Flower Girls Project: No. 11?


I cannot remember what the new girl's hair looks like! And she keeps eluding me at school. Grumble grumble. This was Ces's suggestion for a solution. HA! Thanks, Ces!


UPDATE:

Emma came home from school and saw this on my computer. The conversation that ensued was so hysterical, I couldn't resist sharing it with you:

"Is that me? Is that me?"
"No."
"I want that to be me."
"Why, you want to be dead?"
*gasp* "WHAT?! She's dead?"
"Yeah, what did you think?"
"I thought she was just looking in there."
"It's a Venus Fly Trap."
"I thought it was a taco plant! And she's looking for cheese! No, no, no, I don't want to be her!"

TattingChic said...

ROFLOL! You gals are just to funny! I know you're not serious because this is not the finished piece...that poor girl would be scarred for life if you did that! She would have nightmares about being caught in venus fly traps the rest of her life...oh, poor girl whose hair you cannot remember! LOL!

I like the idea of a hoodie, tho! LOL! Oh, it could be raining flowers or flower petals so she has to wear a hoodie! LOL!

Can't wait to see what you really do! :)

Renee said...

Love it.

Why doesn't Ces want you to show the little girl's neck. Could it be that it would have puncture marks in it.

Actually that drawing is so fucking funny. har har har.

I was just picturing the teacher seeing all the pictures and ooohhh and awwwing an then what the fuck....

Love it. xoxo

So I think she is a vampyre or you now leading towards a robot? I think she has too much personality to be a robot.

Dusik said...

LOL LOL!!!! :D

and which flower is that? ;)

Renee said...

Again too funny.

Good night sweet friend. Hospital tomorrow for about three hours for some treatment on my bones.

So goodnight and God bless you.

Love Renee xoxoo

Kaili (Billy and Button) said...

Bahaha, thats so funny. Good ol' Ces! She knows what to do!

The Gypsy said...

There's a solution to everything

Ces said...

What the!!!

The venus fly trap ate my comment!

Renee is so stuck on the vampyre conspiracy theory.

WHAHAHAHA! Now you are giving me a reputation. I am such an angel and you and Renee are creating alternate reputations for me!

You are sooo funny, yes YOU!

Ces said...

Girl, you slay me.

You are soo funny.

Ces said...

I want this one. This will be my flower girl.

esque said...

Lolly! That is hilarious! You guys made me choke on my drinking water!

Poor thing, she looks like she's given up trying to fight against the venus fly trap!

Valerie said...

Loni Edwards said...

Haha! Thanks Bella! I needed that giggle! Love the solution! :)

Ces said...

BWAHAHAHAHHAHA!

A TACO FLOWER! LONG LIVE EMMA!!!

I don't know if I can go back to sleep now.


HOLY CRAP! Girl, I LOOOVE YOU!

Bella Sinclair said...

Tattingchic, that is her new name now. Girl-whose-hair-I-cannot-remember.

HA! Renee! I can actually see the teacher shouting, "WTF!" Wouldn't that be something! Hope your treatments are uneventful and healing tomorrow. Love.

Hehehe, Dusik. I think your sexy flower fairy was mad at me when she came by.

Yes, Kaili, Ces always knows what to do. She is wise.

Hello, Gypsy! I completely agree!

Hahaha, esque! Here's a napkin for you.

Oh, Valerie, there's an idea. But I'd need it over her whole head. Or at least her hair.

Loni, :D !

Ces, just call me Taco Bella.

Ces said...

TACO BELLA!

Oh shit! My circadian rhthm is ruined!

HAHAHAHA!

Caroline said...

Shouldn't really laugh....poor little girl,but, OK, LOL, what a wicked sense of humour you have!!

deepazartz said...

Hehehe...thts so sweet...Is Emma your daughter? Nice conver:)

Great work as ever!! But too sad to see that:(

Silke said...

I just read this to my husband and we were both laughing out loud. Too funny! :) Silke

A Cuban In London said...

Loved the conversation. You got to love kids' reaction to death sometimes. My daughter's is quite morbid even though she is only eight. Many thanks for the marvellous illustration.

Greetings from London.

Shugar said...

Ahahahha.... Bella you are hilarious!! you just made me laugh out loud!

Bella Sinclair said...

Yes, Ces, and I'm extra spicyyyyy!

Caroline, you sadist, you!

Deepazartz, Emma is my younger daughter. Umm, this little girl is just..uh...taking a rest. Yeah, that's it. She's taking a rest.

Hey, Silke! My kids make me laugh all the time. :D

Hey, Cuban. Morbid at 8? Do you think she'll be a goth teen?

Hi there, Shugar! I heard you laughing from all the way over here. :)

Carol Lawecki said...

OMG!! I laughed so hard when I saw this. LOL! This is too funny! And your conversation with Emma was precious, Taco Flower indeed. But doesn't everyone want a Venus Fly Trap? I had one when I was little and thought it was an interactive plant. hehehehe. I actually have a page from a magazine right now, an advertisement for a Venus Fly Trap. I thought I'd get it for my son, he saw one somewhere and thought it would be cool to have.

Thanks for the laugh today! Can't wait to see the real picture for this little girl.

Have a great day!!

HanamiGallery said...

hahahaha pretty funny dialog. i guess she could be wearing a suit of armor cap that is protecting her for dying! hahahah

deepazartz said...

Bella, 'Call' me Deepa, thts my name:)

linda cardina said...

hey chimi chaunga..oh i mean taco bella! emma is the best!!!

Amy C said...

that is the cutest and funniest conversation - a taco plant - I love it - love this illo too of course!

messyfish said...

ha ha ha ha ha ha! I think this should be the new girl too! Guess you can tell I was a bully at school. Guess ces was too (or still is??) How funny is the taco and cheese comment? Kids are hilarious (and annoying)

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

HAHA HA HA HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! ...... he he he he he....he he he he hehe he he... ehh he he he he! OMG !!! he he he he!!!! A taco plant!!!! he he he he! I'm done!!!!! Oh I have tears coming down my face right now!!! Bella, I actually have to come back later... he he hee. I can't stop laughing right now! I'm totally serious. I have to compose myself so I can respond.

Ces said...

NO, I was not a bully by any measure Messyfish. In fact, someone tried to bully me. I fought the bullies for my friends. It's a joke and I suppose the new girl will not really see that. Heavens, we don't want any little girl getting eaten by a flower. It's a J-O-K-E! Geesh!

laughingwolf said...

way to go, ces, scaring the crap outta wee ones! :P lol

super story, bella ;)

Dusik said...

haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!
taco flower!!!! haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa


omg, this is surely hysterical!!!!

(how much cheese do they put on tacos in Japan??? gaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!)

kj said...

ah bella, please forgive me if necessary but i can't resist:

(oh god....)

:)

Carli said...

voz said...

I also want to be looking for cheese in the taco plant.

Draffin Bears said...

How lovely, that is so funny heheh!
Love the thought of the taco flower - your daughter is sweet.

Hugs
Carolyn

Peter Breese said...

Yes!!!!!! I got here before 50!!!! Wooooohoooo :) Only kidding... alright, I'll calm down now. I can't help but feel a bit sad for the little martian girl, she's always so happy and care free. What did she do to you to deserve such a terrible end? At least it was all part of the natural cycle. Send her to me and I'll see if I can't revive her :).

caren said...

I like that she was looking for cheese in the taco plant!

Bella Sinclair said...

Hi, Carol! My daughter got a venus fly trap last summer. It was truly fascinating! Though it only lasted a few weeks, because we didn't know how to take care of it. Hope your son enjoys it. :)

HanamiGallery, good idea! I'll have to tell my daughters, because right now they think I'm mean and evil.

Deepa! Deepa, Deepa, Deepa. :)

Linda, I love chimichangas! I've never tried their chalupas, have you?

Ha, Amy. I could use a good taco plant. Yum.

Messyfish, you were a bully? Naaaah!

Oh my GOODNESS, Miss V! Contain yourself! :D

Laughingwolf, hello! Well, I guess being a wolf, you would know about scaring the crap outta kids, hmmm?

Dusik, there are no Taco Bells out here!!! And I think 'taco' means octopus in Japanese. You want cheese on that?

Bwahaha, KJ! What? You see a leeetle donkey?

Heeheee, Carli!
Haahaha, Becky!
Hoohooo, Francisco!

Oh, Voz. You should send one of your gremlins in there for you.

Hi, Carolyn. Boy, was Emma upset! "Why would you draw that?! Why?!"

Peter, you just squeeked in! Oooh, can you revive her? You think? Or will you just flatten her and turn her into a silhouette for one of your fantastic art pieces?

Caren, sadly, I don't think she found any. :o

Valerie Lorimer said...

This is absolutely hysterical! And wonderful. And thanks for sharing the conversation with Emma. Too funny.

thedoodlegirl said...

LOVE it!! It makes me laugh so hard!

Renee said...

Bella you have the sweetest little girls.

I love Emma and I hope you haven't given her nightmares.

Did your heart melt while your head was laughing itself off your shoulders?

Love Renee xoxo

BT said...

Oh how wonderful, what a star!! I think she's excellent, even though she's dead! All limp and hanging there. Sooo funny.

Dusik said...

no taco bell??? how do they live there? :D

(joking.)

when we go to sushi restaurants, they have something called "taco" on the menu usually. octopus probably, yes...

octopus flower? eh? can you?

Ces said...

How do you put those paper designs in the background, like watermarks, they look like elegant floral paper.

Bella Sinclair said...

Hi, Valerie! Glad to make you smile.

Oh, Doodlegirl! Careful now, don't choke.

Renee, I am just falling apart. Bits of me all melted like buttah.

BT, don't use limp and hanging in the same sentence.

Dusik! Are you challenging me???? Want to bring your man-fairy over to help me grow it, hmmmmm?

Yikes, Ces. So easy it's criminal. I just scanned some pretty scrapbooking paper, then pasted into the Illustrator document as a separate layer, and put that layer in the back. A chimp could do it. In fact, a chimp did do it.

Lynda said...

Your art is so adorable :)

Björnik said...

WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I can't stop laughing at this! When I saw this on the dashboard, I was like what the... I kinda feel stupid that I assumed you were really gonna submit this to the teacher.

And another WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA for little Emma, she's so innocent and adorable. Taco and cheese! I'm going to grab myself some water.:)

Ces said...

I want to hire that chimp then, since that chimp is a lot smarter than I am.

Bella Sinclair said...

Thank you, Lynda.

Hehe, Bjornik. That's not a stupid assumption. If it weren't for the threat of an angry parent, I probably would give this to the teacher.

Ces, the chimp charges $15/hr. HiYAH

adrienne trafford said...

oh hahaha! so funny and adorable and creepy all at the same time - i love your flower girls!

Ces said...

Cheap!

Goodnight!

caren said...

Bella ~ Thanks for the comments on my posts! The one about David Spade was hilarious! You had ME rolling on the floor!

Manon Doyle said...

Sooooo funny! Emma cracked me up!

Tessa said...

Bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahaha. Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings...
Wonderful. (I often feel as though my head in lodged in a Venus flytrap - perfectly perfect illustration.)

yoon see said...

Wow! This is really hilarious and clever. I never thought of this could happened Bella.
You are too humble, everytime I come by, there are surprises...
My blog just got the ordinary stuff to show only, yours are superb as always:)

B.Valianti/myth maker said...

A taco plant! I love it. Precious drawing, and Emma sounds extra-specially precious!

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

Honestly Bella, I couldn't say anything on yesterday when I saw the illustration! I was lost for words and couldn't stop laughing. I'm more composed today. I'm fighting back the giggles right now. Emma ROCKS!!!! Between you and Tomas it's just crazy. This was one of the funniest blog entries I have ever seen in my whole 2 years of blogging. It was just HILARIOUS I tell you!!! I didn't know what to do with myself I was laughing so hard and I tell you, everything else feels the same way! THANK YOU BABY GIRL!!!!! I laughed so hard my face was hurting! No two or three ways about it BELLA you are so BOSS!

Eric Barclay said...

As luck would have it, we're having tacos tonight. I will use your illustration as an object lesson for my daughters to stay away from the taco plant.

This is just too funny. You should do your own version of the Gashlycrumb Tinies.

Ces said...

Bella, my darling Mental Ninja! Come and get your badge!

Renee said...

Emma's little story so funny.

Nathan's birthday is tomorrow, so we will have the bash then.

Art therapy, yoga, and stress were only for a short while. They offer it only once. I took them all once so I am done.

The art therapy was amazing. The art I did was total shit, but that wasn't the point.

I am so oral that doing art was a whole different side of me that came to the service that was very emotional.

The first art therapy class I cried like a baby and couldn't even breath.

I wrote about it on my blog on Febryary 20, 2008 and it was called the ant and cheese. check it out if you want.

Anyway with people in my group now and anyone I meet, especially the young women. I always of course tell them they can make it. And I always believe they can.

Love you Bella.

Renee xoxo

Anyway,

Bella Sinclair said...

Adrienne, BLESS you for calling me creepy. I LOVE that! :D

Ces, tweet tweet.

Hi, Manon! Thanks. :)

Hahaha, Tessa! Somehow, I imagine that could also be a very comforting sensation.

Yoon See! Ordinary stuff???? You blow me over with your diversity and talent!

B. Valianti, thank you!

Vanessa, I'm so glad to could make the Queen of Happy laugh. I bet you have such a beautiful, infectious laugh!

Eric, yes, warn those wee girls of yours about the taco plant! And I could never live up to Gorey, the master. Hope you had a nice dinner.

Renee, I'm sure your words bring such hope to those women. And I'm not surprised you have an oral fixation. :)

RockerJewlz said...

How cute...great conversation...although I have to say I had no idea she was dead...I also "thought she was just looking in there"! The taco plant idea, however, is a one of kind!

Renee said...

Bella I loved all the Jeoprady skits. I knew what you were going to say before I read it. The rapists for $600. har har har.

Wasn't he always drunk too. Is that one with Will Ferrel being Alex Tribek?

So funny.

You could still become an art therapist can't you?

You would be so wonderful because you are so full of love and compassion.

I love your mask. I think I should try to get a mask made but I feel like I would paint it black and then smash it up. Because it sometimes would seem like the easiest thing to do.

Yes, art was crazy powerful for me.

Love Renee xoxo

Renee said...

Bella I need some help over at Ces' blog. Can you read my last comment and please stand with me.

har har

xoxoxo

Ces said...

Renee, if your argument is sound I should be convinced, right? why ask for help?

Renee said...

Bella thank you for your support. har har.

I love you so much.

Tribek give me the rapists for.....

Love Renee xoxo

Renee said...

Bella it was so good for me that I am actually having a smoke.

And I haven't smoked in about 40 years.

xoxo

Love you.

Ces said...

Smoke! Renee! that's not good for you!

Renee said...

Bella I grew up in a house where everyone smoked when we were younger.

Can you imagine I smoked from about 13 to 15. Unfiltered Export A or Players. So gross when I think of it now.

I gave up smoking for lent. Can you believe it.

Thank God I did.

No one smokes now of course but if I even walk by someone and they reek of smoke especially their clothes, makes me want to puke.

Yeah, I was a rebel with no cause.

xoxoxo

Renee said...

Dearest Bella, yes it was a fake cig to go with the fake O but the squeezing of the pelvis and the legs was real. How would you explain that. I must have been digging something.

har ha.

I love Ces, thanks for hooking us all up and making us the three musketeers.

xoxoxo

Ces said...

It's called "Blogging for Endorphins!"

soulbrush said...

aaaaaawwww poor little things. so shweet...aaaawwww

Food and Drugs said...

Ohhhh, this is brutal! :-)

BT said...

Oh Bella, your comment made me laugh so much I was afraid I'd wake the man up!

Renee said...

Thank you for always supporting me Bella. What can I do for you? How can I ever repay you?

I love you. Renee xoxo

Renee said...

Now Bella, if I was Colette I would be saying 'The Rapists' 731 more times.

xoxox

kathy hare said...

Wonderful Bella! this really made me laugh! it reminds me of Edward Gorey's "Gashlycrumb Tinies".. :)love it! x

Faruffa said...

LOL wonderful illustration!!! Lovely, hilarious and magic interpretation :o)

Ces said...

No I am serious about the Moleskine. I don't want to exchange! It's a regular ruled pocket notebook that you will use as your black book, except it has little doodles and drawings dispersed all over the notebook so you won't forget me. HAHAHAHA!

Random York said...

Hey Bella! I love your flower girls! - John

Renee said...

I'm laughing again at 'taco plant' too funny.

Bella it was great last night, as it was the first time in about 3 years that I wasn't having chemo right at his birthday and having to crawl away and hide.

Went to the Keg and came home for ice cream cake (he always likes that cake, I don't).

Fun had by all and Josephine was a complete doll.

Love Renee xoxo

fashion fucsia said...

Ha ha haaaaa!!!! Poor little girl... I really adore your illos Bella!

Lynda said...

Thank you for the compliment and for the very inspiring words :) It meant a lot to me. It's also very good to know that a piece of my art made you laugh. I love when people laugh! Have a good night

Lynda said...

Lol...gotta love conversations with kids huh? That was a good post :)

Snowbrush said...

Your drawing should be of great comfort to people who only suffer from plant allergies.

Uh, if I may ask...if you're shrink, and you stay home with your dog, and your dog is neurotic, well, I mean, maybe you should put him on the couch or something?

Bella Sinclair said...

Hahaha, thank you, everyone for your kind words. Thanks for laughing along with me!

Snowbrush, my dog cannot afford my rates on the kibble I give him. :)

Ces said...

Holy Keyboard! I left 15 comments for this post!

You cannot resist. You will make it 17, won't you.

Ces said...

Your blog is very addictive. I need therapy!

justdoodleit said...

Hahaha! Taco plant! That's hilarious!

JooJoo said...

What a sweet short story :) And your illustration is so pretty! As always!

kj said...

is it almost time for something new? because everytime i come to visit i end up laughing all over again at emma's taco bella and then i see that little ass and i laugh at my own cleverness as well. and those two thoughts together, well, it's not entirely appropriate, is it?

:)

Peter Breese said...

Maybe I will flatten her!!! he he, I may just have to give her the Breese treatment and see what results.... Frankenbella! It'll be fun, just as soon as I have a moment!

Juan said...

Great work Bella!!!

Beatrice said...

I want a taco plant.
This is the type of bunny suicide humor that really makes me laugh :)

Edrian Thomidis said...

This is hysterical! I specially love your daughter's take on it. Such an optimist like her mother!

BTW - What is this mental ninja thing about? I only wonder, because you have an uncanny ability to say just the right thing at the right time. Is that the whole mental ninja thing? Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your comments always make me smile.

Bella Sinclair said...

Wow, thank you so, so much, everyone!

Beatrice, HA! This is right up your alley. :D

Aileen, oooh, thank you! Me likes sparkly.

Edrian, thank you. The mental ninja thing means my mental agility appears and then mysteriously disappears. You'd never know it was there..... :)

aimee said...

oh my god! i could not figure out what the taco plant was all about in your tokyo safari. it was a cryptic phrase, eluding me just as the new girl's hair eluded you. obviously i hadn't checked this one for an update. that is a scream!

platitudinal said...

From now on I will always check whether the taco plant have teeth before diving in for the cheese. Am quite traumatized.
