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.

What adorable little skate boarders!

Love your book! Is the cover patterned paper, or did you stamp it?

I also love your art in Mom's guest room and totally want to steal it. I especially love the yellow/orange one in the middle. You are so talented!
