Sean (oldest son) has given me such a hard time as he grew up. Never wanting to take part in anything creative. Wow, look what he does now. Don't ever call him an artist though...
Jared (second son) has become an amazing outdoorsman. His love of nature is captured as he fishes (catch and release) the Pacific Northwest fish. His brother, Sean, and he are determined to catch and release every native fish they can find. You can see their adventures on Youtube at:http://www.youtube.com/user/SKsWhiteOaks#p/a/u/1/XUsDU_BXAg8
He uses his bit of spare time teaching himself to play the guitar and creating marvelous wood crafts with his Shopsmith. Don't call him an artist either. Hmmmm. This is getting old.
Darcy Kay Sartell Jackson (third child, oldest daughter) OK, OK. So I just want to talk about my kids. I guess I have artists in the family whether they want to be or not.
Darcy is a Chef, a creative paper crafts artist , designer, artist, and who knows what else is yet in store.
Texas and Lizzie (her little ones) benefit from her creativity as well. When do you find the time? Breathe, just breathe.
You can visit her latest creations at: http://myartisticventures.blogspot.com/
As my children get older I have to catch my breath at what they accomplish. Self-taught or maybe a little inherited talent?
Summer Heather lakey (Second daughter and youngest) Of course being the youngest gets Summer the privilege of being called "spoiled" by her older siblings. I disagree. She is just different. And How!
A sociology major, painter, photographer and all around artist, Summer leaves the cake decorating up to her big sister Darcy. She took four years to design her very own wedding cake, which then all three Sartell girls put their hand too.
I have posted a complete "How in world we did it" at the following address. Feel free to take my ideas and run with them. I hope you have three months to spare.
Take a look at some of her photography at:
I can honestly say " where in world do they get it?" Lemme' guess... I simply love creative people, whether they admit to being an artist or not! Poor Ron...
See You Soon!
