No need to go far to be inspired~ 
took a rainy day off from work, kept my son home w/ me, broke out the paints & brushes and what a day we had together!!
Painted a few more beach rocks, opened a new package of canvases, and worked on a hope chest for my friend's daughter...
And... It's just about done! A few more touches...
What inspires you?

Painting- on everything, but canvas...

I {love} to soothes my soul, relaxes me- it's my escape!
Found a slice of time in this busy weekend to paint this hope chest...
It used to look like this...
Can't wait to share the final transformation!

Then, I found a bit of time to finish our garden rocks...
I have a few more to make: arugula, jalapeƱos, and radishes! Yummy!!

Here's to a productive week!

Ahhhh... My husband is such a huge help! I really needed some shelves for all of my art supplies {my brushes & colored pencils haven't even found their way to the shelves yet}, and my hubby surprised me by putting these up! 
I'm loving my new storage space!

Hello Monday...

Hello Monday, hello Groundhog (who saw his shadow), hello snow day...

Sitting on my couch this morning, watching the snow fly, uploadoing photos (that I'm behind on), and wrapping some Valentine gifts.
How are you spending your Monday?
Stay warm!!

Whipping up some Valentine gifts, during a snowstorm!

We got buried with snow, and my son loved every minute of it!!
I do love that he's an "outdoor kid" - just simply loves being outside. But, when he came in to thaw out, his second favorite thing to do is draw. We worked on these mugs for Valentine gifts...
What do you think? Grama, Nana, and Aunty (Michael's Godmom) are going to receive these with some teas! 
I love to give & create gifts- thank goodness my son does too!

Ringing in the new year...

Happy new year!!
These bags helped my son count down to midnight...each hour from 6pm-midnight, he got to open a bag, and find a prize inside.
The first bag had bottles of rootbeer(a splurge for him to have with dinner). The other bags contained things like modeling clay, sketching pencils, and 2015 glasses, to name a few.
Happy & healthy 2015 to all!!
