A sketch of my Monster Man

Wow winter in Idaho is in full swing! We have had a ton of snow, and I love it! Of course I'm not really driving in it all that much. Growing up on the coast in California I never got to experience all 4 seasons, and since we moved here 7 years ago I have fallen in love with each one. But I just love how snow makes everything so beautiful and sparkly.

The only downside to the snow, my boys are completely restless and driving me up the wall! Plus with my 18 month old teething it's not a nice combo. So hopefully the last of those teeth will pop on through and I will have a brake from it for a while.

Well I have continued to be good to myself and have been making sure I have time for my drawing. With my school starting up on Monday hopefully I will continue to do so. I'm only taking a math class this semester so I'm thinking I can do it. Here is my latest drawing:

It is a drawing of my son Quinton, aka Monster Man, Super Quinton and Super Big Brother. Poor kid takes after his momma! Every time he smiles his eyes close. This was for sure a fun one to do as I love looking at his adorable face!!

The best art was after I had shown him his picture he gave me a big hug, told me he loved it, and run into his room for a few minutes. He emerge from his room with a wonderful self portrait and told me I inspired him :) Oh how I love this little boy!!

Finding myself...

Happy New Years everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.

With the new year comes so many New Year's resolutions. I'm not sure how I feel about them. What are your take on NY Resolutions?

Although I'm not sure about it, I have been taking a lot of time reflecting on the last few years of my life. My huge blessings being by boys and my wonderful husband. And all the health issues I have been dealing with and feeling like I have waisted so much time. Almost feeling like I have lost myself in the roll of mom and wife, and I am finding that this is not unique to myself which I have found comfort in.

So, what is it about myself that I feel I have lost? I'm not sure, but I'm hoping to find out.The first step is to reclaim something I love and it's my free hand art. This is the first of hopefully many more to come:

Catch up!!

I have been so crafty lately I had forgotten to post anything!! OOps!

It has been so crazy lately and yet I have been so relaxed and enjoying the summer! Although I get out in that heat and I tend to feel a bit lazy a bit too quickly!

Today I opened a new Etsy Store for my Logos and Graphic Design: ScrollsWorkLogos
An was able to make 4 bannors with logos for etsy shops. They are currently for sale for only $5.00 a set!
here is an example of a set:

Yesterday was a nice, very hot walk to the park for some play time:

I got to work on some flowers and played around with some new patterns. I will be so happy to get some new fabric though as I am getting borded with the same old colors:

 And all of this would not have been possible if I hadn't finished my sister's wedding invitations. Although I loved being able to do them for her, I am not sure I will be willing to do that for anyone ever again.

Hope you all have been enjoying your summer so far as well!!

Coffee Oh how I have missed you!

Yesterday marked 8 days doing the juicing diet and this morning I am happily sipping my yummy coffee! I honestly wish I could have gone longer on the juice but it is more expensive then I was anticipating and some money we were expecting didn't come in. However now that I am more educated on everything I am going to start  again next month and hopefully go a lot longer.

Total weight loss for only 8 days.... 7lbs! and so worth it!

Juicing Day 6

I can not believe the changes in me since day one. Not just in my weight but so many other things as well. My eyes seem so much more clear, my energy level is way up and my head is so clear. My mood has been changing for the better and I feel happy all the time. A lot of people around me are noticing it as well. I hadn't noticed myself but I have had people tell me my skin even looks nicer.

I have now lost 6 lbs and got so excited because the last 2 days I have been wearing clothes I haven't been able to put on in years. It's like I have a whole new wardrobe. So I am looking forward to picking out my outfit for church today.

Hope you are all having a great weekend too!!
