It happened slowly over a few months and then full obsession hit – I am in love with gem shapes! I found these sweet little patterns for geometric shapes on mini-eco, she has a pdf on her site or you can find it here. I made these from a thick paper in a mono-chromatic color scheme and just couldn’t stop adding glitter. These little natural crystal forms are popping up in some of my new artwork for this spring and I have dedicated a growing idea board to them on pinterest. I haven’t immersed myself with x-acto knifes and glues like this since art school, which coincidently I just received my 10 year alumni postcard from – yikes.

I am a wife, mother, friend, artist, swimmer, traveler, cook, adventurer and follower of Christ. This is where I share the best moments in my day – the kind you know would be a crime to keep to yourself. I write like I talk, not too fancy but from the heart. View all posts by Kate

- Going to see Incredibles 2 for Father’s Day... these folks were ahead of us, feeling like our family is underdressed 😳!Sometimes you just need to take the matter into your own hands... I’ve been wanting to paint a cornhole set for some time. I was giddy when I saw this class offered at my local Home Depot. Tonight I built my own boards... now to choose a design. Let the lawn games begin!The early bird gets the shmear. The little one wanted to get up early and be one of the first fifty people at a new Einstein’s by our house. The older child chose to sleep in. I’m thinking natural consequences may come into play at some point...Behind the smiles there were a few tears... We loved our neighbors on Thornhill; these girls and their mamas! They were such an answer to prayer when we moved here. We have been renting in Colorado for the last two years and the owner wanted to move back in. 😓Thankfully we were able to find a new home to purchase nearby and make it a bit more of our own. Trusting the bond that was formed and biker gang will never be broken!Last day of school!!! So proud of my gold metal academic girls, they rocked their classes with perfect scores.We woke up early this morning to watch the royal wedding. This afternoon we toasted the new couple with high tea and fascinators!
