The Scrap Glass Situation

A bed can no longer fit in my old bedroom, because it is filled with tables and drawers overflowing with scraps of stained glass. I used it in this piece. It reminds me of the Poppies that were in Lambert Park, Alpine. About ten years ago there was a whole field of them, now only a few come up each year.

Leaf Citations on my car

I cant believe how yellow everything is. My mom wouldn't let me off the hook till I drove up the canyon to see the leaves. It was surreal. I was really worried about moose charging me or something horrid like that, but it was really nice up by Stewart Falls.

Eating Rasberries with Lex

Last saturday I happened to notice the plethora of rasberries in our neighbors yard. Too many for me to pick alone. My niece Lexi enlisted as my accomplice. Most of them ended up in our mouths, and the ones that made it into the bag didnt last more than 10 minutes before they were sitting comfortably in our bellies. The horses next door were looking lonely so we decided to give them some weeds. Are those bad to feed horses? They seemed to really enjoy them! Oh, along with the rasberries we also got away with some squash and tomatoes which we made into a deliciouse Fall soup with some corn that I grew, and I grew it from a SEED! Incredible. The first thing Ive ever grown and eaten. I am proud of myself. Lex is a great partner in crime!

Teaching Children's Art Classes

Yes. Those are chinchilla ears. I was so proud of this creature I had to show him off. His name is Chin. All you need is some tape, tissue paper, colored paper, and the incredible mind of a 7-year old.
