Far more than Isabel­la Kate but I think it has some­thing to do with being a new­born with a full tum­my and a 3 year old that is always ready to play. Tomor­row I am going to take pho­tos of Isabel­la Kate’s toes and fin­gers.

What a moment…

May 9, 2007

I have been a fan of Martha Stew­art for over 20 years and I nev­er thought I would get to talk to Martha much less to Martha Live on her show.

A bunch of this and that…

May 3, 2007

A por­tion of our fence was knocked down and our neigh­bors tram­po­line (they live 3 hous­es down) end­ed up in our back­yard. I have been play­ing with some alco­hol inks by Ranger and must say Ranger + Maya Road = pure delight! Look at how pret­ty these Sheer Blos­soms look inked and accent­ed with glass glit­ter.
