Green Thumb, Cheerios and Adorable Babies

Every once in awhile my thumb turns green.  It then proceeds to fade to less greeny green, until it's back to regular flesh color and most of my plants are dry and brown.  Usually my thumb greens up when my eyes see something lush and beautiful.  This time it greened when I eyed some adorable succulents and cacti.  They are so tiny and darling, I just want to pinch them.  I have to smile at them when I make my coffee in the morning.  They are humble little succulents.  I am going to do my best to help those little guys thrive.

Walter and I made a "turd feeder" (he can't say B's).  This is a dynamite activity to do with children.  It's low key and relaxing and you can do it out doors and then quietly wait for birds to come.  When they do you can squeal in delight that you fed the turds!

Making custom mobiles for family's expecting little ones is my new most favorite thing to do on this planet.  It forces me to try new things and stretch my brain in ways that I never would have.  I feel so excited by them.  It reminds me of how I used to feel in art school when we would get a challenging assignment.  Left to my own devices, I don't challenge myself as much.  With this new direction of customs I am forced to, and when things don't work out (like with the umbrella, initially) there is no time to mope because there is a definite deadline that needs to be met.  This is just an ideal recipe for me, creatively, and I am super happy about it.

Pigs!  Oink!  It's funny how one pig in a skirt makes the others look naked, when really it's perfectly acceptable for pigs to not where skirts.

I've fallen in love with your piggies, naked though they are!
