Shadow Play and Matryoshka Mayhem

I spent quite a bit of time working on my Matryoshka dolls today but had to go outside as it was absolutely gorgeous! Aren and I went for a walk around the neighbourhood and had some fun taking shadow pictures. Actually I believe that he didn't want to have his picture taken until we decided to take pictures of our shadows. Then he took about twenty or so. Hilarious. On the way home we took a detour and stopped at this local coffee joint Bean Counters. It is a really cute little place and they have delicious smoothies. Mine was Wildberry with Cream and Aren had Mango. Yummy!

A couple pictures of my outfit since it is impossible to see what I wearing in my shadow.
I haven't worn this skirt in a while since it had a small tear and was a bit too big in the waist. Finally this morning I took a few minutes and repaired it so it would be good to go. I'm happy I did since it is such a nice skirt to wear in the summer.

Aren not wanting his picture taken.

And finally a sneak peak at some of the Matryoshka dolls I have been working on! That is the new Olfa cutting mat that Aren bought me as an early birthday gift underneath. He also bought me an Olfa ruler today which was 50% off! I am extremely excited about using these two items as I have been wanting (and needing) them for quite some time now.
Stay tuned for more Matryoshka Madness.
Also - please help! I don't know what to get my Dad for Father's Day....

Lydia said...

He will be home but Mum already knows that Aren and I are coming down. You guys could still surprise them !

Sorry - surprise ruined! Back to the shadow pictures. They are very 'kroakie' like, no? (Probably didn't spell it right, but you know what I mean...) Because of the elongated legs ... :)
