Happy Birthday Bella-Bo! Happy graduation Malli-Mo!



Kella wanted to take hershey bars to school today to give her class as a treat.
This is the wrapper I put on them :)



Mallori graduates from preschool today too (busy day),
so we made Hershey bars for her to take too.
For the last day of school, I drew her teacher with
the kids in her class, printed it on photo paper, and framed
it for her. Sometimes I am too goovy for my own self...lol.


Both turned out very cute, and the girls are SO excited :D

Amarah's Butterfly :)




This little butterfly is for my sweet neice Amarah :)

I am trying out a different format to see if they work any better
for you. Please give me any feedback, such as, works the same, better,
or not at all. I'd really appreciate it :)
May your day be filled with rainbows and butterflies!

Someone in Utah loves you!

This post requires a little bit of explaining I think. It actually is not what I had scheduled for today. Yesterday I saw a web address in the back of a car window, and the inspiration to draw something went through my head... by the time I got home I had forgotten!( I really cannot be held responsible for anything important. ) When I got to work last night I saw a commercial for St. Jude's children's hospital, and I had the idea run through my head, and once again I filed it away in my head for later. Then I saw the music video "journey on" by Ty Herndon, and thought to myself.... I think there's something I need to do. (I really shouldn't get after my kids for not doing what they are told to do the first time, I'm afraid they must have inherited it from me.)
So.... here it is. I've never seen any images of a child who through some reason has lost their hair. Hopefully this post will be the answer for someone looking for an image to use for that reason. I have a hard time with little ones being afflicted with disease... as a parent it is your worst nightmare... the helplessness... please know that I really do love people, and in my own little way am trying to share that with you.

Here's the link I saw, the website is so fabulous:) Maybe we can kick a little over to them from here!

I really do love this sentiment... Life really is a journey...

A Pirate party :)

My 6 year old has been planning her birthday party for
a year now...lol. This is the theme she came up with! (It may just come out
in a party pack) So far everything is working up
SUPER cute. The image is drawn from a photo of her in her
Halloween costume. I paired it with the girl skull and cross bones image.





Above is the finished invitation. :)
