One of my favorite things in the world to do for fun is watch people create art--all sorts of art. Even better than that, is to learn about artists that have paved the way for the rest of us.

Summer in February (the book, but the movie would be fabulous)

Oh, it's going to be a wonderful Christmas.

About three weeks (most of it during Spring break and then a couple of weekends following), half of a pinkie nail, and five hundred dollars later, my coop was finished and the chickens seemed to have made th…
