Music, kid art, and nostalgia

Today at Preucil, we had a special concert by Dave Zollo. His son attends the preschool, so lucky us for that connection! It was great music and hilarious to watch the little ones once they decided to get up and boogie.
Friday will be the last day of our summer session. I can believe that it has flown by so quickly! This week has been pretty quiet with a few kids on vacation and a couple home sick, so we've been playing and drawing alot. Went down by the garden for snack time yesterday and a few kids did some flower drawings. Today I captured this great rocket ship taking off!
Speaking of kid's art - I've been scanning some photos of myself as a baby and toddler tonight to use in the album class I am taking with Shelley tomorrow night and I found this great picture of me with portraits of my mom and dad on my legs! hee hee!
In other news, I'm getting ready to go visit my friend Steph in Washington D.C. I am SO excited! She is a great friend from college and I haven't seen her in a long time, so I am definitely looking forward to hanging out with her and getting my tourist on in D.C.

Also, Wendy and I had our first sale in the Etsy shop! Thanks Dona - you rock my socks! I also bought a couple of great things from two Etsy sellers - which I will definitely post about when I receive.

Thinking about buying this skirt pattern which I saw on Ali's blog. I haven't sewed any clothing for forever, but I think these look pretty basic and lots of potential to use fun fabrics! Plus I signed up for an Amy Butler class at Scrapfest - so it would be impressive to show up to class in a skirt I had made from her pattern and fabric! Alright - that's all the linkage I can handle for tonight :) Stay cool everyone...


  1. That is the sweetest picture of you!

    Congrats on the first sale!

  2. That is such a great picture of you with your "tattoos" as my son calls them--he looks much like that quite often! LOL

  3. Sounds like your summer is going so wonderfully!!! Have a great time in DC and send our love to Steph :)

  4. I like that picture with the drawings on your legs. I'm a Kirsten too by the way.
