Safari, Beginner, IF

Let's go surfin' now, everybody's learnin' how...

When school lets out in a few weeks and even as the gas prices soar,
I hope the kids still manage to go on beach safaris.

Loading up the friends and boards, cruisin' PCH, summer mischief always beckons.
It's part of the southern California culture, you know?

And then...
Since Blogger locked the doors to the playhouse late last week, my last minute efforts were put on hold. Never mind. And don't think that the irony of posting my beginners, as the topic was ending, wasn't appreciated here!
While crouching among the flowers and pulling weeds, the inspiration for "Beginner" struck me. Just had to wait to post both topics.
Better late than never, I say.


  1. :))))))))))!!!

    And I thought i was the single one who had problems with the blog!!!:)

  2. Surf sea and sun, how fun! Its a bit like that in parts of Australia too. I liked your seed packet too, love the inspiration :-)
    It certainly is nice to have our blogs back isnt it?. :-)

  3. Two at once! What could be better!!!

  4. I'm so glad you posted both Michele...great work. I have been busy planting in the garden today so your beautiful sunflower seeds were very apt.It was very quiet when blogger went down..I really missed my blogging friends. I'm glad everything is back, we could all jump into your safari bus and head to the beach now!
    Have a great week,
    Jane x

  5. Absolutely love your safari! :)

  6. Heisann!

    Ha, ha great for Safari, and lovely for Beginner... Sometimes I must combine the post not caused blogspottruble, but loss of time!
    This week I did everything digital to spare time.
    Have a nice week ;:OD)

  7. That is a fun version of a safari. We should all live in south California ;)
    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  8. Great illustrations!
    Seeds are a wonderful idea for beginners - and what an upbeat safari, beautiful textures :)

  9. This made me smile and I so needed that today. I love the 'outside the box' spin you took on the theme. I totally dig the solid colors and objects against the softer, more abstract background.

  10. Love your surfin' dudes! Your sunflower packet is lovely, too!

  11. Beautifully done! This is a really nice illustration!
    Surfs up!

  12. I love the seeds for beginner. Really sweet. You should do a series of different seed packets, that would be gorgeous....

  13. The many surf schools are at every break these days - A great expressive action image.

  14. he he he he he he he! I love it! This is an awesome illustration and prefect for the word. Thanks so much for you kind and sweet words left on my blog. I so appreciate your friendship and support. It means the world.

  15. Now I'm singing Beach Boys. I hope this doesn't last all day :) Love your surfin' safari and seed package. What a happy post!

  16. So clever! As soon as school's out we're headed to the beach! Thanks for reminding me (as if I forgot!) :)
