The Love Box

You can't put a price tag on love, but you can on all its accessories.”- Melanie Clark 

Yesterday we went out to Michael's Arts and Crafts to purchase V.D. supplies (if your mind works like mine I bet you were expecting a different photo!).  Anyway get your mind out of the gutter, I'm talking Valentine's Day.  And we have LOT'S to make. Phoebe and Naomi each have over 22 kids in their class, plus we have to prepare the family mailbox....

We used this cardboard box that used to be home to some Girl Scout cookies.  By the way if anyone out there is interested in buying some, what used to be our dining area is now storing cartons and cartons of them .  All three of my girls are cookie selling scouts these days.  Please buy some and save me before I become a land whale!

Here's our finished mail box.  Phoebe and I worked together and by Monday it will be the box of love!

I've also been busy designing the backdrop for "Seussical".  This is my design and I think I mimicked Dr. Seuss's style pretty well (I don't usually copy other artist's styles, so it was a bit of a stretch for me. )
Anyway here it is, "The Jungle of Nool"...

  Now I just have to do it at 12ft x14ft!

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
