Sitting on my Shoulders

My half-hour commute on the F train births some of my most successful character development projects. These angels and devils showed up in my notebook yesterday. The running angel on the bottom left is my favorite.

OK, here’s where I pimp/make your life better by sharing one of my
favorite things:
Paper Blanks. I’m on my third Paper Blank notebook and don’t plan on switching teams anytime soon. Here’s a list of the things I love about them and why you should get one A.S.A.P.
  • They close with a magnet – how cool is that? This way pages don’t fly open and get bent.
  • They support the arts with scholarships and grants
  • They offer a perfect range of sizes. I have one that fits in a clutch. It saves me at dullsville gallery openings
  • They don’t scrimp on quality
  • They’re the perfect sketchbook/notebook because they have lines for writing, but they’re light enough to completely disappear when a page is scanned.
  • They open flat as a pancake.
  • There’s a wide selection of covers and styles. They’re all so pretty!
  • Ooh, they all have that great string-book-mark thingy. (I’m pretty sure that’s the technical term.)
  • Many of them have pockets in the back!
  • They’re acid free (of course)
  • They’re all archival quality and take a variety of mediums remarkably well

Come over to the cool kids table and get one soon! They’re carried in Barnes and Noble, most museums and the occasional smartly stalked local bookstore. They’ll get you drawing/writing/smiling more.

#summerchores This one goes out to @jenmorello 😘 
#onlyinnyc Reuniting my husband with this one million year-old pup was a highlight on our banner blink-and-you'll miss it trip home. Brooklyn, we'll miss you forever. Thanks @kymberella281 & @peckelmann you made this guy's weekend. Today has been crap, but now it is beautiful. #gofigure Kisses! 
Nature My husband is the dreamiest. I'm pretty limited in what I can eat these days. We've sidelined dairy, gluten and legumes to help with my auto-immune diseases. There was something particularly tempting while we were in Park City this weekend. It boasted its delicious lime salt loudly. Alas, it wasn't anything I could eat. I lamented and went GF/DF etcF, and then quickly forgot about it. As with most things that cause me fleeting disappointment, Matt remembered. Last night when I got home from the studio, I found this little bottle waiting for me on the counter. He made it himself. #limesalt #love #chefwifelife Dragon swimming in a bathtub. We adopted this dishy-fishy in Mexico during the #happilyeveralvarez wedding week of dreams. There are few worldly possessions that bring me as much joy. 🌈🌈#mood #nofilter
