we love you Marc James . happy home coming


As some of you know my nephew Marc James has been living with us on and off for the past four years, this last year he’s been here full time.  Today was not only his last day of 2nd grade (on to 3rd!) but today he got to go home to live with his mother!  It’s a happy day because we’re happy he get’s to be with his mom and we know that’s where he wants to be more then anything!  But it is a bit of a sad day for us because we’re going to miss him so.  I’m not prone to exuding feels all over my blog (I do quite enough of that in real life) but I just wanted to share some photos from the last couple years… I tried not to dig back farther, and say how much we love you Marc and how we can’t wait for the first sleepover!!!


just Monday on the way to Cedar Pointe (on my phone)

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
