Sometimes I go into neon+primaries+++ color explosion splatter mode... like yesterday, I painted a branch of a tree that Cookie brought home, along with ten other things that people have asked me to splatter.

I hope you all had a beautiful holiday weekend! I know I enjoyed watching all of you celebrate Passover and Easter via Instagram. It's actually kind of beautiful- the fact that we all celebrated holidays that are over 2000 years old and that we read a book that we have been reading for over 2500 years. Traditions are what make life rich, and give continuity through the generations... This was … [Read more...]

Sorry for the late posting everyone, I did this last night and had to wait until morning to take the photos! Remember last year, I made a neon orange collar with nail polish? I wore it at least 3 times a week and it was and still is one of my favorite accessories. Well, the now I decided to do one in mint, the color de jour of the moment.
