we give thanks
I tried to order a bunch of prints on Red Bubble, including this one by Amy Hamilton. Love her style - organics saturated with technicolor detail, rich in hue but light in texture… almost evaporating off the page. I want to add artwork to my room that evokes whimsy and intrigue, building color without detracting too much attention from other details around the space. Unfortunately, these prints I ordered (which seemed to match the mood I was looking for) got sent to the wrong address and I never received them. Ah. What to do.
The kids go ape for Pete. This book doesn’t have a catchy song like the one about the white shoes, but I love the message behind it so I decided to purchase a copy for myself and brought it into school anyways. The kids didn’t love it as much as the original, but I think it’s something that more adults can appreciate (try to find a copy and read the ending - it’s pretty deep). All of us preschool teachers dressed up as Pete this year with different color shoes… the costumes were a pain to make, but totally worth it. What can I say, he’s one cool cat. Quite possibly my spirit animal.
Yep, more Sesame.
