kindergarten creations

This weekend was glorious. Im growing super fond of 'soffe' shorts, and lounging around in big tshirts. These are my weekend essentials. I love them! I didnt get around to making the dress this weekend by a series of events (the main one being I was just too lazy!) BUT I did make the key-lime pie, and I have to say it was the best pie I have ever made. It was perfect. I doubled the amount of lime it called for, because I love sour things, and it was just amazing. I have to admit that between nathan and I, we ate the whole pie last night, and I even wanted to make another this morning..I need to learn more self control!

So on Saturday at the Youth Festival, I spent most of my time in the "Art Space" painting with kids and such. I have never been an art type of person. The best I can draw is stick people, and even those are horrible. I like to paint more with my fingers than I do with brushes, and I never want anything to make sense...and voila, this is what I produce!

  4. Hi Kat! Im not too sure about summer programs, I have never done a summer program before...I would just do as much research as you can online. There is probably a short terms trip that you could go on for fairly cheap! Let me know if you find anything :)

  9. Gorgeous outfit and that is some cool art.
    Totally know what you mean about preferring 'abstract' sorta art. I can't draw or paint things, but I love mixed media and splashing around paint to create something beautiful :)

  11. oh those artworks are so cool. I love thing that incorporate words (english major = word freak, or, major english word freak)
    I especially love the first one; when I discovered that quote almost a year ago I was and still am very moved by it.

    the pie sounds amazing, it would totally make a good breakfast!

    can't wait to hear your news! I hope you're having a marvelous monday <3

  14. You're art is super lovely!I love all the words on them too, really inspiring.

    Man, I meant to finish a dress this weekend too, and I should have since all I had to do was a zipper and the hem. But I avoided it since they are my two least favorite things! Ah, laziness at it's best I guess :]

  16. Mmmmm, I absolutely LOVE key lime pie! It's one of my favorites, especially when it's tangy and a little more bitter than usual. Sounds delicious. And your paintings are wonderful...I love the "I want to live" one, but they are all so cute! Who knew finger painting could result in such masterpieces? :p

  24. It's so funny whenever Brett and I make something - especially confetti cake - we can't just eat a slice, we have to finish it off within a day! Hehe! :)
