How My Family Follows Their Art

Our family is into all different types of art and since I studied fashion design, I LOVE shopping for new clothes.  Art and fashion go hand in hand in our household and oftentimes, they blend together. 

One of our favorite things to do as a family is go to the local hardware store on the weekends where they do kid’s craft workshops.  We build whatever kit is available that weekend; sometimes a birdhouse or a tool caddy.  After the project is put together, we get to our favorite part which is PAINTING!!  My kids love to draw, but painting really lets them let loose and brings out their creative side. 

Occasionally we make HUGE messes and ruin our favorite shirt, but I try not to worry about it too much because it leads to MY favorite pastime of shopping!  I am a major shopaholic, so I love buying new clothes.  Gymboree is one of my favorite brands.  They make such adorable collections of clothing that are affordable and very well made.  Not only do they already have good prices, but they run awesome sales all the time such as the Spring Markdown Event where you can get up to 60% off on the cutest clothes for your critters! 

I am a Crunchy Mama of 5 rowdy boys and 2 sweet girls! I also gave birth to a baby girl in January 2016 for an awesome couple as their surrogate. I married my awesome husband, Brian in October 2016 and we are located in a little city outside of Dallas, Texas. I am a jill-of-many-trades. I run a laundry service, do custom sewing and even sell lactation cookies to my locals. I love to shop at thrift stores, take showers without an audience and spend time dreaming of a life off the grid! Follow me on Instagram for behind-the-scenes photos in the life of my crunchy family!
