I spy ... Naoshi cards at Atticus Bookstore

As you may know, I'm in love with the Japanese sunae artist Naoshi's work (see my previous blog post) so it was wonderful seeing her art on Red Cap Cards for sale at Atticus Bookstore, here in downtown New Haven!

If you've got the Naoshi bug and live in or near NYC, Naoshi recently contacted me to say that she is part of the Emerging Contemporary Artists of Japan Show at 2/20 Gallery in New York City from May 25~June 6, 2010.

London Calling!

London Calling - Big Ben Illustration by 3LambsGraphics

This summer my husband is going to study in London ... and when his program is over, I'm going to meet him there!

This marks my very first trip to the UK! I'm super excited and a bit overwhelmed since I have no clue about were to even begin planning the trip.

So I ask you, friends, family and blogland to please share any cheap + clean hotel recommendations, yummy food spots and spectacular sights to see!

Feel free to share links, tips and picks!

Boto Dolls

Making Boto, originally uploaded by botodesigns.

I realized today that I always make Boto the Roboto dolls right before craft shows then sell out and never have any up in my Etsy shop ... so get ready for some Boto dolls coming to the Botodesigns store very soon :D
