The good ol days

My brother had a matchbook collection. It was an old suitcase full. I used to love going through them. The coolest ones were from cocktail lounges. I must ask him if he still has them.

I think I'd go braindead if I didn't have at least 4-5 projects on the go. And that's in addition to juggling client work and two kids. I'm not sure if I will survive the trip to Greece! I am not good at relaxing. So when we get back I am definitely starting a Cafe Press shop in addition to the secret project we are working on.

Great topic this week for Illustration Friday. I did this a week weeks ago to put on the ugly grey brick wall in our family room. Unfortunately it makes the wall even duller looking in comparison! It's on wood with letters, jacks, monkeys, and other bits attached. I hope it doesn't make my kids afraid of clowns!

Thanks for stopping by.

That was fun!

I LOVE Claudine Hellmuth's work so I decided to give collage a whirl. I think I've got the bug now. Like I need another project - Yikes!!!!

Boy where did the week go? I just dashed off this quickie for "capture". I have a good marriage - this was just the first thing I thought of doing!

Well right now the Ontario government is telling me not to clean because it uses energy so I'm not! I think everyone has their own cleaning style–I can't stand dirty counters, clutter (unless I've "arranged" it thus making it a "collection"!)–basically I like clean and tidy surfaces but I can live with only cleaning my fridge when my mother-in-law is coming once a year, ditto the freezer. I HATE dusting but I like vaccuuming, and I'll sweep because if I don't it's revolting but I can't stand mopping. Hmmm, thank god for cleaning ladies.

I also have one child who is super clean with his person not his room and one who could care less. Lesser than less really. Bathtime is a HUGE struggle. Sitting in the water is great but actually washing? We have to make it a game, a bribe, a threat. Fun stuff!

Anyway, enough about me, suffice it to say, it is not me in this illustration although I do have a swiffer...
