WIP Wednesday: Here There Be Children

My children. Today's WIP?

T-shirts with freezer paper stencils. Owen has chosen an ankylosaurus for his design. Max picked a raptor (the dinosaur variety).

So...busy with the boys.

I do have three short stories in the works:

"Lucky Numbers" (involving some very unlucky events, including a grave robbing)

"Pieces of Lisa" (in which several friends lose various body parts)


"One More Masterpiece, Old Man" (featuring a bleeding statue)

And I finished At the End of Church Street by Gregory L. Hall (of The Funky Werepig). Fun book. Badass vampires (which is a welcome change from the blah sparkly spin-offs). I'll have a "recommendation" up at Skull Salad by the end of the week.

The boys are now cue for an exit...

Lol... good luck with your kids Aaron! I'll be right with you next week. At least you have some good things to keep them busy for now :D

Great work on the three stories! Can't wait to see where these get placed as well!

Enjoy your day!

I spent yesterday with my neice and nephew, I envy you getting to spend time with the little ones every day.

Sounds like fun. good luck with the stories. I would love to see the inner workings of your brain- I think I have the right saw for looking if you want to come over. :)

"Dad, who do you think would win between an ankylosaurus and a raptor?" I bet you're sick of answering that question, yes? :)

Danielle Birch said...

All three stories sound very interesting - especially the loss of body parts.

Oh, cool, dinosaur T-shirts! You've made me remember the iron-on T-shirts I used to ask my mom to make me, and the smell of melting wax while she worked on getting the transfer on.

The short stories sound great too!

Andrea Allison said...

Sounds like you had fun. Good luck with the stories.

Nice, I loved those kinds of summer projects with my parents when I was a kid! (My poor, poor parents...)

Bleeding statue. Oh god. An artist story?! Eeeeee!!!

I'll try to post a picture of the finished products. Needless to say, both little goobers were thrilled.

And yes, Michael. So tired of all the dino-related speculation. (You should hear the arguments about the color of a T-rex).
