t’s Friday, which is totally cause for celebration (actually, any day of the week you’re on this flower-filled Earth is cause for celebration, right?!?). Just a friendly reminder, though – don’t get SO pumped that you forget any deadlines. You don’t want to be caught unawares like this little sugar glider.
(Yes, that sugar glider is wearing a cavalier hat and wielding a sword. Yes, he is cavorting in a field of snapdragons. Why? Not like it needs explanation…in the world of folk-art, anything goes! But I’ll give you one anyway. See, every year the Catholic school system back in my hometown does a big fundraising auction. Since I’m an alum, my mom – also known as my agent – thought it would be fun if I created a custom piece of folk art to donate. This incorporates the motto (“That’s due today??”) and class flower (snapdragon) that the high school senior class chose. The school mascot is a cavalier. And we all KNOW they would have chosen the sugar glider as their class animal if they had only been asked to vote on such a thing. So there you have it! Doesn’t the watercolor make SO MUCH SENSE now?)
Now that Bobby and I are back in Miami after the most whirlwind week and a half of working the Masters Tournament, I’m back in business! Your Biggest Fan, reporting for duty. See you on Sunday, friends!
What a wonderful thing to donate for the auction! You ought to print today’s blog and include it. Everybody needs a little Grace! I know you must have had fun at the Masters – welcome home!
Thanks so much, Martha! Good idea about printing out this blog post and including it – I’ll get my agent on that. ;) Yes, the Masters was wonderful! Hopefully I’ll post a little more about it soon…
Grace. this is so funny and cute! Some lucky senior is going to get a unique graduation gift of your folk art. I’m so proud of both you and Leah for supporting your Alma Mater. Way to go!!!
Thanks, Mom! And thanks for the initial idea of donating – it will be fun to be a part of, even from far away!
So glad to hear you and your sugar gliders are back in business! :) I have a piece of your sugar glider folk art on my wall and would have gladly auctioned for it, so I think it’s a great donation.
Happy Folk Art Friday!
Wooo hooo, I’m glad that Stephen brought that over to you!! That makes me happy to know it’s on your wall. Fly, little sugar glider, fly!
I , too, think it’s great you donated to your alma mater, Grace. The little sugar glider is adorable! So glad you are back in Miami and back online! xoxo Gini
Thanks so much, Gini! It’s good to be back and settled into the blog again! xoxo
