What Makes You Laugh?

I recently discovered the 52 Photos Project blog. Love the idea.  I'm going to start fresh with project #1 when the next round starts up in April, but in the meantime had to do a practice post for #48...

What Makes You Laugh?

Lately, this guy.
He's at this wonderful age where pretty much anything you do or say is just hysterical.  This is my first baby, so I really have no idea if he laughs more than others, but Leo is smiling or laughing all the time.  On the current list of hysterical things that evoke deep belly laughs are the following:
  • The words "Hip Hop" and "Toot Toot" spoken with a British accent. 
  • Watching anyone dance with enthusiasm, especially if they are dancing to M.C. Hammer. (Yes, folks, you read it right).
  • Having someone walk behind him or up the stairs after him. (You can imagine how fun this is in public).
  • Sneezing (himself or anyone else). 
  • Our cat. 
His laughing is so contageous, you can't help but join in the fun - it's just good for the soul.

Splish Splash

 The theme this week over at Creative Tuesdays is April Showers

This design is an older one that I called "Rain Shower", so I think it's quite fitting! If I were one of these birds, (as much as I'd like to say I'd be the one splashing around in the puddles), I'm pretty sure I'd be the one curled up in the nest enjoying the rain singing me to sleep...

What Year Is It?

I'm back. At least I hope I'm back. I've been working up the energy and trying to snag some time to get back into the swing of things - painting, designing, blogging, and all the things I used to love to do in my spare time. The problem for the last six months is I have had very little spare time!  I can't say I'm sad about that though, because this is the reason:
I think I might have the cutest, happiest baby on the planet.  He's been so much fun, I can't complain at all about having very little time for my shop or this blog.  But, if I'm ever going to come back to this (and I very much want to) I need to get in gear.  Last week, I checked in at my shop at zazzle. So much has changed in the last six months, I felt like I'd woken up and needed to ask, "What year is it?!"  I can't even believe the amount of new products they've added. It will be completely impossible to catch up.  If I tried, I wouldn't paint anything new for years, I'm sure of it.  So you probably wont be seeing my designs on MacBook Sleeves or Blackberry Cases, and that's okay.  I need to go one step at a time, start fresh, because in all honesty - I still don't have much free time.  The only reason this blog is getting written is because Leo woke up at 4am, and I never went back to sleep.  So, no promises here, but I am going to try to get productive again, join in the group challenge blogs again, create some new work again, and make some time for myself again... even if it's always this early.
