We cannot even begin to imagine what the people in Newtown, Connecticut are going through. As parents to 3 kids of our own, our hearts hurt. I am fighting the urge to go pick my son up from school right now. In fact, I started cleaning his messy room that I'd been nagging him about all week to make me feel a little better. It's funny what we as parents feel guilty about when we hear something like this. Some things in life just are not as important as we feel they are.
Our hearts and our prayers go out to the kids, the parents, the teachers and school staff. Not that any time makes it any better, but we especially feel heartbroken in this holiday season. May your angels be looking down at you, in peace. :(

Not only can I create awesome pics with my son, but I've found a way to create quick mini vision boards and inspiration boards! I think it's pretty obvious, but that second one is a vision board for a studio I'd like to have one day. :)
Here's a vision board I create before I had the iPhone:
So for a while now, we've done Italian Sundays where we start cooking a sauce from scratch early in the day. That coupled with our Walking Dead and Boardwalk Empire shows, quite a nice Sunday tradition indeed! Well, with the seasons over for the time being, we are continuing our food tradition and decided to up our game yesterday by making ravioli from scratch as well. Came out really tasty! It was a LOT of work though, and next time we'll be starting earlier. My hands and arms are nice and sore today! You can find the recipe HERE.
Carlos rolling out that dough!
Our cute uncooked raviolis! We used a mason jar for the shape.
The end result! AW YEAH!
And Carlos's parents brought some garlic bread. yum!!
So I have to say that the final episode was OFF THE FRIGGIN CHAIN! I stayed up late after watching it 5 times over and over again to create this portrait of Richard Harrow. I just had to. It's available as a print at our SHOP.
