Chicken Nugget Lemon Tooty

By Gracie, Age 11

By Valerie, a bit older than 11

The kids over at the Chicken Nugget Lemon Tooty blog have been sharing their illustrations now for 5 years and are celebrating by asking artists to contribute artwork based on one of the kid's drawings. I decided to create something based on Gracie's (age 11) bird.

Please take the time to visit their blog and tell them how awesome they are!

Blog Feature – Urban Comfort

I stumbled upon Suzonne Stirling's blog through Pinterest – very happily, I might add! – and am totally delighted with her Urban Comfort blog. Check out this blog post about southern photographers.


The photo feature here is by Sally Man. Absolutely phenomenal photos...if you've ever been to New Orleans, or that area of the country, these photos will touch a cord with you. They are so evocative of the New Orleans atmosphere. I adored these and New Orleans! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Illustration Friday - Swell

As the waves began to swell, they turned their little boat and headed for home...enjoying the wind and spray on their faces.

Illustration Friday – Imperfect

I did this piece a while back, but it fit so perfectly with the "imperfect" theme that I couldn't resist putting it up. Hope you enjoy it. I love that despite all our imperfections, we still find things to love about each other.
