A New York Minute

Because I don't journal and I would like to, I now do a New York Minute to bring you through my week. I didn't get this done last week because I was convinced I was dying. OK. I had a BAD cold. Whatever.

  • I had a score of infinite giggles and deep dreamy conversation with my very best friends. I can only wish you our kind of joy, the kind that happens over French food in a room bedecked to look like Sherwood Forest. If you'd like that exact experience I suggest you grab the Duchess and my JenPal and head to Robin des Bois' (photo by Johannes Kroemer)
  • I walked over the Brooklyn Bridge. OK I kind of swam over it. The air in Bklyn has been thick enough to Butterfly through.
  • The best and most impressive thing is this:
    I (along with my biz partner, Pam aka. mom) celebrated a massive birthday event marking our one year anniversary of owning and creating www.AmberInk.com
  • oh and I created this banner to advertise said event:
  • I finished the line art for my first official picture book dummy.
  • I had it looked like by a real life publisher thanks to Pat Cummings and her supportive and brilliant but mega-intense Children's Book Boot Camp.
  • I busted my Wii power sensor bar that I keep across the room
  • I busted a picture frame and had glass shatter across my room
  • I managed to kill the mosquito that I was chasing in the previous two transpired events.
  • I reveled in a 50% off sale at AI Friedman (I had to buy a new picture frame) I went to the store, because I love it, but you can buy stuff online too. I also love going there because it allows me to run next door where...
  • I spent another glorious afternoon at Books of Wonder
  • I sadly listened to a lot of Back to Black
  • I broke through a 1 inch piece of plywood with my bare hand (don't worry, it was intentional)
  • I went to Florida to get more...
  • Health Coach training (I'm getting healthy I figure i might as well help everyone else do it too.)
  • Speaking of which... I lost 3 pounds!
  • I made new friends
  • I invented new friends...
  • first: gum drop raccoons:

    obviously a gateway drug, naturally leading to the invention of
  •  gum drop penguins.

     Both are working titles so please, by all means, please suggest names for these soon to be expansive lines.
  • I came home to my beautiful Brooklyn, and kissed the hard wood floor that runs from my bedroom to my studio.

    Yep, that's what happened. Now like my friend Jay-Z says, On to the next one.

Thank you for the update! I missed you, missy (as always). I haven't been journal-ing and wishing that I did. So I decided to start status-updating for my journal. More details later. XO

Sounds fabulous to me. You sure had a whole lot of wonderful stuff going and a cold too. Dang, I hate when that happens, but it looks like you have been in life and that's a good thing cause this was a wonderful read. Don't you just love Books of Wonder?? One of my favorite places in the world. I love that store. I wish there was one here in North Carolina it's fabulous. May I will have to open up! LOL!! Pat Cummings is amazing isn't she? So glad that you got to sit with her.
Best to you,
V

1. I, too, have been reveling in our fabulous night of over-feeding ourselves (yet again) and such good talk & laughs. It cures what ails me.

2. Sorry you've had a killer cold! Waaah. :( i hate that.

2. Gumdrop animals--ADORABLE. My word.
