Priscilla ~ Peanut Butter Love!

In honor of National Peanut Butter Lover's Day, which is March 1st, I bring you a sweet little mystery; Are these busy bee friends bringing their party-in-a-peanut-butter-jar IN or OUT the window?

What's your favorite 'side' with your peanut butter?  (I love all of the above).

Oh! and stay away from pb if you have arachibutyrophobia, which is the fear of getting peanut butter stuck to the roof of your mouth.

Hope your week is as smooth as creamy peanut butter!

Ballet - Kelly is in fourth position

I took ballet for a year as a six year old. Grace, balance, long lines... let's just say, It wasn't my dance.
I was off to 7 years of tap instead. Banging out a beat was more my style but still.... I watched those girls with envy as they releve'd, jete'd ... and when they got their toe shoes - the whole dance school knew. It's a magical , mystical life - the life of a ballerina.


This may be why we don't see many hedgehog ballet troupes.  Just sayin.

You can find Heather's portfolio here and her blog here.
You'll find crafty goodness, green projects and whimsical characters. 
What you won't find are tutus flying around where they can stick to small woodland creatures.

Be Mine - Bunny's back. (Kelly)

I know, I know! These are so self indulgent! So pointless - so non- children's book related.
But she's fun to draw. Goofing around is good for artists.

Priscilla ~ Be Mine Week!

...she started out to make a simple valentine card for her true love, but simply got carried away.

Happy Valentine's Day !

Joy- Sticky Sweet

Well, it was painful with this pregnancy carpal tunnel, but here's my sketch of "Sticky and Sweet". I went with my first thought of a bear cub and honey, sticky and sweet in all kinds of ways! The sketch is a bit quick and messy, but I guess so is what this little cub is doing.

I'll try and post a sketch for our next week's topic, but might not be able to. Be sure to check back on the sketches from the rest of  these talented ladies!

Have a great weekend!

These sweet cubs have made mommy heart-shaped pancakes with honey.  They have also turned the kitchen into a disaster! 

Letting my babies revel in the process and production of their creations is something that I struggled with when I was a new mom. I worried about trying to prevent messes and clean up. Three years later I just let it all happen.  Toddlers after all, are fantastic helpers. ;)

Priscilla ~ Sticky-Sweet Week!

On her walk home from school, this little girl finally got the chance to see if her blueberry lollipop would actually stick to her, so she could enjoy it 'hands free'.  !!

Joy- Year of the Rabbit... Baby!

Happy New Year! Here's a quick one from me this week. I wanted to be sure I contributed to this topic because it will be the year my boy is born. I can't wait to meet this little rabbit, and it seems like it could be any day now. I'm a dog and my husband is a boar, both of which are supposed to be very compatible with rabbits!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

It's her Year - She's a rabbit.- Kelly

I read the traits of the "Year of the Rabbit" babies. This is what it made me think of. Like the voice over from the TV Show "That Girl".

 I'm a dog. Loyal, terribly stubborn, and eccentric and no where near as sassy.

Some Bunny Needs to Play More

Hmm, with the Lunar New Year can we start 2011 over?

I misplaced January.

I need to spend more time creating this month and less time working on the biz.

Balance - I'm still searching for that a month into 2011.

Diandra-Year of the Rabbit

I was planning on doing something with a traditional Asian flair to honor the Lunar New Year this Thursday. Then the Great Winter Storm of 2011 hit most of the country, and with nine states under a blizzard warning, I couldn't help but share my Snow Bunnies.
