I went to visit my parents in Ventura last week. I spent a few days playing with my parents and visiting my grandma Mimi. This is the cute house I grew up in. People always called it the leave it to beaver house.

My mom turned my old bedroom into a guest room and used some of my work to decorate the walls. I thought it turned out pretty cute.

At Christmas time I had made my parents a book called "I am Thankful for You" and I forgot to take pictures of it before I gave it to them. I am going to teach a class in August on how to make the book so I thought I should take a few pictures as examples of what you can do.

After I left Ventura I then when down to San Diego for a few days and hung out with my sisters Adrienne and Kim and their kids. We went shopping, had lots of good meals out, played at the park lots, and I got to see my two four year old nephews skateboard which was pretty impressive. All in all it was a great trip.

Tree Skirt?

I made this skirt out of some cool wood grain fabric I bought at the garment district in LA a few months ago. It looks cute on the dress form but on me it looks more like a maternity skirt so I need to either have a kid or do a few alterations before being able to wear it. The second one sounds a little cheaper.

Stencil Kit!

I just love stencils and always have. I think that is why I studied printmaking in college because there are a lot of similarities. I can't quite figure out what it is that attracts me to them but when Paper Source had this kit I just couldn't resist.

I also love deer. I bought a deer necklace when I first moved to idaho because it just felt appropriate and thats where it all started.
