"Peek A Boo" captured 5th place in the Fujimugs competition!

Alia (15mths) plays peek a boo with her hands, towels, and the curtains! The other side has paint on it from playing "Peek A Boo". Curtains can always be replaced but these precious years can not. (I guess I'll have to deal with a messy house for a few more years.)

Gotta love those wrinkles!

(no worries, I won't post all the other colours.)

I am working on a colour book for my daughter Alia (1 yr). This is the WHITE page. It has been a fun project for my 3yr old. She had a lot of creative imput (props, outfits, page layouts etc.) I usually find children angel pictures quite creepy, but I did it anyways.

Illustration Friday : REFLECTION

I did printmaking with my daughter (3yrs). The paint transfers to a new piece of paper making a true "reflection" of itself!

We had a BLAST making these outside. She wanted to make one for all her friends and family members. I better go buy some stamps tommorrow!!! :)

topic: Ourselves

In this GAME of LIFE, I play many many roles. My favourite & most important being that of MOTHER.

I actually was going for something else, but some comforting was needed and the timer went off ...... needless to say, this is my favourite self portrait!

My "Sunny Daisy" was chosen to be included in Photo life magazine (Sept.2005). It is inside twice - 1 in the table of contents and the other in an article. This is very exciting for me. I love taking photos of flowers (esp. macros).

Illustration Friday theme - EMPTY

This humble watercolour represents the vast fields of emptiness between Calgary & Edmonton that I drove past this weekend!

I had a wonderful weekend visiting my brother, going to the beach, the zoo, and the majestic mountains (Banff).

The city of Festivals! This week alone we enjoyed Klondike Days Exibition and Heriatge Days in Hawrelak Park. The weather has been nice & warm - and those wonderful dragonflies are enormous from eating the mosquitos! I doubt I was bit once this summer!
