Tim Burton at the MOMA

I'm a lucky girl, because the boy and I are going to spend our Christmas break in NYC. We fly out on the 24th and come back on the 29th and meeting some family while out there. A week of eating, drinking, walking and seeing!

While we are there.... we will have, HAVE to catch the Tim Burton exhibit at the MOMA. The exhibit will be a three-fold examination of his work from as far back as his childhood days! Read the review for yourself on Flavorpill.

Upcoming Digs

The boy and I just signed a lease yesterday for a new place! Super exciting! I am dreading the packing and moving part (yes, we will have professional mover, thank goodness!) but I am looking SO forward to unpacking and organizing.

So, we are going from a 800+ square feet, 1 bedroom apartment into a 1600+ square-feet-single-standing-house just a few blocks away. Pictures cannot do this place just, but you will notice that there are TWO pictures of the kitchen- which I am SUPER excited about. Gas range with six burners and grill, TWO convection ovens, sub-zero fridge, TWO sinks, skylights and cabinets galore.


The place has a great upstairs living area- two, separate, large rooms for dining and living, a full bathroom and small office. The downstairs part (don't you love those stairs?) has a large, master bedroom with bath (double vanity, separate shower and tub), a WALK-IN closet, laundry room and smaller second bedroom, which will be converted into my art studio.

And the icing on top of the fancy-pantsy cake is a little plot of land outside, for gardening!

Ok, this is starting to feel like a fairytale again, so I will have to stop here.

Uber Cool!

Check out this website- coolest thing ever! You can sketch and save! Limited color palette, but fun to play with and the "look" is really neat. Some amazing sketches by other people on the website.
