Cutting Here & There

I am not fully back into my studio yet...
for one reason you know, for another you'll know later.
but I have been dabbling with cutting lino, just in little tender-hearted bits here and there,
here's one in progress.

It Would Have Been Her Day

I know I may seem normal, I am back to instagraming, to blogging (not quite to the studios yet)
and no doubt there is beauty and love ricocheting off the walls in our little home...
but there's still a massive hole, that we have to mostly try our best
to ignore right now for self-preservation,
if we don't we'll fall into it's gaping all consuming black despairing depths...
so we're doing our best to concentrate on all that love bouncing around us still.
Today would have been her 4 year homecoming...
on this day 4 years ago we adopted her, our first shelter baby, our sunshine, our Tee-Tee & baby girl.
She was only 5...she should have lived another 5 at least...she was so healthy, until she was not.
I miss absolutely every thing about her, so much so that I can't breathe and I feel weak in the knees.
Especially our nightly snuggles...without them, without her, I am not 100% me.
I miss you baby girl. Forever.

Seed Collection

Do you collect seeds from your gardens?
I do, every single year, I take cuttings from every plant...enough to share if I want to.
I don't know if I'll manage to grow anything from them,
but there was something satisfying, cozy and warm just in the possibility of it!

Flynn's Deck

This was our rebuild of the kitchen deck, Flynn's deck, this past summer...we had been wanting
to fix it for ages not only to refresh it but also to make it so that Flynn had a view through
3 new windows, with a clear rain-proof roof for those summer evenings outside with hot cocoa's & twinkle lights & a small bump-out addition with a full-view area for the buns & a spot for the bbcue!

I usually help with every build we do for our little home but a bad knee injury at the beginning of summer pretty much had me act as the designer and spectator! Until mid-summer when I was
able to break out the color & paint, even than  my guy still had to do the high ladder parts!
I am pretty happy with my design, my man did an awesome amazing job & our Flynn LOVES it!

Healing Food

I went for almost a week eating next to nothing when Teela was sick,
than 3 solid days with nothing at all after she left...So my body is quite out of whack right now...
I am trying to get some nourishing good foods in as much as my shrunken tummy
can take to get back on track...noodles are always kind to my tum...and lots of green mint teas!
What do you find heals your body when your trying to heal your heart???
