How to Open Your Presents Early

Can’t wait to open your Christmas presents? Are you dying of curiosity? Wait no longer. There’s a Wikihow for that. (Can you believe it?) You’ll receive step-by-step instructions on how to sneak a peak at your presents without anyone finding out. Or you could always bug your parents until they finally cave. That’s what Hodge and Podge did. They received one very big present this week. The suspense was killing them, so I let them open just this one…

Our dear friend, Bill Brown, sent us this gorgeous picture he drew of the main character from his web comic The Evil Squirrel’s Nest. Evil Squirrel, or ES for short, is a loveable gray squirrel who has a great sense of humor and a lot of quirky and interesting friends from all walks of the animal kingdom.

Thank you, Bill!  We feel very lucky to receive this coveted prize.

Explore Your World

It feels like summer here in Denver, and I’m feeling the urge to get out and explore. Last night I went to my first drawing class in ten years. Today I went with some friends to the Postscript exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art. And tomorrow my husband and I are going to really  take advantage of the warm weather and go hiking. I mean really, how often can you go hiking in January? You have to seize these moments while they last. So get out there. Try something new and make your own adventure.
