Mum of 2.

Just a quick blog post today, because I have a sick Miss 4 :( She seems to have a tummy bug. I'm really getting a feel for what it's like to be a Mummy of 2 now. Today I have 2 babies wanting cuddles! 4 is still considered a baby right?

I'm missing painting terribly. Last night when both kids were asleep, I even pulled out a canvas and started sketching up a piece that I've had in my head. 15 minutes later Baby A woke up and wanted to be fed, but it was fun while it lasted.

In the very rare moments now that I do get a minute to do 'work stuff', I'm answering emails, getting print orders ready, and doing paperwork, which doesn't leave any time for actually putting paint to canvas. Slowly but surely I will make time for it though.

Our sunflowers have bloomed in our backyard! They blossomed a couple of weeks ago actually, so they're kind of starting to wilt! Still waiting on the other flowers though...

We grew this!

 It's Friday everyone! Enjoy the weekend! x

Meet Baby A!

It's been a big couple of weeks! Hence my lack of blog posts etc lately...but let me fill you in.

On the 26th of last month, we welcomed a beautiful baby BOY to our family! 'Baby A' came along at 10:14pm, weighing 8lb 8oz. He is just perfect, and we are so excited to have him here.

 Since he was born, I have been in and out of hospital with mastitis :( which is hopefully clearing up now. The rest of the time has been spent with my little family getting used to being a family of 4. :)

For now, I'm taking "maternity leave" of sorts...although my online art shops are running as per usual - with orders being sent as normal. I'm taking a break from commissioned paintings for the next few months, and when I get the chance, I will only working on pieces for an upcoming exhibition in August! (More on that later!). So far it's been 2 weeks with no painting and I must say that although I'm mostly distracted by other things, I am feeling rather fidgety at times and feeling the need to pick up a paintbrush! 

All in good time though, all in good time....
