Checked Off My List

I find great satisfaction checking things off a "To Do" list. It has been amazing to me how long it takes me to get things done around here. Keeping up with the day to day chores plus cleaning hardly leaves me time to do the "extra" stuff. That includes the "to do" things that I actually find joy in doing. I don't paint very often or very well, but when I do it is very therapeautic. I sketched out this canvas before Brooklyn was born. (about 6 months ago) My Mom painted some of it for me while she was here helping out in October. Since then, the painting has been sitting in our dining room. I can finally say that as of yesterday, the task is checked off my list! I had no idea it would turn into a 6 month project, but it did. Now, I can move on to the next task at hand. No telling how long it will take me to catch up on printing pictures out and putting them in an album.

Allison, you are so creative. It looks awesome! I just finished a canvas this week as well. It took me several months to finish too, so don't feel bad. Great job!

Hey Al,
That is so great! You should make them and sell them to all of those not so good painters like me! Her room is so sweet! We miss you guys!
