Let Summer Begin!!!!

So, it's official! School is finished and the summer has begun. Here is our little graduate....

He's holding his little autograph dog and book that his teachers gave him. I'm ashamed to say that I grumbled at having to pay $14.00 for a cap and gown that he will wear for 30 minutes because I think he looks so darn cute. And, he loved it so much he wore it out to dinner and to Toys R Us for his "Graduation Present". Boo hoo, my little baby is going to big boy school :( I had to laugh because I started to cry as soon as they started the commencement music and I was like, "Come on Tracy, get a grip!" .....and so I did, but only so I didn't embarrass my family. Congratulations Alex!




I thought it would be fun to share a few "Studio" shots. I'm like the "Nutty Artist" or something. My work area is a complete disaster but I refuse to clean it up until I'm finished all of my projects that need all of this junk. Funny enough, the pictures make it look much neater than it really is.






Poe in a Box is almost complete. I collaged a copy of "The Raven" to the inside of the cigar box and antiqued it. I think it looks pretty good. It needs a little something extra but I think I will know it when I see it. Anyway, the next time you see Mr. Poe, he will be complete and ready for sale. At this point, if I add up all of the hours I've worked on him I'll have to charge a million dollars, lol.

Have a great evening AND weekend if I don't get a chance to check in again before then.
