New phone!

I just got Raffi’s Baby Beluga cd and I am obsessed.

This is my favorite song:

All I Really Need is a Song in my Heart
Food in my belly and love in my Family
All I Really Need is a Song in my Heart
And love in my family

And I need the rain to fall
And I need the sun to shine
To give life to the seeds we sow
To give the food we need to grow, grow

All I Really Need is a Song in my Heart
Food in my belly and love in my Family
All I Really Need is a Song in my Heart
And love in my family

And I need some clean water for drinking (Drinking)
And I need some clean air for breathing (Breathing)
So that I can grow up strong and take my place where I belong

All I Really Need is a Song in my Heart
Food in my belly and love in my Family
All I Really Need is a Song in my Heart
And love in my family

All I Really Need is a Song in my Heart
Food in my belly and love in my Family
All I Really Need is a Song in my Heart
And love in my family

All I Really Need is a Song in my Heart
Food in my belly and love in my Family
All I Really Need is a Song in my Heart
And love in my family
Raffi: All I Really, Really Need
Love in my family
Raffi: I got to have it. I really need it.
Love in my family
Raffi: All I Really, Really need
All I Really Need is Love
Raffi: All I Really, Really Need
All I Really Need is Love
All I Really Need is Love
Raffi: Mmm, She Loves You. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
All I Really Need is Love
All I Really Need is Love
All I Really Need is Love

1.   Giving is so much fun! I love finding the perfect gift for someone. I also love making notes of what friends and family mention wanting or needing throughout the year and then giving it to them for Christmas!
2.  Receiving is nice, especially when its thoughtful and useful.
3.  The best gift I ever received was the amazing but simple Christmas my high school boyfriend surprised me with on Christmas morning. Money was tight with my mom and I that year, which he knew, and he went the extra mile to let me know he was thinking about us. I’ll never forget the kindness he showed that year and I hope to do the same for others me in life one day.
4.  The best gift I ever gave was hmmmm I don’t know. Perhaps the photo collage I made for my bestie a few years back?
5.  Something intangible that I wish I could receive is I’d really love to fly or sing or draw.
6.  Something intangible that I wish I could give is sunshine on a rainy day– everyone and everything needs the sun to thrive and grow. I would love to be able to shine the sun on those in need any day of the week. 

7. The one gift I always wanted as a child, but never got was hmmmm, I don’t know. I was pretty spoiled. I did always want a tent, but never got one.

Hawke is now nine months old! He is pulling up on tables, chairs, and especially the dishwasher door when its down. He recently discovered the tupperware cabinet and as a result practices his drumming most everyday. He has my eyes, Tripp’s mouth, and our happy spirit. He likes collared greens, spinach, and peaches– a southern boy at heart, despite being a Colorado native. He is a blessing.

My little family of 2 + me, had many great adventures this weekend, including a Saturday morning visit to the Horsehoe Craft and Flea Market. We printed all of their promotional flyers and posters and donated stickers, which is how I had found out about it.

Talk about inspiration! This great event had eye candy of the handmade delights around every corner. From vintage furniture, to letter press cards; upcycled Children’s clothes in retro fabrics to handmade purses and soy candles presented in beaker glasses (thinks 7th grade science glass)… I was so inspired.

So inspired in fact, that I spent my Saturday afternoon sketching out my first silk screen print. I am super excited to start laying it out on the computer.

Then, Sunday the hubby bribed me with promises of pancakes, if I joined him at some yard sales. We scored some fabulous vintage drinking glasses, which were definitely printed by hand, as 1 of them has a misprint. The hubby is most excited about his green crystal candy dish, black crystal dish, and white crystal ash tray (think your great grandmother’s house). But what I am over the moon excited about is a fabulous score I made in the form a long, vintage winter coat with shetland wool collar and matching belt. As soon as I drop if off at the dry cleaners, I will most certainly post a photo of it on here for you all to see!
