My daughter has recently become obsessed with the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Being that her birthday is coming up in a few days, she requested a Stay Puft toy. I looked everywhere to find one, but came up empty handed. Luckily I had a project that fell through, so I had the time to finish this for her birthday.
I just finished a commission, though the final product is not what was intended (above). I was experimenting with a new product to clear coat these panels. Unfortunately it made all the ink smudge and I was forced to do another layer over it. Luckily, I ended up liking this better than my original idea. (Below)
Continuing to expand upon our previous Lego project, we repurposed our secret island. This project is all about equality… For monsters. After all, monsters are people too! -errr were people that is.
My daughter decided that the monsters needed a place to relax and unwind. A place to escape the pressures of the day to day grind. Above all a judgement free environment to be themselves.
As any mysterious monster island getaway should, it contains many secrets. There’s a total of 5 secret entrances hidden throughout the island. If you check out the previous build, you’ll find a few of them. Want to know about the rest? I can’t tell you, it’s a secret, but feel free to guess!
Want to relax and unwind? Why not sit by the waterfall and enjoy the view? Wondering what flounder has to do with monsters? He does work for a company that’s know for killing off parents in most of their movies!

Imagine if the Prius was around back in 1985. As of 4:00 today we officially stepped into the future. Where’s my hover board?
I wanted to have this post published by 4:00 today (the time Marty and Doc entered the future), it’s now 5:56… Maybe I shouldn’t have picked a Prius?

I recently did some window art for the Jimmy Fund Clinic where my daughter is being treated. This was in celebration of Suesstember. I wanted to give something back as a gesture of gratitude for the amazing care that they have provided for my daughter. Everyone there is awesome!
They go out of their way to make the children feel comfortable. The resource room a has plenty of games, crafts, and activities to keep my daughter distracted from the impending doom of injections. Twice a week she endures the pain of double shots in her legs. Astonishingly she does this with a smile and a positive attitude. I watch in awe as she weathers these storms, showing me what true perseverance is all about.
The true test of a person is not how they act when everything is going well, but how they react when their world goes sideways. I can only hope to teach my daughter half of what she has taugh me about life.
If you feel inclined, please consider donating to The Jimmy Fund. They are an amazing organization.
If you are unable to donate, feel free to share this to help spread the word. Thank you!

We all make choices in life. Good or bad they are ours to make and no one can be blamed or credited for the choices but ourselves. We must take accountability for our actions, after all is said and done, you reap what you sow.
Often times people are upset with the repercussions of a given situation. The thing to be aware of is who was responsible for the percussion In the first place. If you’re the one holding the drum stick, you are the one responsible for the beat. It’s not always easy to keep pace.
I’m unfortunately good at learning from hindsight (it’s 20/20 after all), the problem being that I need to remind myself to take a step back to see the bigger picture. I could benefit by shoving rationalization aside, rather than giving him a chance to speak and entertain his thoughts. Ahh well you reap what you sow, right? It is what it is…
The above graphic represents those type of moments. Using rationalization to convince yourself that the decision you’re about to make is as pure as a freshly picked daisy. Meanwhile you neglect to dig deeper and get to the roots of the issue. Further down the road you realize that you my have inadvertently put a noose around your neck. Choices… Please feel free to share you’re thoughts in the comments section below.
