Mary Blair.

My favorite movie is Cinderella. No, not my favorite Disney movie or even my favorite children’s movie. Just my favorite movie period. So when I saw these concept drawings of Mary Blair’s I about flipped my lid. They’re stunning. I’d give my left arm to own one, but it turns out some are available for around $1,300.

I thought this week was never going to end. EVER. At least there were lots of good things (designing a childrens’ book, making chili, watching Halloween) mixed in with the not so good.

This Weekend:
• Craft Night!
• make a trip to the dog park
• catch up phone call with L
• enjoy some pool time

NOTE: One last reminder that you have until Monday at 9am CST to enter the oh, hello friend giveaway to win a gift pack from Danni!
