♥ I heart art ♥ Needle & Thread

Sometimes you can make great art with just a needle and thread.
I heart all of these.

{Be sure to check out each artists' shop for more of their work.}

"P" is for...

- pounds
- precious
- perspective
- perfect



Wednesday marked one month since Jack's arrival.
He is growing strong weighing in at 10 pounds, 4 ounces.

We also received these baby booties from a dear friend - so precious.

Yesterday I had some things put into perspective...more to come on that later.

Hope you have a perfect weekend.

For more preciousness...

summer lovin'

It's almost time to say goodbye to summer...


 






...I will miss the summer (minus the heat), but I am really looking forward to fall.

add some music to your day


I'm a pretty big music person.
listen. dance. sing.
As of late, like 18 months, my music has consisted of 
lullabies and "lalala, Elmo's world."
I found the words to one of the billion songs on Sesame Street 
in my head yesterday afternoon for the trillionth time,
and I decided I had enough.
I needed my music back.
So, I added some music to my day and got a shot of Mr.C rockin' the headphones.

Ryan Adams [NOT Bryan]
Def Leppard (yes you read right)
Bird and the Bee (if you love Hall & Oates - wow)

The playlist goes on and on and on...
Who's in your playlist/cd/cassette/8-track/vinyl?

Hope you pump up the jams and have a great weekend [I had to-sorry].

c a n d i d

Let's get candid...







1. While baby [and brother - see video monitor in the background] sleep
Mommy sleeps takes pictures.
2. Child [art] prodigy decides to do a taste test [note: child was supervised by two adults, mother was actually standing right beside him].
3. Brotherly love.
4. Daddy & Mommy are both showered and alert at the same time 
and of course baby screams for photo op.
5. Baby boxing gloves.
6. Three's company.
7. Charlie face.
8. Sand is a good source of fiber, right?

stand still {shop talk}

With the arrival of J-man (formerly known as BabyJ)
my painting is at a stand still.
I know taking a break is totally understandable and very necessary,
but I do look forward to picking my paint brush up again.

I have been taking time to get some inspiration though:



I can't wait to share what I've come up with.
Do you have any suggestions?

I think this crazy week calls for a Date Night {in}.
We'll spend it here watching this.


Hope you have a funny Friday.

♥ I heart art ♥ Specs

I got my first pair of eyeglasses in the 4th grade.
They were pink - oh yeah.
I moved onto gold before trading them in for contacts.
 I'm back in love with my glasses and on any given day you'll find me with my specs.








Hope you enjoy each artists' work and visit their shop.

t o d a y



okay, so yesterday was the day.
mr. wonderful returned to work [sad eyes].
it's me and the two man crew.

i didn't eat ice cream.
i didn't take a nap [which I think new all moms, heck-any tired adult, should be allowed].
i survived, now if I can get through today.
i think i can.
