I met Erin at a park district class last winter. Through different play groups and moms night out we have become friends. Over this time I have learned about her perspective on what all cultures use to celebrate an event: Cake or a desert of some sort. I can not do here theory justice so you have to read her description below. Erin uses this theory to create art from celebratory confectionery items that she makes herself. In most of her pieces she smashes cupcakes or cakes to inspire the piece.
She has a piece called ‘Serenity Now’ which is a zen garden made of sprinkles! This was a big hit with D and Erin’s son. They were playing with it the whole time. Lots of sprinkles on the floor.Cupcake smash!
This piece stole the show. It’s huge! It exhibits her signature art design with sprinkles, gold leaf, frosting and pattern work.
When I came home that night I told D I had sprinkles in my shoes. He helped shake them out.
Do something awesome this Friday night and go see her show!

Erin was featured in the Chicago Tribune.
We switched up our play date switch this week because he kids are on school break and our husbands had more flexibly schedules. So on Thursday I had both kids and we decided to go to the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum because its free for Illinois residents on Thursday. Woo Hoo!
The Nature Museum has this fun area called Judy Istock Butterfly Haven where butterflies can land on you.
These two really love each other. I promise I didn’t pose this one. D kind of looks like Kevin McCallister in this outfit.
