“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

mish-mash & birthdays

 I hope you're doing great lately..
I've not been around because
My allergies have never been this severe before!
I thought it was a really bad cold at first but, no..
the gorgeous trees outside started dropping piles of fuzzy green blankets everywhere.lol!
I began taking claritin which induced a wonderful bout of narcolepsy.
I was falling asleep watching t.v...
or in the car... 
nodding off while going over vocabulary words with Helena..
It sucked!!
I finally found a medication that works 
so now I'm all caught up on everything I skipped while conking out randomly..haha.
So the whole time I was feeling out of it
I was definitely not creating any art..
Starting a painting or a project, then stopping it, because sleep would prevail became normal.
I'm happy to say that I was able to get a painting completed..or very close to it anyway:)

This one is called,
'Morticia's Garden'
She's acrylic, color pencil and a little bit of marker.

So, this Tuesday is my girl's 9th birthday!!
The time flew by.
 We went from this: 

 To this: 

In no time:)
We've had a very intense time lately...
but this girl, the love of my life, has made it bearable.
She's my little shadow and my biggest cheerleader. 
& after my health scare last May
I'm so grateful to be able to celebrate a new year with her.

I'll be back in a couple of days...probably sick of frosting (but probably not, hehe)
 and ready to create more art.
I hope you all have a beautiful week.
See you soon!


  1. Happy 9th Birthday to a very lovely young lady. Glad all is better and you two can celebrate. xoxo Oma Linda

  2. Happy Birthday to your darling daughter!!! I am suffering from allergies, too. My dr. prescribed Zyrtec and it has helped me more than anything this spring. I take it at night, and it helps me sleep.

    I hope you're feeling better soon!


  3. Glad you are back and I am sorry you got attacked my allergies and then meds. That's never fun.

  4. I am very glad you found something that worked as much as expected. I know what it is to be falling asleep (or talking funny) because of medication, not fun at all.

    Your girl is precious. Happy belated Birthday to her. And since a bit of time has gone by since this post, I hope you are feeling human by now. ♥

  5. Pretty girls! Ugh I have some allergies this year as well. I've been sneezing and all that nonsense. I've heard allergies are cumulative so I guess that makes sense. Love Morticia. The eyes are gorgeous!!!

  6. BTW my doctor took me off of allergy meds and now I'm taking one tablespoon of local honey and it has helped better than anything else. The trick is that it must come from no more than a twenty mile radius from where you live. :)


thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it:)
