oh how wonderful


I love free things. I try to be frugal, and when I can receive something at no cost [that I can use or enjoy] I gladly accept.


I love art as you can see.


I have discovered a wonderful site

So - go check out this great art project for some FREE ART downloads.  Here are a few of my favorite pics from this month:

Happy Friday
have a wonderful weekend!

Well, to the right and down one.

Who knew that Whooo Blue would make the front page?!?
Thanks again Rachel for making it happen.

a little messy

It can get a little messy around here, especially when:

someone doesn't wear an apron

someone else doesn't wear a bib

and someone keeps growing...

Oh, you want to see my feet? Me too!
[Yes, my belly is very round. 
We went through this with Mr.C too.
When looking down at my belly I appear much rounder :)
I hope to have some truer pictures
of this baby belly soon.]

Maybe I should buy one of these:

you won

Congratulations to Laci, the winner of a mystery prize
from TLE's giveaway,
and to J and K, a Journey, the winner of a $20 shop credit from Gussy's giveaway.

I just heard...

[Mr.C a year ago. Thank goodness he has once again embraced the idea of naps.]

... there are studies that naps can make you smarter.
Finally, someone has the right idea.
Is it bad that I had already committed to a nap when I woke up this morning?

Wishing you an awake Monday with maybe time for a nap, even at your desk :)
Stay tuned for the winners of the giveaways hosted by The Lost Earring and Gussy.

There's a porcupine in my throat...

I think I will make some tea.
Mr.Wonderful is sick :( and Mr.C isn't at the top of his game either.
My throat is hurting...I hope it's just a fluke.

While I enjoy my hot tea why don't you enjoy some of these lovelies...

I ♥ COs

I have said it before, and I will say it again -

I love custom orders.

These paintings were made to coordinate with a customer's nursery bedding.
I can already promise you will be seeing these black birds again.  
I hope to share pictures of the nursery, complete with these paintings, soon. 
Congratulations T;
we wish for a happy and safe delivery!

first weekend...first snow

We had our first weekend in our new home and Mr.C's first snow!

It was super exciting since we haven't had snow in probably 7 years,
and I don't ever remember having this much.

We are still getting settled, staying warm, and enjoying our new home :)

Stay tuned.

Sorry it has been so quiet around here.
We moved! [SURPRISE]

Though our moving truck and trailer didn't quite look like this,
you get the picture :)

We are currently without internet (gasp, I will survive),
but hope to be back up and running by Thursday
with pictures of our new place and all the crazy
happenings involved.
