Askew Architecture for CFFC
“This week’s topic is Architecture. What types of building appeal to you: Modern Art, Historical, Colonial, Gothic, European, Asian, Commercial, Industrial? Take your pick. Any building that you like, for any reason, is appropriate for this week’s challenge.”
I love this building. Soon, if not already, it’s going to be gutted. It was my yoga studio for ten years. I say it was mine, but I didn’t own it. It was, however, my second home. This photo is from one of my last nights there. The photo is a bit askew because it matched my mood.
The yoga studio is becoming a realtor’s office. Such a waist of beautiful architecture.
Happiness is your first dance recital!
The Daily Post Photo Challenge
Jubilant, adjective: showing great joy, satisfaction, or triumph; rejoicing; exultant.
You could have cut the jubilant energy in this dressing room with a knife! These little girls and boys were beside themselves with excitement, giggles, and tons of pride as they experienced their first ever dance recital. And it was certainly contagious for all of their family and friends. We hooted and hollered together in the audience and as they tapped and tip-toed like pros! The celebration lasted long into the afternoon and all weekend with lunch, ice cream, flowers, and tons of hugs, kisses, and accolades. This mama was beaming with pride!
Congratulations, Emma! Dance on, my love.
Ranger Rick Rocks with the Whizpops!
How could you go wrong with a group called The Whizpops? Ranger Rick and his pals (both animal and human) offer up some really great songs about life in the wilderness. Swift Fox starts the CD with a catchy tune about how fast and sly he is. Walrus Song tells you why “everything’s better with a mustache”. And the Black Footed Ferret is cute as can be as he sings about his night time antics.
This is the first in a planned series of albums, created to support the conservation efforts of the National Wildlife Federation.
From Sugar Mountain PR:
The Whizpops! are a Parents’ Choice and Creative Child Award-winning band featuring two elementary school teachers (Kevin Cashman and Casey Schaefer) and a fluid assortment of other talented musicians with a love of nature and science (upright bassist Steve Kalling is a language arts professor; and drummer Daniel Kiely is a wealth manager, by day, for example). This talented bunch rocks venues large and small, delighting audiences of all ages. “Their lyrics are for young children, but their music will entertain most any adult,” the Missoulian notes. Their three previous science themed albums were The Adventures of Stretch McCoy (2012) andScience and Wonder (2013) and Sea Blue Sea (2014).

Really Crafty Link Party #19
Bridal banner from Oh BaBee! Originals made for a friend of a friend last spring. I loved the color and theme choices. This was made with cloth doilies, card stock, beach/ocean embellishments, white rope, and adhesive lettering. I especially appreciate photos from the recipients as my handiwork hopefully blesses their lives with joy and good fortune.
Oh BaBee! Originals started when I was pregnant with my daughter and wanted to make something special for her nursery. Since then, I have made special gifts for brides, new moms, neighbors, friends, and charitable organizations . I enjoy the creative work and being part of such special occasions.
