sadeeschilling It's the last day of Kindergarten and First Grade! Trying to soak in these moments so that it won't someday suddenly feel like their "growing up" has snuck up on me...even though it already feels like that a lot of the time. #foxes 21h

sadeeschilling I've been spending lots of time drawing these sweet friends and this week put their story through the wringer in a challenging writing workshop. They deserve the best story I can write for them, so it's all worth it...even if I have been pushed to eat more chocolate than usual this week! 1w

sadeeschilling I love this photo of my mom holding me as a newborn. Having my own babies has eased the pain of losing her in a small way, but it's been hard, not getting to watch her be a grandma and have my girls know her. When I look into my mom's eyes in this picture, it helps me feel a bit closer to her as I remember that I'm walking in her shoes as a mom to three littles, that I'm feeling what she felt even if we can't talk about it and share that connection right now. I love you and miss you, Mama! 3w

sadeeschilling I've been missing my scissors lately, so I've decided to try making a little collage every day. Here's one inspired by my daughter's drawing of a bird with rainbow wings. #sketchbook #kidlitart 3w

sadeeschilling The first layer of a new illustration...I love this part. In my mind, I can see where it's going, but I'm not yet completely sure how I will get there. Hopefully, the mystery of the process will enhance the mood of the final artwork! #kidlitart 4mon
