Thursday's are Bee days - I pick her up at school at 2:50 and depending on the weather we decide Beach Day ? or Art day ?

Bee days are Me days ... another recipe for my self tlc is to spend a few hours every Thursday with my best 7 year old friend - hooray ! She and I have been working on some large scale art collaborations ;-)

Check this out - Christy over at Mrs. Humpal's Art Room turned my lil ' owls Hugo, Joshua & Morella into a kindergarten art lesson - how cool is that ? & WOW ! the kids incredible owl art that resulted. Thanks Christy.


  1. Beautiful collaboration!

    Bee is a spitting image of a young Sarah Polley, don't you think? I think this every time you share a photo of her.


  2. You are giving Bee an incredible gift... time and attention from a creative, caring adult. Lucky Bee.

  3. That Bee she is Sweetie ... and I really believe that she gives me just as much back ... hangin' with her every Thursday is like meditation. It's an Indian Summer kinda day here today so she & I will be off on a beach exploration with a stop after at the library - another fav of mine.

  4. enjoy your time with Bee! May your collaborations go on for years to come. I love the kinder project with the Owl inspiration. Tail wags ~moose

  5. Isn't it wonderful being able to spend real quality time with a child? How lucky you are!

  6. This post reminds me of why I so enjoyed my time as a teacher of 4-7 year olds. I had almost forgotten how wonderful it was. Thank you.

  7. Fabulous fun and gorgeous color!
    I got to work with 22 3rd graders this morning, we were designing textured wall pockets in clay which we will eventually glaze.
    Here's to happy, creative collaborations!

  8. I love that you are able to do this, for her and yourself.

  9. A wonderful collaboration!
