Feeling in the mood for Fall, so I created this pattern. It might make a cute flannel fabric one day or maybe a nice wrapping paper.

Here is a little family tree I made for one of my 1000th post Give Away winners. (The names have been changed to protect the innocent!) I am thinking this would be nice in my house, I'll have to add some fictitious children to make the tree look fuller though since we's only three!
Here are some great quotes to ponder on for the weekend. These can inspire, motivate or just plain empower. The first one is a little painful but there is always room to adopt new behaviors. I like 'em. I think I'll work on the second one especially hard tonight. Have a great weekend!
We are what we repeatedly do. - Aristotele
One is roots. The other is wings. - Hodding Carter, Jr.
Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars. - Les Brown

Breakfast is the new dinner.
How about you? Do you like to eat breakfast at odd times?
I am so grateful for very funny friends.

My really good friend Chris Bolton makes these amazing necklaces (she's a favorite of Gweneth Paltrow and Madge!) and I am updating her logo and website. These are two comps I made of a website and I can't decide which I like better. Can you help me decide? Which do you like and why? I would be ever so grateful for your input.

This is the beginnings of an illustration for a family tree. I haven't really found any that are very attractive so I thought I would make my own. I'm just playing with patterns and textures at the moment but it holds promise. However, the way my family is dwindling, I suppose I could actually have a stick of a tree with just a few leaves on it. This thought brought me to the idea of having friends on my family tree because I have a family of friends that has held strong through the storms and droughts and earthquakes of life. Some of them even sticking around when other family members could not. There is something to that, I just don't know how to illustrate it at the moment. Oooo, a challenge is coming on, I can feel it.
How about you? Do you have friends that are stronger than family?
Today is my 1,000th post on this blog. That's not really something to talk about for most people but for me, well, I'm a little dumbfounded the blog is still here and people keep coming back to visit. So, in my gratitude for all you lovely readers, I am having a little give away for my 1,000th post. I will send you any print of any artwork I have posted on my blog if you leave a comment and tell me what artwork you'd like. I'll even see if I can do something custom if you so desire. Anyway, leave a little love in the comment area and at the end of the week, I'll have the boy randomly pick out the winner's name and we'll send you a little art love of your choice.
Pam's art is leaving footprints around San Diego again! Now it's even closer to my hood!

It has been an interesting past few weeks around here. I keep getting the message, in various ways, to slow down and get still. Stop what I am doing and just be in the moment. However, when I do just that, I am overwhelmed with a brokenness that fills me up to the point of shattering. Every single time my cell phone rings, I think for a moment it's my sister on the line. I see something in a store and think, "Oh, Cindy will like this." I wanted to go to an evening church service yesterday and the first person I thought of to go with me was the one person who never will be able to again.

Then the kid and I played a round of "The Game of Life" the Spongebob version after running gobs of errands. I am SO ready for a "momacation" and next Tuesday, I'll be getting one. Whew, just in time!
