My grey slips are wearing out, which brings me to these...

I came across these adorable cupcake journals recently. I love having a sketchbook on me at all times, but the to pressure to make sketches worthy of an adoreble sketchbook is too much for me. I'll enjoy these online and stick to my el cheapo Pratt Store sketchbook.

I spent a lovely afternoon at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden yesterday. I was actually a little late for peak cherry blossoms, perfect for daffodils, and a little early for tulips. Thank God it's warm again. Off to Ithaca for the weekend. Back in time to cherry blossoms rather than snow I hope!

"No matter how motif cubes are aligned, their patterns will always match to create amazing images full of beauty and harmony. Unlike a traditional puzzle or game, there is no right answer or winning move, only billions of fascinating images to be created."

I love it when there's no right answers; but billions of combinations? Once you've hit a million you might want to go outside and smell the roses or something. I mean, really, life is short.

I'm so fortunate to be celebrating Easter with so many family members, including my Aunt who's in from Roma! These images encourage me to arrive early and take over the decor from my mother who will likely have her hands full cooking for 9.
It's hard to pick a style icon, but I certainly do love the Zooey Deschanel cotton commercial scene where she's wearing the turquoise cardigan and heels. When I was a Sesame Street viewer, my style icon was clear. Crystal Gayle made a couple of appearances that have defined my life. Long hair has always been my style and I remember being a toddler and identifying with her. Some things just inherently resonate with you. Thanks, Crystal!
Recently when I was at the local grocery store, (the local grocery store is reserved for emergencies, as its produce is usually riddled with insects and etc) I felt compelled to pick up some saltines. Not 'cause of a stomach ache or other malady, but 'cause I missed the flaky, salty taste in my mouth that's often reserved for recovery. Here's a way to incorporate saltines into your personal style.

It's someone's birthday today (and April fools- no doubt the birthday boy or girl has heard a lot of HILARIOUS jokes about that one) so here's a tribute to you, and your birthday. I love these happy birthday and digit cake molds. Much more reusable than numbered candles; unless of course all you need is a 2 and a 9 for the rest of your celebrations!
