“Life is the flower to which love is the honey” -Victor Hugo
Hi there, welcome to my blog! I’m a West Coast girl transplanted to the Prairies, a busy, happy mother of two who loves to paint, cook, write, and run. I am starting this blog as a medium for creative expression – something busy moms like me often don’t have the opportunity to do. Besides, who doesn’t love to look at or read something beautiful while eating something delicious? This is what my blog is about, reaching out to other moms – busy moms just like me who strive to pursue their own passions while raising a happy family.
That said . . . I started my career in the sciences with degrees in biology and nursing, but I’ve always been more artistically inclined. I realized painting was more than just a hobby when I began receiving requests from people who wanted to purchase my art. I created the Chrysalis Art Studio for this reason. Please have a look and contact me if you’re interested in a painting. I also do a limited number of commissions – limited because, like every other busy mom, time is at a premium, and through experience, I have discovered that commissions take much more time to create as I try to fully express what the purchaser has in mind for their personal piece of art.
Now on to food! Food – good food – is another passion of mine. Please stay tuned for delicious family friendly recipes. Our family’s tastes are eclectic, but I’m guessing so is yours! I plan to blog a little about food, great recipes that I always use, and those rare gems of recipes that get passed on from generation to generation.
Another thing I love to do is write. That experience of turning a blank page into something rife with feelings, images, sights, sounds and smells is like no other…actually it is very similar to manipulating a blank canvas, or an empty pot. I guess that is what ‘creativity’ is all about! Please stay tuned for excerpts from my novel….I hope you enjoy it!
Well, that’s it in a nutshell, have a great day, from my family to yours!
