Art Journals, Happy Mail and Formspring

After I made my first art journal pages for the "Tell your story" class, Kaylee quickly let me know that she wanted her own art journal, so like any crafty momma I made her one.

It's small and it fits her perfectly, she has been filling the pages with her own little drawings and I love watching her sit on the couch concentrating on whatever it is she is trying to draw.

I also received a little happy mail this week! I got a lovely handmade card from my happy mail partner Jaymi (I'm loving the matryoshka tape), a Marilyn Monroe note pad from Gina and a few more Thailand goodies from my sister Samantha.

I've also been hard at work getting Jaymi and Gina's happy mail packages ready to send out.

Last, I will leave you with a formspring question someone asked me last week.
  • Is your life what you thought it would be when you were younger?
Not at all! It is so much more than I ever imagined.  Growing up I thought I would always live in the small town I grew up in married to what was then my high school sweetheart (I use that term loosely, it was a very unhealthy relationship and he is far from sweet) and just live the small town life that I had always known. Thankfully after high school I moved away from my hometown to go to school and found a different way of life that I absolutely fell in love with. In doing so I was able to meet some amazing people along the way and my red headed fox. Now I'm happily married with two little ones and have a handful of friends that I wouldn't trade for the world. I feel as though I am right where I'm supposed to be. :)

Love & Robots,

And I'm slightly envious of the lovely things you've been getting in the mail. Thanks for visiting my blog earlier!! I adore yours! It's so lovely! Happy Tuesday!
