promise of spring


i hope the view out your window is as lovely as mine is today. every new green leaf is shimmering with raindrops, everything seems to have burst into bloom all at once. we usually get a long winter, a few moments of spring, then the summer weather hits with a dry heat that reminds me i live in a desert. it is so incredibly beautiful.

today i can sit and watch the raindrops running down my window blurring the clouds and trees outside while i try to remember how to breath without thinking about it.

yesterday i sent off my spring secrets book to Kari. i'm so excited for this project! it took a whole day to finish putting my book together but i am very happy with it. can't even imagine how exciting it will be to have it back with four new pages of art from dear friends!


the nest on the right hand side is a stamp i carved then added shredded book paper to the nest. the egg book opens to share what my nest is made out of and things i keep in my nest.

this garden is the sign in page for each artist to make a flower and tuck in the pocket after they work in my book.

the tiny painted canves is only 2 inches square. so fun i finally found a place for it. i hand painted details around the frame and on the wallpaper background.

oh, and here is a bit of a secret. . . . .four sweet kittens were born at our house over the weekend. i tried to line them all up for a photo and they kept wiggling all over each other. pet photography is insane, remember my baby chick photo shoot!
