living an artful life

i've wanted to jump back into my blog, but have struggled with where to begin again. it's been so long since my last post. and more than that, i just haven't been disciplined enough about my blog. i know consistency is key....and that is not what i have produced so far for sure.  my problem is, i only feel compelled to post when i'm really "into" something.  so a schedule does not always mesh well with inspiration. 

so here i am, giving it another try, my focus....living an artful life!

living an artful life for me is a way at looking at whatever i'm doing with a more thoughtful eye. finding the beauty, having fun, making the ordinary a little more special. 

so...a couple of recent moments over easter weekend that brought me joy:


 driving past gramma minnie's old house in cleveland! so many memories here of family parties, aunts, uncles, cousins, annual visits to the feast and always a lot of really good food being made and eaten!

 an easter diy i had to try, and much easier than i expected. nail polish and warm water is all it is. just swirl with tooth pick and drag eggs in. that's it! definitely the prettiest eggs i've ever created.  and an easter tradition...pizzelles. the beauty of the pattern and the memories make me so happy!
