Today was rather quiet (READ: boring). I did a lot of dull but necessary cleaning (car, kitchen, etc.). The wind made for quite a chilly day but it was nice to get out and get some fresh air after all that cleaning.
Something exciting did happen earlier in the week, though! One of my prints has been featured in the current issue of Literacyhead! Literacyhead, if you've not heard of it, is a wonderfully creative and inspirational e-zine for educators. Each issue is filled with book recommendations, clever teaching tools, and fantastic artwork. Please take a moment to peruse their current issue (especially if you're a teacher or you have friends who teach)!
I was thrilled when they contacted me to see if I was interested in having one of my prints featured. This is the second time they have used one of my pieces, and I couldn't be more flattered! You can see my We Fancy Poppies print in the Visual Vocabulary section.
In other news, I went to see the Levon Helm Band again. They were incredible, of course, but I'm definitely swearing off casino shows from now on. The audiences are always so ill-behaved at the casinos. But this year is already shaping up to be a good year for shows. I've ordered tickets to see Justin Townes Earle in April and Elvis Costello in May! My goal for this year, as far as shows go, is to get up to Woodstock, NY for a Midnight Ramble! Fingers crossed on that one.
