Weekly Pet Challenge – Pee speeks Peece!


Sydnee Pee for Peace!



Pee 4 Peece


Pee has many faces – wears many hats – is a very busy young lady.  Sometimes, however, she feels the ‘need to speek’ her mind.  In knowing that she has gained some prominence in the super model world, Sydnee Pee told me that she wants to put her fame to good use – for the betterment of all mankind and animal kind.

So, with Pee’s ‘need to speek’ and wanting to contribute in her own special way to Artists4Peace, Pee dove into her inner flower child, found my lucky peace charm, put it on her head, took a picture, sent it to MichelleMarie for artistic interpretation, then gave it to her manager (aka yours truly Sydnee Pee’s post host) to post!

I say – let’s join Pee – shall we?

my 2 P’s

Today I have decided to post a project that is near and dear to my heart. Yes, it involves my two children – Peyton and Sydnee Pee.

I have always loved my children’s art work – I have posted many of Peyton’s projects – even dedicated a post to three of my favorites, two of which can be recognized as my gravatars –

Unfortunately, Peyton is not producing much art these days. His curriculum in school is all academic based, so art is not a consideration for at least another year, or so……. BUT, I came up with a plan. Why not commission a piece of art? I may not be a Rockefeller or a Carnegie, but I am a mom and I love art and he is my favorite artiste, other than his big bro Jordan.

Peyton and I have discussed for quite sometime that we need a portrait of his sister to hang on the wall. Sydnee is very beautiful – her mix of German Shepard and Akita has gifted her an unusual mix of colors – oranges, tans, browns, ivories, a splotch of black and pink here and there. She has orange eyelashes, brown eyes, which depending on the natural light, look dark brown or light amber. She has unusually large ears, three paws and an upturned tail.

There is one photo in particular, which we agree to be the perfect likeness – eyes open, upright ears, a big smile – the kind of photo you always try to capture but somehow ‘just miss’. Thanks to my I-phone I got it snapped! Here it is –

So without further adieu, I present to you Peyton’s talent from start to finish –

As one can see, Peyton loves color. He has always had a way of seeing beauty and bright color in just about everything, which is a trait I absolutely adore and admire (and one that brightens his mom’s life).

I am currently in the hunt for the perfect frame and Peyton is trying to decide on his next project. (Chances are it will be Pee, again) By the way, in case you were wondering what sort of payment was agreed upon for Peyton’s commission – all I can say is we are still deciding upon the terms, though I do believe there was “some mention” of international exposure:)

colors to brighten a gray day

it is a gray day.  a very gray day.  my insides, my outsides  – all gray.  what better way to beat a bad case of the grays than with color.  what better way to get some color than to look at a pretty painting –

Peyton's pretty flowers.
