DEE Station.

My husband and I got into the show LOST a bit late, but we quite enjoyed it; other than my wanting to punch Kate in the mouth every other episode and…well,I wasn’t too fond of the ending. But in true LOST spirit, we created our own station for Mo(<<<<click for a video), the “DEE” station, as that is the main unit of Mo’s vocabulary.

To a Mother who really knows her way around..

I had to show the card I made for my husband’s mother for Mother’s Day. Every time we go to visit her in Steve’s hometown in New Jersey, I am always floored by the 347 ways to get from one destination to the other. So whenever we start a journey someplace—be it a diner, store,theater, etc.—there is always the discussion of which way to go between Steve and his mom. I asked Steve to type me out a typical discussion between them and send it to me, and you see it here. 🙂

The Puppatoons Graphics Department.

My dear little husband Steve has worked very hard to help me get my website spruced up in the past couple of weeks.  While I can make “okay” graphics, Steve excels making them, and he has made many of the button and link graphics for this site,such as the nice blue-framed ones to the side, and the big graphic(with photo by Bo Couch) that you see when you type in www.puppatoons.com. He is also responsible for our coloring pages, and this flier for the show this weekend:

He has been a big help in putting together the soundtrack for the show, and the new Facebook Fan Page. He is also my greatest critic and cheerleader. I couldn’t do all that I do without him!

Steve Whitmire Workshop!

This was a workshop given at The Center for Puppetry Arts that we attended on January 9th and 16th. Absolutely no photos were allowed, and Steve was pretty much rushing from lecture to workshop to next workshop and we were informed that there was no time for chatting or autographs,but, for the depth of instruction we recieved, it was hardly a problem.

Here are the combined notes from my husband and me. He drew sketches, too,at my request,much like courtroom artwork.:D
