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.
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.
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 !!
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 !!
Click the “gif” artwork …
The image is a visual response to an engaging post:
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?
