The Arnolds ventured out to the public pool this week. All was well until it came time for the usual pool check. The boys, being public pool virgins, had never heard of a pool check. They grumbled as they climbed out of the water and baked in the sun. The beautiful, cool liquid beckoned to us as the lifeguards set to work.
TheWiseOne: “Mommy, have you made another blog post?
Me: (sheepishly) “No…”
TheWiseOne: “We should change the name of The Arnold Weekly…”
Me: “… to The Arnold-Whenever-Mommy-Feels-Like-It?”
I know. I’m bad.
I’ve spent my blog vacation being productive… kind of. Here is a short video that basically sums up the month of May (and perhaps every other day of my life as a mom). All moms will be able to relate to this.
DISCLAIMER: This adorable woman is not me, but you can rest assured that I am equally adorable… only there’s more of me to be adorable. 😛
So, yes. I was productive…. kind of.
And here’s where the “kind of” comes in. I bought a pair of white, canvas shoes, took them home, and doodled my favorite things on them with Sharpie marker.
I posted the shoes on Facebook, and the response was awesome! My friends loved them and wanted a pair for themselves, too! So, I started an Etsy store: Canvas Hart
The “Hart” comes from H (for Holly) + Art = Hart.
I’m super excited to see where my new hobby will lead me! There’s something so fun and gratifying when I make these cool illustrations on shoes! ❤
Here’s to making June an even more exciting and productive month than May! 😀
