Video of Max walking...!

Max 17 months - catching him walking! from Catherine Just on Vimeo.

He has been walking for a while now - but is really getting the hang of it. Going about 6-9 steps or walking from the couch to the green chairs. It's amazing. But every time I try to videotape him. I get nothing. Somehow the universe aligned for me to get a little bit of what he does all day long...I thought the cracker would do the trick - but apparently a pool noodle was all he needed ( thanks Michelle! )

In other less exciting news than my son starting to WALK!!!!!!!
I only was able to post 3 journals onto Etsy today. Etsy is being a little fussy and isn't working so I'm going to try again over the weekend.

Here is a peek at the three I posted

Bird with Chairs.

Queen Bee.


You can find out more on the Etsy site. And soon - there will be MORE!

Starting a new business or changing it around feels just a tad like learning to walk. I take a few steps and then I fall down and get back up and take a few more and fall down. One thing I love about watching Max learn new things is that he never takes it personally. It shows me that I have much to learn from this young one. He is wise beyond his years.

Wow! And wow! Yay, Max!!! And yay, Catherine too! It is amazing how the little ones don't take it personally and just get back up to try again. That is a lovely insight, especially as it applies to the evolution of your business at this moment. Struck me as very profound just now. XO

Woo hoo! WAY TO GO! I can't believe he is already 17 months old, and already walking. What a champ!

Your prints are gorgeous!! I love lino-cutting. I learned it here in Germany because I couldn't get any Staedtler Carving Blocks. Now I'm in love and can't go back anyway. Happy creations, tj

we do have much to learn from our children and it's such a journey. My son has aspergers syndrome and although he is high functioning it is far from easy and I get v tired. And I think if it wasn't for my creative business I would go a little crazy at times . . . . I love your journals and it's so nice to hear that you are doing your creative desires and earning a living too :)
