Madeline wasn't sure if it was the cheese
or the atmosphère in Paris,
but she was inspired to paint many great things
while on her recent trip there....

|This is a tribute to all of the Super Moms |
(and dads, you know who you are) out there
who have ALMOST made it through the summer,
entertaining the little people in our lives.
So, I am sure you have had your share of
Monopoly, arts and crafts, tennis, soccer, museums, beaches, pools,
musicals, day trips, zoos...camping, kayaking, movies, sleepovers...and more, right?
So, With Starbucks in hand I salute YOU!
I love my girls more than anything else in the whole world,
we've had a great summer, but now I am ready for a little camp of my own...
maybe a weekend here, or here...no plans, no ideas, no agendas just ME.
This drawing was actually inspired by my friend, Sophia, who hosts Sunday Sketches, here.
She's pretty super, herself!
Please visit her at The Blue Chair Diary for some great sketches and wonderful artists...
won't you join us this week?

I like to refer to August as
at my house.
Regular camp is over, and I am the official camp counselor around here...now.
Ok, so we've done just about everything on our list this year.
So, today, we discovered a great new art supply shop.
I just love a good art store...so inspiring, everything is so colorful...so new and clean....
we picked up some Prismacolor markers, I have never really worked with markers before, but I had fun with the colors we bought and this little drawing.
the only bad thing? there was no Starbucks anywhere....in sight....
and we need a lot of that, at Camp Mom....
Enjoy your day!

I just had a wonderful lunch at Blue Smoke, one of my favorite NYC Restaurant.
The best part, other than the mouthwatering barbecue ribs?
They serve up little pig sugar cookies for the kids to decorate
and while you eat they cook their mini-creations.
You can check it out, here

We've been quite busy this week around here, ...I like to call it Camp Mom!
So, here is my Sunday Sketch . It's the rough draft of an invitation we are creating forSummer's
8th birthday party...
We are having a special screening of Camp Rock 2 The Final Jam....
the sketch begins with an idea of what I have in my head...to make the invitation unique!
(lots of ideas, there, by the way).
and this is what the end result looks like....You can't see the glitter on this one, but the popcorn is accentuated with sparkly glitter... the end result is so fun!
For more sketches visit my friends over at The Blue Chair Diary, here...why not join us?
also, here is a sketch I did for an idea I had for Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesdays.
The theme is Sea...maybe you will join us over there,
I went with a different sketch in the end, but "Sea" would have been a perfect name for
Summer and Saylor's sister, don't you think?

Down by the sea, she read an old favorite, Gift From the Sea

"Go outside and find something to do... "
"Use your imagination," cried Sophie's mom,
So, Sophie caged up her favorite stuffed animals
and took off for the zoo....

Not only are fedoras all over the streets of NYC,
but they are in every magazine I've picked up this past week.
Worn by such greats as Gene Kelly, Humprey Bogart,
and now teen idol Miley Cirus,
spins on the classic fedora are everywhere this fall.
( I actually saw one on the beach Saturday!)
So, what's your take? Are you a hat person....?
Do you Adora the fedora?
I found find some here. Try a few on for size.
This is such a fun group, have you thought about joining us?
Please do, we would love to see what you've got sketched!
