Today marks TWELVE YEARS for this little blog!


Can you even believe it??
February 11, 2007 I posted my very first post here.
I know I don't post as often anymore,
seems folks love Facebook and Instagram right now.

Blogging has become outdated but
truth-be-known,
I've met the most precious friends here!!!

Thank you always for visiting me and following
my life, my journey and my art.
And so, to celebrate I'll will actually POST today!!!!
HAHAHA!!!




I'm in love with all the precious birds in our new neighborhood!
It's an older neighborhood so the trees are huge and so we have
tons of different birds and other visitors too!
Even chubby squirrels ~ I'm sorry, I just love them!
I had hamsters when I was young and they remind me of them!




I started off with this lame bowl full of birdseed on the back deck
but after a heavy rain it instantly became soup!!!




I can see this sweet feeder from my computer so you know I love it but
something had to change.




I found this covered feeder at Wallyworld for only about 20 bucks.
Now, that's much better!!!





After days and days of rain in Georgia, it was so great to see the blue sky again!




We finally emptied our storage unit and put our leather furniture in the living room.
I'm so loving it all and very thankful for our boys who made it happen!



And guess what???
The studio is FINALLY taking shape and is looking wonderful!
Here's a sneak peak and I promise I will share more photos later.




The new studio is already inspiring me!!!
When you see all of your beautiful supplies, you are
reminded of the cool ideas that you had while buying them!

I can't wait to get back to creating but I have a bit more to unpack.
Says every hoarding artist!!!
But what I say is you can't create without supplies...
the more you have, the more you have to draw from.

Wishing you a sweet Valentine's Day dear friends!!!
You know I love you all ~

Happy New Year dear friends!





Yes...I know. I know.
I've been gone a long, long time.
But I really do love this blog and SO pray
that I can connect with you all
much more here this new year.

The transition of moving was so easy, the move?
Not so much.
I hate to keep harping on that fact but it truly was a hard thing.

We are now settled in our sweet new home and now that Christmas is over
I feel like I can now concentrate on decorating AND
of course working on the new studio!!!

When you have the amount of STUFF that I have, because believe me
when you are an artist you really need the items, materials and supplies
to create what comes to your mind...it's a daunting task to organize it all.

So that is my goal for the new year!!
To get the new studio organized and ready to make beautiful things!
My muse is poking me and I am ready to create!!!

I pray you had a beautiful Christmas, we really did!
And now that it's the new year it's time for me to shake off the old
and begin with the new.

Our small tree with big love...



I watched our precious grandbabies while mom and dad had appointments.
Can you believe baby Tilly??? She will be a year old Jan. 25th!!!!



Nine year old big sister Clara is always willing to help! Tilly loves her like a second mama!



And brother Murray chills watching his very favorite show!




Then the princess Tilly sleeps!



We decorated for Christmas...




We celebrated our sweet grandson Owen's 2nd birthday too!!! Born on Christmas eve
and now his daddy and mama, David and Heather are expecting a baby girl in May!!!
We are all SO excited!!! Her name will be Lily...how beautiful is that??







Happy New Year precious friends,
I'm praying for a wonderful one for each and every one of us!!!

So now I will get back to getting my new studio in order because
I am so ready to get back to creating!!!
Wish me luck angels!
I'll share progress soon, promise!

Hugs and love,
Dawn

Our new little corner of the world!


It has been a crazy couple of months.
I mean it.
Moving is never an easy task but when you are an artist
and a lover of all things beautiful...well...
chances are you have WAAAAY too much stuff!

Anyway, who cares.
I love my stuff and believe me,
I've let go of a ton of it.
Donated, sold and discarded so, so very much.
That's good, right?

We are finally settled into our new home and
I'm finally getting to the fun part!!!
Decorating and making it feel like "HOME".

Here is my view as I sat at the computer a few mornings ago ~





These photos are not that wonderful but here is our new living room!!!







We are fluffing and getting ready for Thanksgiving next week!
There is still so much to be unpacked and the studio has been put on hold
until after Thanksgiving but it really is coming along beautifully!!!




One last photo.
Our youngest granddaughter Tilly is now 9 months old and
is such a sweetie pie!!!



I hope you are doing well and getting ready for a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Whether it is big or small, it doesn't matter.
Just to be thankful for your life and all that you are blessed with
is truly what Thanksgiving is all about!



Thank you always for stopping by to visit me ~
Hugs and love,
Dawn
