I went into a house of mirrors for the first time four years ago and was thoroughly enchanted with the possibilities for portraits. My family and I went to the Museum of Science on Friday, and I got to take some wacky and wonderful ones. I am already thinking about different ways to incorporate some of these photos of me into my artwork.

My family got great news yesterday - my husband has been extended through the summer at his job! This is big news because we both get laid off for summer, and we were very concerned about finding summer employment this year. We're ready to book our summer trip - we want to go back to Sandwich this year, for some camping and swimming . In celebration, I'm sharing the ATCs I painted last year while we were there. I can't wait to have the sand in my toes again, and to float down the canals on noodles with Esme at Boardwalk Beach!

I've been wanting to start an art journal for a long time, and a couple days ago I finally took the plunge. This is the first page and doodle and Zentangle inspired. and was done with Sharpie and watercolor pencils I'm finding that right I'm loving the combination of purple and yellow together. I think I want to redecorate my bedroom!

Our awesome friend, Matt Wilga, has just released his first single, There I Go. In celebration of his accomplishment and getting to see him play live in Amherst, we stamped these shirts to wear to the show. Being a crafter is extra handy for things like these - I already had these huge Heidi Swapp stamps (which I love) and some black Crafter's ink by Colorbox. I'm not sure the show was strictly appropriate for our daughter, given the other acts and the lateness of the hour, but she is a big fan so we didn't want her to have to miss it. He dedicated a song to her and gave her the set list.
