sarahjanestudios A shout out to all mothers with young children: Today I have been especially reminded about how important it is to cheer each other on and lift each other up in this sometimes exhausting, sometimes daunting phase of motherhood. As much as we love it, it's hard. And today I've been thinking about how we as women can do so well to encourage each other and give each other pats on the back, because we never know who needs it. And because we are doing the greatest work in the world. It is so easy for a woman's work to go unnoticed, or be unappreciated and even looked down upon. Even by us! You all know what I mean. But today I'm especially grateful for all of you good mothers out there. Give another mother a compliment and spread the love. Love and hugs! #motherhood #justbecause #thegreatestwork #sarahjaneembroidery 1d

sarahjanestudios This thought has been consuming me lately. And it's been changing the way I think, and do things.

As I've been focussing on living more diliberately in all aspects of my life, this thought has been my anchor. Life is so full, isn't it? While I'm constantly recentering and focussing on my priorities, it's easy to feel like it's all consuming! All good things mostly:) but even too many good thing can be daunting!

But then I remember that "this" is what I was designed to do! And it's amazing what that simple thought can do, and how it has the power to change where I put my focus.

Whatever your "this" is, know that you were designed for greatness and that you have access to everything you need to be who you were designed to be!

sarahjanestudios Ink Bottle vs. Kindergartener. Ink bottle won. #mynewstudiospace #ialwayswantedabrowntable #oops 5d
  •   ankepanke ie = or 5d
  •   kidgiddy Ouch!!!! Have you tried getting some tacky stuff to put under the bottle so it sticks to the table? (Usually the ink bottles have a bubble underneath - so it wouldn't lift it up and tip). 5d
  •   kariknell What a day. What a week. 5d
  •   kidgiddy my mom used to do a lot of calligraphy. She gave me most of her supplies and I have wondered often how I could feel ok with my girls using full bottles of ink. 4d
  •   sarahjanestudios @kidgiddy oh she wasn't using it:) she just decided to do art while I was away from my work:) 4d
  •   kidgiddy I figured as much. I was just saying that's how I came up with the idea - trying to feel ok about my girls having open bottles of ink and hovering less worried it would spill. Hopefully your desk can be spared. 4d
  •   maryannparsons It's got that hand-rubbed antiqued glaze look!!! 4d

sarahjanestudios There are many disadvantages to having a house and yard under construction for the past 4 years. But there are many advantages. Like having access 24/7 to all sorts of "things" lying around waiting to imagine and create with! #thinkingpositively #cantwaittobedone! #lovethisgirl 6d

sarahjanestudios Two things: 1) I'm blogging again... Did you know? And 2) today I talk about my struggles with Post-Partum Depression (and a good healthy mix of adrenal fatigue, anxiety,etc) and what I've done to manage the load. I'd love to hear your thoughts! #ppd #ilovemyposse #familyphotosuccess (photo by @tarabbutler photography) 7d
  •   janes_blanket 1) your husband looks like a young dustin Hoffman. (That's a good thing!) 2) ppd and af both sucks bigtime. I've been in recovery mode for 5 years now (and added one more baby). 3) creating is the bat way I've found to get out of that dark space in my head and let some light in my soul 7d
  •   kariknell Why do we live so stinking far away from each other??! 7d
  •   thimbleblossoms Gorgeous family! 7d
  •   jennpiron Can't wait to read! I suffered PPD severely with #1 and moderately with #3(the last) Fantastic family pic! 7d
  •   molly___oneill Not ignoring all the other stuff (hugs! prayers!) but I have to just say that your hair looks fabulous in these photos, my dear. 7d
  •   borupkim What a good looking family. 6d
  •   tizz526 Thank you for sharing. I was in a major rut after having no2. It's so real, but rarely talked about. We need to lift each other! Hormones are so crazy and not something you asked for! 6d
  •   harmonyprovo I love this picture, this family! 5d

sarahjanestudios I love adding to this BE collection of prints, and would love to know if there are other BE traits you'd love to see! I added Be Friendly and Be Patient this summer... Are there others you'd suggest? (Picture from @hellowonderful_co after her package of prints arrived) #kidsroom #illustration #wallart #BEprints #sarahjanestudios 1w

sarahjanestudios Friday art lessons. As much as I love having a business out of my art, nothing gives me greater satisfaction than teaching my children how to be artists themselves. #stilllifeinprogress #artists 1w
