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

Yummy Good Fun

~~We had a fun weekend. Saturday I made 30 cinnamon rolls: the yummy, delicious, made-from-scratch kind of cinnamon rolls. They aren't difficult but they do take quite a bit of time, so I don't make them that often. But it was my turn to bring snacks to Sunday School and I just had a craving for them. I found this recipe a while back Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls Clone Recipe and its the only one I use.
~~I braided my baby girl's hair for the first time.
It looked so cute but I didn't know if I liked it. I finished it, looked at her, and said "Oh my goodness! Where did my baby girl go?" Both the girls are getting too big too fast. Savannah is starting to say sentences and she cracks me up all the time. The other day she ran in to me with her arms out for a hug. Of course I hugged her right back. I had only just wrapped my arms around her when I heard this serious little baby voice say "Let go me." She can be a hoot.
~~This is our last week before school starts. I have a feeling that it's going to fly by. This week we'll all try to start getting into more of a school-time routine with bedtimes and such. But I do want to fit in some fun activities. Dustin called just a bit ago and he went to Wal-Mart on his lunch break. He found a slip-and-slide on clearance so I think we'll play around with that this evening. I'm so curious to see what the girls think of it. I haven't played on one of those since I was a little girl so I'm excited.
~~I haven't given up on the Storytime piece. I'm actually hoping to get some work in on it this week. We'll see. I've got a lot to try and fit in. I know that once we all get into a routine, it will be easier for me to get artwork done, so I'm not going to be too hard on myself this week.
~~Well, Monday is half over, so I've got to get moving. Make it a great one everybody!!
