Kindred Collection ~ something new is starting soon

Over the last week or so, I haven’t been able to shake the feeling that I NEED to start a new collection of mini paintings… so many collections have emerged over the years, and they are really fun.  But it IS summer, which means more mama-&-boys time and less mama-painting time… I really hope I’m […]

new mother & daughter painting – back to school

It’s Back-To-School time. Bittersweet. Today was the first day of 5th and 7th grade for my boys. Yikes. We had a fantastic summer, packed with togetherness and fun, so this mama has no regrets. But Back-To-School automatically comes with more responsibility. We have to get up earlier to prepare lunches and breakfast. We have MORE […]
