Scarecrow Festival

Thank you to everyone who came out and voted for us at the Scarecrow Festival this year! Such a fun art festival Saint Charles hosts, and we absolutely love participating in it!


The competition was steep, as it should be. Congratulations to all the winners!

Fluttershy and Discord from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

This year we let our six-year-old daughter pick, so we went with Fluttershy and Discord from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. But it works! Because good writing takes a little bit of quiet and a little bit of chaos. Fluttershy is the calm, quiet, Snow White pony of the "Mane Six," and in later episodes, she befriends Discord––a.k.a. the Spirit of Disharmony, the incarnation of chaos––the former antagonist brought to goodness through the magic of friendship.


They disintegrated a little in the rain, but like Burning Man, it's fun to release your art to the moment. Privately, I began referring to the festival as Drowning Woman, but I digress.


We've improved our papier-mâché skills since last year, but I'm still proud of our Merlin.


Until next year!
