i’ve been working hard on and off over the past few months trying to paint the alphabet for a line of small canvas giclees.
i personally love, as most of you know, the letter A. (my A wall)
so i was thinking, there must be lots of people out there like me that love letters…
hence the line of monograms i’m wanting to produce.
i’m halfway through the alphabet now and i’m starting to have major self-doubts-
is anyone going to buy these?
am i wasting my time?
should i be spending my energy elsewhere?
am i the only one who loves/collects letters?
here’s a little logo hand lettering artwork thingy that i’ve been working on.
and how about you?
been doing something fun?
ever participated in an open studios tour?
and btw, never ran yesterday… bad girl!
but did finally give in and shower. it had been several days and my husband was ready to kill me!
the beginnings of chalkboard art.
and don’t judge my bunny… he’s got some issues!
off to get some painting done now.
and maybe a short run.
hello April, hello spring!

we gift you with this month’s equally cheerful desktop wallpaper!

my heart’s been filled with some heavy stuff these past few weeks!
truthfully, more than i want to mention.
but the two list toppers are:
we had to put our sweet dog Parker of 13 years down.
it was, and still is- heartbreaking.
and the other- is that my dear friend Tammy left for Russia.
she was diagnosed with PPMS (primary progressive MS) in 2010.
since her diagnosis, she’s already been experiencing glimpses of the many unpleasantries PPMS has to offer:
trouble walking, bladder control, strength, etc.
she’s only 40, two kids & a husband. she’s a giver. always helping everyone. constantly on the move.
she’s been led to apply for the clinical trials - HSCT (Hematopoietic Stem Cell Therapy), in hopes of being cured.
the one she’s accepted is in Moscow, Russia and she is on her way there now.
she’ll be in the hospital for 4 1/2 weeks.
please. please- keep her in your prayers.
this is a very expensive exploration that she and her husband are having to pay for out of their own pocket,
if you feel inclined to donate you can find more info. here.
this weekend involved many things.
some really sad, that i don’t want to go into right now.
and some happy.
it was our turn to host our dinner group.
there are 4 of us couples and we rotate houses.
we try for once a month but realistically it ends up being quarterly by the time our schedules all line up.
and let me just say… all the other ladies are AMAZING cooks.
that’s how i choose my friends! shhhh.
that being said, when it comes to our turn i always majorly stress out.
i want to bless them the way that they’ve blessed me.
hence the perfect reminder in the curly girl design card!
and it did hold true. of course.
i have a habit of wanting to shoot for the moon and then being disappointed in myself when things don’t end up perfect.
any of you do that?
in the end, it’s really about the conversation & the people.
which both, as always, were wonderful!
are you in a dinner group?
do you do themes? games? conversation starters?
if you’re not in one, maybe it’s time to start one…
