A Cheese Sandwich, A Teabag, A Dog, And Yoda...

Or, in other words...

Happy Birthday Tracey!

"Smarter than you think, Mushu is."

My friend Tracey's daughter is a genius of epic proportions, and for her mother's birthday she is creating an origami Yoda! 
(How cool is that?!?)

Tracey believes Yoda will add wisdom to her studio, because her current studio-mate (her dog Mushu), is a lackluster conversationalist.  If you have read Tracey's latest blog post, then you know that she also believes Mushu is 
"about as bright as a cheese sandwich"...

In honor of Tracey's birthday, I have created two portraits of her beloved "mutt"...  One as the "cheese sandwich" Tracey contends Mushu is as smart as, and one as "Yoda", because I secretly harbor thoughts that Mushu is much more clever than anyone knows.


The jury is still out on poor Mushu, but what I know for sure is that Tracey is absolutely brilliant and definitely deserving of some silly artwork on her special day...

Happy Birthday Snicker Buddy!


  1. So quirky...and VERY thoughtful. Tracey will love this!

  2. to say I love this would be an understatement... it had me snorting my tea and chasing down Mushu to show him... you are the most fabulous snicker buddy in the whole wide world... I adore you...xx

  3. Oh Kristin this is a fabulous post and those drawings of Mushu are fantastic, ingenious and hilarious in equal measure!

  4. Oh, this is just too much fun! Wonderful stuff here --- I'm sure the dog is completely flattered!

  5. oh what a perfect birthday gift for Tracey-fab art Kristin!!

  6. How wonderful. I bet Mushu is smarter than a cheese sandwich

  7. Oh my... this is so fantastic Kristin.
    If Mushu is anything like my dog... he's brilliant and just works the system to his advantage ^..^
    Your post was so funny making me giggle, and your artwork fabulous that I can see why you and Tracey are snicker buddies ;D
    I don't think I'll ever be able to eat another cheese sandwich without seeing that face!

  8. Lol! This is so funny and I might have been sad to actually eat the toast after creating a mushu face on it!

  9. Omg this is amazing...I can only imagine how thrilled Tracey is! A perfect tribute to the adorable Mushu!

    Hugs Giggles
