The Artistic Mother: A Practical Guide to Fitting Creativity into Your Life by Shona Cole. You do not need to be a mother to appreciate this book. Her advice on making time, setting goals, and breaking up projects into smaller steps so the project can be completed in a limited amount of time is invaluable. My friends at PaperWhimsy know what I'm talking about. I'm always the last or near the last to finish a project. Since I love photography, I found her concise tutorial on taking great pictures rewarding. Children can be difficult to photograph and she has plenty of advice on catching that great shot! Here is a portrait of my newest godchild Sophia who came to stay with her mom, nanna, and sister Isabel.
