Illustration - Rescue

My youngest's birthday is coming up in 15 days. She's going to be 6!! This year, instead of birthday presents, she asked that her friends donate money to help the endangered animals at WWF. I must admit, I was very surprised when she suggested it. I'm so proud of her.

Anyway, this year, being the Year of the Tiger, and the fact that the estimates for the numbers of tigers left in the wild are down to 3200, I immediately thought of the many child crusaders out there like my daughter trying to rescue the wild tiger populations!!

Illustration Friday - Expired

It was just one of those days.

Sue spilled tea all over her favorite top, and had to change. She tripped out the door and hurt her back. As a result of losing the battle with the tea/door, she was late to her youngest's Dr Appt, was asked to reschedule and was charged a $25 fee. The appearance of the parking enforcement officer walking in the direction of her car could only mean one thing in this day so rife with happiness: Expired. Some days you just need to go back to bed and start all over.

It has been ages since I've done an IF. Glad to be back on board!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

A super quick coloring sheet I did for our girls' classes at school. I think they went over very well. It was a fun, fun, day!

Open Fields' Great Goose Egg Auction

Every two years, Open Fields School auctions off approximately 100 intricately decorated goose, ostrich, and duck eggs. One of the school's most exciting events, the Great Goose Egg Auction brings together the creative skills artists from all over the world and the hard work of many volunteers and sponsors to provide an exciting day of bidding.

I'm so excited because this year one of my goose eggs is being auctioned off too!! Yippeee!! I sure hope it does well! Check out their link for more info.
