Happy Friday! It’s been a long time since I’ve had technical issues. My laptop seems to be under the weather, and I can’t get it to snap out of its sluggish, sickly mode, so I’m going to go back up everything lest I lose my prized files.
Have you seen Frida Clements‘ work? Last weekend, when I participated in the Urban Craft Uprising (for a Little Kunoichi signing), I had the honor of meeting this über talented illustrator, albeit briefly. Frida has a fun book (aptly titled “Have a Little Pun“) coming out this August, and I want a copy! Frida has a sweet presence and her booth was rocking it at UCU. In fact, she had a pre-order copy at the table where I was signing, and I’m sure that her book is going to sell gazillions, judging from the number of people that stopped to admire the book. Her detailed charming illustrations winningly combines with her folksy handlettering, and I couldn’t resist buying prints. My favorite is the “Oh Whale” up there, but I also got “Honey Bee Yourself,” and had I known about it, I would have gotten “Don’t be Koi”.
Off to address technical snafus! Have a wonderful weekend, and for those in the US, I hope your Fourth of July celebrations are full of grilled goodness and sparklers!
O Fourth of July
Ping pong games and slip ‘n’ slide
We’ll have a par-tay*
*My neighbor organizes a rip-roaring party for the Fourth every year, and there’s always an amazing feast. My stomach is growling just thinking about it…

I love her work, too! I bought Nathan “Hey Gull Friend” 🙂
That’s a good one, Morgan! All her puns are clever – “Maul about you” with the bear cracks me up. Hope you had a good 4th!
Happy 4th! Have a whale of a time at your party!
Haha, love it, Max! The party was awesome. Much smaller than previous years’, but a good time was had by all!
Have a great one!
Hope you had a fun celebration too, Greta!
