Prepare my garden soil spring planting time! I did a soil test to see what it needed. Now I'm waiting for the dirt to warm up, put seed in the garden, and get it growing! I may need to double up on watering as we have been getting some really windy days here in Northwest Arkansas.

Meet my students! Meet the students in our class!

"Hello my name is Elizabeth and I am a science experimenter." My daughter had just shared this with us on our daily report for April 2nd. She talked a lot about "my" students and I had to think about what she meant. It occurred to me that it was a play on words. It isn't "my" class, but it is a class of a mine... you know... a class of one or... my class. Perhaps she just had a vision of what she wanted to be a child as a "my student" when she was very little.

When she was about 2 years old, she got a stamp from this stamp set, So many fun stamps for her. I guess she got the "my" from that, because she has used that stamp a lot in her recent art projects.

This is what I chose for her to give me a "theme" to write about for this month. I went with a silly, wild creature theme.

After having a few weeks without much art in our lives because we were focused on getting her out of her room and seeing the end of "her" school year, I was looking for some of my own inspiration. I decided to look at a new line of stamps (by Kathleen) called Kingdom Life.

I was drawn to a bug named "Harriet" the ladybug. I thought this stamp would make a nice surprise for my daughter to find in the mail! She's a princess so I thought this would be just the right "character" for her.

I wrote her an E-mail explaining why I had chosen this stamp set and requesting permission to use it on my projects.I was very worried that she would see this as being just a simple mail art project. She immediately replied and said, "I like Harriet!" and told me that she was glad that I asked to use this stamp for her. She said, "I hope you like the one I made for you, Mummy." I have to admit that I was relieved that she agreed to let me use it, but I still was worried. We recently received a note from her teacher in her 4th grade classroom. In it, she had informed us that she was working on her 4th grade art project. When she pulled a picture from the envelope she exclaimed "Look! I did a butterfly stamp!" It was an ATC butterfly. I was relieved that she chose a stamp other than the one I sent her to make the picture, but I wondered if she noticed that it was my "Harriet." Luckily, she did not recognize it as being my "Harriet" as the paper she chose was a green, so she chose a nice, bright green for her butterfly. I am happy that she liked it!

I was so excited to find this new line of stamps! My daughter seems to be fascinated by bugs as she will ask to hold caterpillars, beetles, ants... she also likes watching caterpillars turn into butterflies. This line has lots of stamps that I want to try out for her. I am ready to see what she comes up with! Here are a few of my favorites.

I think this is one of my daughter's favorite stamps and it has been used in many projects for her so far.

We have a bit of a tradition in our family where each year on Mother's Day, we ask for and/or make a card for each member of the family.

My daughter is extremely close to her dad, so this year's card is extra special.

This is what I came up with using one of her favorite stamps from the new "stamp line." I kept my wording as simple as possible and used several bright colors to make it more fun.

It seems that it was a big hit! It is hard for my husband to believe that there was one person in the family who didn't get a card.Maybe it was because of his friends and coworkers who love to see cards like this one!

This week, I am going to be getting back to the classroom and trying to get my head back in to the regular flow of things in my life. There is nothing like the end of the school year! I miss my kiddos.

My little monster is almost 6 years old! To celebrate, I came up with this special little card for my little one!

The pattern papers are from Basic Grey. I used Martha Stewart's handwriting stencil and write to create a wonderful childhood theme! I hope my daughter likes it and uses it often. She knows that this was just for her.

My daughter received this wonderful handmade card from one of her friends on Mothers' Day. When she received it, I explained to her the meaning of the words, "To love, honor and cherish."

When I heard her say this, I realized how precious it is to my daughter. I could never have guessed at how precious and sweet this card really was.

Welcome to my blog! If you have arrived from the Decosoft Blog Hop, you may want to start over at the beginning here.

I started my blog in January of this year after being asked to blog about Mother's Day from Decosoft. If you would like to know more about this company, you may want to start here. They have a wonderful blog. I'm really excited to see where my art blogging journey takes me! I don't know if I'm ready to actually put together a "blog" per se, but I want to share my thoughts and ideas with you, so this is the blog for that.

I didn't plan to have a "fun" blog like this, but here it is. I don't
