Spy Paper Dolls

















So lately, we have been ninja enthusiasts, ninjaphiles? And in our very academic research on Wikipedia we learned that there were women ninjas or kunoichi. One woman in particular was very cunning, Lady Chiyome, had a school which taught the arts of the geisha but which was actually a front for teaching the arts of the Ninja. (cue gong sound effect)

Loved Paper dolls as a kid. I had a set which included Princess Di and baby William. The rest of the royal gang were included, but I never cut them out. Sorry, your grace.

Earthquake

















We are safe and well here in Japan. There has been some worry expressed on our behalf for our safety- for which I am grateful.
It is an unbelievable disaster. Every news report brings further knowledge of destruction. I couldn't work at all today. I tried to draw something that would make me feel better. Mostly, we feel so helpless. The earthquake happened just as kids were getting out of school. I am grateful that I have mine safe and sound. I wish that everyone did.
