into the wild

For children are innocent and love justice, while most of us are wicked and naturally prefer mercy.

- G.K. Chesterton (beginning of Chapter 12)


I got my names for the ornament swap today, it got me all in a Christmassy mood, singing songs around the office and brainstorming on what my ornaments should be. It was like I got new friends in the email! I can't wait to see what everyone makes!

point of view

I spent part of my weekend helping a friend create a stained glass appliqué window for a church her dad was building. I didn't do much except show them how to cut glass, but there were two little girls there, one was 3 and one was 6. They wanted to help so bad, but weren't allowed with all the glass, so I gave them my camera and told them they could document the event. When I finally got my camera back they had taken over 200 pictures mostly silly faces of each other, but I am enjoying all the portraits of me, this is how I look to a three-year-old.

IF: Hats

My new hat makes me look like a teddy bear, a rather sad teddy bear, oh well. This is my first Illustration Friday submission. I'm trying to do more of my own work, hopefully this exercise will keep me going!
