I have been super focused on getting this piece finished however I still made time to construct a funky lego house with my little guy. Legos are taking over the world ( or at least my house! ).

He is wonderful , I can not say enough. I just got his " you can tell Georgia " CD and it is great! I like this one better than " Four Seasons ". I found out about him from ..... Greys Anatomy. His song was featured in the first season. His song is now featured in a car commercial...... I think Hyundi " just can't seem to get it right today " . My little one and I sing along in the car. He loves Joe Purdy too!
You can hear his stuff on his website www.joepurdy.com ( I think, google his name ). Trust me , you will love it.
Bye for now!!

This is a new collage that I just listed on etsy. I have always loved trees and I especially love them when they have no leaves. I was inspired by a road near my home that had a line of trees just like the above. I started thinking about the road , the journey we are making in life. The fear sometimes of what lies ahead juxtaposed with the excitement of a new beginning at every turn. We are all walking on our path...... we can choose to run to quickly get where we are going... but we can also choose to walk and take in all that is around . In the end I guess we can say, We all have the same path..... but it is up to us to make sure we do not get lost. For those that are lost , there is always a way home..............
Talk to you soon,

My husband was so funny, he was showing everyone the magazine..... My kids said " Hey that's mommies dress !!!" I am so thrilled and encourage all to take a chance and just do it...... put yourself out there and believe.

I realize that this is all about a simple sleepover, however all the mothers out there understand. It is in the tiny moments that we realize who we really are.
To all mothers letting go , have a great 1st day!!!! Courtney P.

Well , I really do not sew and as far as fashion goes...... I wear either black , grey or brown. I love to see color and funk in clothes, I just do not wear them. Oddly enough I have submitted some altered clothing items to the Stampington and company magazines " Altered Couture" and was asked to submit more for their "Bell Armoire" magazine. I am so honored and happy. This dress will be in the Feb. issue and I am not sure yet when the other magazine will be out. I find my magazines at Borders or Barnes and Nobles. Some craft /art stores carry them too. I always get so inspired looking at all the great work and wonderful artists. I made some funky shoes with plant roots and a jacket and skirt ensemble for a funky bird lover. Thanks to all at Stampington and Company.
I can not forget to show some of my kiddies art. I love to display them all over my little house. Some of my bedroom walls are this dark blue ( they look more navy in real life than the picture because of the flash ), and the art looks just stunning against the color. I think even when they have grown I will still have these masterpieces hanging. They get a kick out of seeing their work also!
Take Care and talk to you soon!
