My inner ninja’s kicking butt these days. And, let me tell you, it’s much more exciting to roll with the punches than to constantly question one’s capabilities.

Here’s a little peek at a project my daughter and I have on the go:

This grumpster is my favourite. He’s hard to please, but who can fault him for wanting the job done well?

These beautiful birds will be incorporated into a larger painting we’ve been working on since our season of slow.

First Test by Tamora PierceSpeaking of birds and butt-kicking, I’ve just finished re-reading First Test by Tamora Pierce. It’s the first book in the Protector of the Small series and, by far, one of my favourite YA novels. Ten-year-old Keladry is a young girl who wants to be a knight. She shows strength, determination, leadership, and honour as she fights for justice. She’s a hero worth having and First Test is a book worth reading (and re-reading).

How about you? How’s your inner ninja? What projects are you working on? Who’s your favourite butt-kicker?
