One of my best girlfriends JP always gives me the best gifts (thanks again, girl!). I wanted to share with you some recent gift giving goodies she gave me. First, I got this great "houses" tote which is just the best thick canvas and very roomy from CB2.
I love the story behind this bag...the artist's name is Antonio Benjamin and it's his interpretation of San Francisco's colorful Victorian rowhouses. CB2 has a relationship with Creativity Explored, a nonprofit visual arts center where artists with developmental disabilities create, exhibit, and sell art. CB2 gives a percentage of each bag sale to the arts center. I have a special place in my heart for people with developmental disabilities because my oldest son Jared has Autism. They are a limited edition so if you like it get it here.
Second, she got me this notebook
I am a notebook freak and this one is made from recycled newspapers so it's perfect. It soon will be 72 pages filled with art ideas, quotes and doodles.
