Circles and more circles

We found bedding for my son's room from The Land of Nod that my husband and I both just loved.  It was perfect.  We found the perfect paint color from Benjamin Moore called Peacock Blue.  I couldn't however, find artwork that I liked.  I decided that I would make it, but wasn't quite sure how it would turn out.  I had a vision of different size circles in different patterns and one day while walking through Michael's Crafts I figured it out.  Scrapbook papers in different patterns and canvas, some spray glue and Mod Podge.  To my surprise, they look great!

New Life

I have been a mother for over a year!  I have been a mother to a living child for 6 weeks today.  It is truly a miracle.  I can stare at him all day long and just think that my husband and I created him.  We are truly blessed to have him in our lives. 

Lia Rose was born last year on January 2, she was 22 weeks early.  She was too small to survive, but she survives in our hearts everyday.  She has truly touched our lives in the short time that I carried her and we will never be the same.  We are able to appreciate what we have now to an even deeper level I believe.

Spring is springing

Posted by Picasa

Last week I had a manicure and pedicure for the first time in about a year at least quite possibly longer. My toes were painted brightly and as I walked into my parents house I noticed the lilies blooming. It made me smile to see. It is a new beginning and for me this spring it truly is. We were blessed with a son in February and our new life as a family is beginning. More to come on this later.
