meanwhile, here are the "leapin' lizards" i brought to the office on Leap Day. the "scale" effect was brown airbrushed over a piece of lace (the same lace from the witchy dresses last fall) i thought these little guys were kind of sloppy--crossed eyes, undefined toes, less-than-sharp airbrushing--but everyone's inner kid was mesmerized anyway, pausing because "they're too cute to eat" then eating them anyway. :)
still on the way are groovy flowers, flying ladies, more purses, a 60th birthday, and a pot of dirt. (you'll see...) also on the way: i intend, at least once, to hold a bake sale for Share Our Strength this summer, with a goal of $3k. i have math to support this, as long as i can round up 23 like-minded people. doing anything in June?
