1984, bitches!

Dec 4, 2012

My mother has finally decided it's time I get the rest of my crap from her basement, much to my husband's horror. On the plus side, I discovered my school treasures dating all the way back to kindergarten. My mom likes to blame all the hoarding on me, but there's no way I started keeping those things from way back then on my own - all neatly categorized in order by year. Ahem!

Anyway, I have been laughing my arse off at my seven year old self for the past two days, so I thought you might as well join in on the ridiculousness that is mini me.

Loving the fake tan and leg warmers, Cyndi!


I don't know about this one, but the accuracy is amazing.


This actually explains a lot . . .


I was scrap booking before scrap booking was cool!


Holy fuck, I really do love winning!


And it appears my artistic abilities peaked in 1984
because I'm pretty sure I still draw sunsets like this:


Magritte can stick this in his pipe and smoke it.

    Lmbo I think all of us drew sunsets that way, and like you that is probably how I would draw it now, despite knowing that is not a typical sunset lol.

  1. I especially love your shamrock medal - were you an irish dancer too?

    Ha! Nope. I have no idea why I have a shamrock medal ;p

    There is a haunting melody that run’s through all of your work, that marks it as distinctive.

    Your technique reveals a competence that can only come from talent that has been put through its paces- this work exudes the quality that comes only from the hard work of application and quest.

    Boy George's hat hits us with a shock to the senses and draws us in for a closer look, to be rewarded by the more quiet changes in mood effected by masterly use of soft mark making that lulls us back to a sense of security.

    LOL.

    Thanks for that in-depth critique of my work, and despite your smartassery, you are right about one thing -- I haven't changed much in 27 yrs. Ahem.

    I have stacks and stacks of my daughter's first grade masterpieces, I am debating on which ones to tuck back in the archives to embarrass her with later in life. This helps give me a few ideas!

    YES!! The boys come home with loads of crap but I'm very particular about what I think will be "keepers".
    So far, not much yet. LOL

  1. Holy CRAP. The 80s were awesome...

    Gorgeous! Makes me wish I had my old stuff!

    Being the smart ass kind of Dad I had, he'd always ask me, "Why are there flying M's in the sky?" - I see you have them also. :)

  1. Boy George and Cyndi Lauper are eerily similar in looks...

  1. At the wee age of seven you were turning in drawings of Cyndi Lauper and the Boy that was George. I have to say I'm impressed. Ellen

    Man, if I could go back to 1984. I wonder what my mother has outside of the random photo she mails to me.
