allthingsbelle Can we chat for a minute? My kitchen is destroyed because of these, but they are sooooo worth the chaos! Mini S'more Cupcakes. Chocolate cake from scratch. Lightly toasted marshmallow frosting. Dipped in @wiltoncakes S'mores candy melts and topped with graham crackers. ️ If you need me, I'll be shoving my face with these. 11h

allthingsbelle The prompt today is climb. We don't climb mountains alone. We climb with the support, the knowledge and the faith of others. Pray for Nepal 13h

allthingsbelle Pandora is blasting country music, chocolate cupcakes from scratch are baking in the oven and the tiny destroyer is throwing his breakfast and howling "uh oh". Have no mistake, I am fully aware and heavy with that these are the good days. #reallife #itsagoodlife 14h

allthingsbelle The prompt today is new. New is scary. New is exhilarating. New can provide you more than you ever dreamed. 1d

allthingsbelle I tend to post selfies when the world has gone to shit or it's super awesome. Today is neither. 2015 has not been the better year we had hoped, but my word for the year is - hope. And today, I'm full of it ️ Hope your day is full of hope as well! 3d

allthingsbelle The prompt today is travel. A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are for. Or hot air balloons. Some days require more courage to travel forward than others 3d

allthingsbelle One arm holds the sick baby suction cupped to my hip, the other arm paints. Painting is sanity. #atbpaints #acrylics #sketchbook #portraits 3d

allthingsbelle Blasted - those side perspectives are not my strong suit. Today the prompt is fold. I found this fun takeout purse from one of my favorite designers, @katespadeny . And now I want Chinese food for dinner.. 4d

allthingsbelle And everyone is still snotty with sore throats. While movies play all day, I will sneak in some painting play time! The bottom left is my favorite so far! #gouache #atbpaints #inprocess #paintingaday #painting #instaart 4d

allthingsbelle I have just a few more days to finish Toro. And I'm sure it's all kinds of bad manners to love your own quilt, but bad manners and all - I love him. This is his back side #inprocess #atbquilts #quiltalliance 4d

allthingsbelle Today the prompt is sprinkles. Today all 3 members of my rebel army are sick. They aren't cuddly sick - they are grumpy, old man sick. Today I want a milkshake with sprinkles, but I'm lactose intolerant. Sigh. So I painted a delicious milkshake with sprinkles from @brookedujour feed. 5d

allthingsbelle Kiddo has been so excited about Earth Day for weeks, I knew I wanted to surprise all the kids with a small treat. This took about 30 minutes for dipped and decorated Oreos. (Disclaimer - I keep Oreos and a rainbow of candy melts in my baking pantry) Have a sweet Earth Day! 🌎 5d

allthingsbelle Our school day is done and the baby is napping. We each have a needle in our hand and joy in our hearts. Last Sunday a woman I know well enough was quite ugly about the idea of homeschooling. I will never try to convert, I will just enjoy the love and peace we have in our home. Everyone has their own right path, this is ours #homeschool 6d
  •   vintagefern I have a lot of respect for mothers that homeschool. It is definitely not for me. I hate it when people are mean and ugly about things. 5d
  •   allthingsbelle @vintagefern thank you! I am just sad people have such awful thoughts about something they've never done and something that works wonders for us. I'd be the first to be honest that it's not for everyone, but difference in lifestyles is what makes the world awesome (or at least in can be to those that embrace it.) 5d
  •   jennilynyoung Love seeing all the pictures of the peace, joy, and love that you create in your home with your family. You are one awesome mother! 5d
  •   tambam1975 I totally look up to you and @jennilynyoung for homeschooling. I couldn't do it, but those that do, amaze me! 5d
  •   kdfallgatter I hear yA-I had a similar experience a few days ago. Ugh .... 5d
  •   jennilynyoung Thanks @tambam1975. I think you are one great mother to three amazing boys and a super wife to Alex. Happy families and happy homes! It's what we are all working to build day by day. Many different ways and many incredible examples. 4d
