the diamond that started it all

the diamond that started it all


welcome to my mission is to give you a glimps of my life as a mother, wife, decorator, painter, and active woman. my inspiration comes from traveling, my education, and my family and friends. i have to admit upfront, however, that my "education" does not include a background in english, so please be patient with my grammar and spelling. i am, however, happy to share on this blog what i learn in my daily life from painting and decorating. here you will also find a real account of my struggles, my experiences, and my many reasons to rejoice. april, or the month of the diamond, is when my first and only daughter, mollie, was born. she is the reason i am a joyful mother, wife, and person today. i appreciate your time, and thank you in advance for your advice. perhaps one day you will be reading from my website but for now this homemade blog will do:-)
love, laura

second in sequence

enjoy the slanted photo of...
finally! my second painting, in between michigan and my most recent, of perkins chapel at SMU. 
for those that care, the delay in posting is due to daily life.  a snow storm hit dallas and we had no power for a couple of days, also damaging one of our cars.  it has been an interesting week trying to cope with no power and no car, while attempting to keep our normal routine.  oh, and mollie caught a stomach bug to boot.  thank God for electricity, automobiles, and healing and thank you for your patience.

our newest artist

i assure you this is my proudest mommy moment.  i didn't even have to force it.  mollie climbed into the chair herself at 9 months and began "drawing."  she could care less that there were 100 kids running around her or that elmo was at the birthday party.  back-up, maybe i shouldn't say proudest moment because mollie can be whatever and whoever she wants to be, but it gives me butterflies to think that possibly one day we can make art together.  love her.
