Pantsuit Army, prepare for lift off!

Just thought you should know, in addition to, you can now use to get to this blog.

Not straying too far from the Mothership, here! 

Bathing in color!

Last night I felt the overwhelming desire to bathe in color.
Bright colors. Pantsuit colors. Bouncy Castle Colors.
I wanted to feast my eyes on the brightest colors imaginable....

Luckily, I have some really colorful friends who were able to show up at 6 O' clock for a party that started at 6 O'clock.
Luckily, I have a friend named Bingo who has a crazy-colorful house for us to play in!

Here are a few of the zillions of colorful photos I took!

  Julia, Roxanne and Charlene, doing "Valley of the Dolls".

          Kate adds more sparkle!

        Marnie, Julia and Roxanne doing "Cats".

          Bingo's playhouse.

       Bri and Kelly at the Silverware Garden.

             Mark Nilsen bathes in color.

    He has an eye for these kinds of things.

      Of-course Bingo has really luscious umbrellas!

     Kate with a lovely green umbrella.

      Kelly models her vintage Lilly Pulitzer Pantsuit on the stairs.

        Ooh, let's feast our eyes on that Lilly, shall we?
        Ah, bathing in color!

           Kelly in pink.

 Our fabulous hostess, Bingo!
 Bingo just finished her book, and this is wonderful news. Congratulations, Bingo!

Thank you Bingo, for sharing your color with us!
Next up is the Pantsuit Bouncy Castle party, and you are all invited!

Chappaqua Indian Pantsuit

Shawnee returns to his Indian roots, and has changed his name to "Chappaqua".

Chappaqua has decided to wear this Pantsuit for many moons to come.

Pleasin' Peach Pantsuit

For the next 24 hours, we will be testing Pantsuit color against blog, and blog against Pantsuit color.
Thank you for your patience.

Testing, testing

                          THIS IS ONLY A TEST.

This is a test. This is only a test.

The Hillary Clinton Army is conducting a test of our Pantsuit color broadcasting system.

Please put on your brightest Pantsuit and be prepared for assembly.

Find a safe location to contemplate Pantsuit color until you have received further orders.

This is only a test.

Hillary's Bouncy Castle Birthday

Pantsuits, bouncy castles, Hillary Clinton's birthday party.
Kids, we gotta start planning ahead. October 26th will be here before we can say....

I just spoke with the guy at Tucson Bouncy Castle rental. We can have a whole day of fun in a huge adult-sized bouncy castle for 190.00. This includes delivery, set-up, and everything but the Pantsuits!

Pantsuit Playhouse and Bouncy Castles

As we speak,the Pantsuit Playhouse is being built by Shawnee!

Note the attention to detail, especially around the lapel.

This is very exciting news! When it's done, it's time for a PANTSUIT PARTY!
This brings me to another important subject, one that I'm sure has been burning in your brain like it is in mine...
The subject is, of-course, Bouncy Castles...

Bouncy, bouncy!
This Bouncy Castle, now offered on E-bay, is only 250.00 
People up to 240 pounds can jump inside them! I'm spending all my loot on the Pantsuit Playhouse right now, but just thought I'd bring this important topic up.
It seems to me the H.C.A. should own one of these beauties!

Bouncy, bouncy....

How to

Please visit ExchangedConnect today, as the art project we did at Island entertainment video store is featured!


I'm back in Bisbee, happy to be home, but missing everyone from the Vineyard as well!
While I've been gone by boyfriend Shawnee has been hard at work building "Now/Studio".
It's well on it's way and I'm really excited about this!

Some friends and I spent my last night on the Vineyard singing this song, chorus after chorus, top volume, probably to the annoyance of many. Here in Bisbee it's still running through my mind...

Sans Pantsuit Contemplations

Today is my last day on the Vineyard. Boo hoo. 
I've had such a great time, I hate to leave. I wish I had more time to visit with my family and my friends, but I will hold dear the time that I did have.
This afternoon was spent sans Pantsuit, on the beach, wearing only clay.
I didn't bring my camera along. I spent the day contemplating the meaning of...
I drew Pantsuits in the sand. I came up with some fun new designs.
I vowed to dedicate my life to this Holy Garment.
I know that you know that I'm not kidding.

I contemplating changing the name of this blog to "The Pantsuit Army".
I would like your thoughts on this idea.
The Pantsuit Army will be dedicated to bringing more art to the world.
More art in schools, more art for kids, more art on the streets, more art for everybody, everywhere.
What the world need now is more art...
and more Pantsuits, of-course.
I also imagined some of the Pantsuit parties we will have. 
Pantsuits and bouncy castles? Oh ya!
Giant Pantsuit prints with us as the living stamps? Uh-huh.
And what about Extreme Pantsuiting?

Fast and Furious Furniture Fun!

I've just posted the art project we did yesterday at Island Entertainment on ExchangesConnect  and boy are my arms tired!

Many thanks to my Pantsuitin' partner, Mr. Tangerine Man! 
Mr. Tangerine Man, you've certainly earned your "eerily form-fitting" orange suit.

Thanks also, to Chelsea of the video store, for wearing the holy garment, and helping us out.

Ann, owner of one of the best video store's ever, is really cool. You should check out the video selection in this place, it's unreal! 

The art project will be featured next week at Exchanges, and I'll let you know when it's up!
It's half past Pantsuitin' time around here and I'm all blogged out...
it's time to hit the streets!

The Disintegrating Pantsuit

It's been one long, wonderful day of Pantsuitin'.
Bart, I mean,"Mr. Tangerine Man", and I started the day fully Pantsuited at Island Entertainment video store,ready to work on our art project.
We spent a crafty day on our project, and we were thrilled with it when we were done.
 I will post the photos of this tomorrow, but it's too much to delve into tonight.

Upon completion of our project, we went gallery hopping...
We saw some great art. I even made a couple of great art trades with friends!

We then goofed off wherever the Pantsuitin' seemed good. Signs that the Obamas are here are all around, and there is definitely electricity in the air.

I was having Pantsuit failure, but I didn't really care. I lost the arms in the morning, and felt like my light blue studded Pantsuit was going to give me a draft-aft at any moment.
 But it somehow managed to stay more or less in one piece. 

We decided to end the day with a swim in the ocean...Pantsuitin' style.

Ocean Pantsuitin' has got to be one of life's greatest pleasures. I really mean that. I wonder if Hillary has ever tried it?

Bart calls his Pantsuit "eerily form-fitting", and compares his to a Super Hero suit.
Though he was tossed around in the waves, his Pantsuit held up beautifully.

Mine however, was like a rare flower that only blooms for a day, and then must die.

Bart as an Italian model modeling the latest in Pantsuit beachwear. 

It was about this time that my Pantsuit decided to give up the ghost. All the people on the beach laughed as it disintegrated in front of their eyes.

From the designer to the thrift shop, 
from the closet to the sea,
this Pantsuit returns to the ocean,
and on some distant shore...
becomes a polyester tree.

Goodbye light blue studded Pantsuit!

Fast and Furious Furniture Fun!

Tomorrow I will be doing a short "How-to" project at Island Entertainment video store, to post on ExchangesConnect, as well as this blog.
The project will be done on the sides of the shelving unit in the kid's section, and will involve paint, stencils, toys and glue.

I whipped up this 8' by 12' banner to cover the videos with while I work. 
 I hope I can round up a few Pantsuiters, because I just want to do some Pantsuitin'!
My source of Inspiration:

Make your own kind of Pantsuit

President Obama and family are coming tomorrow and Martha's Vineyard is crackling with excitement.
But unlike past certain-somebody Presidents, Obama's arrival will be stealth. There will be no flag-waving, no hand-shaking, and there will be absolutely No public events.
Bummer. Everyone used to love when the Clinton's came to the Island, because they went out out their way to meet and greet the locals.
In the meantime, The Clinton's vacation to Bermuda has been cut short due to Hurricane Bill. No one knows where they are spending the remainder of their vacation, but I seriously doubt it is here.
Where in the world is Hillary and Bill? Nobody knows. But I'll do my best to keep you posted!

Well, maybe we'll get lucky and catch a glimpse of the President Obama, I hope so.
But for now I think I'll put on a Pantsuit and sing this song......

Hillary Clinton Army Exclusive!

You won't see these photos anywhere else, folks, this is an exclusive showing.
We have been cleaning out my mother's photographic studio to prepare the way for the new and very Avante-garde "Jackie Baer Studios".
While doing so we unearthed these photos... 

Jackie took these photos back in the mid 1980's when Bill Clinton was still Governor of Arkansas.
This was Lani Guinier's wedding. My mother was the wedding photographer. If you recall, the Clinton's and Lani had a falling out in the early 1990's.

Wow, I'm sure glad Hillary discovered the Pantsuit!

Let's look a little close, shall we?
Stay tuned for more photos "to be revealed" EXCLUSIVELY here with the HIllary CLinton Army, direct from Jackie Baer Studios!
