a. i've noticed that recession rhymes with depression, which also rhymes with aggression. coincidence? i don't think so.
b. i like that the word depression means the same no matter what you are referring to (economy, state of mind, that dip in the middle of your mattress.)
c. ok. i'll save the fudge round for a rainy day. but the red creme goodness was nearly gone by the time i got back from the corner store with 14 cents in my pocket.

This sweet zebra cowl arrived via snail mail yesterday from my darling Rosetung! I was already dressed in my new vintage royal blue velvet jacket and heading out the door for some slacker-style Prospect.1 events on the last weekend, when I stepped out in the hallway to find a priority package with my name on it. (literally. :)
What could make me happier on Saturday morning than a letter and handmade goodness from my friend and fellow blogger!? A pic for the sharing. And for shopping: Check out Rosetung's Etsy.

I began the Art for Breakfast Blog Project in June of 2007, when I was working as a graphic designer at an ad agency. The project arose out of an honest desire to keep making art, even without much "free time". I have loved making art for the blog for the past year and a half, but as the saying goes: all good things must come to an end. I'm happy to say that retiring the Art for Breakfast Blog will make "room" for me to focus on some new projects for 2009. Please stay tuned to this, my main blog, for what I hope to be a plethora of content, posts, projects and yummy items available for download, purchase, or just perusing. Time for Lunch!!
I'm sorry to say that I will not be going on the road this year. :( Due to the evil "E" word, my efforts will decidedly be placed close-to-home in 2009. To my many beloved customers and fans all over the country: Many of you have written thoughtful emails to ask if I will be passing through your town any time soon. Your inquiries do not go unnoticed! Believe me, if I could I would drag this honest soul and art all over the country and meet you all for tea!! It's not in the stars this year. What that means though is that I need your online support more than ever! Please stay tuned to my website and especially my blog, which is like the big heart pumping my career daily. And whenever you are able, purchases through my site and on my etsy shop are always an option.
It may sound over-zealous but I am truly so excited about 2009. These times may be uncertain in all the ways I don't have to tell you, but my right brain is super-saturated, and I can't wait to share what projects are in the works. A down economy may be the perfect time to get to the gooey center. Know what I mean? Subscribe to my blog if you want the constant update, and as always, I LOVE email. So, drop me a line anytime.
Cozy at home,
