Posted by: | 13 Comments

For weeks now, most have been getting ready for Halloween with costumes, decorations, pumpkin patches and carvings and all-around spookiness.  I’ve never been a big Halloween celebrator, but I’m obviously getting into it now that my girl can have fun with it.  Which is really what this holiday is for-just having fun, getting great pictures and over-dosing on all sorts of sweets.

Big Art for Little Hands

Posted by: | No Comments

That’s exactly the way the publishers describe this Frida Kahlo Coloring Book for children: Big art for little hands.  And this is one I really want to get my own hands on.  I can even imagine myself begging my two-year old to sit down and color with me the fascinating 32 pages on this book.  She would probably be over it after roughly squiggling undefined lines with a couple of colors, while I sit there patiently trying to recreate theRead More ...
