The end of Art Camp.  Miss Lily's last day of camp gallery presentation of their work.  It was a nice short reception, felt wonderful to be surrounded by so many talented artist, students and teachers alike.

My project pile is growing.   There are sooo many things I want to get done for the shop but summer is about the kids so these things will have to be conquered another day.

Miss Lily's reading teacher retired this year.  We love Alice and will miss her dearly.  As a going away gift Alive presented Lily with Yoda Man.  Yoda lived on top of Alice's desk and routinely Lily would bop Yoda's head before ending class.  Now Yoda lives near our front door and before got it....Lily bops Yoda on the head.  Yoda Man Alice xo

365 days of iphone : day onehundred&sixtysix

At the end of each day we gather as a family and reflect on our day and say what we are thankful for.  Today I'm thankful for our Meyer lemon tree in front of our yard.  I especially like adding it to my firewater.

Isn't this cool?  It's a pillow case that I found years ago.  I've never really used it as a pillow case.  I've hung it up a couple of times.  It's a great art piece for the wall.  Very folk art.  I'm just amazed at the detailed worked that someone put into it.  Totally a labor of love.  Anyways I've been thinking of adding it to the shop.  I think it's time for it to go to someone else to appreciate.
