This Hodge-podge post is what I have been up to in this week. My creative time gets interrupted by spontaneous Spring cleaning and fixing up. It has been a very busy week and little time to myself. Here are a few glimpses of what I have been up too.
A "progressive" painting. Whenever I do have a few minutes to myself I have been adding paint to this canvas, here is a portion of it and I am beginning to see some things develop. I started it on Mother's day and will tell you more about it soon.
This next picture is the part of a t-shirt knit top sheet I cut a giant circle out of and soon you will see the coolest poodle skirt a kindergartner could have when she rocks around the clock on concert night.
I also had to take some time and clean up a small enclosed porch off our kitchen. It is the entrance way, hence mudroom, dump for things that need to go to the garage...you get the idea. It was also a party location for cobwebs and sand...we have sandy soil and it gets everywhere! So, not a cover shot of any magazine...but cozy!
This old green tote has served as a centerpiece for bowls of paperwhites at Christmas, an herb garden, a rock display and now a nature shelf on the porch.
Looking for another fun thing to do with an old drawer, add sand and toys and get hours of play. This table top sandbox is as fun for adults as it is for kids and we have been playing in it almost year round for 2 years or more now. (the frog sign I painted when I was a kid!)
The most exciting package arrived yesterday. I have waited what feels like a lifetime to make the next leap I am making...and it is all in the box...and has consumed me! I did not even open it until today and it is the most remarkable thing that I think money can buy. Anything better is not for sale. You will have to wait just a little longer though.
Because right now we are waiting for the tooth fairy! Yes, this little angel of mine has finally lost her first tooth. She has lost it the most elegant of ways too, my fairy princess bit into a chocolate covered strawberry then exploded with a light from within. "MY TOOTH, MY TOOTH CAME OUT" "MOMMY CAN YOU REALLY LIVE A DREAM?" "I FEEL LIKE I AM DREAMING" Pajama Girl is close to the last in her class I think to losing a tooth, yet older than a lot of her friends who have lost them. She has been besides herself all day, dancing around like a cool kid. She earned her right of passage to the tooth fairy experience. Her bedroom is set for the grand ball of tooth fairies to come. She even designed a tooth on her light bright thing to use as a guiding light. Sleep tight me love, there will be a celebration of fairies as you sleep. Twinkly dreams everyone!
