My baby brother Nick, who is 18(!!!) is amazing! Here is his Senior Solo. None of us had ever heard him sing. I admire his bravery, and his talent. He is going to make a fabulous addition to the adult world! xoxo Nico!

About a month ago, the Hub and I decided to finally get to it and adopted a dog. We have been talking about it for about 5 years, and finally found a face too cute to ignore! ;) So, I give you Lucy Robinson! Lucy came from the Hub, and Robinson because at the ripe old age of 8, all the young pups are all over her! (You know who you are, e'hem ZIP!)LOL Part Poodle & part Cocker Spaniel, she is all love!
I have to be sure to RAVE about the shelter that we found Lucy through, Pet Orpahns of Southern California. There are no words to fully explain the dedication and love that the folks at PO shower on their animals. I absolutely recommend that if you are looking for a furry friend, that you start here! A friend of mine volunteers there and does a spot on the Thursday night Fox 11 news at 10, each week highlighting a new pooch. Lucy, then "Irene", was the star of the spot about 5 weeks ago. I was immediately smitten. Her mellowness called to me!
This little pup is the absolute sweetest! She did her first art fair with me last weekend and was so well behaved. She passed out the second we got home!

Late last year I was contacted by a lovely young lady who is writing her thesis on an artist and poet named Mina Loy. She wanted to commission a piece of Ms. Loy to hang on her wall and keep her inspired through the daunting task! At first I was a little perplexed, and then once I started to learn a bit about Mina Loy, I was intrigued! She was a talented, baudy woman who was surrounded by some of the greatest poets, writers and artists in history. She dreamed of accomplishing things no woman of her time dared! In the end I think this was one of my favorite projects to date! I absolutely loved the experience!
Tara Prescott (my client) and me with the finished piece! Man, I look exhausted in that pic!
