Arts in the Park

This summer has just been flying by! We are getting ready for Arts in the park tomorrow and i am wishing we had more time. I work today, so most of our work will be done after Jayne's bed time. We need to get some artwork pakaged and priced and pack everything up still. I am a little bummed out because I couldn't get the day off tomorrow, but I found out that we get time and a half so I feel a little better. Adam and my mom will be manning the tent. We have a table that will benefit the Case Bishop Leukemia Relief Fund too, hand made items from my mom and grandma. I really hope the rain stays at bay and we end up having a great day at the park (by we I mean the crazy elephant and all the people who come to visit). We will have lots of original artwork there that is NOT available online! So come check it out : )

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Indescribable

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
