{Good Read} Anorak + Alain Gree = LOVE

What happens when a new & innovative children's magazine & press pairs up with a favorite children's book illustrator? Perfection, that's what. 

"PLOC Magazine is the happy mag for little ones (kiddos from 3yrs-8yrs old) that contains tons of games & coloring stories for budding readers - & published by the gorgeous Anorak Press & illustrated exclusively by Alain Gree. 

I've been a fan of Alain Gree's illustrations for awhile now & have even have found a few lovely vintage Gree books for Sayer over the years.  I just learned about the children's magazine, Anorak this summer & was delighted with the 2 issues that I purchased. You can imagine how excited I was to hear about PLOC!


It definitely passed the Sayer test. These were his favorite 4 features on first read. They couldn't be more perfect for his interests right now. While this is a UK publication, the world wide web allows all of us to partake in the fun. Definitely a favorite find & good read. Hope you are finding time to relax & curl up with a good magazine or book this weekend!

{Fun} Time to crunch in the leaves...

Wow, things have been busy around here lately! I'm still playing catch up with orders & scrambling to photograph new klt:tees. I just saw this image when I was quickly perusing pinterest on my lunch break. There was just something about it that made me stop and admire it- so it's my image of the week. This is what I wish for this weekend. How about you? Hope you all have a wonderful weekend & find time to crunch in the leaves or smell the flowers... (depending on where you live)!

{Shop Update} Alfred Hitchcock love...

I wasn't kidding when I said I have lots of new tees on the way. Yep, I picked up another box of klt:works tees from the screen printer on Friday. I've been excited about these raven tees for a long time now & have enjoyed dreaming up different ways to photograph them. However, with limited time & the attention span of a 3yr old, making my  photographic dreams into a reality becomes more of a spontaneous adventure that involves a lot of crossed fingers. There is also the fact that I really don't like modeling the women's tees. I think somewhere between working from home, becoming a mom, & entering into my 40's - my crazy body image issues have reached an all time high. But, sometimes I just have to suck it up & leave my insecurities at the door. Chris & I had a date night on Friday night while Sayer had a sleepover at his grandparents house. Part of our fun evening included some wine, dipping into the costume trunk & documenting some tees. 

Then to continue this crazy vision of mine, we all headed out Sunday on a really blustery day- to play in the "wind tunnels" downtown. I love the gritty backdrop of the alleys & was doing my best to channel a little Alfred Hitchcock while trying to catch up with Sayer as he ran & explored all of the cool nooks & crannies. 

So there you have it... raven tees for the whole family! (I have yet to upload the raven onesies & toddler s/s eco tees.) The next two boxes of klt:tees are actually getting printed by a new screen printer that I just found. I can't wait to see them & have another little documenting adventure...

{Music Monday} Colorful Knots...

I don't always buy albums in full anymore- I tend to pick & choose songs. But the minute I learned that Lisa Hannigan had a new album out I bought the whole album without a second thought.  Her new album is called "Passenger" & I was interested to learn that it was made between the 14th & the 22nd of February 2011 in Bryn Derwyn in Wales and the Church Studios in London. February is my favorite month so that in itself was a cool bit of information to read. Plus, I love things that are recorded like that. The timing for this album's release is perfect! I've been so busy lately & in need of some great music to help me along the way. I've been listening to it non-stop in the studio (& in the car) since Wednesday. She even sings a  duet with Ray La Montagne (another studio favorite)- their voices are amazing together. Her videos are always wonderful so I was excited to see this one for "Knots"- it seemed like a good way to start the week. Happy Music Monday! Alright week... bring on the color!
