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

Homemade icecream on a hot summer day

We made Heather Bailey's Home-made Strawberry Pretzel Icecream last night. Oh My Goodness!! It's the Best icecream ever! Recipe here.

~~I was going to start this post by apologizing for not having blogged in so long, but then I thought...
You know, it's Summer. And I'm sure everyone understands how crazy busy and fun summer can be. If there was some way to download my thoughts straight to the computer, then I would post so often that you'd probably be tired of me. I'm always thinking of great things to post but then I have those thoughts in the middle of doing dishes, folding laundry, grocery shopping, etc.
~~I seriously over-estimated how much art I thought I could get done during the Summer-time. But then again I know that this time is so short and I want to enjoy it completely. So if you'd like to have a summary of our last few weeks, here it is:

Flip-flops and painted toenails, Splashing and swimming, Cute little brown braids that smell like chlorine, VBS, Freezie pops, Craft days at the library, Grilling in the backyard, Mosquito bites and the smell of sunscreen, Home-made icecream, Garden fresh greenbeans, Laughing with good friends, Picnic lunches, Playing at the park, Cheering for Daddy, Sidewalk chalk, Drippy watermelon, Stickers and construction paper, Lightning bugs,
and crashing into bed tired and happy from the fun of a busy, Summer day.

What, no homemade ice cream for us?!?!?! Sheesh! Now I know where I stand.

Just kidding. You don't need to apologize if you haven';t posted for a while, especially after you completed that last gorgeous piece!! Just glad you're all doing well. *Hugs*

Hi Kasie

You have been up to so many awesome summer time activities. They sound like so much fun. We're in the middle of our winter here, which really is pretty mild, but reading about all of your summer time fun makes me look forward to summer.

That home made ice cream looks so yummy. I have never made ice cream, but am keen to try it out this summer.

Enjoy your summer living my friend.

Lots of love

PS Thank you so much for your well wishes and comments to let me know that you are thinking of us. I really appreciate your sentiments and they put a smile on my face. Thank you my friend.

Thanks for the recipe - it looks very good, I'm going to have to try it!
Sounds like you guys are having loads of fun. Can we come over? (just kidding, you know - we are much too far away for that :)

Okay, the ice cream! I printed off the SAME recipe the other day! I don't know where you found this very talented Heather Bailey friend, but I became introduced to her through Home Companion magazine. I'm glad you tried the ice cream! Now I know it's going to be wonderfully delicious. I'm making ice cream today for my son's birthday....not this recipe but my mother's recipe that is tried and true. I'll try this on later. :) (((HUGS)))
