- Have a great one!

Yes, this was influenced by the wonderful Mary Blair.
(& my love for bright color)

Flowers... (forever)

I don't think I'll ever get tired of painting flowers.
Particularly, on dark grounds.
Looks like a midnight garden.

What's cooking?

A little sketch of a kitchen.
This doesn't look much like my kitchen.
(except for the yellow cabinets & the Frenchie)

This little heart of mine....

I'm gonna let it SHINE!
I sang this all the time as a child.
It was a song the music teacher had us sing in kindergarden.
I remember thinking the words felt bold, and brave and it was
fun to belt out with conviction.

Alas, I recently found out "heart" is actually "light" in the original song written
by Harry Dixon Loes around 1920.

I'm still learning something new everyday!
