Pepaw and his Tractor

When I was little, I loved riding with my Pepaw on his tractor in Brandon, Mississippi. It was one of the highlights of my time there with my great-grandparents. I wish I had a picture of me riding on the tractor out in the back of his property. My Pewpaw is my Mimi's (grandmother) Daddy. And my own Dad loved his Pepaw so much, that when he became a grandfather when Ella was born, he wanted to be called "Pepaw" too.

And fortunately, this Pepaw also has a tractor of his own. ;)

Mimi and Donovan

It's moments like these that I love to take pictures. Sometimes you just know when a picture is going to come out great, because the moment itself is just that special. This is my Mimi holding my baby Donovan at about 6 weeks old. It was taken on Memorial Day weekend.

Mod Podge does indeed rock! I have used it for so many fun things in my personal life and in my classroom. And if you ask my friend Rose Anna, I like the smell a little too much. ;) The Country Chic Cottage is hosting a awesome MOD PODGE ROCKS GIVE-AWAY. The give-away has a bag full of mod podge goodies, and also includes the new MOD PODGE ROCKS book with projects and instructions on how to use this amazing stuff! Go sign up to win!

A year and a half later after working in corporate America as a graphic designer and living through my OWN REAL LIFE "OFFICE SPACE" I got certified as art teacher. I have been teaching since the fall of 2004.
