Today is 2 years since my first date with Caleb. He gave me 2 dozen roses and over the weekend he worked hard with Lars on our produce stand! I am hoping to also sell some prints and cards of my own designs. It will be exciting to see how we do!

Today I found this really neat craft online! I can't wait to try it this afternoon with the kids I babysit. This is the kind of thing that really made me want to be creative growing up. And now I get to do it again! The photos pretty much explain how it's made. Other ideas for in the baggy are cereal, grapes, m&m's, gummy bears.... Anything small and snack like.

As many people are realizing after graduating college now is that it can be a long process to apply to jobs. So small jobs or part time jobs are needed to help pay back student loans. I have picked up a few baby sitting jobs. While some may think it's an annoying or frustrating job, I find it to be motivating and inspiring. Every day I spend with the kids I am forced to use my imagination on their level and challenged to create random stories and places. I also get to see how different families encourage art at a young age. I have a front row seat at relearning how to be a kid. Hopefully this will be great help with my own children's book creations!
