The Artistic Mother by Shona Cole

Ok, I ran across this on another blog that I surf...Shona Cole.  She has some super cool ideas. Check her out when you get a chance! You can purchase her book at Amazon with this link here.

In the review of the book on Amazon this is what I found~

Are you a busy Momma who loves art but can never fit it in? When you have kids to feed and errands to run, finding the time to create meaningful art can be difficult. In The Artistic Mother, Shona Cole, mother of five and mixed media artist to boot, helps you make the time and space in your life for your artistic passion while incorporating your love for your children into your art. Shona guides you through the Artist’s Workshop, a 12-week course that includes step-by-step instructions for making artwork inspired by your children. You’ll also be introduced to seven other artistic mothers from whom you can draw inspiration and encouragement.
