three years down, one to go.

Schools out! I will be posting some more stuff soon but for now I'm celebrating the end of the semester with a road trip to Dollywood with Maria, Rachel, and Elyza! My mission is to acquire a pair of cowboy boots.

True Calling

I thought I'd post a little evidence of what I do in my spare time. This is my birthday cake! White cake with lemon curd, raspberries, and swiss meringue frosting. I will post the one I made for Genya and Elyza's joint birthday party soon!

Words On Wheels

Where I’m From
Adapted from George Ella Lyon’s poem “Where I’m From”
by Mary Hager
School: Midtown Academy
Teacher: Whitney Ward
Grade: 6

I’m from fresh cookies,
I’m from clean laundry and chocolate fudge.
I’m from my reading chair
(green, soft and warm)
My chair feels fuzzy and fluffy
I’m from a mess, the basement in the middle of construction
Dusty, dirty, dingy.

I’m from the Milky Way bar,
Creamy chocolate, sticky caramel and fluffy nougat.

I’m from my mom’s sewing machine,
Donna and Paul
I’m from Bolton Street and no pulp orange juice.

I’m from gooey fudge brownies and gold lemonade.
I’m me.

This is an illustration for a poster that might (fingers crossed!) be printed and displayed on the MTA transit system. The poems are written by Baltimore city school kids, and the illustrations are done by MICA junior illustrators. More soon!

still kickin'

i'm still here! i know i've been neglecting my little blog for awhile, and i promise will put some new things up just as soon as i've had some time to bust out the scanner. This semester has been a quick succession of big projects, epic cake baking, birthdays, travel and busy busy weekends. you'll be hearing from me shortly, provided that i don't decide to run away and open a bakery.
