annoyed ...

I'm so annoyed with blogger right now I could spit.
Please bear with me while I try to recreate the look that the template is supposed to be giving me. Ugh.

art camp - week three

We had so much fun today being messy, messy, messy!
We explored collage and mixed-media.
We discovered printing with bubble wrap and jar/tupperware lids.

This spells F-U-N. I noticed a couple of the kids come out of their shell. It's so fun and rewarding to watch them get inspired.
I even have some battle wounds in the form of red paint splattered on my green kitchen walls. Ah ... to have an art studio space someday where splatters won't matter. A small price to pay in the kitchen today ... it's so worth it to see these guys beam with pride and a sense of pure joy.

Today turned out better than I'd hoped.
I love these little artists.
They inspire me.

love the beach

Beach days are the best days of summer so far. Add some friends and it's a kid paradise!!

It's the best kind of tired at the end of a beach day.

wanted ...

... employment that doesn't interfere with my ability to be the involved, available (emotionally and physically), at home mom that I want to be; and doesn't interfere with my role as wife and business partner to my husband; and allows me to work in a creative environment with lots of really nice people so I don't dread the times that I have to work; and the pay is worth the time that I'm away from my family; and it eventually could evolve into something that includes benefits?

Does this job exist anywhere outside of my mind?

About Me

I'm a creative spirit who, only recently, has discovered that I must do something creative every day. I love my three children. I love my hard working husband. I love experiencing God's goodness in everyday things and my deepest desire is to grow more in love with Him every day. I love worship, I love God's Word, and I love expressing the gifts he's given me through art and in my home. I am passionate about life and all things creative!
