Heard from the front seat of the Tahoe...

Yesterday while headed to baseball (it's spring, where else would I be going) I was sitting in the front seat reading something on my phone (Titan Boy was driving) when I heard this....

Littlest Tahoe says: "Ya know I have boy makeup at grandma's house in a special drawer. She says it's ok for boys to wear makeup and I like it"

Ummmm WHAT? Boy Makeup? My inlaws are very conservative so I am now shocked at this comment. What the heck is boy makeup?

As I turn around obviously confused Sassy says: " Don't worry mom, he's just talking about chapstick. That's what he calls boy makeup."

Phewwww, I was getting worried I was gonna find him wearing my lipstick and borrowing my eyeliner...

Sometimes, out of nowhere, comes an event that puts everything into perspective. This is that week for me.

This morning a childhood friend called to let me know her brother had passed away. My heart breaks for her as I think of all the fun we all had as children. He was a unique and charismatic character and will truly be missed.

Tomorrow I have the opportunity to witness joy in families where stress normally resides. For four days they will be nothing but pampered and I get to help send them off on their journey.

Recently I have learned of friends with illnesses and family struggles. Nothing seems to be easy for anyone these days.

All of this leaves me wondering how my perspective will change after all of these events. I am blessed with a happy, healthy family and love in all directions. I have been through hell and back in my 36 years on this earth and am looking forward to many more years but will I continue to head in the same direction or will my path change? These are questions I cannot answer but I look forward to the journey that does answer them.

I hope your day is full of sunshine, even though sometimes it hides behind the clouds.

This is fun...

Today I decided it was time to do some sprucing up of my website (, my website's blog ( and then I thought, well I need to update this blog as well! I have had a morning for creative fun redesigning everything!

Oh, did I mention HUGE CLEARANCE SALE on my other blog? Oh yeah, I added tons of great products and super low pricing in an effort to clean out the studio and get ready for all the new products headed in for spring! I cannot wait to get started on all the new stuff...that means....everything else has to go! Check it out and I am sure you will find something over there you can use (or give!)

Just a couple of the things you might find on sale...
