Art & Disney

When we were at Disney in April I knew I wanted to make sure and check out Mary Blair’s beautiful tile mural in the Contemporary Resort. Seven stories high the mural consists of 18,000 hand-painted tiles!! Below are a couple of photos I took at The Polynesian of concept art by Mary Blair.


New Friends

I already posted about these guys on Instagram…but thought I’d share here. I’ve been working on a little story with these characters and have been drawing them for a few months, but decided to bring them to life with some clay, fabric, and paint. I’m not finished, but they are fun to work on now and again when I have some time. There is Cry-Baby Ghost…he doesn’t talk, just lots and lots of tears as he is always getting hurt (or thinking he has some new illness), then there is Cobweb the spider. She’s a needle work expert. Knitting and crochet are her passions, no surprise with all those arms. Then there is Granny the head of the house who keeps everything running smoothly. Then there are the cookie people always causing mischief of some kind or another.

Just Two Words: Sewing & Diamond

I am a bit behind on posting my Just Two Words Projects, so here is one from a couple of weeks ago. Jessee chose sewing and I picked diamond. We decided to make a simple mug design that week because we each had a lot going on. I admit I wasn’t super into this design and changed things a bunch of times before throwing in the towel and settling for this one. Still its always a fun challenge to see what we can each get done.

Molly’s Birthday Party!


On Saturday I had a little birthday party for my gal Molly. She couldn’t decide what she wanted to do for her big day, so I told her if she picked and day and gave me a guest list I would throw her a party at my house. Our friend Page baked her an amazing coconut cake, and we had some snacks and dips, and her favorite boozy drink of Huckleberry Vodka Lemonade. Mostly it was a nice excuse to hang out and spend a day with friends.
