lovebirds in my strawberry patch!


look at these little cuties i found!
when they were paired together in my carriage, they soon became the best of friends! they are so adorable, i think they have a little crush on eachother and are a bit shy. when i came home from work this evening i found them getting cuddly in my strawberry patch- so lovely these little creatures! :) so glad the weekend is almost here! happy wednesday everyone! :)

love life

wow- haven't written in quite some time, but here i am, back in the blog world. :) it's been so busy lately at home. with work, class and homework, my time spent at home is either on the computer or spent trying to "rest".

even though i'd rather be crazy busy doing other things, i've jsut been really happy lately. :) there are soem new and exciting things going on in my personal life and i'm just really excited aand happy for the future. i love my family, i love my little cutie of a husband and i just love my life. i'm happy. are any of you guys extra happy??? what makes you happy? :)

Peruvian Piety...

i've been SUPER busy! doing what? i have no clue! but i've been busy alright! i just came back from peru (my brohter got married there- yahoo!) and was totally inspired by all of the hand woven textiles and alpaca roaming around. :)

so one of the things that has been keeping me busy is a photoshop class that i started right before my trip to peru- and here is my first homework assignment! i've been thinking a lot about lace ruffs for the past several months- so i also added little Baby Jesus in there because he's usually dressed in some pretty elaborate velvets, lace, ribbon, etc. inspired by the streets soley devoted to selling religious relics. paintings, dolls, statues, clothes for your saints, night lights, rosaries, tapestry, and of course, crowns to adorn your Baby Jesus! so with Baby Jesus in there i'm free to mix in all lace and pretty delicate things that i want to.

i'm pretty excited about the photoshop class- especially after fiddling around with it last night. i will share pictures of Peru once i find some time- as for now- i'm a busy bee with homework and wanting to draw. Sunday is my only day to myself so i think i might start drawing something. i got a huge piece of watercolor paper from swain's so i'm set for a huge painting- i'm thinking of painting scenes around the home- me and my cutie, loungin' around and being lazy.. pretty sweet huh? :) i feel happy at the moment. optimistic...

what's got you feeling happy and optimistic these days????
