Love Letter Wendesday

fdafad jgjIts love letter Wednesday again. And this week I just want to share how easy it is to spread a little joy. You don’t have to write long elaborate letters in envelopes, you can just write a sentence on a note card.

I was in TJMaxx the other day and I saw this really pretty wrapping paper! Which was actually a great thing because I was trying to think of an excuse to buy it which reminded me that my sisters birthday was coming up!! So after wrapping her presents I didn’t want to waste the scraps.

So I just glued the note cards onto the scrap and then cut the note cards off after writing my love notes!

I like to keep a couple note cards in my bag at all times, you never know when a good time to spread a little love will come along!

Remember if you have instagram to share your love letters: #IOWAMLoveLetters 🙂

To All The Beautiful Mothers

Dear Moms, We all are beautiful. We are all important. As mother’s we have a very special role to play. Unfortunately a lot of us get so caught up in this role that we forget about us and become only artist, writer, rock climber, yogi, MOM. Let me re-instill a fact, that I’m sure we all know deep down to be true. That our most important gift to our children is sharing with them our lives and our love. A happy fulfilled role model is better than an unsatisfied mother who feels resentment for giving up her dreams. Juggling children and hobbies, isn’t always easy but we don’t have to feel guilty. You can still be that fun loving person you were before baby. So you were a wild and crazy party girl?? Okay, so you may need to put away the sequin mini skirts and keg stands every night 😛  But you can still be your care-free, energetic self. Just a more kid friendly version of it. If you love to paint or write. Invite your children to join you. Never give up on your dreams. Never give up on who you are. Share your interest and hobbies with your children. Share your love. Mother will always be your number one title, but remember you can also be artist, writer, rock climber, yogi, whatever your heart desires….. ❤

The sky is my inspiration for almost every creative endeavor I embark on. I love to take tons and tons of photos of the sky and then study the cloud patterns. When painting most of the colors I use are colors that are found in the skies.

Where do you find inspiration?
