Painting the Roses Red, We're Painting the Roses Red . . .

I've been at the kids' school every afternoon this week working on painting the sets for Alice in Wonderland which is next Friday. It has been fun! I volunteered to do it, but when they called me about it I had this feeling of dread that I just couldn't shake. I always feel that when I commit to doing something BIG and question whether I'll actually be able to pull it off. It's silly, really. The boys and I have been painting during rehearsals and I LOVE seeing Sydney in action. It is glorious. And having my boys working by my side . . . SO FUN! I'll post a picture tonight after I've finished (hopefully . . . ) the backdrop. It's a perspective view of Wonderland with the White Rabbit's house in front. A little pathway leads to the Mad Hatter's tea party and then follows on to the Queen of Hearts' castle way back in the distance. I hope it turns out as cute as I'm imagining it. And, while it pains me to put this much work into something that will be thrown away in a week, there is nothing I wouldn't do for my little Alice.

  1. I have no doubt that it will be the cutest backdrop EVER. You always do everything so well, and you have so much talent for this kind of thing. Hopefully you can get it done the way you want to. I am so excited to hear how the whole play turns out!
