the distribution of color
good monday! i'm well rested once again, but a storm blew through here last night and our teeth are all chattering. my artsygirl still hasn't fully forgiven me for dragging her off to swimming lessons a few hours ago (i had no idea it was so cold; you couldn't have paid me to get in that water). she's also moody about colors today. she likes blue and green but thinks they get way too much exposure in nature and public settings, while other colors get the shaft. easy for me to laugh but she's feeling some serious injustice over this. she wants to see more pink houses and purple horses. so i went to get coffee while she suffered in the water, and found some bits of color along the way to perk her up. i found no purple horses, but couldn't resist pointing out her purple lips.
a few other bits of monday news:
*esti chose this weekword and it is FAMILY. if you'd like to participate, leave a comment for her, and post your interpretation on friday.
*a sweet reader asked me to pass along the word about about her six word caption project. she's posting one photo each week and gathering as many captions as she can, with the goal of creating a coffee table book at the end of the year. sounds like fun - anyone is welcome to participate.
*scoutie girl is having an artsyville print giveaway - to enter leave a comment there before saturday at midnight. three winners will get to pick any 5x7 print from my etsy shop.
that's it from here! now will someone send me some warm weather pleeeeeeease.....
