The Dragon Flies Again

This fantastic dragon was given to me by an amazing artist and friend, Bill Kheel. He made it for my oldest daughter.  It’s suppose to be her riding the dragon but it was created while I was still pregnant.

Art on the Walls

In August I finally created a space for the girls to paint. I always wanted them to “Jackson Pollock” a large canvas. My secret wish was to end up with some cool, modern, inexpensive art to hang on my walls. That day the girls created the paining that now hangs in my bedroom. I love it and…
