It's 2010 for a while already!

Hello blog. I have been neglecting you. So sorry - Life has gone into over drive. The holidaze over-BAM! -into 3 projects for three months.

Project - Top Secret -for now.. an illustration one. Here are some sketches of a character design that was rejected. I will post more about this when it's over.

Project Two - I'm bringing the talented Jarrett Krosoczka in to Lynbrook N.Y. - to wow! the kids at Marion Street School!! It's Parp week- "Parents as reading partners". Lots of bulletin boards to fill with Lunch Lady fun!

Project Three - Our new house in Amherst MA. It's our "Escape from New York" - sans Kurt Russel. It' s a fixer-upper of the 250 year old kind. Holy Mackeral we have bitten off a lot! -But it's wonderful!!!!! It's on a three acre farm we share with one neighbor. Wooded and situated off the beaten path but near all of the great things to do in the Pioneer Valley. We have already had great weekends up in Northampton and Amherst. It's gonna be fun! I am decorating the house in a fun - non traditional way. I will nod and wink to it's age- but this is my chance to fill a small home with the fun. Brimfield here I come!!

So- I may be blogging a bit less until April. But I will have lots to share then!

Oh how I love all that hardwood! I can completely appreciate your vision - we live in a 1880's church converted into condos, which we try to maintain as best as we can (keeping the character is hard!). I can't wait to see how you decorate your new place!

This house is so exciting! We have been arguing about a name for it for weeks. My husband wants "Hot Dog" kid wants "Birch Estate" - all of my ideas have been rejected!
