Because I am over the white stuff, being stuck inside and winter over all, I’m in desperate need of color in my life!! The beautiful skies yesterday inspired me to paint something for my baby girls room (due April 6th) I knew I wanted flowers, somewhat abstract & loose. When I started I really didn’t have any idea what I was going to do, only the colors I wanted. This is the fastest painting I have ever produced and there is more I could do but I really loved it and since it is for me proclaimed it finished!

I found these little booties hiding in an old sewing box that I made when I was twelve or so.
My niece Hannah asked me to do these of Easton and Ivory for her Mom for Christmas and since my sister does not have a facebook or probably even remember that I have this blog, I am pretty certain she will not see them…so friends of my sister Christi please do not tell her ;)
No, I really do not do portraits/profiles, etc. they stress me out! I have only ever done two faces in color (pastel) and that is when I was somewhere around 14, not sure why I said yes haha but I am glad I did because once again I got pulled out of my comfort zone!

It’s a girl!! She weighs just 8 ounces at 18 weeks 5 days…an absolute miracle to see such a small human being, perfectly formed, yawning, sucking and moving all over. Just fills my heart with Gods miraculous wonder! Below is a dress I made when I was somewhere around 13 all hand stitched and smocked. Can’t believe I get to use it :) You guys go ahead and make fun of my horrible photoshopping skills, but I wanted a pink background!
