Sincerest Form of Flattery

Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, a talented blogger and author who writes mostly about her experiences with mental illness (in a really funny way), recently posted some so-called “doodles” and now we find she can make cool pictures too.  I don’t have the skills to do what she does, but her style inspired me to try a couple of things.



This is a seriously fun thing to do with just a pen and paper.  It actually turned into a kind of frenzy that lasted a couple or three days.

Here’s a question:  do mermaids have bellybuttons, or do they lay eggs?  I vote for bellybuttons because they’re  sexier than glutenous globs of fish eggs,


You can see where I tried something in the upper right hand corner that didn’t quite work out.

        Over the years I’ve collected and framed some of my favourite pieces of artwork that the kids did. I had a floral watercolour that Brent did hanging in the dining room and a poster sized drawing that Aly did in grade one depicting what she thought heaven would look like. It was done in vibrant, primary coloured pastels (the medium, I mean). Something about the brightness of the colours made it seem so alive. It hangs in her daughter’s bedroom now ☺

        Yeah, I love homemade art. It’s what we hang on our walls too -my MILs watercolors and acrylics mostly. And also some framed things the kids have done. It’s amazing what a nice mat or mount can do.
