Pinocchio Puppet Instructions

How neat! Here are directions for making the original Pinocchio puppet built buy the Disney model department.  Fun to see their techniques.  I'm always curious how people are able to fabricate stuff like this.  I would love to try making one, but alas I know I will probably never get around to it.

Alfie review on Amazon

"...My children have even acted this story out for us as a play--it is that charming."
Wow! That just gave me a warm fuzzy inside! Thanks Katie, who ever you are, for the wonderful review of "May I Please Have a Cookie?" on Amazon.  Alfie is also ranked at #36 in Children's Literature on Amazon at the moment (holy alligators Batman!)

Jim Doran Art

I love little boxes and tins.  I have always held on to TicTac containers and Altoid boxes much longer that an normal person should.  I have an iPod box on my desk right now that I can't throw out.  I just can't.  Don't ask me to.

I'm saving these things because I want to do something cool with them. At least that's what I keep telling my husband as I pick through the recycling bin.  So you can imagine that I'm loving the art of Jim Doran. He's giving me so much inspiration.  I think I need to start making something...

Illustration Friday - Burst

The bad thing about gardens is that sometimes they don't grow.  The other bad thing about them is that sometimes they do.

This family is bursting at the seams with kale.
