Congratulations Michael !


He did it! My son Mike has graduated from Grand View College with a Graphic Design degree. This was his last week. He's still on the Deans List too! Well, depending on how his finals went. He brought some drawings over that he didn't have room for in his apartment. So being I am the mom that I am, I'm putting his self portrait on my blog :) Congratulations Mike, I love you and I'm so proud of you!

Didn't make the cut

So I went and got my hair cut :) I like it. It's sort of like an angled bob cut. Of the 1,274 visual artist who applied to the Des Moines Arts Festival 159 were invited. So we have 159 happy people and 1,115 who are bummed. ( Just what makes that little ole ant, think he can move a rubber tree plant. Everyone knows an ant can't...move a rubber tree plant. But he has High Hopes he has...etc.) There's always the next time!
