K.Lo has always been a little bit of an artist, and it’s fun to watch her work. For one, she is quiet. Intent. Whether it’s coloring, painting, drawing, cutting and/or taping, she is involved when in that space. And lately, her art is coming together. You can really tell what stuff is, all of a sudden.

K.Lo and the MagnaDoodle. The shots are basically the same, I realize, but could you choose one employee expression over the other? I could not. I love the little creature she drew.

She draws lots and lots of smiley faces, but this one was noteworthy for the rectangle eyes. Also, she is into details such as eyebrows and (in other pictures) five fingers on a hand.


And then, the multimedia project. A house! Note the trimmed grass, colored green, the door, the stickers holding it all together. (The Manager may have finally tired of a certain employee using yards and yards of Scotch tape at a time. She was told to make do with what was in front of her, and she did!) I helped with cutting the roof per the employee’s direction, but that’s it.


Also, I don’t have a picture, but today she made “wind chimes” with scissors and black paper. It was particularly thoughtful, as our office has a set hanging out front that is broken. And of the ginormous stack of paper she cut throughout the work day, she worried it would get lost in the shuffle at cleanup time. “But I made wind chimes for Mommy!” Aw. They are hanging on the kitchen window. With Scotch tape.

    Adorable. And sweet! Ben is in that stage where a bunch of straight or curved-ish lines back and forth across a page are either the letters in the word "Mommy" or a tree and a car and a dog barking at the bird where the sun is shining in my eyes with sunglasses on. Which I also find adorable... :) but I look forward to actually recognizing his efforts!

    "tell me about your painting " keeps you from guessing wrong.
