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 !

shopping list

I'm being induced a week from today. This baby's a coming. A lot of people ask if I feel ready. . . the answer is almost. Others ask if we've had to buy anything at all since its another girl and we already had everything. . . the answer is almost nothing. But just for fun, and 'cause I'm excited about my new baby purchases and gifts I thought I'd share my shopping list. BabyBjorn Travel Crib Light - Silver (Thank you Sugar House Friends!) Baby Monitors - Up for suggestions as to best brand and style mela bamboo swaddles by aden + anais (This set was came as a gift from a friend. . . I totally had my eye on them, perfect for a summer baby.) Green to Grow Bottles a new diaper bag from Skip Hop Baby Book by Sara Midda I don't scrapbook, and I'm horrible about photo albums (everything stays digital) but Baby Books I can do. In fact, my mom kept one for each of us kids and I loved looking through it. I think its a really good tradition to keep. . . This one

the law family fourth

I know, I know. Somehow everyone else managed to get their Fourth of July pictures posted by the 5th or 6th of July. . . but what difference does a week make? And not only am I late, I'm a little backwards. I'll start with pics of the 5th, our Law family get-together. (This is Mike's immediate family, not the huge Law family that would include step-brothers and step-sisters and several more generations of Marion's side of the family as well.) Shown here on our front porch, in columns top to bottom from the left: Marion and Linda, Kristina and Jacob, Jared and Matthew and Katie, Lucy and Elias and Eliza and Coleman, then Mike. We were sorry their other sister Celestia and her fam couldn't be here. Oh, and please don't ask why Lucy is in a straitjacket pose, I have no idea why. This is Katie and Lucy playing during our little family bbq. It was fun to see her bond with her cousins. Before that, we spent the weekend on a little "stay-ca" up in the mounta
