Check out the awesome Pantone Paints from LOWES
As my Adobe Illustrator Students will surely remember, this year is the year of the Emerald. You can buy 8 oz. cans of your favorite PMS# to test out on the walls, or say, maybe, paint your sketchbook, or? Get Creative!

Last night at Malone, I did my Garamond/Sabon talk and of course, this morning I found the most luminous example of Garamond art on the web! This 3d artist has a healthy obsession with cubes and his art can be found here: http://leo-nard.deviantart.com/. Let this be an inspiration to you!

Aren’t old recipes wonderful? This well worn piece of paper has a hole in the middle where my mother would stick it on the nail over the sink so she could see it without it getting in the way or lost. It is for the best rolls in the world and is evidence that when people really know their way around the kitchen they don’t really need it.
See number 6? “Knead by roll, cut into rolls, put in greased pan” Huh? Lucky for me, she and I made these together and I know that what she means is “Punch down, knead slightly, roll out about 1/2″ thick, using round cutter (cookie cutter or little sharp edged can) cut into circles, fold over, pinch, and put in greased pan.
My sister is making these today out there in New Mexico, ah wish I was there!
Love to all, Li

Hey Students and Friends! The color of the year was one that I couldn’t really embrace until lately. Orange, so very very very orange, but I would definitely sport these sneakers! Take a look at their Site

Isn’t this lovely? I was in a massively grumpy mood yesterday, teary and fussy, like a hungry baby, so, (or course, what else would one do?) I stopped at a Yard/Estate sale in the middle of my errands. Not only did I score this lovely stained glass paint tin, but 3 boxes of Winsor & Newton, almost full, 14 and 16ml tubes of hueriffic goodness! and all of this… $5.00! Thanks Be to the goddess of Chroma.
