a confident woman ~ from my sketchbook

good friday to you all!

i'm looking ahead at a three day weekend... the day off... a badly needed haircut, a nice birthday dinner for my husband, the beautiful scent of the apple trees in our yard blooming... and maybe even some warm weather!!!  woot woot!
it's also my husband's birthday... our anniversary ... and mother's day.  just a trifecta of weekend activities!

here's a favorite quote from a book written by author renee swope ~ a confident woman ~ which i illustrated in my sketchbook.  it features peerless watercolors {love them!}.  and my moleskine watercolor journal, and a border from my gelli prints!  love it!  i used a sakura glaze pen for the writing. 





"a confident woman knows that even
when she falls, 
she does not have to stay down.
instead
she can reach
for God's hand
and 
rise again." 
 
so true.  thank you Lord.  
amen.
happy weekend everyone, and happy mothers day!
and... we have a new link up for in the studio ... here!  
come join up!
