here is my inspiration for this fine Monday! hope you all on the word "here" and you will see and hear the video...he's pretty easy on the eyes too!! ; )

i thought i would share the lyrics along with it...there are some GREAT ones in this can find them here.
"You’re the color of the colored part of The Wizard of Oz movie" - love this and
"we'll throw the careful into the crazy". good good stuff!!
i am SUCH a music person and so influenced and inspired by so many different musical styles. it is funny how i tend to pick out one line, maybe two...that just make that song for me!!!

here are 2 paintings i have been working on. i am starting a series of these that i am going to put in my etsy shop. my goal is to have that open up sometime in January...!!!!! (fingers crossed)! I was also asked by a friend of mine to do a painting for her mom!! i am so excited and am going to start that project very soon since it is for Christmas!!
and last but most certainly not baby girl turned 7 yesterday and here she is opening up a pair of boots that she got and just LUUUUUVED!! i am still in the process of writing her birthday letter to her! she is an amazing little soul who has an infectious love for life!!! i strive to be more like her in that realm!! i love you Sydnie Lou as wide as the sky and as deep as the sea! and as she says to me..."mom, i love you the last number"!

Happy happy monday one and all! Peace!! xxooxxoo

  6. Your baby girl is totally stylin'.

  7. What cute boots!!! I hope your girl had a great Birthday. Thanks for stopping by and saying hi!!

  8. Yay for your etsy shop!!! That's fantastic :) Your little girl is so beautiful- happy birthday to her. I'm going to check out the music now... I always love the music on your blog and have actually bought songs from itunes that I heard here!

  9. Hmmmmm .. the song that is in my head is Part Time Lover by Stevie Wonder, though I don't know that it describes my life. Except for the fact that when I sing it, I think that I really need a part-time assistant (or part-time house-cleaner). Does that count? :)


i heart love notes....
