Happy Spring everyone!

I've missed blogging, creating, painting, drawing, sketching a lot and I am finally finding a bit of time finally to do some. Over the past 6 months my Mom has fallen 3 times, been hospitalized for cuts and bruised (but no broken bones thank goodness) and has had a lot of trouble with anxiety and her Demetia is progressing. She will be 90 years old June 5th, God bless her, and still walks everyday.

In December we had to move her to Assisted Living and as some of you probably know its an extremely stressful time for a parent to move out of their home and into a completely different life with total strangers, including a new roommate. My Mom struggled a lot for the first three months but has now settled in and is making new friends and just loves the caretakers and the staff. Its actually become our extended family, I love being there with her, its been a huge blessing to her, she is loved so much there.

I wanted to give you guys a little something for Easter, a little Peter Rabbit image called, Happy Trails, I hope you like him. He is a little tribute to my Mom who loves all the bunnies at Easter time and who still loves to walk everyday:) I am also working on some new rubber stamp sets with Sparkle N Sprinkle so I will be sure to keep you posted on those as well.

I am having a 50% OFF SALE now thru April 17th, 2017, just use COUPON CODE: SPRING17
Come on over to my Etsy shop HERE:)

I've been putting on my crafting hat lately, I think all the DIY pins on Pinterest has helped sprout my creativity in a new way, so much fun! I'm making some little thank you treat bags for the staff at the Assisted Living Home, so fun to make, candy, treat bags and ribbon and some hand made gift tags, will be cute in my Mom's Easter basket as well:)

I got the ribbon and treat bags from DAISO, I don't know if you have one where you live but its my favorite store to go shop in, someone said its like the dollar store on crack, it really is, so fun, they have everything:)

I also started bible art journaling, hand-lettering and working with watercolor and pen and ink in my new moleskin sketchbooks over the past months, it was like therapy while I was trying to deal with my Mom's transition so what has come out of it is the start of a hand painted prayer book for my Mom's 90th birthday in June. Here is a little peek:

I hope you guys are doing well, I would love to hear what you are doing with your creativity so far this year, please feel free to share, see you soon!
