Category: A to Z Challenge

U is for “um… You’re ugly. Let’s face it.”

Yes, I realize I am TOTALLY behind in this challenge (6 letters to be exact) but this challenge falls around the time I do a big arts festival and it always throws me off. I do the challenge for me and not for anyone else, so it doesn't bother me that I am behind. I ...

T is for “Totally Aweso….holy crap that guy is huge!” Says Emmett.

Emmett and Steve, both construction workers from different worlds... My son Maarten and his friend Jared's idea. Minecraft is a huge hit in this house as are legos, of course.

O is for “Oh CRAP, Octopus!!”

Freddie has this glass octopus I bought him in Gatlinburg last year. He said it would be PERFECT if it was attacking this particular lego dude and tore off his helmet! Oh yea!! So dramatic!! Look at that terrified look on his face! So awesome :-). The octopus looks so fluid here, like it was ...

N is for “Not a Good Day…”

"Not a Good Day..." watercolor on Ampersand Aquabord 4 x 4" Everybody has a bad day. Especially when you run into a huge ass blue spider that is almost 4 times as big as you and you have a plastic TOY gun. Shit. What to do... I guess next time don't piss off the boss and ...
