My Artwork

I've been enjoying painting since moving back to the States. Instead of an office space we created an art studio. If I can ever get it clean again, I will do a post on it and how we created the room. 
Anyway, I thought I'd share some of my work. It's really amazing me how distinct me style has become. I can also look back through the years and see it developing.

Listening and Mother's Day

We've only said 100 times "No Wrestling!" They listen.

My precious children made me a wonderful video for Mother's day. I am blessed beyond words!

This article really speaks to me. We've been living in a flash flood of our own lately. We watched the proverbial tent floating down the river and are actively redirecting now! We are setting new goals.
"We’re always taught to never give up — “don’t be a quitter” — but honestly, what does “not giving up” look like in a flash flood?
When you’re slogging it out, giving something your all, don’t you ever stop and think, "Even if I could eventually break through this brick wall with my bare hands, do I really want to spend the next five years clawing at it?"
I suppose it depends on what’s on the other side, but sometimes I really think it takes a stronger person to back up, redirect, and choose a new goal. It’s something my mother does well and something I wish I did better."  ~Laura Munoz

Decorating and making old things new

I can plan up great projects, but sometimes I need my handy crew to make them come to fruition. Dax and Delaney are amazing at making my visions come to life! 
 Making my vision a reality! My hubs is amazing!!!
I love my scarf and bookshelf.

 This kid had spray painting skills!!!
 Wish I had taken a picture of the refrigerator before. It was rusted and not very pretty. Now our extra fridge is a work of art!

A broken wrist can't stop our family from playing cards!
And legos rock :-)
