Merry Mary 2

Well, for the third time Mary has worked for us through the summer and then goes back to her real life. Usually she would head back to school at BYU. Last summer she skipped a semester and headed to Guatemala, where she volunteered at an orphanage for four months. This time she is headed for Buenos Aires, Argentina for eighteen months. She will be serving a mission for her Church; The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon).

She will be missed. Usually it is in mid September that we start looking for her in the studio and she is gone. She has that ability to bring peace and happiness wherever she is. She also makes a great and forgiving target for the red rubber balls I keep in the studio for sneak attacks. Here is a few images from this summer:

This is Mary re-doing the tile floor in our kitchen area of the studio. It was cool when she stuck one of these 18" tiles to the bottom of her foot.

Above is Mary on a search and destroy mission to eradicate another spider ecosystem.

Below is Mary doing two jobs at once, painting a prop sign while babysitting Shelley's (Queen Denizen of the Digital Dungeon) baby.

This next photo was in my blog on the red shoe project. Not only did Mary have one of the best ideas, she become the model for the the Tight Rope Red Shoes.

She will be missed, but we are excited for her as she starts this next chapter of her life. People like Mary are hard to find and they always leave good memories.
