a Tuesday in my life.

I'm back, and making time for my little blog to keep up with posting daily, making the time for my creative practice and enjoying the little things...such as my self portrait today, enjoying spotty shoes in summer.

Having breakfast alone, this may seem odd, but there are some mornings when I wait till everyone is finished and off doing their own thing so I can sit and daydream a little while I have a moment to myself to enjoy my food and a hot tea. Its the small moments of sanity when you are a mother, that you cherish deeply. Many understand this, I know that for a fact.

we took the teacup humans and went to Ikea to get a few things, a little sewing desk for me was on the list till I could afford my dream desk. We found one and a bookshelf...whilst the boy put together the desk, I set up my art supplies and journal at the dining table and just arted quietly.

a little bit smitten with my LAMY fountain pen, writes like a dream, such a sweet pen to doodle with.
and I leave you with my little lily boo...my eli is growing into a photographer, and lily..has my other passion...drawing and writing in little books aka ' my dornal' it seems all the good parts of me, are rubbing off on them.
see you tomorrow for something else, who knows what!
and pop in on friday for...

the world through elijah's eyes.
