Here's a few instagrams from the past week or so. I haven't been good about getting photos off of my phone and onto the computer...I really stockpile on there.
Anyhow, here's sweet little Matilda-11 weeks old and my Aunt and Uncle's new little goofball...

We've had the oddest weather and went from a snowstorm to having our Magnolia trees blooming right away. I love when the kids bring me flowers-placed in my great-grandma's mini pitcher.

One of my newer pieces.
Goofball again.
 Started painting again. Just started an art journal last week inspired by Donna Downey. I am loving the feel of paint under my fingernails again!

Linking up with Jeanette this week.

Product review

As a hairstylist {out of the game for the past few years} I've used my fair share of professional products. I've seen this shampoo bouncing around for awhile but never tried it. Since November I've cut 16 inches off of my hair. Yikes! At first it was nice and bouncy and sleek but as it's grown it's become so blah and flat and just hangs there.
Fast forward to the other day when I was in the supply for a product for my cousin and thought I'd pick up some shampoo since we were out and I was having to use the kids junk-lol. I was initially drawn to the smell-which reminded me of something from my childhood...but I'll tell ya what, guys! Wow. Just a couple days and I am LOVING it. Squeaky clean, smells yum and is bouncy all day! I didn't feel all flat and ick at the end of the day-crazy! So for what it's worth-if you're looking for a new shampoo to try-I love it!

Spring Bloom

Two weeks ago I was in the Spring Bloom art festival in Bloomington. It was my first year so I wasn't sure what to expect. I'd always heard wonderful things about the show but it's sounding like this year it wasn't up to par. Possibly with it being Easter weekend? I'm hoping that's all it was because other than that I really enjoyed it-there was a really nice mix of artists.

Anyhow, here's my booth from the show. It was my first time in a corner spot so I had to do some last minute reconfiguring but I think I like it :) Something about the symmetry...:) {I just realised I didn't get a decent picture with my banner in place-it was hung across the corner black curtains.}
