Etsy and news about my Husband!!


Having my shop open in Etsy again..for exactly one week today, by the way.. has really made me miss having a shop in Etsy and I am so glad I am back! I just listed the above Live and Love Mosaic and I am going to list the daisies below tomorrow..

And I am really excited.. a friend of mine commissioned me to do a custom piece for a baby's room.. so, I will be off to the store this afternoon to purchase the frame for it.

And How was Mother's Day for all your mommies out there? We had a nice visit in San Antonio with my parents and brother's family.. I will post some pictures, just haven't downloaded them yet!

And in other news.. My hubby graduated college this past weekend.. I am so proud of him, it was a long time coming..and he has worked so hard for it.



He is such a good man. I could not think of a better father for my children or husband for me. And even though he has been the sole provider for the past 4 years, he has not given up on obtaining his degree. He has worked tirelessly semester after semester, studying on nights and weekends, all the while doing more than his part helping with the kids.. getting up in the middle of the nights to care for them.. and me.. through 2 pregnancies.. I was not always a bundle of joy myself.. but, he did it. He inspires me to be a better person..
So thank you to my husband, congratulations and I love you.

Kristin, I seriously want a piece of your art work. I see that Daisy one in our home. We need to "talk" about it...Please! I have been longing to hang something of yours in our abode for toooo long now. Congratulations to your amazing husband. So happy you have a good man! I told you, the two of you have inspired me and given me reason to "keep HOPE alive" in my own life. I won't give up now! God bless him...what an absolute gem. And being the wonderful woman you are, I'm not surprised you found each other! It takes two...and the two of you are a beautiful team! xo

Congratulations are in order. Not many can do what he did, working, studying and helping you take care of the family at the same time.

By the way, I love the daisy mosaic!

Congrats to your hubbie. I know how much work is involved in going back to school as an adult and I really respect those who can find the balance between pursuing their dreams and raising a family.

I love the work your doing with mosiacs. I really think you have found your artistic voice here.
