Good thing its for a baby!

I could not think of what to give my girlfriend who is expecting.  She likes to be original.  So original is what I gave her.  A hand drawn monkey onsie & bib.  I am not an artist in any way shape or form.  I would love to take art classes and really learn how to draw.  Well this little set was my first attempt with fabric crayons & an outliner pen from Pentel.  They worked great.  Very smooth and easy.  All you do is heat set.  I heat set the bib a little to much. It stuck to itself in the back.  I will get her another one to go with it.  But I cannot break up the set. 🙂

I had a confernece call with the Principal, teacher and school nurse about Maxx.  We are all on the same page now.  SO, hopefully we can get things under control.

    Such a cute baby gift. There is nothing like an original work of art – I think you did a great job for a first attempt at this.

    So glad to hear that you had the conference call re: Maxx. It’s good to present a united front. Hope he begins to enjoy school.
