It is Maili's birthday and she threw...with much help...a fantastic Alice in Wonderland tea party....Madison was not to sure about it at first but then she really liked having tea at a little table. Jill and especially me, dressed up pretty crazy and Madison looked at me and said " That's not right"....
This is the easel that my dad built me when I was 4 or 5. I am so glad to have it still to share with Madison.
Here are the last of the summer flowers....

...and she liked it. It was a Dr Suess theme. She got on the stage after and got in the nest that was a prop. Didn't want to leave the stage. She said "fun" on the way to the car.
Molly Robertson graduated, after 11 years of college, from UCSB last weekend and Colleen and family put together a really nice Bar BQ at the new park. It was a really nice day and Molly was so happy....Wish I had one of those delish sliders...or maybe the pulled pork ...or that great tri tip ...but wait the chicken...Then I "need" another of those delish cupcakes Susan made at the Solvang Bakery....
Here is my piece for the Green assemblage show at Art from Scrap....Tree Graffiti....

This is a good way to get some work done....We had our second all nighter...actually it was 2 nights...at the Art Clinic....We were joking using art retreat references ...like we went to Santa Maria to Target and Beverly's Crafts for our "vendor night" and here is our "commons dining"....It was really the Bit o Denmark in Solvang....For some reason the Jello was our fave....It was all good though....The weekend was kinda exhausting but good.
Here is Penny's not finished work...She also did some fantastic journal pages...
Here is Susan's work from ArtFest. She was started more in this vein.
