Leap Year (post dated)

It will take a full 366 calendar days for the Earth to travel around the Sun this year. I love that.

I read some funny old notions about Leap Day on Sailing Over a Cardboard Sea, a cutie little blog I follow. I had no idea that my red petticoats had such a practical purpose.

Our handmade Valentine tradition continues. These bear a strong resemblance to last year's love notes.

everyday is Valentine's Day with you, dude

Mr. C and I have no grand plans for this Valentine's day. He works. I work. Maybe we'll exchange hand made cards, as is our tradition. We really have so many great days together... any random Wednesday could lead to a lovers adventure. It's like everyday is Valentine's Day.

Also, today is my ma's birthday. So she gets our love and attention too.

art and coffee

The Oak Grove student show at Coffee Connection is in full swing.

To say that our opening reception was poorly attended would be an understatement. But I'm still super proud of the amazing art these creative kids have up.

If you're lucky enough to live in the Ojai Valley or close by in Ventura County, swing by Coffee Connection for a coffee and some artistic inspiration.

sunshine and screen printing

For the first 2 weeks of this Oak Grove semester, a couple of us teachers and a small group of students spent our afternoons screen printing.

The students got so into their designs, took so much time and care.

And the results were amazing. It was so fun. I didn't want it to end.

Here are some of the gals on a much deserved coffee break after hours of art making.

summer in February

This winter weather is unreal. Mr. C and I couldn't resist a stroll on the beach at Montecito.

It's not hard to see why it's called the American Riviera. Beautiful.

And the crystal clear sunset... dang. It was a totally perfect day, sandy feet and all. How did you spend your Saturday?


Mr. C and I quite like being out and about around town. So much in fact, that we're going to start sharing our wanderings & ramblings on a new blog, Bungalow. It's not all the way ready yet, but we'll keep you... posted.
