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 !

Magnolia Bakery

So what if I've totally fallen victim to the great cupcake craze going on? This pic is of Mike and I cramming our faces with cupcakes from the magnolia bakery during our trip to New York in May. Did I mention this cupcake blog is the most beautiful blog in the world? I want to systematically go through the recipes and try each and every one.

Scary Dolls!

It's been too long. . . but I want to keep posting. Last year I fell in love with ugly dolls and tried to make some of my own as Christmas gifts to the nieces and nephews. It was such a fun project and I thought they turned out kind of cute. Jake, one nephew, still refuses to sleep with his but Jesse Luke loves his and calls it his "scary."
