Inspired by

I'm inspired by my children's art today. Watercolor painting and chalkboard drawing by Lucy. Window art dinosaurs by Will. We recently renovated our kitchen and dining room and one of our favorite additions to the new space is our chalkboard wall. It has provided hours of entertainment so far.

Speaking of inspiration, have you seen Karin's house (of Eddy and Edwina) on the Cookie Magazine website? What a nice home she has!

And also, today is my mom's birthday! Happy Birthday Mom if you are reading this!

All this inspiration makes me want to sew, so I'm off to do just that.

Thanks Mallinkowa, Angie and Mary-Laure and Esti...I love hearing your comments! It makes my morning that much cheerier!

Esti, if you decide to do a chalkboard wall it takes about 3 more layers of chalkboard paint than the paint can tells you for good coverage. Then you have to let it cure for at least two weeks, but the end result is worth it!
