  • 1950’s ranch before/after and a video tour

    As many of you may know we are selling the house that we’ve called home for the past 7 years. While we’re excited for the next chapter for our family we also feel sentimental about leaving the home our babies came home from the hospital in, started crawling in, and gave us shelter through some of the sweetest moments of our lifetime. 
  • Bathroom Update | Florence SC Interior Mural Artist

    One room that we hadn’t touched since we moved in here is the half bath off of our main bedroom and I’ve been dreaming up a mural for the main wall in that room since I first started brainstorming ideas for it!

  • DIY Valentine Printable / FREEBIE

    Valentines Day snuck up on us over here and I found myself scrambling to put together a fun valentine for Nora's classmates in preschool that still had that diy/handmade vibe I so love.  Last night while the girls were at AWANA I put together these simple treats and Nora is so excited to give them to her classmates this week!
  • Mercy + Motherhood || discipling littles || Florence sc artist

    Webster’s tells me that mercy is: compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one's power to punish or harm. And when I frame every decision for my kids through this lens it makes certain that I am A) always putting them first and B) treating them with the same heart posture that God treats me.
  • For the Mama Who Feels Unseen // El Roi

    El Roi. THE GOD WHO SEES ME. I’ve been thinking on this name for God first used by Hagar in Genesis quite often recently. A lot of the time I feel...

    We love celebrating over here, and I love something that keeps the little ladies entertained while I am working so we spend a lot of time both drawing and coloring.  I made some coloring sheets today to keep the girls entertained while I try to put the house back in order after a crazy week of launching my first collection and I thought other moms with little ones might enjoy them as well! Feel free to print them out and color away! 

    If you do end up using them I would LOVE it if you would tag @morganatkinsonfineart on IG in your feed or your stories so I can see your kiddos creations!

  • Practical tips for keeping your little ones busy while you work // Florence SC Visual Artist

    Let me just start this post by saying that working at home with my kids around is no doubt the hardest thing I have ever done. It is taxing in a way that I never imagined. The constant pulling of my attention from a place of creativity and productivity to suddenly switching gears to manage little people’s emotions is the most intense rollercoaster ride I have ever been on and it WIPES ME OUT.

    if from the outside this ever appears to look “easy” in any way to you I want to clarify right here once and for all that it is NEVER easy. Beautiful? Absolutely. Fun? No doubt. A disaster at times? FOR SURE. Super rewarding? 100%. But easy? No. Not ever. Not even one day has it ever been “easy”.

  • 3 principles I’ve learned to embrace while raising babies and making art

  • Raising my studio babies // Florence SC Watercolor Artist

    Motherhood is hard, motherhood + running an art business when your oldest kid is under the age of five is well... next level. ⠀
  • Baby Boy Atkinson // 33 weeks update

    To say this pregnancy has been a blur would be an understatement.  It has been, simply put, EVERYTHING.  Slow and quick,  Hard and simple, Painful and peace filled, defeating and up lifting.  It's been a rollercoaster in every sense of the word and I am just so thrilled to finally be nearing the end of this journey.  We officially have around 5 or 6 weeks until this baby arrives and I've got a ton of work to get done in that time.  There's an entire nursery that needs my attention, some prints and products I need to crank out to have ready for a super special launch next month, and so many snuggles and cuddles to give to my girls while it's just the three of us all day each day.
