Inch by Inch: my art, garden, and girls

 "Inch by inch, life's a cinch.
Yard by yard, life is hard."
Amen and amen.  

I always feel like I have too many ideas and too many inspirations and too many projects.  I never have the problem of being bored or wondering what to do. Ever.  I think this is a good thing.  But sometimes  it feels like the tiny, daily things take up most of my time and I'm not making progress in other areas.  When really that's a trick and not the case at all.  Every bit of progress counts. 

Inch by inch, things add up to a beautiful picture.
 I've been wanting to get better at my art so I drew on a mug one night while Brett watched PBS and we visited.  This was easy.  I used a $1 mug from Harps and a white painters pen.  
Practicing little watercolors has been fun for me lately too.  I'm SO interested and wanting to learn SO much I have to reign in my excitement when it comes to art.  I'm trying to learn to be patient with having limited time and $$$$$ for online classes and art supplies.  I'm finding you can actually do so much with so little if you put your mind to it. 

This painting was requested by my Papaw.  I was pleased (honored really) to oblige :).
 We're finally starting to see little flowers in the yard....
 The playhouse Brett is building the girls is making progress. 
Isn't it awesome?!
 Inch by inch the girls are getting bigger and louder and sweeter and messier and ornerier and smarter.

 This makes me want to start shoutin' and dancin'! 
The garden is starting to grow!!
:)  Our inches are looking pretty all-right to me.

What's growing in your world?

(p.s.-Did you know you can pin any of my post images on Pinterest? There's always a "Pin It" button at the bottom of each post!  Click that and then you'll be directed to click on the post image you want to save!)


  1. Hi Sara, your lovely compliment about my sunflower photos made my day if you want to send me a message at goddess underscore luan at hotmail dot com. I would love to email you a copy of the photo you liked. By the way that mug looks really good!
