Do you see the similarities–the puffy sleeves, the pleats and swirls of the skirt? Okay, maybe it’s just one of those proud mother kinds of things…One of the things I’ve been enjoying about Emma lately is how her artwork is changing. She’s adding more dimension, taking her time, and picking up on little details she hadn’t added before. Her big thing lately is adding clothing to her formerly naked stick-figure people. She’s even expanding her repetoire to things like cats and sunshines and flowers. I love it.
I am heading out to another round of pottery classes in about an hour. I can’t wait to get back in there and make some more buttons. I’m trying a new type of clay this time that should give me some different color effects, but still planning on making some more stoneware buttons. I’m looking forward to a little alone time in the studio at the art museum.
Meanwhile at home, I’m frantically working on laundry and housecleaning before we head to the Chicago suburbs tomorrow to spend some time at my brother and sister-in-law’s place. I’m looking forward to getting away after some depressing developments this week concerning Dan’s job search. More on that later.
I finally got an email out today with miniswap partners, so if you haven’t received one yet, please leave me a comment or drop me an email. (ooops! I guess it would be helpful if I sent the email to the WHOLE list of swappers, not just A-L !! That darn address book with its two pages of addresses!!)

So fun to see their artwork develop, isn’t it. To finally be able to put on paper all those things in those busy brains is just fascinating.
I haven’t gotten an email yet about the swap. My Emma is waiting with baited breath.
I love kids art! I didn’t get an email for mini swap!
no email about miniswap, did get one from a partner.
Emma picture is cute:)Thanks
Hi there! I haven’t yet received an email either about the miniswap. Looking forward to it!
Also no email here — we are looking forward to learning about our partner. Thanks for organizing it.
That picture does look just like the dress! We did not receive an email either- we are very excited for the swap though!
Speaking as a classically trained artist, her work is very good. She’s made fingers, eyeballs, individual strands of hair and, most importantly, gather lines on the skirt. That’s a tremendous amount of detail. Exceptional.
how flattering to have your dress immortalized in a work of art!
I see the similarities all right: two happy and beautifully dressed little girls! We’ve made contact with our mini-swap partner too. Thanks so much for setting this up.
And I’d frame or at least scrapbook those two photos above…time passes quickly!
Thank you I got the email and contacted my partner..Thank you for taking the time to do this.
That dress must mean a lot to Emma. My boys love the pjs I made them.
I have my swap partner from Norway and I have been there so how fantastic is that?
Thanks for organizing everything. Such a lot of work!!
