Five Favorites

Linking up with Grace on behalf of Hallie.

1.  This book.  We've made one every year for 4 years or so, including an animal themed one for this year, but seriously, this is my favorite.  I love to look at it over and over again.  A couple of my favorite pages below, but they do not do the whole book justice.

2.  Wilson's new trick.  He flies toy planes with sound effects.  Thank you hours of practice watching Dominic fly them around the house.

3.  Project Runway.  I'm really loving watching this season on Hulu.  I love Kate and Helen, with the super feminine looks they are turning out.  But Dom has some of my favorite looks this season for sure.

4.  NOLA(Night of the Living Art) is getting going for November 2014.  I just met with my co-chair today to start picking the next collection.  Bring it on!

5.  My coworker's reaction to a fairly typical kid issue:  At work yesterday, I had a little boy in my reading group do a sort of a 'no big deal but kind of have to pretend it is' thing of making his hand into a gun and pretending to shoot a classmate.  So, as he returned to his class, he had to tell the teacher what he had done.
Boy:  . . . excuse . . . blah blah . . . so I shooted him.
Teacher:  with what?
Boy:  (meekly makes a gun with his finger)
Teacher:  (so over the top, gasps)  Uuuaaaagh! (she grabs his fingers to hide the abomination that they reveal)
I had to leave her quickly to keep from laughing.  She is too funny and so great with little boys.

  2. Oh goodie! I'm so happy I'm not the only PR fan out there!! My husband can't stand the show, so I record it and watch it late at night while folding laundry. Kate is my favorite, she makes such fun yet classy pieces. I'm always amazed at what they can create with such little time!!

  3. Love PR- love the drama, love the art they crank out under pressure- and someday, I will visit Mood. Also- that book! Oh my goodness what a treasure!! Did you use a template? or did you create that? Such a cool concept. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I want to see Mood too! My sister and I made the book together. I usually come up with words, an idea, and a game plan, then we work on the costuming together, she takes the photos, and she does the intensive photoshopping and design. The Art one was my favorite, but we did an animal one this year. We did a counting one, a color one, and one that was "I love you more than..." I am working on planning for next year now. Thank you for commenting!
