bad hair day

For breakfast this morning I made some bran muffins and they were so good! The best thing about this recipe? They come in a packet and you just add milk and bake. That's the kind of cooking I can stand behind!
Since I feature artists on here I thought I'd feature a couple who are near and dear to me. My nieces Elizabeth and Emily Kate make the best artwork for me.
This amazing drawing by Elizabeth is hanging on my fridge. My favorite things about this drawing are my hot dog fingers (that figure in red is me, pre-blond hair) the the toes that stick off to the side. I also love what Elizabeth has written in the bubbles. She is saying that she loves her Aunt Ann, her baby brother Charlie is saying Ga ga goo goo, and for some reason her younger sister Emily Kate is saying "Bad hair day!!" That is so funny! I can only figure that Elizabeth was trying to make herself look better than her sister? I'm not sure but I love it. It sort of reminds me of the Tammy Pierce is Unlovable comics in the back of Bust magazine. If you've never read them stop what you're doing and go read them now!! Now!!
These drawings are Emily Kates. When we draw together I always draw houses and hearts so she does, too. I think hers are better. I'm only a little jealous about it.

Today I have to rearrange my studio because of the enormous structure I just built, okay had built. I'll take some pictures and watch as some mysterious begin to reveal themselves.

Have a good Wednesday!

Kids are the best. Why is her sister saying bad hair day? I don't know, but it's awesome.

isn't it amazing? Elizabeth called me to complain about me saying she drew hot dog fingers and also said she had no idea why she wrote bad hair day. i love it!
