What's on Your Work Desk??

Life is moving right along.
My two teens  are now in their 4th full week of high school.



Homecoming is right around the corner and they both have dates. 


Time is going so fast. 
I am just trying to keep
every moment shared,
every sweet conversation we have,
tucked in my heart for future reference.

 So very soon
all of this will be in the past.
They will be living their own lives...
making their own dreams
in their own homes. 



Jacks & his girl Sarah.




Time goes, you say?  Ah no!
Alas, Time stays, we go.
~Henry Austin Dobson

 

I have been creating in between golf and soccer games,
dentist appointments and church activities. 
Creating fills my heart with such joy and comfort.

I am grateful for art.
I think it will make it a bit easier to say goodbye
when my kids move on.

At least I hope it does.



These are just a few of my Brave Art pieces.
These are wooden blocks 
I decorated with paper, paint, bits of odds and ends
 and vintage girl images. 
They are meant to encourage you
to reach for your dreams and be a Brave Girl.



Stop by Julia's today for over 100 Work Desks and projects!!

  2. Hello my friend!! You made me tear up - those photos (with Jacks looking so proud of his girl ;) and your beautiful "babies" - all in high school now and you wanting to capture every moment - oh! That made me swallow hard ;) But you are so right to do that! AND I really like your brave canvases - they are full of detail, color and wonderful reminders.
    Thank you, xoxo
