sending you postcards... The bluebird giveaway has officially ended, the winner is Katy from Winsome Hollow! I appreciate all of the congratulations and kind words!! xoxo
...... These homemade chocolate peanut butter cups have been on my mind since before the holidays, but as time does...it snuck away from me. So happy I finally gathered the ingredients and made them, simple to create and just as delicious as I heard they would be.
Mom, the vegetarian lunch you made was delicious, and then to take an afternoon nap on the couch with the sounds of home whirring in the background, beyond comfort.
Dad, you read about Lily and her baby cub then shared it with all of us.
Candace, for the bag of fresh-from-the-garden-tomatoes-in-January! So good.
That's me! Last spring somebody wonderful at Farrar, Straus and Giroux contacted me to see if I would be interested in having one of my photographs (found via Etsy!) on the cover of a book coming out in January 2010. Today a package was delivered, Mom was over, it was perfect, we smiled and hugged when we saw the published book, two were sent along with a stack of book jackets. It is so exciting to see my work on a published book, but even more so because the book is written by Ariel Gore, I feel honored.
I'm going to read it this week, then go to the bookstore, find it and tell people I took that photograph, then purchase several as birthday gifts to give all year long to all of the women who are close to me.
Kadee suggested I do a giveaway here...a book and print, so yes, let's do that, too. Say something in the comments, be sure I can track you down...giveaway ends on Wednesday, January 27th at midnight pst.

Today I worked on hearts, love sayings, and sweet images, while learning more details about the devastation in Haiti. My heart was breaking for all the pain, fear and sadness in all that I saw, and it is heavy, wishing I could physically do something more at this very moment, above and beyond a generous donation. ♥
Hermie spends most afternoons beneath any blanket that is handy with just his nose peeking out while he dreams of running through the park leash-free, garage doors opening, and sneaking endless amounts of cat food.
