Hello friends....  I recently did an interview for Oopsy Daisy.  I've made wall art for them for years now.  I always love seeing where it pops up (often times some pretty cool places)!  They also asked me to come up with a craft or creative idea for kids.  Here's a link to the interview  If you visit the Oopsy Daisy home page you'll see they are offering 20% off all stretched canvas art. (August 31st- Sept 3rd)  Shop Away & Happy Labor Day!

Morning Fog

Well we're back from our Disney adventure.  Fun was had by all but it's always nice to come back
home.  This morning it was particularly enjoyable.  We live 3 blocks from the Missouri River.  There is a  park with trails I run on in the morning.  Today it was crisp, foggy & beautiful!  (I love the fog, makes everything look so dreamy & mysterious.)

Birthday Boy

We are heading out tomorrow to take Luca to Disney World.  He will be 5 on Thursday & I can hardly believe how quickly he is growing up.  Seems just like yesterday I thought he was never coming out. (he was 15 days over due...)  We so enjoy watching his interest change, listening to him tell us stories, teaching him new things & well pretty much everything else about him! (said like a mom, right?)  Today I'm showing some birthday art I made years ago.  Enjoy & Happy Birthday to all you Virgos.

(* thought he was going to be a leo like me but, alas he was a couple minutes late)

Happy Little Friday

Do you remember Bob Ross?  I do & when I found this funny little finger puppet on Etsy I laughed (I need to look it back up so I can credit the artist here...)  I remember Saturday's around 11 am being glued to PBS watching The Joy of Painting.  His relaxing voice, his happy little trees, his occasional oval shaped canvas, (even as a child I knew fancy yet wrong) The accepting voice of support that it's all OK. WOW Love him! Sometimes he would bring his son (an adult) on & they would paint together.  Oh, Bob Ross I miss you!

What a World Quilt

I'm currently wrapping up my second fabric collection with P & B Textiles. (available this fall)  I've enjoyed seeing some of the beautiful things people have made.  Antonio recently found this blog
She made a colorful, fun quilt for her son using the What a World fabric.  Take a look. I can't wait to see what people create with the next collection!

Fab Fabric

With all eyes on London lately I wanted to share this really cool vintage fabric.  My friend Gigi collects all sorts of things.  One of them being vintage fabric.  She has bins & baskets full of this kind of eye candy.  I particularly loved these quirky British characters & the fun limited color.  So much variety & humor in this fabric.  Hope you are as charmed as I am with it.

While at Target over the weekend I spotted some of my art.  First it's my number print on the car seat.  Next it's the Circo neutral crib set.  This was on display & looked great out of the package.  So fun to walk the store & stumble upon your art.
