Mural Progress & New Gocco Art Cards!

I LOVE my new Gocco!! It arrived from Japan a week ago, but I was so busy working on the mural that I didn't have time to play with it right away. I wanted to try it out using some imagery that everyone loves, Alice in Wonderland. I burned my screens and printed the note cards above in classic black ink on cream. I love how they turned out, and each one has slight variations due to the nature of screen printing by hand. If you are interested in purchasing these, they are available in my Etsy Shop now.

Here are a couple of pictures on the progress we've made in the last week on the mural. We got all of the grid, letters and numbers transferred up onto the wall, and started painting the base coat colors behind each letter. The letters and numbers, and the border around it will be painted in black, and the Center Unified logo will be a separate large circle of wood that will be mounted in the center of the banner. The high school students are doing a great job helping out with this, and I will have more pictures to show you next week!

Are you a "Pink" girl? In the past I would have said no....preferring blues and greens to pink. But when it was time to upgrade my cell phone, which one caught me eye??? The pink one! I just love it!! It has little pink crystals and pink numbers that light up on the keypad, and it slides up to open...how fun is that? So I guess I am a "Pink" girl now!

Hi Sylvia,
We have something in common, I also grew into enjoying pink!At 49yrs my 3 favourite shirts are pink.
I'm due an upgrade. Such a tuff choice sooo many phones to choose from. Will have to take my 17year olds advice.Can't wait to see the finished result of "THE WALL."
