Lets try this again!

Well, its been a ridiculously long time since my last blog post and a lot has happened since then! We’ve moved to a new state, had a global pandemic and I’ve become a working artist. We still homeschool, craft, create, still cook and bake and love spending time in our garden… that garden is just in southern Alabama now.

For a while I consider shutting down this blog. I felt like I was going in a new direction and maybe this just didn’t fit anymore. But, as I painted and shared snippets of our life, our garden and my art… it statred to feel like maybe instead of an ending for this space it was a new beginning, a new chapter, a new season.

So here we go! Hi, my name is Lauren and I’m so happy you’re here. I’m hoping to post at least once a month, maybe more. My heart is to share more of my art in this space plus some tips I’ve gleaned on fulfilling your creative calling while mothering your precious ones. I will defiantly still be sharing crafts and recipes, because creativity doesn’t stop when I walk out of the art studio.

While the world has felt like its raging around us, even right outside our doors at times, the creative rhythms of home and art have kept us grounded and focused on beautiful things, things above. I hope you will find encouragement and inspiration here. I hope you will ask questions and share tips and advice too, because if months of lockdown has taught me anything, its just how very important community is!
