I received an email inquiry this morning with a link to this post. The inquirer asked: "Hello, I have run across this sculpture and not 100 percent if it is made by you the originator Julie Elkins
can you confirm it?" Well the answer is absolutely NOT!...but my surrealist tendancies are making me second guess that absolute...my name IS carved on the butt. Thanks internet. Please exit through the WORM HOLE to your right.

We formed a mural committee and voted on a design, collaborated on the layout, sorted tile into appropriate colors, adhered tile pieces, and finally grouted and cleaned the surface of the mosaic. The students witnessed their ideas “come to life” through hard work, self-discovery, cooperation and persistence. I was confident that we had created something great when one of the students ran off the bus, seeing the completed mural for the first time he dropped down to his knees and screamed Dr. Frankenstein style: “Finally!!!! My idea come to Life!!!!!!”

Worked with the kids at Boys and Girls Club Key West this past month on a float for the holiday parade. The theme for our float was "Dream Big". We paper mached an enormous boy and girl, made clouds, rainbows, flying dragons and topped the whole thing off with glittery letters and lights. All our materials were salvaged from the local bike shop or donated. The kids had a blast and will be proud to learn that we won "Best Float" out of 70 floats in the non-profit category!

I had fun reinventing this retired paddle from previous Dragon Boat Races. The paddle is up for raffle at this years' race and the proceeds will go to the Cancer Foundation of the Florida Keys. The festival is being held at Sombrero Beach, Marathon, FL. May 12, 2012.
