Currently.

Currently, I am....


attempting a-day-in-the-life self portrait....me computer-side in the kitchen.   
This really feels authentic.  It is where I like to type away, in my kitchen, the hub of the household.  And this is what I often look like in the winter with my hat on  a "not doing my hair kind of day".
For the Paper Mama self photo challenge
Obsessing over…
All things vintage....I am so into vintage right now that I can't stop thrifting!   The thrift store in town now knows me....I am one of those crazy regular customers.   I am really excited that my friend, Marcie and I, have established our little business "Serendipity Seven".   SS will be all things  creatively repurposed and vintage...and awesome.  Seriously, how awesome are these mugs below!!!  If I can part with them they are soon to be listed on Etsy...

Working on…
I am currently taking an e-course with artist Flora Bowley!  That is 5 weeks of inspiration from an amazing artist.  While I would rather take her workshop in person, right now this is the most I can do.  I have found myself painting intuitively often, but this class will be taking it to a new and different place, which I am really geeked about!
I am in the beginning stages of a new painting....so exciting to see where it will all lead~
Thinking about…

My balance- how to achieve a better sense of balance as an artist, as a mother, wife, friend.   How to achieve physical balanceI am certain of one thing....this is a never ending challenge!
Anticipating…
travel!   My hubby and  I are surprising the kiddos with a trip to Disney!  I can't wait for the surprise....and then to see them all soaking up the magic!   I also have a yoga retreat with one of my best friends coming up in March!   Seriously so excited!!!
Listening to…
My little ones playing.  At the moment I don't hear any cries or screams....all is well.
Eating…
I am eating in points right now as I just put myself on Weight Watchers.  It was necessary to get control of how the scale has been slowly creeping up since my back surgery.  Must get back on track!!!
I just finished a Special K protein shake.....that is 5 points.
Wishing…
Wishing I could live closer all the people I love.   My family is in MN which is a five hour and difficult with how busy life is here.   The sweet babies above are my neice and nephew, only 11 months between them.  Their Auntie misses them and need baby snuggles.   And many of my dearest friends too far away....wishing we could just meet for coffee.


Currently.  That is me today.  Thanks for going me!
