Is it a bird, is it a plane...?

No but watch this space.

Celebrating love and passion.

The work of Kim Saunders: Dorothy's shoes from the Wizard of Oz
(Thanks Kim for letting me use them.)

What could be more perfect an image than this delightful pair of shoes by one of our students.

I have been gone too long

I have been gone too long. I don't know if I am the only one experiencing blogger problems but I have had a hard time of it of late. So I have been out of the loop for a while.

Here's a quick catch-up on a long process.
Christmas 2007 ( I have to start the story here) I gave each of my kids a plain bowl that I had made. The idea being that they would paint on their own design and I would get it fired.
Now move forward a year December 2008: They finally get to put brush to bowl. I did a quick pencil guide sketch and let them loose. Then added some black outline afterward to help things along.

Finally Tuesday morning February 2009 my baby bears woke up to this surprise!

Birdy Num Num


My mom always said "good things come to those who wait" in my children's case... and wait, and wait. But my little ones are completely delighted and breakfast is a lot more fun.
