Veggie Tales & Big Idea Productions

I always wondered what ever happened to Big Idea Productions and the very talented and creative folks there. In our house and my sister and her husband's, Veggie Tales were very popular! Our fun was enahanced by the fact that my brother-in-law worked for the company that produced licensed Veggie Tales clothing at the time. We still even have a few prototype shirts around that never made it to market.

I finally got to read about what happened with Big Idea at Phil Vischer's new site, Jellyfish.

I look forward to the creative and fun things that will come from Jellyfish!


Is It A Breadstick?

Last year we were studying Sculpture and Pottery. On our way to the local art museum, a moment of spontaneity hit – the Art on the Streets program exhibits various sculptures throughout our downtown area. Instead of the museum, we opted to do a “Sculpture Walk.” The assignment? My son, with notebook in hand, would write the title, the artist’s name, what material he thought was used for each piece, as well as something of interest to him. We photographed each sculpture, eventually including my son in the pictures.

As we reached the end of our walk, we came upon this particular piece from the backside and my son thought it looked like a breadstick, so he promptly “took a bite!” We had no idea what it was supposed to be until we got around to the front.

It’s called “Nun More Happy.” (This also provided an opportunity to discuss puns.)

Once the film was developed, my son created a small scrapbook. Each layout included one or more photos along with the information he wrote during our walk.

Our Sculpture Walk turned out to be loads of fun and it gave him (and me) a new appreciation for sculpture. Since they rotate the Art on the Streets, we may have to do Sculpture Walk II this year!

I Finally Did It!

Well, I finally did it - I am now officially a blogger! I've pondered about a blog name for the longest time (probably the main reason I haven't done this sooner) and POOF! this one comes out of thin air. It's not even close to my other choices, but it very appropriately describes my life. I don't know if I ever complete anything without venturing down at least one BUNNY TRAIL.

If anyone should care to read this blog (besides me), you'll find that I'm all over the place - probably on a bunny trail that led off another bunny trail off another bunny trail, etc. Who knows how I got where I am? Fortunately, God has the master plan to ALL my bunny trails and He never loses track of me. For that, I am very grateful. Not only that, but He also shows up on my bunny trails quite regularly. Being the awesome and amazing God that He is, He brings along whatever I may need for the journey at that particular moment.

I look forward to coming back to my entries and seeing the great things the Lord has done along the bunny trails.
