Special Edition: 4th of July

Standard

Kelly's patriotic print

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July weekend!   My own artist at home, Kelly McDonald Lindsay made this patriotic print and wanted to share.  This one will get framed in a white wood frame and stored in the “4th of July” Rubbermaid tote (see yesterday’s post). 

Here’s a little tid-bit on freedom:

Abe Lincoln book

So, I know this isn’t exactly about the 4th of July.  It represents a totally different kind of freedom, that of slaves.  BUT, this book is cool for another reason: the art.  Kate picked this up at the library a few weeks back.  The illustrations are fantastic!  When I read the back jacket cover, I learned that I knew (sort of) the illustrator.  We went to the same High School–Parkway South–St. Louis, MO.  He was always good at art and now look, he’s making a career of it!  Way to go, John Hendrix.  Check out his website at www.johnhendrix.com Books can be purchased there an on www.Amazon.com 

Happy Weekend to all!
