Arts and Crafts with Superman


Join me in "Wednesday's Walk down memory lane."
---

I desperately wanted to post an April Fools memory today, but I don’t have any! Oh well...

I couldn’t think of anything to write about this morning, so I started going through my pictures for inspiration. I think you’ll all appreciate this one.



You like? This was a combined effort of Jonas’ and my psychedelic artistry. Jonas did the original cutout (except for the ears, which I added later). Also, the big “S” on his chest was a product of me li’l bro’s brilliant mind and ability to reproduce what he sees on the cover of coloring books perfectly. Oh yeah…he’s the man. The face is my favorite part. Jonas drew it first—little dots for the eyes, a thin line for the mouth, big arches for eyebrows, and the nose pretty much stayed the same. Then, I—of course, being the stellar big sister that I am—took Bobo’s work of art and “enhanced” it with my aptitude for shading and detail work. (Check out that cleft!) Pretty classic result…I’m rather fond of it. Oh, and you’ve got to love the hair. Bo thought that was pretty hilarious; it had him laughing hysterically.

What an adorable picture.

Abigail, This was a cute post with the picture of Superman that you,...and Jonas did together.

Your new blog layout is so neat. It is sort of elegant, and yet mysterious. And has the foreign flair that you like.

Good Job!
You are so creative, and talented, and you never cease to amaze me.

Love, Grandma Linda

Abigail, I love the picture AND the layout! But the best part is Jonas's great big smile. :-)

I have a little event going on at my blog called "You're a Hero", and I would love for you to link to this post (or another one if you want!) next week.

I love how you worked together with your brother to create your "Superman". Very sweet. You have so many gifts, Abigail. I love how you share them with your family and others.

Also...your blog looks great! I enjoyed my visit.

Vera said...

LOVE the blog makeover!! If your ears were burning today, it's because I was talking about you on my blog today ;)

Tanya said...

That was well done!

Like your new blog layout as well. :)

Patricia said...

Before I knew whose blog it was I was visiting, I thought "Oh, cool I like this one." I was expected great things from it by the quality of the design. And I wasn't disappointed. Did you design it yourself? I need to do something with mine, but I don't know how to begin. Any tips?

Sarah Robbins said...

I love the new blog layout and name! Very creative!

BLB Beets said...

Okay Abs! I was a little worried cuz when I saw your new blog look I thought it reminded me of The Tower of Terror - a little spooky. Then another comment mentioned the Eiffel Tower and I thought, "What Eiffel Tower?" The dawn arrived and I realized I was handicapped cuz Aunt Lisa doesn't have a new fancy computer with a wide screen monitor, so I was only seeing black and grey. I can scroll over to the right just enough to catch a glimpse! I'm sure it's just lovely, and quirky and artistic like you :)

You got your new design done so quickly, you challenge your old auntie to get her multiple endeavors spruced up. Maybe I can set aside a little time each day until they're done.

Great Job (and I love your post & your collab with my incredibly handsome nephew!)

Love, Aunt Lisa

Lucy said...

I love how the things we make together carry the memory with them.

You have an award on my blog today!

Julie said...

Cute pic! I was wondering what your new blog title would be! Sorry I wasn't any help...I'm SO not good at those things!! :)

Looks great!

Oksana said...

Firstly, your blog layout is awesome -- has a very classy, European feel to it. Secondly, I LOVE that story and picture. :)

Olivia said...

haha, everytime I hear a story about your family I want to meet you guys in person more and more! :)

I also love the new layout! It's beautiful! I actually come over here because I was on your grandma's blog and saw the different button and wanted to see if you had changed your entire theme. Great job yet again Abs!

BLB Beets said...

Hi Abigail! Okay, I looked at your blog again on Uncle Brad's church laptop, which is MUCH newer than our home computer...now I get it! Ha ha. I like the new look (just wish I could see it on my screen - some day :))

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
