When Chaperoning is P-R-E-T-T-Y!

Now, you take a small group of gifted children to a world-renowned arts facility for an afternoon of tours, talking with artists and getting your hands all messy with paint and I am as happy as a pig in sh--.....mud! Not to mention, I met them there...NO BUS RIDE FOR MOI! The Goggleworks is an amazing place to have 30 minutes from our house! Being in that building makes my fingers twinge and creative ideas float around in my head like little tornados! And that is better than drugs, I tell you! Drugs like Sudafed or Motrin...geez, people, I am an artist in most ways but, drugs? No thanks!! I am freakishly strange enough all on my own!
So much inspiration and a group of amazingly well-behaved children led to some mighty creative moments this weekend - I was a busy NAMESAKE-er during naptime today!
Now, THAT'S the way to do a field trip! My career is back on track! LOL!

Personally I would have been freaking out with all that mess, but I am so glad it helped your creative juices. I love the namesakes!

Sounds like a great, fun day! The namesakes are looking great! Alysha and Abbey's are off to a great start! Can't wait to see what else you do!

OK, I will send you a check tomorrow. Kinda forgot that part, sorry!

Glad that your field trip was better (like 100%) better!

The namesakes are looking great!

I was looking forward to hearing another crazy story. But happy endings are the best...and no trip to the liquor store. LOL.

Love the namesakes.

I got my namesakes today and I am so excited to go get some frames to put them in! Brittany thought it was "totally cool" how her B looked! Thanks again Michelle, I blogged about your foundation and passion for Pediatric Cancer.
