This week friends are renting an RV and taking off to where the wind blows them. Oh how I wish I could do the same. We are moving the rest of the studio today. My goal is to have the home studio organized by the end of the month. ahhhhhh!
The image above is from one of my most favorite authors/illustrators, Oliver Jeffers. It's an illustration from THE GREAT PAPER CAPER.
I have not had one moment to keep up my blog let alone all the other things I must do like laundry and such. I have just been moving the studio like crazy and YES in this heat! Thank you so much to Chumley and Michele for making it fun and actually painless. Oh and thank you to Tracy for her pick up...I always wanted a pick up. I will be back to normal after the 24th.
I just finished this book by Isabel Gillies. A true story. I couldn't put it down. A great quick summer read. Check it out here.
I just emailed Isabel Gillies to tell her how much I loved her book and in 5 minutes she emailed this back, wow! (now I have to email back to say the studio is closing :( :
Thanks so much for this great note AND for posting the book on your blog, (which looks very cool, I love BLT's too)! I am very impressed that you can do anything with a three year old much less read a book and have a store. We have pals in Darien, next time we are in town we'll come check it out.
Thanks very much again! Best wishes, Isabel Gillies
I owned and operated an art studio for children, paper scissors oranges in Darien, Connecticut for a decade. I keep my eyes wide open for inspiration....I am happy to share what I love, do and find here.
