Hope all you mothers and grandmothers and children of mothers had a lovely day last Sunday!
I myself had a great day with my own sweet mummy, who is the loveliest most Irish looking lady you would ever meet! Hehe!
After some expression of sadness from her regarding the fact that I'd never painted anything just for her, I whipped this piece up for my mom especially for Mother's Day.
Based off of this picture from when she was a tiny little girl:
And I also remembered that I forgot to share a piece I made especially for Melanie of Rabbit Hole Art from our art swap last month:
Not only have I been sending out art, but I've received it recently as well! Miss Jessica of A Woodland Fantasy sent me this gorgeous pencil piece for my birthday! We each had Wonderland themes to our birthday art for eachother, how funny is that!? I think we know each other TOO well sometimes haha. Anyway, it has taken pride of place on my shelf so I can look at it while sitting in bed. I LOVE IT! Thanks so much Jess!
Jessica ALSO sent me these magnificent labels that she made herself! I have already used a few of them in a secret witchy project I've been concocting that I will share soon.
We have also had a visitor at our little Shire recently too. Well I think there are two of them. Their twins. Shall we name them? I haven't a clue what their names could be, maybe you know? I can't help but want to name them Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny.
And finally, I've been deep into Sarah Addison Allen's books! Remember when I shared the Sugar Queen? Well I got my mom reading that one now and she, who normally is finicky with books, has been addicted to it. This is good stuff. I am on to Garden Spells now which is proving just as addicting as the Sugar Queen was. I am also reading The Princess and the Goblin which you can sort of see peeking out around the corner. It's so lovely and refreshing to delve into a fairytale when you're in the mood.
I have been working every day this week at the daycare, and loving it so much! Since it's at a gym there is a two hour limit to how long the parents are allowed to leave the kids with us, so luckily there's not a lot of diaper changing or anything. And the kids are so lovely! They're mostly 2-3, but there are some a bit under the age of 1 too, they're soooo cute! I am working all by myself next week, wish me luck!
Lots of love,
