I love art, particularly art that is "outside the box" (or should I say frame?), like body paint and urban camouflage. Here are some incredible photos showing Urban Camouflage. Liu Bolin is a Chinese artist who paints himself into portraits, literally. Desiree Palmen is an artist from the Netherlands who has done a lot of interesting Urban Camouflage. Here is some of her work: Urban Camouflage goes beyond painting people. Joshua Callaghan has found a … [Read more...] about Urban Camouflage: Blending into the Background

I spend a lot of time on the computer, which is fine with me because I love working on the computer. I love technology and having the world at my fingertips...and I really love getting to work from the comfort of my home. However, it's easy to fall into the trap of doing nothing but working, when your "workplace" is right in front of you. Thankfully, computers are not only great for work, but they offer a world of entertainment too. Whether you like to watch television programs or movies online, … [Read more...] about Computers aren’t just for work!
With spring comes spring cleaning, and this year it has been a major cleaning! We are purging and rearranging and developing new storage solutions to get out home functioning better for our growing family. Part of my spring cleaning has been cleaning the carpets and furniture. They look so much better after being cleaned with the steam cleaner, but the smell of carpet cleaner is not one that I like a lot. I had company coming over the day after I cleaned the carpets, and I wanted to freshen up … [Read more...] about Where do you need Lysol Fabric Mist?
You may remember when I posted my dismay about Griffin's artistry in our upstairs hallway. If not, I have shared it below. It was permanent blue marker, and it was EVERYWHERE! I tried to get it off with a magic eraser, which did an okay job on the door, but since our walls were painted with a flat builder's paint that was not at all washable, there was nothing I could do about the rest. That is, until I learned about Behr Premium Plus Ultra paint and primer in one! The kind people at Behr … [Read more...] about Behr paint rescued our walls!
I love watching my garden grow. Last week I shared some pictures from the day I planted it, and just for fun (fun for me anyway!) I'm going to share pictures of my garden each week. Here is a comparison of week 1 to week 2... I put the old coffee cans around the tomatoes that don't have cages just to keep my little bunny visitor from eating them. Last year I planted my tomatoes and the next morning, there was nothing there! This year the bunny has eaten some of the marigolds, but that … [Read more...] about My Garden: Week 2
My friend Pam and I headed off to Toronto last week to check out the Hot Toys of Summer, courtesy of MGA Entertainment. It was held at the Toronto Zoo, so my kids were blessed with two Zoo visits in less than a week's time, and it was a beautiful day to be at the zoo. MGA Entertainment has some awesome summer toys on the market right now. To appeal to little girls, they have created a remote control Lalaloopsy car that carries one or two small Lalaloopsy dolls. Avery tried it out and thought … [Read more...] about Check out the Hot Toys of Summer
