I'm loving this post on Little White Whale earlier this week. Gloria has a recipe by Deb from the Smitten Kitchen for make-at-home cheese crackers, a la pepperidge farm goldfish.
Man, I could put away a whole bag of those goldfish crackers when I was little. I bet my sodium count was through the roof the weeks after!
I went into the Party supply store on 86th and Lexington after work today, and boy is that a place money trap. I wanted to buy all the sprinkles and cupcake liners and they have tons of cookie cutters that would be good for this recipe!
Anyways, I want to try out this recipe this weekend or in the coming weeks. I'll let you know how they turn out!
I just learned about Art Hound a few months ago and the idea is brilliant.
Kate Singleton is the mind and art matcher behind Art Hound.
For $99, Kate presents 4 pieces of art that match up to your art preferences.
Plus she has a great blog where she shares a plethora of artists that are just fantastic.
[She seems like such a rad person, would love to meet her some day.]
So Genius! Go check her out.

Wow...great great great video article about 40 years of illustration at New York Time's Op-Ed page.
It's 10 minutes, but definitely worth sitting and viewing about how this little page progressed to be so big over the last 40 yrs.
Today, Amy + I ventured up to East 116th in Harlem to check out the new and only Target (for now, at least) in Manhattan.
Instead of writing about the craziness that happened inside the store, I shall write about what pleased me to bits.
All of their marketing for the store is ILLUSTRATION! And I am just dying to know what illustrator got this awesome job. They, she, or him did such a swell job on it all!
Does anyone know? I thought that I might have heard about who did it on the illustration blogs I read, but nothings been said. :(
Everything from their printed ads, t-shirts of guys handing out the metro on the morning commute, to poles in the front part of the store, to a fully encapsulated 6 train (check out this article, Target paid $250,000 to cover no.6 trains for 6 weeks!!), all of it is drawn.
Good for Target to use illustration!
Only until I can buy a home or be lucky enough to rent an apartment in NYC that has a mantlepiece as gorgeous as this one, will I be able to recreate my own version of the above.
I fell in love with the oversized gilded frame above the fireplace.
I guess I can dream...
found here on decor8 but from the home of Live Bohemian
I pulled this little mood board together for Kate's & Bret's wedding to get some ideas in the pot for when I do their invitation package.
Maybe they'll like it, maybe they'll hate it.
I just love doing these little projects.
Sorry, I only have a few photo sources for the above. If you know any, please post below :)
here's the few that I know....Rifle Paper Co., Jcrew
Remember my post about going back to Cleveland w/ Tom?
While home, Tom took the engagement pictures of my older sister, Kate, and her fiance, Bret, near Lake Erie, OH.
I was his 'assistant' which basically meant I held a lens occasionally, but more just stayed far enough back so that I wasn't in the frame ;)
I love how they turned out and am so proud of Tom's work.
Might you have friends who need pictures, you should contact my boy, Tom.
I can almost feel Spring. It stopped in New York City a few weeks back, but skipped town soon after. So, I am going to hope for these 'lollies' postcard by Gillian Bates and hope Spring comes back soon.
Tom definitely found another way to my heart this weekend.
He surprised me with this little guy, which I blogged about here and here. It melted my heart.
So, on our brunch Sunday, I thought it might be funny if I had a 'birthday' and we put the new cupcake cutie to work.
And yes, they sang to me. (Hey, my 24 1/2 birthday is April 21st, so we weren't completely lying).
