Well, here is a very random compilation of journal entries from this past week. The first entry I was interrupted by a child and never finished my thought, if it seems to end a bit abrupt.
Also, I am restarting my Drawing-a-Day project now that I am not tired and pregnant, but I am posting via Instagram instead. My username is @melissajogordon

*Excuse the typos!* I guess that is the reality of the hand written note! Also, I think indulging in fresh flowers is quite important to lift the spirits. These sunflowers are so bright and cheerful!
Madelyne’s/M1’s new hair (and a pretty cool dog-shaped peanut butter banana sandwich)
Sneak peek of my latest project, they’ll be up for sale in the shop soon:
You guys, I have a long way to go to get my shop where I want it to be. My time is so limited, and I am sleepy, so sleepy, but everyday I try to take at least a half step in the right direction. Two new cards and one card set have been officially added to my shop. More to come…eventually.

Part of me wants to reflect on last year.
The other part doesn’t want to bore you with my honey-soaked, heavy nostalgia.
I know I have been an “inconsistent” blogger *shudder* as of late (the worst thing you can do!), however I am determined to trudge on.
The blog has been quiet, but I have been busy working in the stillness, laughing with visitors, and stopping for a moment to stare at the blue, blue Southern California sky.
For now, let me just take a moment to say “Season’s Greetings” to each of you. I hope you had special moments this holiday season, the kind that sneak up on you and leave you warm and tingling and feeling well-loved.
More to come soon.
