Not-so-easy unicorn

You may remember the gifted tiger "painting" I received over the holidays. The joke has carried on that only a paint-by-numbers unicorn could possibly surpass the awesomeness of El Tigre.

So I bought one with great enthusiasm...


...and then cursed the blatant mislabeling of "quick and easy" when the directions looked like this:


And this:


I have a better chance of finding an actual unicorn and riding it into the sunset than finding time to paint this so-called "easy" project.

I would love this un-painted unicorn framed and in my cube at work.

Yea... we got one like that for my 7 year old son. Gave it to him on Christmas Eve. I thought it would be a cool project. He thought it looked way too hard and so it sits with your unicorn.

I just stumbled upon your blog this afternoon and I'm loving it so far. Your matter-of-fact approach to motherhood (and fear of creepy dolls) totally cracks me up. You'd fit in fabulously in my family. I can't wait to share your site with my readers...and my sisters.
