From the desk of Lauren Palmer
Good morning my friends!
Today I want to show you a fun project I have been working on with my friend, local artist Andrea Holmes. I’ve actually written about Andrea before here on the blog–you can read her story here.
Due to the quarantine, I had to delay the publication of our Summer magazine. What typically would have published the first of May was postponed until the first of June. So as a little apology gift to my magazine subscription holders, I sent them a mini cookbook to download with 8 of my favorite recipes from over the years on TAOLB. To make it extra special, I sent Andrea pictures of the 8 dishes, and asked her to draw them on her iPad.
When she sent me the files I couldn’t stop squealing because they were so stinkin’ cute! Here they are:
This was such a fun project to collaborate on–and you’ll be seeing more to come, I’m sure. For now I leave you with a little treat. Below is wallpaper for your phone that has all the darling drawings Andrea made! I use it on my lock screen and it makes me sooooo happy!!! It’s good to keep things around us that remind us to be joyful. Have a wonderful day my friends. Please reach out to Andrea if you have fun commission.
