If You Make It

...they will come :)

I was pleasantly surprised to see that I had made two sales last night in my shop. It just reinforces the idea that if you are making things that you believe in, success is just around the corner. I sold my little bird on a cup painting and an owl print. I have about ten ideas in my head for new little paintings, I just lack the time!

Also my baby has learned that he can roll around on the floor to get the things he wants. He is becoming so aware of his surroundings that he will not nap during the day! He thinks it is play time all day long. Seriously, I put him down for a nap in his crib yesterday (he was clearly tired), but he spent an entire hour babbling, yelling, rolling around, and still did not sleep. Also when he sees one of the cats he squeals at them which sends them running! It truly is fun to see his excitement for life. He is all smiles for most the day which makes his momma smile too.

Now I think I will go pour myself a cup of coffee with peppermint mocha creamer and sketch out a painting. It is my birthday today and I am going to make the most of it. I am one year older, one year wiser (maybe), and one year closer to becoming an even cooler person right?



    Great to read about your sales overnight...it sure is encouraging! You will just sketch and paint in your snippets of time now, with little one under foot. He sure is a doll!!!

  2. Oh YEAH for you - that's an awesome birthday present : D . Wait until he starts walking.....you will loose about 5 pounds and half your hair! LOL !!!
