family coloring

My kiddo likes to ask me to search for images that he can color. Not always a success. We found one of Skylanders Hot Dog but Wrecking Ball was a bit harder. 
I eventually found a small b.w drawing and doctored it up for us to color. Then we had a fun little coloring contest. Daddy spent all his time and talent on hot dog so he skipped Wrecking Ball.
I'm adding my version of wrecking ball. Hopefully you can figure out how to print it. I don't know how to add it as a file to download.

spring clothing!

The tulips have bloomed. The rain has warmed up. And the light weight spring clothes are already hitting the sale racks.
I'm feeling pretty feminine as I check out my haul and see many brite colors and florals. Even a couple more hotish pink striped shirts that I didn't find online images of.
I almost didn't bring home the "toothpick" pants. Love the color. But these Polish legs are more like drumsticks than toothpicks.
As I walked out of the dressing room and spotted them on the sales clerk and her words of inspiration were "Be Brave" I sure will! and I'll be wearing them with black just enough to cover a little of the tush ;)
I fell in love with the comfy sooper-light sweaters at Madewell. I went a little overboard getting a few. But I keep stuff a looong time.

So. Two stops. My local JCrew and Madewell. My BYOB (bring your own bag) was full and I called it quits. Now I just need somewhere clean to wear this stuff to-- ie not my clay studio.
Today I'm wearing thrift store jeans and college hoodie as I finish this post and head down to trim mugs.

A new day

How I wish I could start every day with a poppyseed muffin. Top eaten 1st of course.
