So much busyness around Casapinka! Birthdays and lots of hot weather. Flash floods and potato printing. Note: Tough little ninja's don't want sheets with little printed houses on them. "Couldn't you put guns or knives or at least some blood, mommy?"
Today, I bring you a long time favorite artist of mine, Nina van de Goor. I just adore this platter and plate set and I'd hang it on my kitchen wall immediately if it fell into my lap. The colors and whimsical graphics make me feel so optimistic! Today is yoga and swimming at the Y followed by some more printing with the kids and cupcakes for the birthday. Somehow the kid in question managed to stretch her birthday celebration to three days! We found the most wonderful chocolate cupckake and frosting recipe using alkalinized dutch cocoa or some such thing and the entire family is crying out for them. Then, finishing touches on the 18 foot curtain I made to divide their room. I went for broke bolting in large cables to the studs (who's a stud?) and 6 simple panel curtains later, it is a very impressive split into two equally sized rooms. It's as if the wildebeest and lion have been mercifully separated although they still share legos on a regular basis.
