The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

~~I have the sweetest husband in the world. About 6 weeks ago I was looking at Ann Kullberg's website and, on a whim, I looked at her workshop schedule. I was very surprised to see that she was teaching a workshop here in Oklahoma. (She lives in Washington.)I wasn't even thinking about the possibility of going. I mentioned it to Dustin because I thought it was amazing that she was coming to a little, bitty town in Oklahoma. He immediately said, "You have to go. I want you to go!" He knows how much I admire her. Well, I started looking into it and working out some details and....I am leaving in the morning! It is a little under 3 hours away and I will be staying 3 days.
~~I'm having such mixed emotions. I am so excited! I'm actually going to meet Ann! And the very thought of 3 days completely devoted to art is almost unimaginable. But I also feel very, very guilty. It's that "Mommy guilt" that is so hard to get rid of. My Mother is going to be taking care of the girls during the day and Dustin will pick them up in the evening. He's so great with them and I know that everything will be just fine, but for some reason I feel like I'm abandoning my job, lol!
~~I truly believe that God brings things into your life and I feel like this couldn't have come at a better time. I've been struggling with some things lately. I'm having some discipline issues with Sierra and feeling very discouraged, frustrated, and inadequate as a Mom. I'm hoping that this can be a time of refreshing and quietness where I can pray about things and get new strength to come back as a better Mom.
