Winter is trying his darndest (is that a super old fashioned word? eh who cares, I like it!) to hang around a little longer. Like yesterday...I took my little boy to a free day at the Pacific Science Center and we waited outside for almost 45 minutes. He was happy and bundled, and snacked on yogurt-covered pretzels while we waited. I think my hands were numb by the time we made it inside, but it was definitely worth it! HE LOVES THAT PLACE! I think any 2 year old would! We had been once before and he knew right where he wanted to go...to see the huge animatronic Praying Mantis :) I love watching his mind work as he figures out what interests him. Soon after, we headed to the Tropical Butterfly House to warm up! A very comfy 80 degrees :) He also had lots of fun making music in a room full of drums and other instruments. He loves to be creative. I think regardless of what we create with, we all have that need within us.
This morning I woke up to SUNSHINE!! Something about sunshine!! It fuels my creativity and just brightens my outlook and mood.
I did something SUPER brave (for me) this past weekend. I'm sure some would say 'Yeah...and?', but it was a big deal for me and I'm proud of myself. I'll share about my little leap of faith in a couple of weeks
if when all goes according to plan :)
But for now, I just thought I'd share a simple photo that gave me immediate inspiration to create 4 new drawings.
Well, this photo and some silliness at my son's recent birthday party. I have all my sketches all done and now I'm working on finalizing their details and coloring them. I can't wait to share them with you!
Are you ever inspired so deeply by something that you just have to be creative yourself? If so, I'd love to hear about it!
