new and news!


The past two weeks at my house have been really amazing.
I have taken a break on my made-to-order states/countries [read why here].


My break has given me a chance to:
- not think about painting when I need to be present with my boys [that sounds so funny, but it's true]
- connect with some other mamas whose boys also had heart conditions
- work on things for friends [that were long overdue]
- not have to rush for a deadline
- not paint at all if I didn't want to
- just enjoy being a mama [it's not all snuggles and smiles, but you know what I mean]
- paint some things I have wanted to for a while

So, go check out what I have been working on!
Oh, and check out Life Rearranged, there is something good going on there.

  2. I love all of your paintings! And I understand needing a break from custom orders. Isn't it nice to not have something you *have* to do?

  3. I'm glad you decided to take some time for you and the boys... and I love your new designs... especially the polka dot texas painting.

  4. So glad you have had the chance to take a break. Sometimes it is just so needed. I've been trying to limit my time on the cpu lately - spending more time in the kitchen and on the floor with Callan. Break more often. Those 945 projects will always be there when you get back. ;)

  5. So happy that your break has been great! Sometimes I think we all need to check out of one area of our life to check in in another area! That time with your boys is priceless:)

  6. I think you are one smart cookie. It's so hard to maintain that balance but you're right - a break is so important for you and your family!
