hello there mr. pancake

i love breakfast and making breakfast. especially with our super awesome new griddle.

so, i’m totally into the new pancake monster aprons!!! and of course need to print more more more. i think they’ll be great kiddo presents for xmas. i also printed my octopus lady on the aprons, and hopefully will have a few more designs too (can we say bacon monster…tony?!?) up in the shop.

yay! pancake monster in two different colors!

chomps

how is it almost the end of summer? i had all these big summer goals and i’m watching them crumble a bit, but it’s not over yet so maybe i can power through at the end, eh?

i’ve really gotten into one project in my illo portfolio class. we could pick something for something like a public service announcement. i chose one on taking care of your teeth, and have now been obsessed with my new friends, “teethy and the chompers.” here’s a glimpse of them. it’s going to be a little pamphlet. basically i’ve realized all teeth things like – floss, toothpaste, mouth wash, not only involve awesome words, they have such great flowing shapes. i’m totally into it.
it's teethy and the chompers!

here they are struggling with the toothpaste.

have a minty fresh day!

extreme cabbage market

i’m totally digging our CSA. we got an ENORMO head of cabbage, half of which i still have.

The other half made a good 10 quarts of cabbage soup. which is pretty darn good. it was made with other csa vegs – turnip, onion, and potatoes, shazam!!
right after put in....it barely all fit, yikes!

Also did a new market this weekend. It’s brand spanking new, so a little on the quiet side, but i really think it’s going to pick up because there’s a lot of quality to see. It’s not like the brooklyn flea, since it’s only art/craft, and is part of the amazing American Can Factory studio space which i just learned about, and am already amazed by. There’s some SERIOUS talent in that space. i know i’ll do acouple more weekends, and think it could be a really good thing. yay!

my monthly post

okay seriously, monthly? shame.

anyhoo, here’s some random that’s been going on, accompanied by the song daylight by matt and kim which i’m basically been obsessed with right now.

we went to the obx acouple weeks ago, which was a needed and welcome break. sunny and happy all week, thankfully seemed to break the evil rain spell that had plagued new york for all of june.

i’m inching ever closer to the end of printing my book, which i’ve been getting a little down about, cause it’s just taking so long. but i must just press ahead and work more than i know i have been.

after finishing the book shantaram, which except for a few drag-a-long parts was really moving, and needed to re-read a familiar book to recover from it. so i felt compelled to reread the abhorsen series by garth nix. i still curse him for not writing a fourth book. the third one ended a little short.

we gots ourselves a new stove. and let me tell you, i am in love with it. it ended up being a crazy good deal, with us selling our old stove, lowe’s rebate, AND magical upgrade because we ordered an outdated model!! josh and i have a tendency – both of us – to order the wrong item all too often, and for once it went in our favor! i made pancakes this weekend on the griddle. it was simply magical. and it has a convection option, totally choice. now, we just need to get our damn dishwasher installed.

woo new stove!!

last for this random posting is that our CSA is totally and completely awesome. we’re practically drowning in veggies (especially because a certain man isn’t pulling his weight in veg eating).

i leave you with the amazing stan the cookie man.
