I’m a sucker for art
books. If I see a good one, I have to have it. This one caught my eye. Cute
I still dream about my
own art studio. Lots of natural light, lots of table space, shelves to fill
with supplies and art books…
A girl can dream, right?
Isn't it funny how parents
sometimes wish their kids would do what they weren't able to do? Hence the art books I purchase for Sienna as well. J
I keep wishing she'll have some kind of artistic career. An artist, illustrate kids’ books, photographer…
But so far her choices have
been either a paleontologist or a vet. J
You gotta let them do what their heart tells them to do. But until she actually makes that choice, I'll keep buying these books. J And if it doesn't lead into an artistic career - so be it. At least we had ton of fun creating together.
was asked by my church’s women’s organization to come up with a winter garland
for the women to make. This is the result.
I don’t know if they’ll like it but
I do. J
It was cloudy today so I couldn't get good
pictures of it. Looks better in real life. J
I saw this picture in a
magazine and added the text in honor of our 21st wedding
anniversary. I can’t believe we've been married for so long. Well, actually I
can. JWe've done so much in those 21 years.
I love being married! People say so many
negative things about marriage but I think it’s the best thing in the world! ♥
I got 21 roses (red +
orange) plus Gerber daisies. I had to put them in two vases as they wouldn't fit in one. I guess I need to buy a bigger vase. J
I love checking out kids’ art work in the hallway when I pick up Sienna from school. Here the kids
had to do a self portrait and then write about their features. They had
obviously talked about descriptive language. J

"My name is Axel. I am a
fun art idea for kids: trace hands and feet, add the body and make a self portrait.
