Visiting My Sister and making PEG DOLLS

I've been visiting my sister and her family all week. Being with my sister means I've got someone to sing along with me to "oldies" the way I do- all harmonies and instruments.  smile emoticon
Being with my sis means staying up most the night laughing over dumb things thinking that in the morning we'll realize how unfunny they were, to find we laugh just as hard the next day. Being with my sis means being with someone else who is as crazy as me about creating stuff. We got through a season of a show we like while crafting and painting inbetween all the other fun stuff and into the night. (I'm so gonna crash when I get home). Here are some pics of the frame we painted to go with the print she gave me and the peg dolls I painted to look like the 9th, 10th, and 11th Doctor Who, a Weeping Angel, and a Dalek. Krisser cut the wood for the TARDIS and we put it together and I painted it. My kids are going to flip being able to play with these. I love you KrisserBugs.

Spring Has Sprung!

I wake each morning and come down the stairs straight to this window, and each morning I can see even more green in the world from the day before.smile emoticon Here is this week's zentangle doodle in my sketchbook- Spring Has Sprung!

Our Dewdrop Princess

Complete and utter adoration! smile emoticon We are so proud of our little Dew Drop Princess, but no one was more proud than a little sis! She was perfectly princessly up there on stage. She was even more on cloud 9 as soon as she got out of the school and was running up and down the hill in the foggy lamp light holding her hoop skirt - dress billowing behind her like Cinderella. All us moms watching, grabbed our hearts in one collective sigh imagining how fun that must feel to do. Lol Man alive how I want to sew one for me now! Hahaha Afterwards we had friends over for a banana split bar/glow stick dance party/foosball tournament. A great night, but now I'm ready to rest!  Below are more pics of the dress.  :) It's basically the pattern of Belle's dress from Beauty and the Beast, with a few alterations and sewn in turquoise of course. :)
