Kid Stuff: Perler Beads

After a record dry spell, the rain has returned to Seattle. During long stretches of rain its sometimes a struggle to find stimulating things for my kid to do that do not involve videos or tearing up the house (both favorite pastimes!) Luckily, a friend just introduced me to Perler Beads which are a fantastic […]

Bon Voyage to Us!

Hi all! Not a lot of arty stuff going on here this week which has been killing me since I am dying to try some of the techniques from this blog Ephemeral Gecko, which I have spent a great deal of time perusing lately. Some of these journal pages are just amazing. If you have […]

Pop-Up Art Gallery

Nature Scavenger Hunt

So, today something a little different. This was a mom and kid day (my favorite days, when we are together all day!) and I was looking for a way to get my little Lego fiend to put down the bricks and explore outside. Now, to be fair, he spends a lot of time outside. But, […]
