It is late for me to be up. But I still am. I have been playing with a bunch of art supplies making pretty messes in my kitchen. You know, I really should not be allowed to purchase "artsy" or "crafting" magazines anymore. First, I have tons of them and look through them frequently to get my creative mojo going. Second, I usually end up having to go on a "supply" shopping spree to fill a sudden need I didn't have before I picked up said magazine. And last, I then spend the time that I need for sleep creating a huge mess in my kitchen. I'll be taking pictures in the morning, well maybe by the afternoon, of my latest creative endevor.
I did a class sample last night for a one-stroke painted frame. Love making sunflowers with the one-stroke painting technique. They always turn out well for me. I'm thinking I need to make some notecards or stationary with the sunflowers. Sunflowers and daisies. Those two flowers together always make me think of my mom. Missing her. She would have loved all the painting I'm getting in at the moment. She would have really liked the sunflower frame.
DS's preschool open house was this afternoon. My baby, now a preschooler. He's going to ride the bus to school starting Monday. Goodness, just thinking about it makes me all teary eyed. The baby is going to school now. At moments he is still such a mumma's boy and at others he is so independant. DD was an independant spirit early on, only a few month's where she was clingy, around 18 months to 2 years. DS has been clingy a little longer but is growing out of it, kinda miss it. But part of me loves the "I can do this myself" spirit of both my kids. Well, up to a point. Sometimes independence gets out of control and I have to reel them back in. Isn't parenting fun?
