good friday has arrived and it couldn't have come at a better time. i'm worn out. this is the busy season at my work with new fashions being developed, line reviews at retailers, tons of new car seats to be photographed and lots of new packaging to be developed. i feel as if i'm meeting myself coming and going. so after a very long day at work it's so nice to hide away in my art room for a bit, puttering in photoshop and letting the creative juices flow. the above photo is of a flowering tree across the street. i love it's delicate, thin petals and the sparseness of the blooms on the limbs.
this quirky photo is of jenna, kyley and caysey holding onto the clothesline at my folks house. they are the cutest little models and so cooperative about posing for all my silly ideas!
mama and papa duck returned this week as they do each year, landing in the back yard and eventually making their way to the east side of the house. mama has taken up residence behind the asiatic day lillies where she will lay her eggs and be our constant neighbor for the next few weeks. someone at work asked me how i know that it is the exact same pair of ducks each year. i told him it's just my belief. how could it not be the same pair? they do the exact same ritual each year and she nests in the exact same spot. i actually find it rather romantic, don't you?
and finally, this is jenna digging for worms in the back yard. i'm not sure how the idea of digging with my bitty shovel came into her head but once it had she was all over grandpa like a wet blanket to get the shovel out for her. she was quite the trooper and dug way longer than any of us would have imagined she could. she was a bit dismayed when grandpa said they were moving the dirt across the yard to our flower bed. she didn't want to separate the worms in the wheelbarrow from their family in the dirt pile. grandpa reassured her that all the dirt was being moved so eventually they would all be together. she's such a dear heart and she never fails to make us laugh and smile at what she says.
time to jump in the shower and head to indiana. i'm taking megan, jenna and ben out to lunch and then visiting my parents. i bought a gingerbread-type bunny house for jenna and i to decorate together. what fun!
take care my friends and have a wonderful easter weekend!
