Getting Started

Welcome to my new blog spot. I'm new at this so please bare with me.
I've been a stay at home mom for 2 months and one week. Since giving up my successful career, I have started to find myself again. The artist one. The one who majored in theater and minored in art. The one who loves getting her hands dirty and exploring nature. The one who creates!

The first victim since I've been home? My family room wall!
Below are a few starter pictures. I originally was going to throw in some red Chinese maple leaves. Then my dad pointed out that they resemble marijuana! So the search for a new leaf is on it's way. Until then I'll have to work on the branches and birds...

A friend recently asked if I was going to put blossoms on my tree.

Great idea! Why didn't I think of it? I love cherry blossoms or even apple tree blossoms. I suppose I'll explore that idea a little bit further and see if it will go with my color scheme in my family room. Until I discover the leaf or blossom of my dreams my poor incomplete family room wall will have to do without it's "pants".


  1. Cousin! I'm so excited to hear that you're staying at home! What a change! Hope to hear more about your adventures in the future. Good luck. Hope you and the family are well! :)
