Why I love my Husband?

Besides the fact that I find him totally irresistible, with his cutie pie dimple, and sexy British accent, he is such a good man. Ok, taking care of the kids while I have mommy time is just not his up after himself is just not his thing, and of course, sharing his emotions is just not his thing....but

My husband told me that he watched me sleep this morning for an hour, and he said he fell inlove with me all over again. I had no idea he did this, but when I woke up this morning there was a card with breakfast waiting for me on my end table.

Maybe to you this is something your DH does everyday, but mine does not. He does other things for me like laundry, works hard for a living, and goes food shopping for me after work. But without him knowing this (I keep this to myself), I was sad yesterday because my birthday is coming up and I am shocked that I will be 37! I don;t understand how this is possible, as I think of myself in my twenties. I was feeling ugly, fat and annoyed with my self. So the fact that my husband left me a card this morning, just put things in a better perspective.

Just wanted to share this little personal aspect of my life.

New projects....

This pair of handpainted and embellished jeans are for tomorrow's Kaleidoscope Funk Launch....

I started making these for gifts for friends who had babies over the past few months, and then I had a local customer who came by yesterday to pick up her paintings and saw this one I did for my daughter. She ended up ordering one from me (I never priced them and had to think of something quick). I do the basic letters, but this is more elaborate and I have to nail in the letter to the wood board. I may start selling these on my website as a single letter....

Family Day at the Brookfield Zoo........

I am totally inspired to do more animal paintings with Giraffes, Lions, Tigers, Oh My! I will start another one this week when I catch up on orders. We had a blast today at the Brookfield Zoo (somewhere in Illinois- who knows--LOL) and it was such a perfect perfect day. Not too hot, not too cold- just perfect. Just sharing some photos of our day today.--one photo is rated triple xxx (hahah)
