so i don't really know what the internet protocol is for this, but i can't stop thinking about how adorable and supportive and wonderful this is. the other night i was looking for something on flickr and came across the page of a woman who is pretty much the coolest mom ever. it was actually kinda of inspiring to think about how creative she is in her life and how creative she is with her son. art night involved a kid more covered in paint than the paper and there's a video of her son acting like a gorilla dancing around to his favorite band, the gorillaz.

The Ones We Love is "a project highlighting young and talented photographers from around the world. Each artist contributed six photographs of the person(s) who is most important to them, taken outdoors in a natural setting. The goal of the website is to portray the people who are loved, cherished, and inspirational to these artists, and also showcase the differences and similarities in the photographs each of them took within the same guidelines."
They are very touching in different ways. One of my favorites is below:

Just my weekly reminder that Etsy is wonderful.
Valentine's Day is coming up (although everyday is a good day to give sweet gifts to your sweetie); there are some great and unique options there that will surely be appreciated more than the tired box of walgreen's chocolate and roses with the stems pinned on.
I don't think I'd pick pork for my first choice of scratch 'n' sniff stamps, but it's still a pretty cute idea.

In fact the teenager thanked the friendly constable for checking her jacket as she and several hundred other teenagers were entering the United Way's 5th Annual Starlight Film Fest late last night at the Galaxy Cinema.|
|Asked if she was embarrassed by the story, Clinton laughed yesterday and shot back, "I thought my high school picture was cute."|
