Visiting Grandma’s Home

Visiting Grandma’s Home

We just came back from Grandma’s home in Saskatchewan.

Grandma is “old school” and doesn’t have any cable tv or internet connections.

Because of that, we spent a lot of time drawing, going to to the playground, etc.

Jade had a wonderful time seeing all her cousins, aunts, uncles …

And Jade especially loved seeing her Grandma again.

Jade’s Hotel Transylvania Birthday Party

Hotel Transylvania / 1

Happy Boo-Day !!!

My daughter Jade absolutely adores the animated movie Hotel Transylvania.

It made a super fun theme for her 4th birthday party.

Enclosed are a few memorable pics from the day.

Hotel Transylvania / 2

Group Mural

The party craft was a giant 8 foot wide poster.

Each kid drew a monster and decorated their own bat.

Even some parents joined in the fun.

In the end, the mural was like a HUGE card for Jade.

Everybody smile !!!

Jade and her happy friends with their finished product.

Pin the Head on Frankenstein

Jade was the 2nd closest.

The game was a “monstrous” hit with all the kids !!

Hotel Transylvania / 5

Birthday Cup Cakes !!!

Of course, no party is complete without some sugary goodness.

Jade had a great time but was COMPLETELY exhausted by the end.

She went to bed at 4:30 that afternoon … And didn’t wake up until 5:oo the next morning !!

A fun day creating with Jade.

We cut some great old printed material and added doodle lines.

I’m always a sucker for stamps and cancellation artwork.

The image is a visual response to an engaging post:

The Animated GIF: The Antithesis of Mindfulness

Personally, I love rich visual imagery … It’s the way I think and communicate.

For me, the best Art has ambiguity. I like having the time and silence to appreciate and question.

But now, EVERYDAY feels like an animated gif. The average person is exposed to 3,500 advertising messages a day. We devour images, resources and ideas.

And along the way, maybe we’re debasing and dehumanizing ourselves?

Down The Rabbit Hole

Down The Rabbit Hole“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

My wife and Jade collaborated on this collage.

The girls are BIG Alice in Wonderland fans.
