I posted the above image on my tumblr, but I wanted to put it up here too because you can see it bigger. This is a piece that I did a month or two ago in conjunction with a larger educational piece that shows children how disabled peoples move about (it's a personal piece that is taking me a bit longer to complete). The subject of disability is a personal topic for me since my mom developed a neurological disorder when I was in highschool. She has a chronic disability that she constantly has to battle and learn to adapt to. I think it's important for young people to learn about disabilities and just have empathy and compassion for all people. Especially people that are different than you. *more on this subject later.
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!
