Mmm, Noodles.

I just re-read my last post whereby I signed off with "It keeps the noodle noodling." I must be hungry, because all I can think about is noodles. Mmm, noodles...

Freaky Tikis

Greetings! "Tiki" is the theme for next week's Spoonflower design competition...

My almost-2-year-old daughter was playing with our wine corks - sorting them, throwing them, etc. and I realized that they were shaped like tikis. [I should take this opportunity to note that I've been holding on to the corks with the thought of using them for a craft project - like placecard/menu holders, or even slicing them to make a "real" cork board. My husband would just as soon that I throw them, my darling, you're in the clear...I take full responsibility for our tupperware of corks. I shoulder any/all judgment on the matter.] ;)

I don't see many photographic entries on Spoonflower (maybe there is good reason for that...), but I liked the idea of using them for my entry. It also opened my mind to using more mixed media - and even "decorating" some of our family photos - so I'm declaring the venture a personal success regardless of the outcome of the competition. Just one more reason I like submitting my work to Spoonflower's competitions. It keeps the noodle noodling...

Hand Puppets

Patty Cakes, Patty Cakes
Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man.
Bake me a cake as fast as you can;
Pat it and prick it and mark it with B,
Put it in the oven for baby and me.

Patty cake, patty cake, baker's man.
Bake me a cake as fast as you can;
Roll it up, roll it up;
And throw it in a pan!
Patty cake, patty cake, baker's man.
