I remember the first time I met Margot. She was about two years old. She walked into a bustling library story hour wearing this giant purple fur coat.
At age two she was rocking a giant purple fur, striped tights, some sort of crazy boots, an extra sweater, a feather in her hair, mardi-gras beads, you name it. I simply found this kid fascinating. Of course she had me at striped tights and purple fur, but as I have watched her grow over the years I’ve also enjoyed watching her style evolve.
Now I probably cannot go any further without mentioning her bigger sister. She is queen of cool. I’d imagine like many second-borns, Margot must struggle to fill her sister’s shoes. But I don’t think she does, she is very distinct and very unique. What separates the two is Margot is a little more quiet. As I watch her I’m always wondering what she’s thinking. What I do know, is that Margot beats to her own drum and I SO DIG THAT!
Today’s collage made with tons of tiny cut up painted acrylic papers is a celebration of kid style. Kids are so free. So funky. I find them way more entertaining than TV!
I love that just like snowflakes, each one of our kids is so very different, one of a kind, unique.

Why does my cat sit on every piece of my art? Why? Is it her stamp of approval?
