Let it Snow!!

A little bit of snow and the world goes mad!! The most annoying thing is getting to work took an hour and a half to do 8 mile and there s no snow on the roads, whats with that!!!
I love the snow, i think it makes everything look beautiful! I feel really Christmassy, if only we were allowed to drink mulled wine at work and watch home alone, I'd make a good boss!!

The great paper caper!

I was inspired to blog today by something a friend of mine wrote in a blog interview he did recently. When asked about people that inspire them he chose someone I love, who I would have chosen, Oliver Jeffers. His Children's books are beautiful, one of my faves is 'The Great Paper Caper.' His illustration style is so quirky and fresh, really inspiring! If you don't own one of his books go buy one, you don't need to have kids to appreciate them!
