The Gardener by Sarah Stewart

The Gardener by Sarah Stewart is one of my all time favorite books for children. I read it to Everett for the first time. He hung on every word. I cried like I do every time I read it. It's a great spring into spring book!

home today and yesterday

I have been all consumed by my boy with cough and fever hence no post yesterday....long nights and days...I was so happy I found this meant to be christmas present in the's magnetic balls and sticks. He sat for a good long calm time sorting then building then sorting back to little compartments. It's a great toy from Magic Cabin.

hot crayon melt

This is an all time favorite project here at the studio. We use old fashioned food warming trays covered with tin foil. The children use peeled crayons and draw on the tin foil. The crayon melts as they draw (fascinating!). We then make a mono-print by taking a piece of paper, placing it on the drawing/tin foil. The children take a roller and roll the back of the paper....WAA LAA a beautiful mono-print worth framing!

La Famiglia Dimitri

Tomorrow we take Everett to The New Victory Theater in NYC to see La Famiglia Dimitri, an alterna-circus. This is what The New Victory Theater says:

A household name in their native Switzerland, La Famiglia Dimitri is a captivating clan full of circus surprises. Led by the world-renowned Clown Dimitri and featuring his daughters Masha and Nina, his son David and son in-law Kai, LA FAMIGLIA DIMITRI combines extraordinary high wire acts (over the audience!) with live Latin American music and laugh out loud variety acts. It's an animal-free, absolutely amazing alterna-circus for all ages!

"The Dimitris draw standing ovations without end." – Neue Z├╝rcher Zeitung

We can hardly wait!

overalls are back

I loved overalls say 15 years ago. I had white ones, oatmeal ones and big denim ones. I have to say I've been seeing them around and I think they're making a comeback. Not sure if I'm ready to sport a pair although they are perfect in every way in the line of work I'm in. Time will tell.
