I recently discovered Yupo paper... it's actually plastic (and many of you might know that I actually really dislike most plastic things for environmental reasons). It's kind of nice though because if you mess up, you can wipe the entire thing off with a damp rag (something that has caused a LOT of expensive paper waste). Although this did lead to a very strong warning on the etsy listing for this piece not to leave it out near wet grubby hands or in a moist bathroom! Ha! It's obviously not great for everything but for abstract art, it is lovely and fun. 

I've been obsessed with painting again lately. (You might have noticed, heh). It feels SO so good to paint. I think while I was pregnant with Molly I was so tired and then I was sewing and knitting and I just can't accomplish everything in a day, regardless of how it looks on instagram. Also, we have been so sick this winter. I feel like it's annoying to complain because we ALL get sick, but our house has had illness that hit everyone 15+ times since September! GAH. I mean I get that people told me Molly starting a big daycare centre would come with germs but it really has gotten to a point where I feel somewhat... defeated. I really hope that summer will give us a much needed break. 

I am also obsessed with plants!! We have a bunch of houseplants now and they are so cute and I move them around to different windows and water them and am probably gonna kill them with too much love, although so far they seem happy! AND in the garden there are all these perennials and spring bulbs popping up! EVERYWHERE!! Like every garden and in the grass and there are even lilac trees! IT'S THE BEST SURPRISE EVER!! Like, thank you thank you to the people who lived here before. You obviously loved spring as much as I do. I run outside every single day and run around and look at all the new things growing. It is so exciting! 

One downside of spring is that our house is leaking water in three places. :( Two leaks in the basement and one on the roof of the garage. We knew there were leaks when we bought the house, we were kinda just waiting to see what happened. And now there is some water. Yup. 

This was a nice one-sided chat. Thanks for reading, guys!
