New Gutter Girlz Prompt and Other News

Just a friendly reminder from this dirty girl....Challenge #12 is UP over at Gutter Girlz! And I am SO stoked to announce that the amazing Linda Woods joined us this time as our first EVAH honorary Gutter Girl! Check it out and play along! We love to wallow in the gutter with company. It's so much more fun that way! :) Here is what I came up with:

And Rick wasn't even surprised to see me photographing myself hanging upside-down off the edge of the couch. Apparently I do things like that pretty often. Hey, I'm an artist. We're supposed to be eccentric, right?

And speaking of art, I finished my December Daily Album over the weekend. I used an old hardback book, cut it apart and covered the outside with fabric. Sorry for the crap picture...I took it at night, so the light was bad. I'm pretty dern excited to fill this with pictures and notes from our month! Stay tuned for more updates on this project.


Okay, one last thing....over the weekend, Jacob and Jack decided to slather Jacob's head in Vaseline. Just one more reason to be suspicious when the two of them are quiet for more than 5 minutes! I took this picture of Jacob after I had washed his head with Dawn THREE times...and he STILL has crazy greasy hair. So, to recap: Vaseline + hair = NOT GOOD. Also, getting Vaseline in your eyes is apparently not a good thing and makes for one grouchy baby. Especially after having your head vigorously scrubbed and being forced to hold still by an overly caring mother who doesn't want to get dishsoap in your eyes. *sigh* I think this pic says it all.

I can imagine walking in & seeing you upside down taking pics of yourself. I wouldn't think twice about it either.

i love that picture of rick and jacob! you should definitely frame it. it's one of my favorites. jacob really does look so cute grumpy! i never see him grumpy. he's always smiling. did the vaseline end up coming all the way out then?
