The best of intentions ~

I really have had the best of get into my studio and create. It's so clean and ready for me! I've even started working on my sweet tiny doll dress project but with school starting Monday, yes, that's what I said, and with all the other things going on around here, it seems as my creative energy is being drained by the rest of the day.

Noah had his open house last night, I ended up giving him a short little haircut yesterday for that too ~ plus Chase heads of to college in a few weeks and we're getting everything together for that as well.

Below in the photo, can you see how I trim my paper for all the areas that I'm going to use the gel medium to adhere it? That way I don't waste's all ready to go. I still want to age the little floral print paper as it's too white and crispy for me :)

Clara dozed off for a nap and I had to get a photo of her ~
she's so precious!!!
And look at her toys!!! She's grabbing them, chewing on them
and growing so very fast ~

Thank you always for stopping by to see me ~
I hope that things will settle down here a little come Monday.....
so I can get back in the groove!!!

Wishing you an amazing Thursday dear friends ~
xxoo, Dawn

I'm feelin' you girl! Been where you are sooo many times!

I've found everything is right where I left it whenever it is I can get back to it.

Love your blog...amazingly GREAT!

Speaking from experience...all those things can wait--the children won't--they will be all grown up and leaving the nest before you know it! Plenty of time then. Clara is a living doll! You are blessed.

I was with Emma yesterday and she is so cute grabbing at everything and looking like the world is a great big toy for her to play with!
My son's name is Chase, didn't know you had one too!

I know exactly how you feel. I have been stuck all summer. I think it may be because I have had no time to call my own. Hopefully that will change for both of us soon and we'll be back in that creative swing.
If nothing else, you get to spend time with sweet little Clara. :)

Can't wait to see the finished piece! Clara looks adorable, wish she was mine!! x

Barbara Jean said...

It's going to be wonderful!!

Life does get in the way of our creating sometimes, doesn't it.
But, those kids are so much more important than anything we can make.
Of course you know that well.

I'm shocked that school is back in session in August. What is education coming to?

Clara is a beautiful pink bundle there. I know that she's so much fun for you all at this age.

Connie said...

She's beautiful, sugar; aren't granddaughters fun?!?!

Sandy said...

Oh Dawn, I know exactly what you mean. I was so excited to have my space so clean and neat and ready to muss up again but with all the remodeling going on here I just have not had time to do anything but serve on the clean up crew. Here's to hoping things settle down soon.

Clara is so precious!

Becky said...

Sweet Dawn, a clean studio is a good thing, I cleaned mine so marvelously and got to work for about an hour... till I had to find something
(a tiny ball of moss) I knew I had (and needed) It took me 2 hours to find it and I destroyed the studio looking for it... LOL that ever happen to you? I think I'll clean the mess later. ;o)

The picture of Clara is adorable. The toys near her reminds me of when our Granddaughter Kayla was a baby. Summit one of our Grandsons is 9 now and still has his blankie, it is a awful looking thing. Jenny tries to wash it, it is almost beyond washing. Busy is what Mom's are, and getting kids ready and off to school is allot on the plate. We will be here Dear Friend, Hugs Mary

Amanda said...

Dear Dawn,
I'm back from the mountains and trying to catch up with my blog friends and the first thing I see is baby Clara. Whew! My, she's beautiful. I remember when Leah was bundled like that. Also loved your studio!!!!

School in August. Oh My! Clara gets more beautiful everyday. She looks like a little pea in a pod the way she is all wrapped up. She is so lucky that gramma takes such wonderful pictures of her. Sharon
