a DIY and a Laugh and a Boy

a DIY and a Laugh and a Boy

As promised, a few little projects.

 {title illustration – Garance Dore}
I sprayed some gold.
 I sprayed some white.
 I painted some black.
Tres bien.
Oh and I have to show you this.
My daughter is kind of a photography/computer genius.
She takes old paintings and morphs her friends into them using Photoshop.
And edit…one more…my little Mac attack just woke up from his nap- yes waaay too late at almost 5 o’clock, which means he’s be in bed at like, I don’t know, 10!
 But… heck he’s adorable.

Funny you mention photoshop- currently downloading trial to finally get a grips on it. And last but not least, your adorable son; you’ve produced some beautiful children!

    I so love what a little paint can do…but not as much as I love the stinkin’ cute little face of your tiny man! Oh mama, you are going to have your hands full with all the girls chasing that one! (c: Darling.

    So funny, I was using spray paint last weekend (a rarity for me) but my projects aren’t nearly as chic!

    Just caught up on your recent posts…..love the talent of your daughter and her photoshop, not to mention your guest post.

    So much good stuff!!!
