Whoops. There I go again forgetting to blog here. Things have been just a bit busy around though. Daniel was out of state last week so I was full time single mom for a bit - we had some fun girl time, lots of down time, and spent quite a few meals with my mom and sister.
Daniel got back Sunday and we were SO glad to have him back. 8 days without your husband and Daddy is way too long! We've been having lots of family time since he returned. Monday was our 3rd anniversary so we got to celebrate with a fun date night out!
And, today is Ellie's 1st birthday!
I can't even tell you how fast that year was! Gosh, she is SUCH a joy and I'm so happy to celebrate her today! We are having a simple dinner with just family (JUST family is 25 people. HA!). Hope you all are doing well.

Been painting quite a bit this weekend (while watching Felicity on netflix - hello 1998)! I'm thinking a lot about new prints and need to just decide what to print pretty soon. Also, I
am sort of can't stop thinking about busting out the Christmas music and making some holiday art (too soon?)... We shall see.

My friend had her sweet baby boy back in August and I painted this for his room. Here it is all set up above their adorable orange chair. The room is a mix of blues, browns, oranges and greens along with a small animal theme. I am really pleased to see that the painting works so well in the space!
What are you up to this weekend? My little brother is coming home so we are having a BBQ tomorrow and probably some pool time (since it's still 70 degrees outside the kiddos still go for it)! I'm hoping to make some new paintings and get some organizing done as well. Happy weekend!

I'm exited to be part of a local arts and crafts show in November! The was began with a discussion about how the world seems to have lost the need for the simplicity of art.
I'm looking forward to sharing the space with lots of other talented artists, crafters, photographers and musicians. I've been thinking a lot about new paintings, new prints, fun displays and of course, buying some super fun things from other vendors! It should be a really fun time so please come join! You can see more details on the website or facebook page.

This painting is the centerpiece of an adorable gallery wall at my friend Holly's house! I believe it is in the family room, and while you can't see the entire space, you can understand the look they are going for (and that a gallery wall like this could work in any room, really)! I love the mix of colors, frames, photos and art - it has a very eclectic feel.

Things have been a little quite around here... but not really much more than usual since posting often is obviously not my strong point. Ha. Anyway, we had to make a last minute trip to Ohio last week because Daniel's step grandpa passed away. It was a sad reason to get out there, but we had a great time with family and dear friends. We even celebrated Ellie's first birthday with them a little early.
We are getting settled back in at home and I've got a few things to share soon -- some new art and details about an arts and crafts show I will be a part of soon. I'm also very excited that it is October and I'm looking forward to the fall (even if it's warmer than summertime around here).
