Hi and welcome! 

I'm a Momma, wife and artist. With 3 of my 4 kids almost grown, I can look back and share with you everything I learned on my favorite subject, raising a family. Like Albert Einstein said "Rejoice with your family in the wonderful land of life" and though things may get messy, you can't really go wrong. xoox



fun with my family

back to school

everything about September is great....the first day of school picture, the new shoes, the old friends.  But, amidst the excitement, i still cry that another year has flown by.  The juxtuposition of the two emotions makes for a lot of extra hugs around here.  i finally have time to reflect when they are off at school, and i have realized that i feel better when i can mark the occasion, acknowledging the passage of time.  One way is to create a kind of small "care package/ welcome back to school present" and the other is a miniature time capsule.

Oh Les, you did it! Your house has always been a little mad studio of darling projects and stunning artwork. I remember walking into Masonic and feeling like I was in the pages of a magazine with your "Play" flag at the front door and your chalkboard musings (was it "word of the week?") So happy to see that you've decided to share it with the world! Now I'm dying to see your inventions. Congratulations!
