The Truth About Prince Charming

Once upon a time, I truly believed I had found my prince charming, only to find out later that he was just wearing a disguise. As I was pondering how hard it is for me to understand men, this cartoon idea came to mind.

Flexing My Right Brain

Growing up I spent a lot of time drawing and painting. I dreamed of being a cartoonist one day. However, I was hired right out of art school to do web design and I’ve been on the computer ever since (over 20 years now). And while I enjoy that type of work too, I have really missed the feeling of a pencil in my fingers and the ability to let my mind wander on creating something whimsical. So, I got out some paper last night and decided to get my right brain in gear again.

First, I searched for a photo I could use for inspiration and I found this:

oak tree

As soon as I saw this tree I wanted to climb it…or even LIVE in it. Its long, flowing branches look just like strong arms welcoming me in for a big hug. I LOVE it. So, I set out to draw this tree and this is what happened:

Treehouse

I wouldn’t call it photorealistic (ha!) but it was still fun. I need to invest in some nicer markers and paper now, then hopefully you’ll start to see some more drawings from me.

A Song About Greed

What happens if we allow greed to destroy our lives? Here’s a silly song I wrote since I’m a bit of a nerd when it comes to budgeting.  I found a lot of freedom once I started handling my money God’s way.

Matthew 6:19-21 – “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

1 Timothy 6:10 – For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

Beware The Glutton

Here’s a silly song I wrote to warn about what can happen if we allow our love for food to take over our lives.

Listen here.

Beware the Glutton

pigout

He’s fat and he’s lazy
He’s really kinda crazy
His mouth is bigger than his head
He can’t stop eat’n
And his body takes a beat’n
If he doesn’t stop he’s gonna be dead
His mouth is drooly
His face is kinda gruelly
He can’t keep his appetite cool
It’s food he’s always grabbin’
And his lips are always flappin’
Everybody thinks of him as a fool

Chorus
And the children sing . . .
Don’t be a Glutton!
Moderate, don’t stuff your face
Don’t be a Glutton!
Slow it down and set the pace
Don’t be a Glutton!
There’s more to life than just the taste
Don’t be a Glutton!

GluttonrunHe just can’t stop
He eats until he pops
And he leaves a mighty mess on the floor
Little kiddies get scared
When they stop and stare
He could eat the whole grocery store
So hear me warning you
This tale is tried and true
These mouthy monsters really exist
So just don’t become one
Or your peeps will call you two ton
I really hope you’re getting the gist
