Inspired by a friend ..

So, needless to say down time for a mom is hard to find and usually the last thing I want to do when I find it is anything actually! Most of the time during naps I vegitate and read blogs online, read, bake, straighten up ya know that kinda thing but starting next week .. drum roll ... I am gonna PAINT:) I really like to paint. It's kinda like therapy and I never do it until a get the itch like every few .. years .. ha. However, my friend Lindsey (a serious crafter/sewer/painter .. she puts most moms to shame) posted on her blog elephantinmypocket.blogspot.com a painting she recently did of her family tree .. and she researched ancestry for it -- um yea she is one of those super motivated mommies:) So, I am posting this to keep myself accountable because I am going to paint our family tree .. stay tuned for pictures ... Here are a few pics of the last painting I did ... I am no pro but I do like to do it ...
