A Bad Idea

If you are ever in the situation where several girls under the age of ten want to have a slumber party at your house, just say "no."

Why, you ask?

Because at 2am one of the girls might "see" a stalker outside and wake up all of the other girls. Then, one of the girls might "see" the same stalker, but with a gun. Then, they might start calling all of their parents and telling them that there is a stalker outside who is trying to kill them. Then one of them might have their mother come pick them up. Then they might decide that just calling their parents isn't enough and they have to start calling everyone they know (grandparents, aunts, cousins) to tell them that there is a stalker outside trying to kill them. Some of these relatives will be called 10 or 15 times. The girls might then decide that none of them want to be in the house anymore and arrange for another girls parents to come pick them up. And ALL of this while you are sleeping and have no clue what is going on. Eventually the commotion will wake you up only to find that one girl is gone and the other girls are all packed up and about to leave. And the worst part of it all, is that if there really was a stalker with a gun, the girls were never even going to bother to wake you up and tell you about it!

I think that if there is a recall on your car, the dealership should come to you, pick your car up, take it in, fix the problem, and then bring it back. I don't see why I should have to take it in and try to find someone that can give me a ride home and then another ride back to pick up my car from the dealership. So keep sending me your recall notices every month Pontiac- I don't care if my driver's side window 'might' shatter. If you want it fixed so badly, then come and get it. You know where I live! And no, I don't want the dealership to give me a ride either because I don't like to be in confined spaces with people I don't know. Jeez.

Illustration Friday - Linked

I've been sick all week so this is about as far as I got on this week's Illustration Friday topic "lined." Sorry if it's a little hard to make out-- I think I need a new scanner :P

New Print!

I'm pretty excited about my newest print. This was painted with watercolor and outlined with charcoal. I had to work with the sky after I scanned it in because it was a little washed out, but I just love the way that it turned out. Matt wants everyone to know that this entire composition was his idea, and he has given himself the new title "creative adviser."
Prints are available here in my shop!

We had to go to five stores to find them, but I bought the girls some new Summer dresses yesterday. Both of them were at the Children's Place. I especially like the white one that Junie is wearing :o)
