Something new needs a name...

Sending love to all you sweet sisters that left a kind word on my last post. I'm feeling better today. Something happened this week and the whole family is smiling...except the kitty. She is so ticked right now. We got a doggy!!! We've talked about it off and on for awhile but I never thought it would happen. My hubby has a coworker that mentioned they just didn't have time for their dog and were planning to take her to the shelter. Long story short, instead of going to the shelter she was adopted by us. This is so new to me, I've never had a dog before. She is sweetie and she fits right in with us. I'm hoping that she and kitty will be the best of friends eventually.

I need your help to give her a name. If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment. :)

Here's my precious boy with his new best friend. He's so good with her.

I promised I'd share a few art pics on my last post. I haven't had much time for art play lately, a little here and a little there. I've been playing with wax and texture and doodling faces.

I embedded baby's breath in the wax, I think it looks cool.
Here's the same piece with some color

Just a little face I doodled on scrap paper
I named her June

This one is a 3/4 portrait for Jane DesRossiers class
Her head is a little bulbous but I really like her.
I'm thinking about framing her for the house.

Thank you again for the love you share. I'm so thankful for my artsy sisters!
Sending love to you,

You will always find what you're looking for...

I'm trying, really trying to be conscience of what I'm looking for these days.
I'm looking for understanding. I'm looking for faith. I'm looking for kindness, always kindness.
Understanding for why loved ones have been hurt and why friends are suffering with sickness.
Faith to believe that ultimately it's for some greater purpose even when prayers go unanswered. Kindness in myself and others to lift each others spirits.
I know it's true that we will find what we're looking for. I'm choosing to look for the good.
There is so much to be thankful for.

I'm having a tough time right now, but I'll get through it.
I'll be back later in the week with a few art pictures to share.

Sending love to you friends♥

A thankful mother...

Not much to say about our rainy mothers day... My heart was full with my sweet babes around me. I often feel it such a privilege to be a mother to these special souls. I feel the time passing so quickly and want take in every moment and make it last just a little longer.
For all that have been a mother in any way... Thank you for the love you share.
