Childhood Library

Art Doodles

My mother has a great love of reading that she has passed down to my siblings and I. She started with her favorite picture books to assist us in forming our own appreciation for the quiet act of reading.

My sister recently passed down a couple of books from our childhood that her little girls have been able to enjoy for awhile. The books are slightly tattered but still in very good reading condition with lots of memories.

The Book Titles:

No More Baths by Brock Cole

Oh, Were They Ever Happy! by Peter Spier

Bored-Nothing To Do! by Peter Spier

Burt Dow Deep-Water Man by Robert McCloskey

Thanks, Kay, for passing along a little family heritage!

No wonder I learned to love to read! The imagery in these picture books is wonderful! Makes me want to sit down to paint and read all at the same time. To the love of art and reading!



A Little Snip, Great Big Boost!

In life, sometimes you need to get rid of the split ends. Whether thats actual hair, people, places or attitudes.

In my case, it was a big, fluffy, thick attitude that was giving me a downer mood.

I have extremely thick hair. Not only is it coarse and thick but has a little bit of its own mind to go with it. And people wonder where I get my spunk from! Its all the extra electric current running through my hair! Hahahaaa

Case in point: Here’s a snap shot.

Thank goodness the world of hair styling has come up with great techniques, products and ingenious ideas on how to deal with hair like mine.

Finding a new hair stylist is always a challenge for me. I need strong talented hands that can tame the mane. I found one in Seattle! Her lovely name is Carson at the Gene Juarez salon in downtown Seattle. She tackled my hair with a skillful eye and enthusiastic vigor. I came in feeling dowdy and left exuding sleek confidence with a new bob.

Gone was the downer mood and all the extra hair! I’m always amazed how much hair actually needs to be cut each time. Especially when I still have lots of hair left over on my head!

Thank you Carson for making me feel like woman again!
