Artful Blogging Feature

Hello! Hope your week is off to a great start! Today, I wanted to share the news that the new Artful Blogging is out and my blog is featured within its beautiful pages! I'm overjoyed and very humbled. I've loved this magazine for years and this past January I declared to the universe that  - "One day, I will be in this publication!" It sounded so bold then and I hardly believed it but today I am so very proud to be listed among the amazing blogs in this issue. It's an extra fabulous bonus that Claire's portrait made it to the front cover!

As soon as I heard the magazine was out we ran over to Barnes & Noble to pick up a copy. It is a total trip to open a magazine and see your work inside. It is especially wonderful to see the portraits I took of my children!

Love your desk

My desk has been bothering me. It was full of lovely things but it felt messy and unorganized...sound familiar?

Something had to be done.

While Grace painted outside, I cleared off the entire surface and started over.

I knew the vintage chalk board that I found antiquing needed to hold court as my inspiration board, so that went up first. With a little time and lots of moving objects around, it slowly fell into place.

I'm especially fond of my sting of inspirational images...thanks to Artful Blogging and Boho magazine.

Tomorrow I have to clean off the blackboard...it has far too much math on it for my taste. I just noticed this in the pictures.

I think some lovely poetry would do nicely.

How's your desk looking? Does it need some love?

xo,

Ivy
