Today Momo & I painted faces for the Chantilly Flutterfest.  Three and a half hours of non stop little faces in our chairs asking for rainbows, hearts, and most surprisingly, snakes.  I swear I’ve never painted so many snakes!  My favorite request was a little girl who wanted me to paint a self portrait on …

Because I love the little star bullets

Kind of a lot going on lately. Booked hotel & flight to Vegas, baby!  So excited!  CSP has Vegas programmed into the custom weather tracker thing on the tv.  He checks it all the time.  I’m like what’s to check?  It’s constantly hellishly hot.  Our room at the Paris is only $69 a night!  Woot!  …
