Tribal Holiday

My super-duper creative mother brought a bucket o' crafty bits to the post-Thanksgiving Day dinner table when we were all in Chicago visiting my family. Here's what we came up with...

So when Mostly Naked saw my masterpiece (front row, 3rd from right), he thought that was our only Christmas decoration in the house. He also thought I made it in grade school. Proof that I'm an ARTEEST with the big vocabulary, not so much the mixed media. Keep in mind, we haven't seen MN actually make anything...except a mess of his motorcycle.

Winter at the EC Tribe's house this year doesn't involve housing any less motorcycles in the living room. Just smaller ones. The one in the lights is my gift to me.

My most excellent gift to the boys...honestly I don't even care if they don't like them (though I think they did)...I just think these posters are the coolest thing. I could stare at them for hours. More, though, at my own poster, hanging up in our "Command Center." me. me. me.

Happy holidays!


  1. I read your moms blog when she posted that last month. And, I have that magazine where the idea came. Your snow tiki is awesome. Very unique.

    You ride the little bike? Why? I mean, not that I don't like it. I think it looks great covered in Christmas lights but you're not short. That can't be comfortable, can it?

  2. As purchased, no. It isn't all that easy to's Little Men O'Pry sized. But with stiffer springs and bigger handlebars, it will be lots o' fun. Do some skitchin' in the dirt, ride it at the indoor go-kart track in the Twin Cities and since I'm planning to do a few track days this year and have a friend or two in the racing circuit up at Brainerd, it'll make for a good pit bike.

  3. So where is the pic of the poster of you, you, you in the command center? I wanna see it!

  4. Maybe you can score a red fez and ride it along with the other Shriners in a local parade?
