Tweenaldee and Tweenaldum

Close to the end of a long and sweet day. Phil's momma flew in late last night, and we stayed up getting her settled in. Got up early of course, with the kiddos to get them out the door.

I'm working with a great group of kids at the Edmunds Middle School, helping them make the set and props for their production of Alice in Wonderland. It's been years since I've worked with kids this age, and wasn't sure at first at how well it could go. Today was our second meeting, and I was so impressed with the work they did, and how smart and fun they all were. We're working on a series of doors for Alice to choose from, and they created these funky, wild, bold doors that look just magical. Over the next few weeks we'll make tea cups and a hooka, a "Drink Me" bottle and a mushroom... time to roll up our sleeves, pull out the plaster of paris, and have some fun. I'm so glad I signed up for this one. It's a wonderful way to be creative and spread some art-joy with others.
