The extra chair

This is what I saw when I came out to my lil' studio last night. My adorable 11yr old boy wants to make art with me side by side. The sight of those two chairs seriously melted my heart, I love that kid. :)

Studio progress...

Major progress going on over here! I started cleaning out the garage on Friday night to make room for a big table I picked up at Costco. I placed an ad on Craigslist offering a dresser, a bookshelf, and two fish tanks and by Saturday afternoon they were gone. I LOVE getting rid of things wed don't need anymore. I'm moving all my art supplies from my kitchen hutch out to the garage which will soon become my own little studio! I had fun playing around with my paints out there tonight after I got the kiddos into bed.
I usually try to draw something before I add paint to it but tonight I just took the paintbrush to the paper and went for it.
Here's a peek at my new table covered in an artsy mess. I'm working on a new piece that I will share when it's all done.

And here I am...Happy, happy, happy to have my own little Jenny space to get paint on my hands and create. I love art. ♥

Feeling thankful...

I've spent the day cleaning and organizing my kids bedrooms, cleaning out closets, and taking outgrown clothes to goodwill. School starts on Wednesday and I wanted to set the house in order before the busyness of the school year ensues. As I was sorting through things I found some old letters my husband wrote to me years ago. As I read through them I felt the love wash over me. I couldn't believe I'd forgotten about these treasured words and I'm just feeling all lovey dovey now. I'm thankful for him and for our life together.

I took this pic with my phone the other night as we were falling asleep

These are my sweet grandparents. They were crazy about each other and were a wonderful example to me of real love.

We've had our ups and downs like any couple but their are definitely more ups.
Thank you to all who commented on my last post. Your thoughts mean so much to me. I'm thankful to you my dear blog friends.
