Levi and I, again, and Mila in the background playing with a pink balloon (because pink balloons are awesome.) I so appreciate the fact that my children are so talented that I don’t need to hire a photographer to do mom and tot shots of me with my little ones… lol. My 11 year old daughter took this photograph.

Edited in Photoshop CS5, using my own textures and actions.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    And your nose! :) He’s totally got your nose. His eyes are so shiny like two little buttons! He appears to be completely preoccupied. What a DOLL. And yes, when you have a house full of artists, you won’t need to call anybody for help. Now, if you’re smart, you’ll be sure that two of your children are master chefs, one is a seamstress, another- an event planner (gotta have somebody keeping all of those birthdays parties in order), another child can be a carpenter, make sure one is a lawyer- oh! And you need a doctor- kid too. if you do all of that, you can start a town. ;) heheh..

  • lol!!! I’m working on the chef thing (Perrin is studying full time to be a chef) Josh and Jacob are great computer technicians, Josh is also my general electrician, plumber and handyman, Tane is my writer, photographer, artist (Mila, too – up and coming) John is a great carpenter… Plumb out of lawyers and doctors, though Hudson studies bugs… still looking for a way to make that useful… I love that idea, I think I’ll start a town. ; ) Thank you so much for your comment, Birgitta!! PS I am so excited he has my nose!!! NONE of the others do… lol.
