9 Years of Marriage - WIP Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

-


Creating is my passion, my sanity, my sense of being "up to something", my way of contributing a little bit. I always have a few projects going, many left to the side for months or even years before I pick up the best and carry on. Here's some of what I'm working on this week:


I started this blog six months after I got married, as a way to record the blessings and happy thoughts in my life as my newlywed beloved husband prepared to deploy for a year.

Today we celebrate nine years of being married.


We've been through thick and thin, this HandsomeJoe and I.

Thank you my dearest one for all you bring to this life.



Thank you to all who stood by us then, stand by us now, and for those to come.

What are you working on? What are you excited about attempting? What are you proud to be working on? Take a picture or two and share it with the rest of us by leaving your link or a few words in the comments.

August Painting Challenge Final - 31 paintings in 29 days

-


August Painting Challenge Complete! 

31 paintings in 29 days. 

This month I set myself the challenge of (averaging) one painting per day. 

Almost every painting was done in the evening, after the girls were asleep, with what little brain power I had left after a full day. Each painting was done within about 60 minutes before I ran out of steam.

If Daddy wants a Princess Cake, Daddy can have a Princess Cake.

-

Every so often, after we put the girls to bed, HandsomeJoe and I watch an episode or two of something cheerful. We slowly made our way through The Great British Baking Show. When we got to the episode with the Sweedish Princessa Torte, HandsomeJoe proclaimed "I want a Princessatorte for my birthday!" 

If Daddy wants a Princess Cake, Daddy can have a Princess Cake.

He may originally have been kidding.

For his birthday, we made him one.
