Random Updates and Activities

The holiday's were great....parties, family fun and a few more parties,....and then a new year began.
Time to focus on work again....deadlines begin to creep closer, a few friends worry about my whereabouts while I hibernate, and then...... I got an email from Erica at "I am Beyond Rubies" wondering why I haven't blogged. Thank you so much feels good to know I'm missed here :)

So this is what I've been up to. (just in case you were wondering as well). Lots of work and of course plenty of play. Still haven't found a perfect balance of the two but I don't know if that's even possible. All I can say is that so far... this year has been so much FUN!

A licensing project for Round Tree Visuals I've working on since last summer has just been installed at Orange County Children's Hospital.

Just finished and turned in my street banner for this years Arts Alive project.

....and then for fun

Hanging out with my silly nephews.

Then I saw this Dad...? huh?

really?...I don't care how comfortable that stroller is....seriously dude!?
I had no choice but to take your picture and I think you knew what I was up to cause you got out right after. (say cheeeese!)

and then I went to a few "Barn Parties" at my friends amazing barn down the street.
The first one was going to be a disco party but then changed to a regular gig. I thought it would be fun to go in costume anyway

....which was hysterical! Here I am posing proudly in my blonde afro.

..and then they had a western themed birthday party! I'm a sucker for any costume party, can you tell?

Yesturday, we had extreme low tides, so the family gathered at Seaside to check out the tide pools. My sister and I found some beautiful Starfish(sea stars) That's my sister on the left, me in the hat.

....then family members started to gather around. Brother-in-law Zuri holding Healey and Ethan in his red hoodie. not pictured..Catharine, Lara and Cruz

So as you can see, there has yet to be a dull moment around here and that's how I like it. Hope you all are finding some time to enjoy your friends and family too. ;) Karin
