Such a crazy life!

You know just when I didn't think I could cram anything else into my schedule...
I thought things were going to lighten up when hockey and basketball season came to an end but no luck. We had all of the St. Patricks day festivities (daughter is an Irish dancer) then my son broke his foot. UGH. Well his foot is about better and he is starting track and soccer and this year he is a soccer ref. I know he's only 14 but can I just give him the keys? Kelsie is about to be in her talent show at school. 2 separate show performances with her dance school as well as her yearly recital then we have a bout 5 competitions for her to dance in... On top of that I am increasing the number of classes I am teaching at my studio as well as finishing up the summer schedule. I know I'm ranting but I just needed to vent. On a good note I got to go to the flower show twice and got some really beautiful shots. I'll put a new one on here. Let me know what you think.
Happy Tuesday

My New Vintage Cardset

These are my brand new Vintage cardsets.
This first set is my Buddy Jim set 1

For quite some time I knew that I wanted to make greeting cards from vintage images. I just couldn't find the right book. Well, I was in my moms attic helping her clean it out and here it was. I fell in love with it. I think the images are so prescious.
I'm hoping to get some sales so we'll see.

Not sure why the process from idea to fruition takes me so long, maybe because I have an ocean of ideas in my head and could use some ritalin to focus on just one.

Well have a great day
Life is good!

Happy St. Patricks Day

Top o the mornin to ya!

St. Patricks day is very happily celebrated in our home. It's mine and my husbands 17th anniversary. My daughter is an Irish dancer so the whole week is filled with performances, parades and parties! I'm sure to be exhausted by the end of it. But until then I will celebrate with tons of green.
Have a great day!
This pic is from my back deck. It is my lucky clovers print. I had some other flowers in the box the year before but last year I neglected my gardens completely. Including the deck boxes. Well I am happy I did because this happy little family of clovers took up residence. I love them and I hope they come back this year. This print is for sale in my etsy shop

UGH! Why can't the kids just pick up!!!!!

Ok, today I am just here to rant. Not talk oh so sweetly about my wonderful artwork that you should buy just rant!!!! All the kids need to do is pick up a sock or two and make their beds. Is that too much to ask? I certainly don't think so but when the dogs knock over the trash do they stop and pick it up? I'm sure you can guess tha answer NO! They actually stepped over it. UGH!!!! My kids get to do everything and want for nothing but they still can't help out. I think I'm going to channel my inner drill sargeant and let them have it.
Thanks for letting me vent and happy Tuesday.
