A Facebook Winner, Crooked Houses, and a Very Large Sign

It's been slow goin' artwise this summer, but I've gotta step it up a notch in order to be ready for our September shows! Here's a peek at a few pieces I've accomplished. These crooked houses were fun to make and the message about sums it all up:

In other news, the facebook giveaway is over! Last night Sandy Echternacht won! I'm not sure if facebook is the best way to have a giveaway in the future. It was confusing where to enter, and the post kept disappearing and reappearing. Not too reliable. I was worried we were going to lose ALL of our entries! Oh well, ya live and learn right?

So now what?!

Back to school time is almost upon us! Green Girl's youngest will start kindergarten and my youngest is starting preschool 4 mornings a week. It's going to be sad....for about 15 minutes - until we get a taste of freedom. :-) This is new territory folks - all of our 6 kids in school! I'm still kind of in denial.

Like I mentioned earlier, we're preparing for two great shows in September. One in Cedar Falls and one in Davenport. Artapalooza in C.F. is a new one for us, and we're ex-cite-ed! And Riverssance in Davenport is always one of our best and most fun shows every year, so we're looking forward to going back! See the "Where" section for more details and links. I'm sure we'll be fillin' ya in with more specifics as the time gets nearer.

We're busy this week working on a very special and very big (2ft x 8 ft) sign for my kids' school library. Here's a sneak peek of the work in progress:
I stayed up til 1am last night painting black and white checked trim for the border. Now it's on to putting it all together, outlining, sealing and staining etc. etc. Shooting to get it done before school actually starts - August 19 here. We'll be sure to show you more pics when it's finished!

How about you? What are you looking forward to at the start of this school year? Or are you dreading it?! Fill us in.

Over and Out for now!
