Home Again - and Grateful

I am happy to report that we are home again - safe and sound! Though 22,000 acres have burned all around us, our neighborhood of 70 homes, with the exception of one, was spared. It was amazing to drive in late last night after the evacuation notice was lifted and see that not only were we spared, it…

Oh yes, I am a huge fan of Pinterest, no doubt. LOTs of great inspiration to be found. But when I find myself doing more pinning than creating, that's when I have to step back a bit. Somebody has to create that next awesome 5 ingredient casserole recipe, or try that fabulous art journaling technique…

She's Always our Biggest Fan!

Well with school back in full swing and Friday night football starting again, I thought it would be a good time to debut a fresh new version of "Sports Mom" in my CafePress shop. I wanted to honor those Moms who tirelessly (and loudly) cheer their kids on at every game (in any weather), taxi the tea…

Drawing to the Music

I often play music when I draw (or paint or write or do housework) - do you? Or do you do better with it quiet? Well today, I have Michael Buble on my player and I do believe I can draw better while he sings :o). Now if I could just stop getting up and dancing every other song, I might actually acco…

Savor the Summer!

It's the weekend - what'cha got planned?
Will you play in the water, 
or play in the sand...?
Or lie in meadow, gazing at the sky
pretending you're a butterfly, flying up high...?

Will you open a paint box
and make a glorious mess...?
Or color outside the lines
without one ounce of stress...?

Will you scale…

Don't Worry...Pray!

Many thanks friends for your prayers as the Dyer Mill wildfire burned a few miles north of our home near Plantersville, TX. I am happy to report that we had a glorious, slow moving, soaking rain yesterday (first one in months) which helped the fire situation immensely. Though…

The Heat is On!

Welcome Summer (I think....)

Well, I don't want to sound too chipper at the official arrival of Summer, because here in Texas, the heat is already on, and has been for quite a while now. We are in a severe drought and high 90s/100 degree temperatures show little sign of moderating any time soon. Oh, …
