I just joined my sister's art journaling group. So since I haven't posted FOREVER, I thought this would be a good starting point. Everyday she gives a prompt, yesterday's prompt was: Take a picture of the area you most frequently create in. Do you like it? Do you wish it was different? I snapped this pic yesterday evening. This is mine & Gavin (hubs) studio. I LOVE this space, but I am always struggling to stay some what organized. (Note the huge pile of papers, upper left corner) My on-going goal is to get better organized....someday it will happen. I'm... Continue reading

This is my, it's been a great day of rest, so happy to begin a new week, face. A post spring break, catching up on being all together and being at home kinda day. I have so much to be grateful for! It's so good to reflect, and look forward to good things coming our way. The studio was a major WRECK from me scrambling to get things taken care of before leaving town for a few days. Finally tonight, I was able to pick up, clean off, throw away. It really is amazing the feeling I get after getting... Continue reading

Coyote Calling... Kennedy, Rivers & Scout idolize their daddy. Rightfully so. I couldn't ask for a better father to my children. Gavin is very passionate about hunting, he was raised hunting & it is just part of his nature to want to go out into the forest and shoot something. He is doing his part to conserve nature & wildlife. This may sound contradictory to some, but there is a definite need for animal population control. Varmint hunting is one of the ways to do this. Gavin & his dad "Papa" took the girls out & they had a successful... Continue reading

I have decided: MY blog doesn't need to be chronological, or methodical. I am a this and that kind of girl. So, for now, my blog will be very RANDOM. But, potentioally this will enable me to throw my inhibitions about blogging aside and I will feel free to DOCUMENT this little life of mine. That being said... After Christmas (which was awesome & will be blogged about at some point) We headed to my parents beach house in San Diego. So much fun was had & good memories made, they must be remembered. PROOF: beach bikes & such: Gavin... Continue reading

To put it mildly, things around the ROONEY household have been, well let's just say, BUSY! We are all enjoying this busy life of ours. We're learning LOTS (from our mistakes) as we go. No matter how crazy things get around this time of year, it's always nice when the big day is well with in our sights, the last few gifts are being rounded up & all the preparation and planning is about to be rewarded. There is nothing like Christmas morning. Both as a kid & as a parent, it really is such an amazing day! To celebrate... Continue reading

What an amazing experience SPARK no.3 was. I was inspired by the beauty that was all around. I can not put into words the appreciation I felt for the countless hours that went into making it all possible. I was schooled by women who are just beyond my creative realm. (I can only hope to be close to their realm someday) I came home with a new outlook on the CREATIVE PROCESS, thanks to the amazing Mindy Gledhill. I learned SO many fun, new things I would not be able to dictate it ALL back. Many thanks go out to... Continue reading

Scout really enjoyed making rock sculptures. Gavin, being the awesome dad he is, made sling shots for the girls the night before our church (ward) camping trip. as you can see, the girls had lots of fun with them (sarcasm) Gavin & Bro. in Law Dave, just had to test them out... ...no, but really, they LOVED their sling shots. Even more than shooting them, they loved that their daddy took the time to make them with them. Love that my girls hero is their DADDY! I'm lucky to have such as amazing hubbs! LOVE that guy!
