Sleepy Sundays: Beyond the Line

Landscapes are one of my favorite things to paint or design when it comes to wall art. Right now, I’m working on a few of these and am unsure which ones I’m going to keep.

This is the first one in that bunch. The look was inspired by how this area close to us looks after a thunderstorm at sunset.

What have you been up to lately?

Have a peaceful Sunday

7 Years

It’s been 7 years since we put the first card in the sky.

So much has changed.

We almost had to close between this year and last. Somehow, running on miracles, we were able to save this place. &While things are still somewhat uncertain, I am grateful for this opportunity to continue what we are trying to build on.

Thanks for flying with us.

Today is an odd day for me. For the past 14 years, I’ve had to deal with this day not only being the anniversary of my mother’s death, but her birthday as well.

When I want to celebrate her life & keep her memory going, that sudden sadness still tends to creep its way in. Understanding a lot of the roller coaster that is losing someone that close to you, I’ve been able to help others over the years.

For those of you that ask but rarely get an answer:

This is how I deal.

This has always been how I deal, cope, whatever you’d like to call it. Art is a therapeutic tool for me as much as it is a passion. Though, if you’ve been following here a while, you probably already know that.

I’ve got so much more to vent, but not here. We’ll save that for another Daydreams Diary.

Just know I care a lot about so many of you.

This one is for my Mom. 14 years and I still miss her like it was yesterday.

Happy Birthday, Mom.

Tomorrow is my mother’s birthday. It’s been so many years since she’s gone now. Yet, she never fails to enter my mind with a memory or make me laugh from one. I was speaking to a cousin of mine recently that feels just the same about her. We both wish she was still here with us to laugh. We miss her.

Whenever I decide to do a little tribute piece for her, purple hues often find their way in as they were here favorite. There’s a tendency that I also stick some sort of flowers in there as well since they remind me of her.

Have a peaceful Sunday

Sleepy Sundays: A Glow in Your Eyes

This weekend we are both happy and grateful since our son is finished with his school year. He has made so much progress and completed so many of his goals this year. He is an inspiration to us sometimes just as much as our family is to him.

Despite our hardships, I am grateful we can continue this business & I can keep designing. I love this little family we created and the larger ones outside of this one, and of course the one I came from.

This design is a background for future projects, but for now I’m still adding it to the gallery as wall art.

Have a serene Sunday ❤️
