summer projects…

hello friends…

this summer has been great and challenging at the same time. not just because of the heat but having my four and half year old daughter home for her first summer vacation. we’ve done little crafts here and there and i thought i would just share them all with you!

last month we made owl masks and i must say, i am rather impressed with them. they were quick and fun to do and she had a blast!

last week, nat and i made what i called a little box of happiness. i used an old cell phone box, cut some paper, made a few holes and used a lot of glue and tape. natalie colored the clouds and cut the grass and here the result of our little crafty labor:

i’ve been chronicling our every day life at my livejournal, owlacrobat or what i have titled as ‘the curious musings of an ordinary life‘. also, as most of you might gather, i love being in new places so i have decided to just use plurk as an avenue to share various links and use brightkite instead for all my microblogging and random cell phone pictures i take. i am still on twitter, because, well, you just gotta love twitter but more entries (and pictures!) will be on brightkite. oh, and i have added two tumblrs to my list of places to be. finding moths in my pockets is like a little online scrapbook for me, also featuring photos and artwork of mine and other photos i find from other sources that are intriguing and lovely. i also happened to pick up a little miniature horse whom i have named aesop and am beginning to record his ‘travels’ at his own place as well. feel free to peruse in all my little nooks in internetland!

so tell me, how is your summer panning out?


p.s. i forgot to share, i finally have a homepage for littlebighead as well. it’s simple and easy to navigate. it’s at!
