Licensing children illustrations for Esperanza Threads!

Just sending 4 images for their children's organic clothing line. This is very exciting!
Esperanza Threads is located in Cleveland. They are a Fair Trade organization.
This group trains people to sew so they can get their lives back together.

The organic cotton they use is grown in the United States and the garments are made in Cleveland.
Sister Mary Eileen of the Ursuline order started this program.

A few years ago I ordered organic onesies to sell them myself. This one has my favorite Pingquik. I am basically sold out of all those that I ordered!

New York Trip

Trips like these inspire me and give me ideas to do other things with my products. 

I had a great time seeing my sister in Pawling, NY, college roommates, friends from way back from PR and one that left Cleveland for NJ. She still misses Cleveland. 
It was a shock to my son the amount of walking we did. We relied on the subway like never before. When I used to go with my grandmother, we took cabs.
The sad part was my American dad died the last weekend of June --so sad to die alone.

I had to see the 9/11 Memorial. I went up to the top several times since 1975. I used to stand on the bottom of the building and look how it swayed. My mom and I took the PATH from Hoboken and she was impressed at how many people were going up and down the escalators.

 Lost in Central Park...we found Belvedere Castle. I never ventured to visit Central Park because it WAS dangerous back in the 80's and early 90's.

My good friend Lynda Klich showing the book she co-wrote The Postcard Age: Selections from the Leonard A. Lauder Collection.  I am definitely buying that book--the images are great!

Coolest green project is the High Line along 10th Ave. Perennials taken care by volunteers, spots to rest & eat while looking at buildings were once the area was ugly.

Le Pain Quotidien, I believe a Belgian yummy chain serves super fresh food: bread, bread and bread!

Extraordinary Fireworks in Ridgewood, NJ! Who knew?! Happy 4th!!
