My little stars

It is getting hot in Texas already and school has one more week to go before summer break is official. The kiddos and I are so excited to get a break from homework. And after the teacher's meeting yesterday where she told me that homework is going to be heavier next year, we are ready for a break. I am setting up a weekly schedule this summer for my own sanity. I think if I make a plan for every day, they won't feel like they have to "pester" me with the "can we do....... today?" questions. It will also be fun to get them to participate in the planning and rewards system.
This is my little stars canvas. Lots of layers and I used a photo that I actually developed in the darkroom from my own film. I am loving the beginning to end process. The three stars represent my babies. One for the pregnancy that I lost many years ago but never forgotten.

Things have been busy the last few months. I have not found much time to do anything but play around in the darkroom some. I have a lot to learn but it is going to be a fun process of learning. I am finding myself needing a journal to write in while out and about. This is my answer. Fun to make and quick and fits in a little purse.
