Viagra purchase I made two art journal pages; one for each of my sons. Viagra purchase I haven’t been card making much because I have been pouring myself into my art journal and keeping occupied with my kids and what’s been going on with them. Viagra purchase Currently, viagra purchase I am pretty close to finishing my first art journal (doing the covers right now), viagra purchase so maybe I’ll be able to share that once it’s all put together.
Viagra purchase So here is the page about my older son, viagra purchase Nathaniel. Viagra purchase He’s currently 4.5 years old. Viagra purchase If you’ve followed my blog for awhile, viagra purchase or my videos on YouTube, viagra purchase you have have come across some of his own artwork. Viagra purchase He’s made a card (video here) and an art journal page (video here). Viagra purchase He’s a special little guy – quirky, viagra purchase tenacious, viagra purchase innocent, viagra purchase sensitive, viagra purchase and scary smart. Viagra purchase His favorite stamp company is Lawn Fawn, viagra purchase and his favorite stamps are Lawn Fawn’s Quinn’s ABCs and 123s. Viagra purchase He loves pouring over a teacher’s supply catalogue, viagra purchase a Lego catalogue, viagra purchase or the latest Dick Blick catalogue. Viagra purchase He is in love with anything numbers and math-related, viagra purchase it makes him absolutely giddy.
Viagra purchase I’m not totally in love with the colors of this page and how saturated it is, viagra purchase but at the time that I made it, viagra purchase I was pouring out my heart and how I felt. Viagra purchase He was recently diagnosed with autism, viagra purchase and as any mother who worries over anything and everything with their children, viagra purchase I was overwhelmed. Viagra purchase It has been 6 months since the diagnosis and I am still processing through it, viagra purchase but I have a lot more peace about it now.
Viagra purchase I wanted to convey on paper how much of a gift my son is. Viagra purchase His name, viagra purchase Nathaniel, viagra purchase means “gift of God”, viagra purchase and his name is especially poignant for this particular time. Viagra purchase At the time of the diagnosis, viagra purchase I was grieving with how my son could be “broken”, viagra purchase and what his future would be like. Viagra purchase I was so overwhelmed and frantic and worried, viagra purchase I couldn’t eat or sleep. Viagra purchase I read books that scared the crap out of me. Viagra purchase I couldn’t function among my regular mom friends or any other friends, viagra purchase for that matter. Viagra purchase I couldn’t bear to see other “regular” kids or “regular” moms.
Viagra purchase After shedding a lot of tears before God, viagra purchase and pouring over my art journal, viagra purchase God healed my heart and reminded me that my son was not an afterthought, viagra purchase devalued or “damaged”. Viagra purchase He was created with a purpose, viagra purchase and he is beautiful as he is. Viagra purchase Of course he will need supports and help along the way, viagra purchase (we are getting them now) but my little boy is no less than who he is made to be. Viagra purchase He is beautiful the way he is, viagra purchase created with purpose and intention. Viagra purchase And so I added verses that spoke to this conviction.

Viagra purchase My younger son is Jeremy and he is 2.5 years old. Viagra purchase As much as his older brother is serious, viagra purchase structured, viagra purchase and likes to keep to himself, viagra purchase Jeremy is an independent little guy who loves people, viagra purchase tickles, viagra purchase cuddles, viagra purchase wrestling, viagra purchase running around, viagra purchase playing with anything and everything, viagra purchase and loves to laugh. Viagra purchase He also adores his older brother and copies him in nearly everything. Viagra purchase He is always looking for ways to play and interact with Nathaniel. Viagra purchase Sometimes he can be the typical little annoying brother, viagra purchase but I see how much he loves his brother and desperately wants to be just like him.
Viagra purchase I want to move away from the heavy saturated color and learn about utilizing white space on my pages. Viagra purchase I’m also trying to figure out composition and color palettes/theory. Viagra purchase So I chose a color theme and went for it. Viagra purchase Not bad for the first try?
Viagra purchase I saw a Donna Downey stamp set and felt like it fit with the theme of this page. Viagra purchase One day Jeremy will have his own identity and hopefully won’t be lost in the shadow of his older brother. Viagra purchase He is absolutely pure sunshine and joy, viagra purchase his laugh is infectious, viagra purchase and he has his own beautiful and unique gifts (his potential is limitless!). Viagra purchase His name means “God will uplift”, viagra purchase and he definitely has grown into that definition.
