rainy days and news!!!

matthew, michael, julie and chip are visiting us, after we spent a weekend in Missouri celebrating the little guy's first birthday! betsy and david also came last weekend, so I've been living in the studio, literally and figuratively.
it's been either raining cats and dogs or broiling hot while they've been here, but we've had lots of fun on the gator, hanging out at big marine park, playing with turtles we find out in the wetlands, or with inside toys on the days it's too rainy to go outside.

one of the highlights of this trip included a visit to the como zoo, were we got to meet this little guy, who it turns out, is not so little. his eyelashes are almost as long as michaels or matthews.

in other news....i had a very exciting meeting with the buyers for one of my very favorite stores, and they placed an order!!!! Bibelot will now carry a selection of Duckie Uglings in their 4 Twin Cities stores!!!! you can still find the one-of-a-kind duckies at truly and i like you, and the Beeb will carry my small-edition creatures! OMG so exciting!!!

Red Hot, Cold and Wet...

(from this flickr pool)
it rained. it froze. it was still a blast.
i misplaced my camera for a few days so i apologize for the lack of original photos of red hot art, which was super fun and moderately successful, and of the wedding of two of my former students, which i did the flowers for, which was phenomenally fun and exciting.
after driving for about 10 hours and working for two weeks to get ready for the show, i was pretty exhausted and spent most of last week cleaning, doing laundry, sleeping, etc. i apologize for not blogging more frequently, i'm gonna work on it. ;)
we are in MO right now to celebrate michael's first birthday, photos to follow i promise!!!
