Hi Mom…

It’s so nice when the kids notice us in the stands!  Just made my heart warm to see how much fun my kids had when they were off doing their thing.

This is a child of a friend.  An adorable child… with an adorable smile.  Which I did not capture here.   I have to erase faces like a HUNDRED times before I get it right.  Please look at this comparison (below) from my first sketch of me as a child.


I am unbelievably proud of this first sketch…and it’s really not that good!  Yep, doesn’t take much to keep me happy!

I haven’t sketched in the suits previously (I didn’t feel comfortable with my graphite gradients)….but this time I will Darn It…I will!

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
