a park

just a few moments
in the park.
we walked together
by the creek.
we collected some stones
to keep in our pockets -
and we threw some into the water.
we chatted.
he made some new friends -
and played on the playground.
while i sat with the dog -
and sketched.

a girl in the rain

another painting.
my favorite part 
is the collaged papers,
and the depth
of the layered background.
saige helped me 
with the color choices.
i am loving 
this painting thing.

a girls night

last weekend
a bunch of my
best girls.
went out to paint ceramics.
i had done this before,
but never came away
with anything useful.
so, i wanted to go -
to be with the girls,
and to spend some
time with saige.
but, wasn't super excited.
i'm glad i went -
i found a great sushi plate to paint.
and saige did a bowl.
i figured out a pattern to do -
right away.
(no creative block)
even more exciting -
that saige seemed to really enjoy herself.
(no creative block for her either) -
and she did an amazing job -
and everyone said so.
it is a wonderful thing to see -
her confidence building.
here is our creations before firing....


and after.

a gift

devin gave flowers
to saige & i.
what a sweet boy.
it's too bad
they don't last forever.
i wish that photos
could capture the smell.

a bunch of love

as always -
i've been busy making -
and other than
being with my family,
it's when i am happiest.
this week i've been making
my annual valentines.
this year i've done
a 'bloom true' painted style.
i am loving layering and slathering the paint,
and adding paper collage too.

spending time with saige
is so special too -
even if it's just a peek of a moment.
we crafted some heart tee's together -
flouresent pink is where it's at.

also, i have bought myself 
a little present -
salted caramel chocolates.
you just can't go wrong 
with that combination.
