The new year
Our newest (my most favorite) installation piece. I found this a couple weeks ago but finally after the whirr of the holidays was able to think, " I want to take a picture of that," and then make it to the wherever the camera was at the moment, retrieve it and take the picture. Yes, I know this seems to be a very basic operation but with all that has been going on outside my head combined with all that was floating around inside my head, the execution of this seemingly simple task continually was sabotaged but some other firing neuron which led me astray.
The first painting project for the house. This was the very beginning of a leaf pattern I made for the wall near the entry. I used a clay based, no VOC paint and I love the way it turned out. The paint is flat and velvety, I will definitely keep it as an option for our other rooms. We also have a new chalkboard wall in the kitchen between the pantry and fridge for the girls to play. It had to cure for three days so I have not bought chalk. So we need to get some of that and two "unrasers" (Emma's term) so both girls can have one, according to Sadie.
I love this one Emma captured of Nathan and I doing something nerdy at the main frame as we like to call it.
