Awesome artist highlight

I was doing my weekly search for interesting and inspiring artists. The site's I would like to highlight this week are Sarah Jane Studios, and Bloesem Kids.
Sarah is a super talented illustrator. I love the gentleness of her art. You can purchase her works for a very reasonable price on her itsy site. It would be a perfect addition to any little girls room. Her blog is worth taking a look at.
Bloesem Kids has tons of unique items for your little tot. If you don't have a little tot, these items would be an excellent choice for a friends baby shower, or a child's birthday.

Sloan and Popeye

There is nothing sweeter to watch as a mother, than the love between two siblings. Zoe and Aris are so blessed to have Sloan as a big sister.

Mom....for your curious little space unit

Template, blow this up to appropriate size so you can add photos of kids face. Remember to make one of Curious George to unify your theme.

For the bulletin board.

The outside of your door.

Template for the spaceship.

A little late night digging

This is before all the "extras" are added. Then I put them in a frame. All are 8"x 10".

Dean started digging this at around 5:45 in the evening. He finally called it a night a little before 1 am.

I worked on the JDRF thank you project I have been putting off for a few months now. How terrible am I?

I had fun working on this project. I talked to my sister the whole time. She is such an awesome person. She is working so hard at school, and is so focused on her future and what she wants to do with her talents. All of her hard work has paid off. If she keeps it up, she can get a full ride to school. I love her strength and perseverance, I know it's hard for her to be so far away from all that is familiar and everything she loves. I can't wait until she can visit. We will have the best hen party ever.

Dean worked on the sewer line while I was having fun talking and working on art. This house is so old, so when you get one thing fixed and working right, another thing needs to be repaired. This is just one of those things that we have been watching and dealing with over the last few months with short term fixes. It can't be put off any longer. He will have to finish up the rest of the project tomorrow.
