Charley Harper's beautiful wildlife illustrations are now being featured in a children's holiday collection at... Old Navy. Huh? One of Old Navy's designers, Todd Oldham, worked with Harper on a book before he passed away in 2007. He encouraged Old Navy to create a children's line of t-shirts, board books, and more for all of their stores. I feel like I have to excuse/defend myself for being at the mall... my cell phone battery died... but I'm so glad I was! Look at this fantastic coloring book I got:
I steer away from coloring books( and opt for more open-ended art projects), but I'm hoping my daughter will share this with ME! This is a present I 'll tuck away in the growing stockpile of fourth birthday gifts I'm making and collecting for her. I'd like to add this next one to the list, but I think we have enough memory games. It looks beautiful, doesn't it?

I know you come here for ideas on making...not buying, so I have a suggestion. Please, start saving all of your empty toilet paper rolls. Paper towel rolls will work, also. I have a holiday tutorial coming up, and I want you to be ready with supplies. Here's a clue, some of you may want to have it ready by the first day of December. That's all I'll say for now. I hope you have a great start to your week.
