Sometimes when I find an artist or interesting person I want to know more about I see if they have a blog or a flickr account. Then I dive in and try to find out who they are or more about their lives. Often I find them to be so very magical and inspiring. Or I find myself trying to relate to what stage in life they are in. Kind of like reading a good novel. The books and authors I love tend make me feel as though I am the main charater and I am going through what they are going through in that moment...even if I have never been in those shoes.
Then today I stopped and wondered what do strangers who come across me on the web (my blog, flickr, etsy shop) think of me and my life. Is it magical to them like so many are to me? I do not plan on changing who I am or how I do things but I do wonder. Who do I seem to you?
I recently dumped the memory card on my cell phone (that I have had since Aug.) and found so many fun shots...mostly of my little guy. When we go and do fun things I still have my cell phone camera- which is quite spectacular if I do say so myself - even if I forget my real camera.
So some highlights of my wonderful, magical little life with my family for whom ever would like to enjoy them too. :)


I take each day as it comes and try to make the most of it!

You don't know me but I've been following your blog for a while. I love your art and I really loved when you did that entry on how you work, which is something that always fascinates me about other artists. I also like the snippets of you life; as you say it's like a story. Tara :o)
