Episode 23: Little Red Easel

Amy Podcast

I’m finally getting it posted a day late, but…

    ~ I attend the dance-along at school that marked the end of the 10-week dance rotation for the kindergarten class and marvel at a creative “crayon” approach to stretching
    ~ the little one paints and colors “lists” and “spells” lots of things which “Gramma will like,” the boys paint at the easel and I sit in the rocker, the designated paper towel holder and brush wiper, and Matthew leaves a painted message on the top of Spencer’s painting a la the artist Gregory in All I See
    ~ Dave at Chub Creek talks about being behind the lens or mic versus being in the moment and remembering taking pictures versus [Episode 74: Home Boy] and I pause to remember the rocker and the little red easel over the last few years
    ~ I think about music in our house and in my history
    ~ I turn up Marnie Maclean’s Pismo Hat as a definite “maybe” for my brother [see also her similar but stockinette Carlsbad Hat]
    ~ Ace Young (American Idol contestant who wore the beanie [and referred to it as his “comfort”]; see photo)
    ~ Wikipedia definitions of and differentations between the Toque and the Beanie
    ~ I start catching up on blogs and find Jana Bouc’s fabulous monoprint entry, mention of the tempting Casino shawl, mention of a book called No One Cares What You Had for Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog by Margaret Mason, Manda at Tree Fall shows pictures from the A is for Artist book I mentioned a few weeks ago [see Nov 2
    ~ Anika points me in the direction of gift tag swaps [see this Flickr album]
    ~ a return address label prompt inspired by the collision of the coming holidays and my reading of Griffin and Sabine (remember, Sabine is a stamp designer) and regret that we don’t (yet) have a tradition of making and mailing hand-made or home-designed holiday cards
    ~ and more… (show length: 1hr, 02 min)
