sarahjanestudios Thinking about mermaids this week and loving that these decals have been up for a year and no one wants to take them down yet. My girls still believe in mermaids and I guess this is their proof! (available in the shop... Link in profile) #sarahjanewallpaper #kidsrooms 2d
  •   designlovesdetail Love this! I totally thought I was supposed to be a mermaid as a kid!! 2d
  •   karinhawkes My 4 yo is constantly asking me to draw her a mermaid. Too bad I have no artistic ability! Guess it's time I create something for her from the out to sea fabric I bought... 2d
  •   frauntiek I did my girl's nursery in the out to sea line! It's my favorite! 2d
  •   maidenhairfern Thank you putting clothes on your mermaids and making them modest. 2d
  •   goldamiller @ashdawnfritz for Alice?! 2d
  •   jwilson_12_ @ncgrl5 This reminded me of Miriam and Eliza! 2d
  •   momzilator Octopus and mermaids! Bee signing just for me! @thebeachhouse 2d
  •   kendralydick I would love to see you do a woodland animal/camping series 20h

sarahjanestudios We are wrapping up a month of intense family time, outdoor adventure time, nature time and fun. I am so grateful for a month of teaching our kids about teamwork. About the beauty of this earth. About being together with extended family. About exploring the outdoors and being physically active in the earths playground. Everyday they've had the chance to wake up and be outside in nature, or the big city, or exploring of some kind of body of water. We've still let them have technology time as they've ended the day, but it's always been secondary to their adventures this summer and I'm SO sad for this to end. Sometimes I wish we could just move to a farm and live off the land, and experience some kind of walden or little house experience....just our little family. But, real life calls us back and the lessons we learn here every summer will come with us. But this.... Playing in the river and just "being" with my family... Talking, laughing, teaching, exploring...This is heaven. #summermagic #senecacreek #naturallazyriver 5d

  •   smoochesgracias1 I threw mine out for this very reason. I don't want the numbers to have any kind of negative hold on me. 2w

sarahjanestudios When you find his doppelgängers at the National Gallery of art... #cherubbabies 3w

sarahjanestudios Getting my fill at the National Gallery today. Teaching my kids things like why there is green paint in faces, how things can be loosely painted up close but look tight from far away, and why people don't wear clothes in the "olden days" And explaining why Mommy cries when she sees her favorite works of art! #artlessons #artgallerywithkids PS: this is a new Van Gogh at the National Gallery! It's amazing if you have the chance to see it. @ngadc 3w
  •   brownbirddesigns I love Van Gogh!!! Such beautiful works of art. 3w
  •   louisepeine Wonderful ! 3w
  •   joolee28 I love, LOVE taking my kids to art museums, just for those amazing discussions! (And I cry frequently too...) :) 3w

  •   artbylynnemillar My most favorite place!! Have you discovered the tiny gem of the freer/sackler, right by the smithsonian castle? It has the most beautiful sargent, breakfast in the loggia, and a gorgeous room of whistlers. And no one is ever in there!!! 3w
  •   artbylynnemillar ...which means you can happy weep in peace at all the beautiful brush strokes! 3w
  •   sarahjanestudios @artbylynnemillar oh amazing!!! 3w

sarahjanestudios It's messy but it's mine! I just finished a week of solitude where I was able to illustrate a picture book I'm working on, work on more fabric designs and finish up some other projects. Not to mention eat healthy, get sleep and have time to ponder and write as I make plans for the next year! All things that take 30 times longer to do with kids... Or not get to at all! I've never been away from my kids like this before, and it's been life changing! I adore my kids... Don't get me wrong... But stepping away for a bit so I can work without them feeling neglected feels so good. I'll be stepping away from work while I head out to be with them to enjoy summer camp together and beach! Sometimes balance looks like little things each day. Sometimes it looks like big chunks at a time. And sometimes a little of both #studiospace #artsebatical 3w
  •   louisepeine That's what Janet gave me every year I got to use the condo in St George! Kudos to your Mom and the best hubby! 3w

sarahjanestudios Whew! That felt good !! And in other news, I'm taking a Sabatical of sorts. I'm off social media, online stuff and creating like mad in the studio (sans kids!!) It's a gift I know I won't get for a long while, so I won't be popping my head in for a while. Feels sooooooo good. Internet/social media fasts are awesome! (And I'm throwing in a nutritional cleanse too!) Hope you are all enjoying your summer! #socialmediafast #studioblitz 4w

sarahjanestudios I just witnessed an amazing piece of history! In 1948, during the Soviet/German Blockade, Gail Halverson from Salt Lake City, Utah was a pilot during the Berlin Airlift, and on his days off, he would see the children in the streets of Berlin, impoverished and without anything to cheer them up. He decided to tie chocolate bars to hankerchiefs and drop them down to the children of Berlin on his transport missions. He became known as the #CandyBomber and would (without permission at first, and with his own means) drop candy to the children once a week. It's an AMAZING story, and one that makes me teary, to think of the children during such devestating times. Especially children of the men that he had been fighting against just a few short years earlier. Its' an amazing story, and he went on to win the Congretional Gold Medal for his service. And just this afternoon, during our town's Freedom Festival (which I would argue is the most amazing in the country) Gail Halverston just flew his WWII bomber plain over Orem Utah, Dropping chocolate bars tied to hankerchief parachutes for the children below on his very last Candy Bomber run. He's 94 years old. The whole city was there it seemed, and the sky was filled with WWII planes. What an amazing thing to honor this man who gave a symbol of love and service to those who needed it most: the children. I hope you all have a wonderful Fourth of July weekend, and I hope we all get a chance to think of those who have sacrificed so much for the peace in our nation, and the peace in this world...all for the children of our nations. #happyfourth (picture from bombardier @jpswenson flying with him just now over Utah County) 4w
