Let's peel back these layers!

juliannlaw Here is a closeup of the endpapers in my debut picture book, THE WORKD’S LONGEST SOCK. I work digitally in Adobe Photoshop but the program doesn’t do it all for me! I knit all the pixels by hand! Haha! I do have things I do to help me work quickly and efficiently, though, like using layers. Here you get to see me take off those layers one by one till we are back at nothing but a background. The World's Longest Sock is now available on  Amazon ,  Barnes and Noble ,  Target , or wherever you  buy books !

A Whole Lotta World Shakin'

Paul Newman has always been my biggest Hollywood Crush. My Top 5 Favorite Paul Newman movies are as follows:

5. The Long, Hot Summer
4. Cars
3. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (I made the Hubs watch this with me last night. . . he fell asleep.)
2. The Sting (I've tried to make the Hubs watch this one with me, too. . . he fell asleep.)
1. Cool Hand Luke (I made him watch this one with me when he couldn't fall asleep cause we were still dating and he had to be nice. I also made all my college roomies watch this with me once and eat hard-boiled eggs during that crucial scene. It just might be my favorite movie of all times. If I haven't made you watch this with me yet, consider it your homework from me. . . and please don't fall asleep!)

Okay, I just hope he doesn't take his dressings with him to the after life. We sure love them on earth!

I thought of you as soon as I heard the news. You have always been a true fan of Newman.

ok - so I'm laughing.... ironically enough, Cool Hand Luke is one of NOAH'S fave movies too - and I can NEVER stay awake either! I don't even know about the boiled egg part!

I'm totally heartbroken, too! Anytime you need a Paul fix let the hubby snore away and I'll come and be rapt with you! (Though I think Butch Cassidy is my very, very favorite. The egg scene makes me vaguely queasy. But then, I hate eggs.)
This is one of Richard's all time favorites as well! I watched it, and then found myself eating an egg salad sandwich the next day! :)

I knew you'd post something about Paul baby. He was a class act. So glad you dragged us to the movie! His popcorn is fantastic, have you tried it??
