Your Uncle Bee

I am a huge fan of honey bees. I don’t particularly like honey that much but I love bees for what they do.
If it was legal in Toledo, I’d keep bees but alas it is not.

You can thank a honey bee for your even being here and if you would, think of them as family members.
In fact, consider this your Uncle Bee. 😀

On August 3, 1901, Jebidiah Wrote the Funniest Joke EVER

I am absolutely loved this guy’s face. He’s got the tiniest little smirk, like he knows something you don’t and it’s REALLY funny. He really looked like he was just holding back from busting into laughter.
I imagine he was a pretty awesome fellow to know in walking life.

My thought was that he wrote the funniest joke EVER – and now we have to wonder what it is.

Stalker Moon

We were watching the movie “Arthur” and there’s this bit where the love interest of Arthur tells him when she was a little girl, she believed the moon followed her and it meant she was going to be something special.
It got me thinking – what if it wasn’t an optical illusion, what if the moon really was following you?
How creepy would that be?

Red Ribbon Guy


I wanted to do something different with this guy.
He had the usual hair and the usual suit and the usual expression you see over and over and over in vintage photos (yes i know why people rarely smiled in these old photos ).
And so I wanted to make him special, unique even.
Everyone deserves that.
So i started with some amazing blonde hair then it needed something…. a hat? No…. a RIBBON.
And here you have Stanley with his amazing hair with this amazing ribbon.
He will be the envy of all your other art on your walls.

Answer the Phone

If you know me, you know I detest talking on the phone. I love letters, emails, even text messages and nothing beats face to face for a great chat. But I hate the phone.

Now, out of all the people in the world I could have partnered with in life, my partner Skinney hates the phone too.  Neither of our kids enjoy talking on the phone.

So, when the phone rings at our house, this is usually the conversation that ensues…
