This Is How I Work

Hello Friends,
I don't know about you but the things I love most about reading other blogs is seeing how they do things....behind the scenes stuff. I like to see what their studio's look like, what their creations look like half finished. That's why I put pictures of my messy work area! It's almost always is a mess. I don't clean it up until I am starting on a new project or until I don't have any more room. Unfortunately, my work area happens to be my dining room. So everyone that visits gets to see what a sloppy artist I am! I am going to work on making it a prettier place after the holidays so look for a photo soon!
I am attaching a photo that I had my brother in-law take the other day. This is my little guy Alex. He refuses to wear clothes when we are home or at his Grandma's. Don't get me wrong...he would strip other places as well but I keep explaining to him that it isn't socially acceptable. In fact, as I am typing this, he's asking me if he can please take his pants off:) I put him to bed in PJ's, and in the morning he comes out in underpants and socks. We went to visit my Grandmother the other day in a nursing home and of course it was 100 degrees. My sister took my nephew's pants off to cool him down (he's only 4 mos. old) and Alex starts taking his off too. I had to explain that Cooper is just a baby and it's ok for him to have no pants on but not 4 year old boy's. He didn't agree but he kept his pants on anyway.
So I figure this photo shows two things about me at once........1. This is how I usually work, with Alex sharing my chair and jumping on my back. 2. My son refuses to wear pants!

Well, I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into my life!

Have a great night.

Good to know...on both issues. How many kids do you have? I have just the two boys, 4 and 8.
