My family (groan)

At the same time I posted the toddler anecdote (below), I emailed it to my extended family. Here's a sample of their responses:

My sister-in-law: Another resourceful problem-solver in the family! Lack of paint? Snot a problem!

My sister: Why stop at the back of his hand? Offer him a nice, large canvas -- the booger the better!

My brother-in-law: That Daniel is multi-talented -- what will he pick next? Perhaps we're blowing this up into something it'snot. Then again, when a young artist runs at the world, we shouldn't react by turning up our noses (or by making back-handed compliments).

My husband: Well, actually, I think this is all due to a simple misunderstanding. Daniel must have heard us talking about artists from the Flemish school.



  • Your extended family sounds a lot like mine!

    Love the new web design.

  • Witty family! :) Only problem with that kind of painting is you need a lot of cold germs to keep yourself supplied in 'paint'.

    Love, love, love your new design! Love how her hair is flipped over while she reads. Love how the letters act as a bench. The only thing I would change would be the sock colors. But that's just me.

    You're going to get a lot of people asking you for blog design help! I'm very proud of you. :)

  • Full disclosure: I didn't draw the girl with the book. I downloaded her. But I could easily change the color of her socks. What color d'you think they should be, mrsd? Hey, I know! I'll give her those tube socks that we used to wear. White with three colored stripes around the top. Remember those?

  • I can hardly believe that that they all responded with a pun....what a family you have!

    Love the new design too. I have lots of catching up to do - I've been away.

  • Julie,
    It's the orange color at the bottom that is throwing me off. :)
