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

happy Presidents Day!

 

 President's Day!

sooo fun!!!! I make the kids learn all the presidents.

check out the video right here, trust me, they will balk at you, laugh it off, ignore you and joke about it at first. just keep trying, learn it with them, play it often, and..... pretty soon, your whole family will be singing! "Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Adams, Jackson......"  

don't hurt me.

one of my favorite things to do...probably because i never have time to do it!

But, if I did...i would love me a few of these to help with the corralling of the stuff.

you could make these or order them. very cute even for gift toppers.

save time with a uniform

When I paint I wear an apron. When I cook I wear an apron.  When I go out in public, I wear an apron. Just kidding. But, I do wear a uniform.

 Einstein had only white shirts and the same color pants and jackets, so he would have one less thing to think about in the morning.  

What is your winter uniform?  Here's mine:  

1. blazer.  you can't mess this up. 

 Not only does it make whatever your wearing look instantly put together; it's actually really warm.  

 

 

 

2. Cashmere.  Since i base most of my wardrobe decisions on warmth.  It may be expensive but you will wear it all the time, so it pays for itself!    warm sweater=good.

3.White button down.  This is really more spring/summer, but, they go with everything and look good on everyone. And, you can wear it under your blazer or sweater! They are surprisingly hard to find.  Here are some good ones:)

That's it. plus some skinny jeans, flats or cute boots. I am finally done trying to put together an "outfit" every morning.  Just some variation on this theme and i'm good to go.   Now, it's Tuesday people, I've got to get my uniform on and get back to work!
