Agamemnon and the Limited Edition Monsters.

I was asking this question myself... It's been busy around the good old KBG household, as it always is this time of year. Something about the spring always throws the blog (and monster production) on the back burner. There's always so much to do outside with the gardens and planting and whatnot. You can keep up with the garden adventures, including the new saga of Operation Botanical Fortress, on my Garden Fun Sunday posts. There will be many more posts coming as the season progresses... also some winter gardening to plan for this year!

That all being said, I very recently started this limited edition set of monsters... there will only be  30 made with the hearts. They are called Remember to Love Monsters (If you click on the pictures, it'll take you to where you can purchase one.).  I was inspired by the outright hatred and anger that I have been observing all around me. The universe seems very heavy to the point where it seems like people can't cope. These monsters are a gentle reminder to love. Love everyday with all of your heart. Look at your life and love everything you can about it. It could all be gone tomorrow.

Speaking of love... look what we brought home. His name is Agamemnon (Aggie for short) and he is awesome. I'm hoping that in a few years his name will be an opening for my kids to become interested in the great stories of Greek Mythology starting with The Iliad. (Yes, I'm aware my inner dork is peeking out..) He is also filling our already busy days, as we adjust to life with a puppy. We've never had a dog before, and there is oh so much to learn. There are more pictures here on my Flickr set.
