Free Mother's Day Art Print

Hey there!

It's been so long that I had to wipe the dust off of this thing again. It feels like anytime I try to come back here, life happens. But today I hit pause on life to share with you my latest labor of love.

Proverbs 31:28 is one of my mom's favorite verses (something she mentioned to me a few weeks ago), so I knew I had to incorporate it into her Mother's Day gift. I settled on creating an art print for her, so she can proudly hang it on her wall (as a daily reminder of who the better daughter is ;)

I've included the link for a free download in case you are in need of a last minute Mother's Day gift (or just some pretty everyday art work). Take it to your favorite print shop, snag a pretty frame (Michael's has been having some great frame sales, and they always have coupons on their website), and you are done!

I made a bonus print as well because I keep seeing "If mothers were flowers I'd pick you" & I just love it so.

I hope you enjoy!

Life Lately.

I had to pull out the Swiffer and use some good ol' fashioned elbow grease to get the dust off of this thing.

It's been seemingly forever since I've written a word, and man, I sure have missed it.

Writing is hard work though. It's hard enough when you feel you have nothing to say. But, it's darn near impossible when you feel you have everything to say, and just no energy to do so.

The climate of our world is changing, and getting nastier by the moment. Facebook friend lists are diminishing by the second (I'm guilty of purging of few myself). And everyone is pointing their finger at someone else.

It has been the single most overwhelming time of my life. I'm overly sensitive, you see. I cry at commercials, books, movies, songs, memes on the internet, cute kids in the grocery store, homeless people on the street, basically EVERYTHING. So sometimes my heart feels like it's being broken every second of every day.

Sometimes I can step back and guard myself from the crushing weight of it all, and sometimes it sneaks up on me too quickly. Lately it's been much more of the latter, so I've had to take a step back to do some self reflection. That self reflection, has led me back here. This is a safe place for me. A retreat. So I intend to be back more regularly. And I do hope you all will join me.
