A little boy has a series of adventures and misadventures with a bunch of wild animals. His parents buy him a balloon at the zoo and suddenly he is lifted into the sky. "Oh, that's good. No, that's bad! '' because the balloon pops when it hits a tree deep in the jungle. What do you think happens? Next time you're at the library or bookstore be sure to check it out because it's a super cute little adventure.

Here is a vespa I did on deep edge stretched canvas. I really like these papers because they are all handmade. When you look close you can see the "handmadeness" of the papers because they have tons of bits and tiny fibers in the paper. Also, what's a scooter rally without some matchbook art? I really enjoy using my vintage matchbooks because they are so fun and different. None of them will ever be the same because I use a different matchbook for each one. On these I used an old Alka-Seltzer ad (blue one) and an old Macke Stauffer ad (green one). I think the
M. Stauffer was a tabacco company but I am not sure. That particular matchbook was so old it was falling apart. I was happy I was able to work with it because I really liked the color.

This is a pic of my guys after they have been scrubbed to death. I think something was living in the water... I'm a bad brush parent.
I have two boys that love Star Wars. When I say love I really mean LOVE. Star Wars has been apart of my life ever since I started dating my husband. Now my children are obsessed. They make ships out of Legos, Tinker Toys and whatever else they can find. I hear blasting sounds day in and day out. If you don't know what a Pod Racer is count your blessings! Our cats are also aware of the Star Wars love. Check out Maddi trapped in the belly of a space ship on a mission to capture clones or something to that effect.
She is so used to it she just takes it in stride...whatever.

We will be taking the kids to see Wall-E and light some sparklers. Not much of a fireworks gal but my boys are wanting to spark something. I will have the water hose ready in the event they spark the grass or something. Plus the teenager across the street always sets something on fire.
