Dots and Stripes
I am happy to report I got my photo retaken and it didn't take that much time. It was one of those things where I was dreading it more than I really needed to. Now it's on to editing them, the sale will be coming soon, I promise.
Birkley's teacher sent home the best book for me to read last night. It's called "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds. She was right in thinking I would like it. It's about a little girl who thinks she can't draw, but she makes a dot and things take off from there. Eventually there is a gallery of her artwork and it's all dots. Like I don't already paint enough dots, but this book makes me want to paint more.
And here is one more Christmas present I received this year. My striped sock creature above. It's from a book called Stupid Sock Creatures by John Murphy . I got the book and a kit from my brother and sister in law, I have been sewing him for the last few nights and finished him up last night. He's super cute isn't he? I think I will raid my sock drawer and make some more, the kit comes with a book for even more sock creatures. Yes, I had to add my own beads for his eyes, I couldn't just use ordinary buttons.
Alrighty, it's off to the gym before the snowstorm of 2010 hits. To quote the local news station, "A winter storm is barrelling towards Atlanta", now this translates into we might get an inch or two of snow, but around these parts that's big news. Being a former Wisconsin resident, I thoroughly enjoy watching the news and seeing all the drama that an inch of snow provides.
Have a great day!
