Ice cream, sun lotion and a “time out” chair with an umbrella! 

I’m a Louisiana girl, born and raised. Though I did not grow up in south Louisiana, my family’s Cajun roots are firmly established there. My grandfather grew up in St. Martinville and the rich, colorful Cajun culture is a short hop and jump away. When I was a little girl, my aunt gave me a book about the folk hero Clovis Crawfish. He was the creation of Louisiana legend Mary Alice Fontenot who was a journalist, kindergarten teacher and children’s book author. The books are filled with French phrases and stories of life on the Louisiana bayou.

Clovis Crawfish is the inspiration for my art journal page. My brother Jed has lived in Lafayette, Louisiana since college and can mimic a Cajun accent like nobody’s business! So, of course I asked him to come up with a Clovis Crawfish quote for me to use…

FYI “cher” is pronounced sha (with a short “a”), not like Cher the singer!

I wanted Clovis to have a girl friend, so I picked the name Cerise for this little crab since she’s red!

Ain’t they cute?!
