Cranking out Itty Bitties

I have 6 new 8 x 8" grackles boards in production. Yesterday I pulled out a stack of prints and had fun assembling the backgrounds. Grackles arriving later this week. I'm using a new substrate by Ampersand that I'm liking--a local company. It's a new product line of natural wood panels cradled at different heights (the ones I bought are 7/8" inch). They look super sturdy for encaustic, so a product to keep in mind if I get back into using wax.

I also got a chance to meet on of my food heros! I went to a veggie fest over the weekend and met cookbook author Isa Chandra Moskowitz. She was signing books and so I picked up this new one. I own Vegan with a Vengence, Vegan Brunch, and Vegan Cupcakes Take over the World, so you could say I'm a fan. Her writing style is so funny, so right now this new cookbook can be found on my bedside table vs. my kitchen. I'm looking forward to trying some new recipes!
