Back To Original

Well well well, hello lovelies - it's been a while... How was your weekend? Mine was... I was sick and I'm still sick...

Anyway, today I want to talk about my dilemma. I have this blog which talks about my business (painting) and everything that inspires me to create beautiful things. I also have a family blog which I talk about my family and everything that touches my life. The thing is I realized it's becoming difficult at times to post between two blogs.

So, I ask your opinion - should I combine the two blogs? If so, would you still read me? I've pretty much made up my mind, but wanted to hear your opinion on it.

Any suggestions and comments will be greately appreciate it - Have a lovely Monday!!

Children Book - The World of Eric Carle

I'm a mother of two beautiful girls who love to read - well, I'm the one who read to them, but they love books. And I must admit I lovepicking children books for them. One of my favorite writers/artists for children book is Eric Carle. His book is full of colors and different shapes and funky animals and flowers. His world is so unique and filled with fantasies - I love his drawings.

My children pretty much growing up seeing his art along with his stories and learning numbers or concept of shapes, etc. So I decided to share some of the books that my daughters own in their bookshelf.

My Very First Book of Numbers: This is such a cute book - you have to match the numbers and the fruits. This is the book my daughters first learned numbers.

ABC: Cute alphabet book with fantastic pictures - I think our book is missing Y and Z because our youngest daughter ripped it while reading it (or should I say playing?).. The Sounding Block: It makes sounds when you put the right animals together - oh boy, the girls loved it so much!!!! It's a great baby shower gift too:)

A House for Hermit Crab: One of my daughters' favorite story - my daughter already knows every word by heart... Cute Cute story..

The Tiny Seed: This is another favorite story of the girls - very sentimental though.. The Very Hungry Catapillar: Oh boy oh boy, don't we all love this book??? It's so cute and I still remember my oldest used to cheer for joy every time we read the last part -- the butterfly!!!!!
Flash Cards: They are all wrinkled and bend because we played with the cards so many times...

Opposites: Interesting way to learn the concept of "opposites" - "old - young" "tall - short" - and the pictures are awesome!

**My Wish List***
The books listed below are my wish list - I want to get them for my daughters. They are fairy new and the colors are so pretty too. I can't wait to read to the girls (I enjoy it as much as they do too)..

So, tell me - what was your favorite book to read growin up???

My Girls' Room

I have been trying to re-decorate/design my daughter's room for the past few weeks. And I saw this photo - isn't this such a cute idea using tu-tu? I so want to copy and make this table for them.

I think I need to either make new shelves or buy another dresser to decorate all kind of cute stuff that the girls have collected. They are all in the large tote bags, but it will look lovely if we line them all up neatly just like in the photo...

I had painted this last week for my daughter's classmate. They loved it!!!! I have three other paintings this month - I LOVE LOVE painting, it gives me peace....
