Connor Cat.

I don't usually share pictures of Connor on my blog, but I couldn't resist sharing this:

Connor went to a birthday party last Saturday and face painting was a major attraction for C and his friends.  They all looked so good! 

Today is my first day at home in a long while and the chores are stacked against me.  First on my list is a lot of work-work.  Lot's of grading and emails to send.  Midterm grades are due on Monday (already!) so it's time to get my gradebook in order.

Laundry is in progress, unloading the dishwasher is next.  Exciting stuff.  Hopefully I'll have a little time to work on my "Make it in March" challenge.  Who knew that March was going to usher in such a crazy busy schedule for this work at home mom?  Perhaps I should have made my declaration of craftiness in February.  I don't remember it being quite so busy.

I have managed to complete one little art project.  I've always been pretty traditional in terms of art, but lately I've seen a lot of contemporary pieces on Pinterest that have really appealed to me.  I've been thinking about trying to make two large "pictures" for my living room, but I wanted to try my idea on a much smaller scale first.  So here goes...

Definitely imperfect and the jury is still out, but it felt really good to just do something. 


  1. DO it! Seriously, cute. Very Mondrian.

  2. Love it Tricia! The colors are great.

  3. Thank you for the encouragement. I needed a little nudge!

  4. Your little cutie looks purrfect! I love finding unique (inexpensive!) ways to add art to the walls. Love what you came up with!
