And no, we didn't think to count them when we put them away. Let's just say there's a whole heck of a lot! Enough that I started out trying to arrange them and she said, "Mom, just throw them on there – I'm starting to get HOT!"
Next the boy with his Legos or Hot Wheels? I can probably bury him with both.

When I showed the finished frame to the minions, they both commented on the picture. They didn't like the fact that the image is old (only 6 months and it's the most recent family shot I have), it's in black & white (so we don't clash with the frame) and I have no hair (yes I do, it's just short). That was actually more than is normally said, and nothing was about the artwork, so I was pretty happy.
The hubster got home at his usual time and I headed to yoga after giving him the rundown on what I'd left them for dinner. When I got back after class, I found out the minions had dragged him over to show him the frame. They told him why they didn't like the photograph, but then gushed about the artwork.
They like me. They really like me!

I painted it minty green, sketched out a B and started doodling flowers and leaves. Then I added some color and now I'm inking over the top. Eventually I might add an "est. 1997" line, and of course, a family picture.
First, though, I need to go to the library and a couple of other places with the punks. The fun never stops around here.
But she's not.
She's a very happy, glittery, pink owl.

I hope you can tell that her ears and paws are glittery. That, at least, is hard to represent in watercolor and someone (not naming names) is a little miffed.
Someone else is piling up his creations and favorite toys for my next assignment and told me, "Be afraid. Be very afraid."
Whuh-oh. (Spellcheck thinks whuh-oh is a word. What?)
