Amigurumi Unicorn Horn

As Miss Monkey Pants is at Preschool today, Pink Ape
volunteered to model for me.  He's a nice guy, that Pink Ape.

I'm not exactly sure when it began, or what inspired her, but Little Miss Thing has been busying herself lately, making paper kitty/tiger/puppy ears to wear.  She sits at the kitchen table and painstakingly draws the pattern, colors it, cuts it out, then tapes it all together to form a three-piece headband with ears.

She unabashedly wears them to the grocery store.  I unabashedly let her.

Ponto Beach, Carlsbad, California (Again)

Funny story:

My four year old's preschool Master Teacher is one of my favorite people. She is ridiculously patient, understanding and full of encouragement. She and I have become friends over the years (she also taught my nine year old). She loves to make things, loves to cook and loves to do things differently. She sees the whole WORLD a little differently, I think. We've talked about The Curious Pebble Project several times, and she always says that one of these days... She's going to find one.

So I'm throwing together a quick pasta primavera for supper, and as I'm gathering things together, I see two things: a jar of Nutella and the dregs of a bag of semi-stale vanilla wafers. And I remember that I keep thinking that I really should scoop out a dollop of Nutella with those wafers....

Nyan Cat Amigurumi (ALMOST with a Pattern)


(Just found this post which I started in JANUARY! Been a little busy around here, whoa.)

I have children. I think I've mentioned that once or twice before.  My Nine-year old is ridiculously computer savvy and probably a little too interested in things like Internet memes and Minecraft and Linux Servers and that sort of thing.

Do Art Daily, Day 20

Just a little preview of what I've been working on for the "Do Art Daily" Show in which I'm making a pebble every day in February for a cumulative show in March. There are 30 other artists also contributing.

Happy Valentine's Day, Take 2...

Seems I wasn't quite done with the love today.

Besides, what's Valentines Day for, if not to make goodies for your sweet'umses?

Happy Valentine's Day!

I've been busy busy busy with the "Do Art Daily" project, but had a bit of time to make these for my daughter's preschool class....

Happy Valentine's Day!
