oh goodie, goodie

I was going to wait to share this you until I had more details but I was just way too excited!

I just ordered my first birthday gift of the year (since anyone who knows me knows that I get the birthday month and not just the birth-day).

Remember my boasts and brags about Amara's first "real" drawings? Well, Dad2Amara gave me the thumbs up to visit a local artist that I have raved about for months.

I met Jennifer of Magic Dog Studio during a shoot for work. Not only does she have some phenomenal designs but she can take an original drawing from your child and turn it into a magnificent piece of jewelry! I'm having one of Amara's designs made into a necklace for Mom2Amara. When I have my necklace in hand, I'll take a picture and post it for all of you. It takes a few weeks to create, so hopefully I'll have it in time for my birthday!

And BTW, if you want to see another great artist I know, go see my cousin at Watercolours by AB!
today's good: Well considering I didn't wake up until 10, I guess you could say sleeping in is a good! But I'm sure there are more moms like me out there that feel that sleeping in either means 1)you're sick (which I do have a horrendous cold) or 2)you just slept away time you could be doing something productive, like housework. A mom's work never ends!
today's bad: I have to work the evening shift at work today and then turn right around to be back in around 6 a.m. Grrrrr!


  1. I want one... I'm going beg for a thumb print one with all kids (when the baby comes) from John. Let me know how your's turns out!

  2. What an adorable idea! I can't wait to check it out!

    Glad you got to sleep late! Lu-cky!

  3. So cool! TFS I'm definately going to ask my little one to create a drawing of each of us for a necklace... I love them! :)

  4. Sunshine, Jamie, and Makita, I promise you won't be disappointed! The work is impeccable.
