Book Looks

I was pleasantly surprised this morning to find out that Book Looks is using my art for a Stretchable Fabric Book Cover for
Barnes & Noble's Exclusive Back to School 2009 line!
Say goodbye to those brown bag covers that rip, tear, and wear! Now you can cover all your text books with durable original 'Tough Love' art by me! No cutting or taping required - just stretch it on. And major bonus on it being machine washable! Spill something on it? No problem! Toss it in the wash!
Does it get any better then this??

The North Star

My favorite illustrator of all time, Peter Reynolds, is releasing his latest title: The North Star and I couldn't be more excited!! I just read an advanced copy and I fell in love with it! It so beautifully portrays how we seek out our own paths in life to reach our full potential as an indivdual. A great message for children.

My fellow art lovers would also like some of his other books,

particularly The Dot and Ish.

Happy Thai

I was clearing out my camera phone when I came across an image I took last weekend that I completely forgot about!
The happiest Thai dish I've ever been served!
After a meditation workshop at Lotus Yoga, the fine people at Joey's Thai in Montclair made my rice smile, which in turn made me and my pal Alison smile! Joey's the best!

Art Sale

I came across a great Art Sale in Union Square today!
I didn't buy anything, but I recommend you stop by!

Snow Day!

I woke up to a winter wonder land this morning! Schools were cancelled. Roads were treacherous. I called out of work! I didn't feel like risking my life today...and plus I had a snowball fight to get into with the neighbors.

Photo Booth

I have a small addiction to Photo Booths. I have a collection of them that were just taped all over my wall. I decided to put some order to my wall and put my collection on to a cork board (I also have a small obsession with cork boards). The oldest ones towards the top, are of my Grandmother in 1943 with her friends on the night they went to see Perry Como. There is also one from the 50s of my mom and my uncle and there are some shots from the 70s of my parents. The more recent ones are towards the bottom of me and my friends and cousins. The one in the middle is my favorite, hence why I blew it up. (Don't be fooled...I wasn't in a giant phot booth or anything.) It's of me and 3 of the 4 Cadden kids I used to babysit back in my college days. They are so adorable and just welcomed a 5th Cadden to their family! I'll have to see if we can ALL fit in the photo booth next summer. ;-) So much fun, so many memories.
