Library Books

Taking trips to the library with my little one is one of my favorite Mother/Daughter things to do.
We'll pick out our books and then read a short story together there before coming home with our wares.

We picked these books out earlier tonight:

I love the crispy sound that the plastic book covers make....and the excuse I get to read children's books again. :)

Tiger in Water (contin.)

He's coming along.   I'm excited to be working on him again.
In charcoal, on toned charcoal paper.... 18"x24".  

Lots of messy fun.

Jesus Loves Me

Busy making t-shirts for the little guys in Sunday School tomorrow....

The white tees were $2 a piece at Michaels, so I scooped a bunch up and hand-painted "Jesus Loves Me" in fabric paint.

The Lazy Kitten

Today I discovered a dusty, old box sitting inside my closet and thumbed through drawings and stories from when I was little.  I think I was in 3rd or 4th grade when I made this one.   (I scanned the "abridged" version.)  It makes me laugh.
