2. ROBOTS for sale

I mentioned in a earlier post that the Woog is going on her first mission trip to Alaska. I am so proud of her bravery and heart to go. She’s been raising money for the trip which is $1250 (big shout out to all her friends & family who’ve donated), she only has $250 more to go! So, to help her out I’ve made some original Junk A Doodles art to help her reach her goal. She helped pick out all the found objects and I put them together. Five are on sale now and five more will be added this week. They are only $20 (not bad for an original piece of art!) and shipping is only $0.20 to cover Etsy’s listing fee and I’m donating the rest of the shipping costs.

Go check out the shop for a look at them all. Here’s my favorite, little ERNIE:

If art isn’t your thing and you want to give a $1 or $2 to the Woog, she’d really appreciate it. You can donate any amount here:

3. Spa-rt Party

We didn’t have time for a Woogie Wednesday yesterday, so I worked up an invitation to invite the Woog to a “Spa-rt” (spa+art – I love making up new words) party tonight. Check out the WW blog tomorrow for everything that went down. It’s gonna be CRAZY!

4. Art Camp – Day 1

With only a week and a half left of summer vacation, this week was declared “Art Camp” in the studio and today was Day 1. We started off the morning with the Woog visiting my oil painting class. I painted while she sketched and looked at the techniques of the other women in the class. I even let her paint a little on my painting. We then came back to the studio and watched (pretty much in fast forward) a video of the biography of Pablo Picasso. We then started with the art!

First was oil painting of the Woog’s red cowboy boot (still in progress):

We had to “erase” her’s a couple of times until she got the hang of it. Ocee slept during this part of camp. probably better that way. I don’t think a 6 month old oil painting would have been a good idea.

Then when we couldn’t do anymore to our pieces until they dried some, sowe moved onto oil pastels:

Ocee join in after his nap. He took to the oil pastels fairly well by stabbing the paper with them

Tomorrow we have another full day of it so stay tuned!

5. Art Camp – Day 2

Today’s Day 2 of Art Camp and I think we are moving to half day camps. Although I would love to go all day making art and experimenting with new mediums, the Woog seems to lose interest after lunch and Ocee seems to be a bit fussy in the early afternoon. So, we’ll just focus on about 4 hours a day of art. Ocee didn’t make anything this morning due to napping plus today’s mediums were not a good fit for him. I might try something after his afternoon nap.

Today we finished up our boot paintings from yesterday:

And we did some scratch board art:

The Woog is giving this piece to a friend who will be coming over on Saturday to “make a music video.” Not sure what that involves.

While doing this piece I heard this about 50 times “Momma, that lady is really freaking me out.”

Tomorrow we’re devoting the day to Junk A Doodles!

6. Art Camp – Day 3

Well, I think Art Camp is going downhill. We only got the canvas collaged for our Junk A Doodles project so here’s our in-progress shot:

The Woog moved onto dancing and singing in her room and Ocee moved on to fussiness so we’ll try some more again tomorrow!

9. a little lunch box love – the challenge!

I’ve had this idea for several years and have decided to “launch” it with a challenge to all creative Moms (Dads, Grandparents, etc. can join in too!) to get out those craft supplies and send a little lunch box love in you’re child’s lunch everyday for the week of Valentine’s (Feb. 14th – 18th, 2011). You can get your juices flowing by looking at some here.

When my daughter was 3 I began making her notes when she would take her lunch to Mother’s Day out. Almost 3.5 years later, I’m still doing it. She chooses her lunch box every year based on if she think it has room to “display” a note. She looks forward to it everyday and will sometimes come into my studio the morning of and try to take a peek at what I’m making for that day, but I try and keep it a surprise until lunch time. They range from simple “i love yous” to more elaborate pieces that sometimes highlight what she’s learning at school or what’s going on that week. When we went to Disney a few years ago I did a countdown to Disney day in a series of notes, and this year when we were finding out if she would have a little sister or little brother, I counted down the days to the ultrasound via her lunch notes. It’s always been a little way to make her lunchtime special.

I’ll be posting her lunch notes everyday next week and I encourage you to do the same and send me a link to them or link them over on the “a little lunch box love” facebook page, where I’ll be posting notes, ideas and other lunch goodies throughout the year. If you have an older child, maybe a backpack note will work best, or if you have a younger child, think about adding a little note by their plate at lunch. Just show them that you love them!
