march fourth/forth

the panda & the dinosaur
just a little corner of our house.
mayday studio calendar displayed with my paintings and ada's dinosaur.

today is "the only day that is a command" as my dad likes to say! so i will march forth and share my exciting news as promised. : )

i'm so thrilled to tell you that thea and i are featured in the current issue of somerset studios magazine! look for us in the march/april issue that just hit the shelves! the article is a conversation of sorts between us where you'll get to read some behind-the-scenes stories from the book process, alongside some beautiful new photographs by thea that are not in the book. we had a great day together this fall just "playing" without the pressure of the book on us. i just love her eye, and i'm so lucky to call her not only my collaborator, but also my dear friend.
i hope you'll get a chance to read the article!

here's a sneak peek :

thanks for your comments about yesterday's post. i really appreciate it. and you wanna know another truth? it took me all day to write that post yesterday... i started during ada's morning nap, fueled by coffee and flowing thoughts, then i had to put it away and was able to wrap up as soon as my husband came home to entertain the peanut. whatever it takes! after i wrote it, i saw this, and it made me smile, then i discovered this post by ali edwards. so good! i'll try to map out my day like this sometime, such a good idea, i just loved reading about her day.

see you here on monday. happy weekend!

  3. Congrats on all the great stuff you have going on, Sarah! :) Sounds to me like you're moving along just perfectly. (Also, I loved seeing those wee Ada hands playing with your collage paper in the last post. So sweet!)

  4. sarah,

    i loved seeing your article in the recent issue! and i have to confess i was kind of excited to be published in the same issue as you. my article is on "the last page" and it is my first time being published. but i just felt so honored to be published in the same issue as you. :) by the way, your book looks absolutely lovely!


  5. I learned from a kind parent when my children were small that you can do it all - just not all at once. My babies are in their 20's now and I am just getting around to doing some of the things I planned to get done before they went to school. Stuff waits - babies don't.

  6. thank you everyone! i love your excitement AND your wonderful advice... so appreciated! thanks for stopping in and saying hello!! xo
