Fat Book Entry #7: Snarky Moms

Here’s my latest entry for my mammoth Fat Book swap. I have to admit I really struggled with this one, though as we all know, procrastination is my strong suit. :-) The topic for this entry was supposed to be “Snarky Moms”. I just don’t like the word “snarky”. Never have. Here’s Google Answer’s take on the word. So anywho, since I don’t like the word to begin with, I was really struggling with how to turn it into a piece of art. I’m not a big fan of using vintage art in my mixed media work, but when I saw this old ad, I could just hear three catty, or “snarky”, women sitting around the table talking about someone. So there you have it: not only Snarky Moms, but PTA Snarky Moms. Okay, I admit, yes, I just joined the PTA at my girls' school. And I think I should wear a slinky purple dress to the first meeting I know, just to get ‘em talking! What do you think?

Hahahaha! I commend you for joining the PTA. As a past president of that organization, I think that the slinky purple dress would be perfect! Don't forget to take and then post a picture along with the girlies' and DH's reaction to that one!

Just kidding of course - good "snarky Moms" piece.

I hope we meet in real life some day because I hope some of your imagination will rub off on me. Tee Hee!
LOVE what you did with the topic.
Did you ever see Julia Robert's movie, "Something to Talk About"?
There's a catty scene that reminds me of this piece you created.
