I've been busy this week painting a nursery (with giant pink polka dots!) for a friend, but had a minute to share (i.e. brag about :-) something my daughter made. I just loved this little horse print from a "woodcut" she did in art class recently. She carved her design onto a thin piece of foam rubber, then made several prints. I might give it a try myself.

[Addendum: And be sure to check Suzanne's blog--she's having a give away.]

Update January 19: Here's the wall which I finished today--You can't really tell how it relates to the rest of the room, but the colors and style coordinate with her bedding, etc. Each dot took about 4 coats of paint to cover the chocolate background. Baby "R" is due on Monday, so we finished in just the nick of time.

That print was beautifully done - she gets her creativity from you I guess? I just stumbled across your blog and read back three posts.. after belly-laughing out loud at the story of Friendly and the bat, oh my gosh, I'll definitely have to stop over again...

Have a great day-

Love the slide show of things from your shop, and the print your daughter did.

I was always doing horses at that age too. Must be a girl thing!
