I'm not an artist, but I play at being one in my basement, along with YoungerGreenKid. (PIC HEAVY)

The vest my Mom made for Dad for Halloween one year. We are going to try and draw some of those images on the wall, like the Peace Flag.

Looks like a fun basement to hang out in.

8. Thanks! Someone else suggested it, and we picked up some sidewalk chalk the next week. We

desperately want more colors than the standard rainbow though.

Kidlet is 12 now. Don't know how he got so big so fast! So it's really nice to have something we can do together. (By together I mean we print out pics and go over them, and then take off to different walls and tag them. Still together enough for me. )

(I couldn't help myself with "Play All the Games!" It is a game-room or sorts, after all. )

9. That Lambda thingy is one of the kidlet's. Has to do with a video game, I think. Definitely get

get plain old chalk. It washes off with water. (I debated using real artist's Craypas, but oil-based stuff might be permanent.)

We've done Pokemon, video game critters, "My Little Pony" cutie marks, internet memes, and Warrior cat clan markings. When we get some more colors I want to try making some sort of "real" graffiti tags like I see on the trains at the paper mill.

5. My dear GreenPartyVoter!

You are too an artist! Hell, woman, those are wonderful pics!

I love your chalk art on the walls. They show a lot of creativity!

Keep on keepin' on!

10. Thanks, Peggy! I think I need to alert the husband that he needs to give up his

swath of wall where he projects his 8mm movies. We need more space!

Also, I think it is time to break out the step ladder and a short stool. Still lots of real estate up high and down low.

Peace!

11. I cherish that vest, especially since my folks are gone now. And that bacon thing, I laugh

every time I look at it. Never gets old for me.

7. Fantastic.

You got two of my faves in there: "clean all the things" and "push button receive bacon."

12. Yeah, I love those too! I do like some other memes, but I felt they were out of

my league drawing-wise.

We do want to put up the long-neck guy. We just need to find something for him to be shocked at. Also gonna add an iPhone whale. That should be easy enough!

18. Thank you. You should have seen me yelling while

trying to make the Guy Fawkes image, though. "Quick, I need to erase again!" and also, "Crap, that's not right!"
