I probably should have clarified ... the children don't live in my house. They were on loan from my friend Terriann and were basically serving as my thinly veiled excuse for painting a children's book cover on my office wall: "Hey, Terriann! Why don't you send the kids over to paint a mural and make cookies? It'll be great! They can paint all over my wall!"

Just tryin' to entertain the children. Eeeeeyyyyeah. Mm-hm. Yeah ... yeah ... that's it ... that's the ticket. And all those sock monkeys I keep making? For my nephew. Of course. Yeah. Wink

A colleague of mine sent a link that Wild Things fans will love. This is one of the coolest things I've ever seen:

That's wonderful. And how neat that you designed it so the kids could  work on it too.  Smiley

This is incredible! I've just been trying to convince my sister to put a Wild Things mural in her daughter's room. I wish this was on my wall when I was a little kid...and by "when I was a little kid" I mean now. Beautiful job!

Ah!  This is definitely one of my all-time favorite projects I've ever seen!  I loooove "Where the Wild Things Are"!!!  You've done an amazing job as well.
