what do you think? Luckily I have amazing artist in my family/friends (Margaret/ Patrick / Potsch) so when I get ideas that involve drawing I can just sweet talk my way to my dreams through them. Friends and family are nice to have.

What an awesome site The Book Cover Archive. I am a big rainbow colored sucker for sites full of just image after image. These covers are just beautiful and what inspiration. Great resource site!
I also, of course, want to get them all as tattoos. especially the ... well I guess all of them.

I adore Obama! I am, for the first time in my life, excited about our President and look forward to our Country's future.
So, isn't there a better way to celebrate him and what he stands for than with a brownie?
And i find this to be racist rather than kitch. Not happy.

I found a new word for myself! Elevenses
In the United Kingdom and some other Common Wealth, elevenses is a snack that is similar to afternoon tea, but eaten in the morning. It is generally less savoury than brunch, and might consist of some cake or biscuits with a cup of tea. The name refers to the time of day that it is taken: around 11 am. The word "elevenses" is seen as a little old fashioned.
In many Spanish-speaking cultures the term las onces (the elevens in Spanish) is used to describe a similar meal. Among Chileans, the tradition was known as under the same name, although in modern times, it has shifted in most respects to later in the afternoon, more closely reflecting the pattern of British "tea time". In Australia and New Zealand, it is called morning tea or smoko (often little lunch or playlunch in primary school). Choice of foods consumed at morning tea vary from cakes, pastries or lamingtons, or biscuits, to just coffee. In the Royal Australian Navy it is commonly referred to as "Morno's".

I want to start this up again!!! who's in? send me pictures of you enjoying your elevenses.
Check out the Ultimo too. They have some nice designer digs.
PS- doesn't it seem like Michael Korrs has either hired all of the project runway kids or is just straight up jacking their style? either way i like it.
At first I loved the birdie cookies but as i looked deeper I found kitties!!! I love them. I want them and i would eat them with a big smile!!!
you should too.
Buy them or check out all their other designs Here.
I have had my eye on Punam Bean since Potsch and I got engaged over 3 months ago. Her style is just magnificent! I love the candid and colorful moments she catches with such graceful ease. I am slowly gathering my "if I could have the wedding of my dream" list and she was my photo gal until I realized she is located in NY. I know she travels but I am not sure that we will have the budget for that. But you never know, things can change in an instant. I am thrilled to have found her blog as well. It is nice to get to see all kinds of her photographs and not just weddings.

I thought I would let you judge for yourself and maybe let me know what you think.
Just incase, he is the real Little Edie-
I thought it would be a little more inspiring and motivating to work on and next to brand new TV pilots but I am feeling weak and worthless instead. I always wanted my blog to be focused on the positive so I feel like I am cheating a bit by posting these thoughts but I was hoping by getting them off my chest I could then get them out of my heart. What is the positive side to this? Anyone have any advice? I know that it is a good thing that I am working. It is good that I am getting up early. It is good that I am saving money and not spending much. It is good that I get to blog every now and again. I am trying to get in touch with my inner Oprah and voice my gratitude. Thank you for letting my release and let go. I love you guys.
I have also been bringing my lunch to work in tupper wear. It is not so hard to make a change - you just have to do it really. and it is especially not hard when it looks so pretty...
How cool are these eco friendly snack pouches and Lunch kits? I love the bamboo utensils. I love the everyday eco adjustments. It makes it so easy to improve. I would add a cloth napkin in the mix too.
Whenever that baby time happens I am definitely going to barrow Ryan Marshall's idea for my pregnancy journal. What a special gift for you and your baby daddy and for your baby.
Oh my god- I am at work posting this post - i just got to really read the baby messages and I am just all tears- looks like my cateyes will need a redo
You can also go here. There are also some cool free fonts there too. Whoa, there is lots of free stuff on that site. even photoshop brushes. neat-o!!
