Days 129 and 130: Buttons and Big Butts

17 May

Another combo post….I really need to get my act together!

Anyway, so yesterday (Monday) I doodled up another curvy mermaid for my collection.  I still need to fine tune her, but here’s the general idea…


There she is…a chubby fishy acrobat.  I personally love the look of sheer bliss on her face as she does her little backflip…don’t you?

So much for that portion of our program.  Today’s giggle is brought to you by a lovely Brit named Mary Poppins!

In ev'ry job that must be done
There is an element of fun
you find the fun and snap!
The job's a game

And ev'ry task you undertake
Becomes a piece of cake
A lark!  Aspree!
It's very clear to me...

Sing it with me now!  A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down…. lalalalalala

We all know the song, but how many of you have ever really thought about the lyrics?  Making chores fun?  Really?????  Well, today I decided to give it a try.  granted, I didn’t pull a Mary Poppins and use magic, nor did I strap brushed to my feet and skate around Pippi Longstocking style, but I did my best to make something that I normally consider a pain in the tuchas into something that put a smile on my face.

Today was mending day!

Meet my sad little raincoat...

We basically had a monsoon here in NY today, and the powers that be said it will rain heavily all week.  I dragged my raincoat out of the closet and noticed several buttons missing…I HATE sewing buttons.  You have no idea how much I hate it.  However, if I’ve got to do it, I might as well make it interesting…


Out to the store I went and spent a good hour in the button aisle.  I found these awesome purple and turquoise painted buttons to replace the boring tortoise ones.  Now my raincoat actually functions (I can finally button the hood on all the way!) and it looks perky amidst all this dreary weather.  I can’t wait to wear it tomorrow!!
