A Date to Remember

Way to go Babe!!!!!!!My daughter won second place at the Art Show at her High School!!!!
Most of her work is oil or acrylic painting with candy wrapper collages.  The top left the backround and sunglasses are buttons---you know I love that.
This ended up being contreversial....the backround is beer and champagne caps.  The high school didn't think it was appropriate, so she couldn't have it in the show.  Well I thought it was great and am proud to show her to the blogworld.  Her hair is made from magazine clippings and her shirt Hershey truffle wrappers and the jewelry is can tabs. 

 

More good news---my niece had a baby boy at 4:05 pm today.  He is 8 lbs. and his name is Brady.  My grandparents last name was Brady.  We are so thrilled with the name.  Welcome to the world Brady!!!  I did get on a jury today, so I have to do my duty next week, too.
