The heat is keeping us cooped up and making me dream of traveling to beachy weather. Just a few weeks until we're there! In the meantime it's a whole lot of fort building, coloring and movie watching going on around here. If you got any suggestions on good family friendly movies for the kiddos please let me know?!? 🙏🏻😉

Missing this sweet girl who is at Camp Grandparents this week learning why Life is a Peach in Ruston 🍑🍑.
To all my Ruston peeps - I’m taking orders till Wednesday night of anything and everything that I will hand deliver to your door this weekend or to the Super 1 parking lot!! No shipping! So if you’ve had a custom order in mind or had your eye on something in the Etsy store, it’s not too late to hit me up!
And to this Sweet Pea, man, I’m learning a lot this week! Like for instance yesterday we were in Hobby Lobby and your brother had one of those candy tubes with the superhero on top that also has a fan. He was trying to terrorize your sister with the fan and she in return was screaming and trying to hurl herself out of the buggy all while I was trying to insert my debit card in the machine to pay. The cashier shook his head and said “you sure have your hands full”. It was in that moment and every moment since I’ve realized how much it is you do without ever being asked. How you play backup in left field to my shortstop, how I just assume you will catch all the balls I miss, and how thankless that job must feel sometimes. So today I say, I see you! I see what you do! And thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for all that you do to make our worlds turn easier! Now go and enjoy being an only child for a week and spoiled by your grandparents!! Lord knows you’ve earned it 😘😘😘😘
My little farm boy. 💙 He goes around our mini farm, cupping his little hands around the heads of our cats and piglets and kisses them. 👨🌾🐖🐑🐈 Either that or he scolds them for not doing what he wants them too. 😂 Two year old boys are pure gold (and dirt!).
New Enchanted Forest Milestone Poster coming to the shop soon! This version has a retro vibe and goes with the latest invitation version for a custom order. Swipe for the coordinating invite.
Sometimes I find myself saying this when I don’t even know what I’ve agreed to. Like when you are in the car trying to order Sonic Happy Hour drinks and the baby is crying and your phone is ringing incessantly and your 7 year old just asked his 784th question of the day. Sometimes you just say “Sure thing butter bean” and hope that you didn’t agree to buy him a car or a boat or a trip to space 😂😂😂#mamaproblems
I think this custom order should be a permanent in the shop, what do you think?☺ It's Monday and it's a good day! The wash is out drying, there's a few orders in the mailbox ready to go, and there's a yellow romper ready to be sewn!🙌 Hope your Monday is good, and I hope you're able to keep cool in this heat!☉
Happy 6th Birthday to our quiet, creative and beautiful girl! Our days are definitely more colorful with you in them and we are so blessed to watch you shine. 🌈☀️

Working on fun things for 2019!!! Now that Shane's home and we can get back into more of our normal routine I'm excited to be back to working on more products I've been dreaming up! 🤗 +✨You guys always inspire me to make new fun things so tell me a product or two of what you'd love to see in the shop...
I've noticed lots of new faces here so thought I would hop on #fridayintroductions
Aside from art + design, I've developed a passion for safe products, cosmetics and healthy food. I love learning more about toxin free living and the challenge of trying new recipes that are both healthy and taste amazing. This all stemmed from the life changing cancer diagnosis of my baby girl, two and a half years ago. It was the most intense, yet blessed time of our lives. We are forever changed, right down to the toothpaste we brush our teeth with.
Since then, I have heard cancer diagnosis after cancer diagnosis among my friends and family. I've known for a long time that God had plans to continue a mission inspired by Eliza Jane. I could feel it in my bones the moment I was introduced to this amazing cosmetics line that my life was about to change. Every time I thought about the potential of sharing our story and changing lives brought me to tears. However, I was extremely reluctant, knowing I would be pushed far out of my comfort zone; doing makeup tutorial videos, speaking in front of people, talking about a way of life that many will be super skeptical about. But I then realized that all of my cons were based on fear and that couldn't possibly be the voice of God. So hear I am, introverted and shy, but taking God's hand and allowing Him to lead me to share what He has taught me @rootandblush
If there's one thing I've learned, it's that God makes me stronger than my wildest expectations through my WEAKNESSES.
I've shared my other passions here, which include loving my family while teaching them and working from home. I am an illustrator + designer and have been creating art for as long as I can remember.
Please introduce yourself and tell me something about you! I would love to connect with you!
Swirly fun with this sensory bottle!
Two weeks with these 5 crazies and I'm only smiling because Shane comes home tonight 🙌🏻 •Taking this picture got me thinking of doing more spontaneous snapshots like this. Nothing fancy or curated, but just us as we are in this moment, in this season right now. •This moment was taken when Dash was screaming, the girls were jumping off the walls (literally off the window sill behind me) and Sage kept getting her paci when I told her she couldn't have it anymore. It's a season of sleepless nights, redundant disciplining, and wild emotions from certain 3 year olds. It's also a season of bonding with siblings, chaotic adventures, silly toddler jokes, and joyful laughter. And thankfulness, always full of thankfulness. •Tell me something...I get asked a lot "how do you do it?!" I normally just smile and nod & shy away from the question not wanting anyone to feel incapable or go into comparison mode. I never want to make our life seem easy peasy cuz it's most definitely not, but I want to start sharing more things with you on how we do life and why. •So tell me...Is this something you'd be interested in hearing more of? Is there more you're curious about? I want this to be a place that shares my artwork and passion for creativity and also a place you can be encouraged, inspired and left feeling like you have the same capabilities as me weather you have zero or 500 kids! 😜 •I'd love to hear what you'd like to know (or not know) so please leave a comment below telling me just that. •Sure love having you follow along! 💛 Now we're off to pick up daddy and smother him with hugs and kisses!

I’ve been trying my hand at succulent gardening this summer, kind of wanting to try cactus next! Right now I’ve got about twenty little baby succulents just starting to seed, so we’ll see if i can keep them alive and expand my little collection.
"It is not until much later, as the skin sags and the heart weakens, that children understand; their stories, and all their accomplishments, sit atop the stories of their mothers and fathers, stones upon stones, beneath the waters of their lives."

These family tree portraits are so much work but I love seeing them come together; imagining the unique, intertwining relationships. 🌳
