My Life on Instagram

I love Instagram. I love capturing a moment. I love seeing the details. I love the beauty of the everyday. I love the reminder of the little things.These are just a few of the things I’ve captured on Instagram over the last couple of weeks.

Now that spring has sprung, our sandbox is no longer under a couple of feet of snow. The sand is at a perfect slightly wet, mold-able state. The girls just can’t stay out of it – not that I’d stop them. This is what they’ve been doing the last few afternoons.
I’ve been trying to participate daily in the Tinkerlab Sketchbook Challenge. Since we’ve been spending so much time outdoors, a lot of my sketching has been done on the driveway, like this 1-minute challenge sketch. I haven’t been able to participate everyday, but I’m enjoying the chance to draw and stretch my creative muscles.
This, my friends, is my favorite sign of spring. My tulips are poking their way out of the mulch and I couldn’t be happier.

Sewing. It’s kind of my thing. I’ve become addicted in the last couple of years and this year I decided to make both girls a new dress for Easter. This is Miss First Grader’s. I’m nearing my deadline and I still have one dress to go. Ack!


We’ve been doing some of the TinkerSketch Challenge together. Drawing on foil day was way too much of a fun idea to do by myself. The girls and I sat around the table one afternoon with my Sharpies and sheets of aluminum foil. This is Miss First Grader’s masterpiece.
I’ve never, ever been able to capture a good sunset pic. Apparently, all I needed was a smart phone. That’s what I get for being behind the times! Thank you Instagram for the pic.
