Current Mood: shocked that the year is half over already!
Current Triumph: the school year is pretty much DONE, son! I've got a really busy summer ahead of me but hooray for the Class of 2016.
Current Bane of my Existence: my hair right now... getting the itch to do something crazy again.
Current Artist I'm Diggin': Nix&Gerber. I've always been fascinated by claymation films (like The Nightmare Before Christmas, James & The Giant Peach, Mary and Max, and The Boxtrolls) and the artistry necessary to create entire worlds like that and these artists' apocalyptic dioramas remind me of that. Beautiful stuff.
Current Product/Tool/Material/Technique: Crayola slick stix - they're glorified crayons with a smooth texture like oil pastels that I'm gonna use in my summer camps this year. Something less messy and more fun for your kids to try!
Current Color Palette: I hate to say it but for some reason I'm diggin' like baby food colors.... I must be craving my red hair again.
Current Music: Dark Necessities by Red Hot Chili Peppers
Current Food: Rita's Italian Ice! It's so stinkin' hot and summer hasn't even fully begun!
Current Movie/TV Show: X-Men Apocalypse was aight.... I've loved X-Men since the early 90s cartoons and comics. In second grade I'd even buy this older kid's drawings of Storm and Wolverine at aftercare (I was always a patron of the arts!). But I REALLY cannot wait to see Me Before You!
Current Book: I'm reading "Wild and Free" with some good girlfriends. So far so good!
Current Need: For my daughter to handle her transition to a "big girl bed" responsibly. I fear that I'll wake up one morning with a silent toddler's face in my face and I'll scream bloody murder!
Current Want: a beautiful backyard oasis.... or just a hammock. I'd LOVE a hammock.
Currently Studying: Acts 13:48-14:23 Discomfort is where the Spirit thrives and adventure begins! Am I willing to be uncomfortable?
