Photos of the Week


So glad I got out while the weather was still spring-like last week! Man it changes fast here.  Now it feels more like January again.

Life is moving quickly- my husband just accepted a good job offer and now we can start hunting for a new house!  Hooray!  I'm sooooooo ready for those changes!

A Look at my Sketchbook

 My brain is overflowing with painting ideas.  Good thing I captured some of them in my sketchbook over the last few months.  If I don't record them, they leave me and may or may not return.


One sunny afternoon I got the urge to get outdoors and sketch some landscape.  It's all still brown here but it was beautiful and warm and I was reminded of why I love to create outdoors!  It restores my soul and gives me peace.

What's your favorite way to spend time outdoors? 

Me displaying my awesome ability to photograph myself and draw at the same time-haha!  not really- I was just posing here!

Photos of the Week


My last living grandparent passed away last week. Sad, yes, but also a relief for one who suffered as long as my grandmother did.  


Our trip to Southern Utah for the funeral was short, but sweet.  Full of family and a little sight seeing in between.

As sad as I was for my grandmother's passing, I found it strange that there is something I mourn every month that, for me, is even sadder than that.  Not being able to have more children.  I mourn for the life that never got to be.  I go through that grief month after month and it never gets easier.  I always have some tiny little hope that maybe......maybe this will be the month that a miracle happens. 

 But it's not meant to be yet.  I feel strongly that the Lord's timing is the perfect timing, no matter when it is.  His timing is always perfect and it never makes sense until what we've been waiting for happens.

My grandmother suffered alone for nine years before her time to go came and I don't understand the reason for that, but I'm sure she does.  I'm sure she's happy.

Photos of the Week

Valentine's Photography- nature hearts by Elise Engh: growcreative

It's that time of year again............time to come up with some new things to shape into hearts and photograph.  

This year I went the more natural route.  I even went to the trouble of cutting heart shapes out of poinsettia leaves by folding them in half and going at them with scissors- like cutting out paper hearts. I've gotta try that with bigger leaves sometime. Fun stuff!
