book covers











remember way back when... okay, so it wasn't that long ago. and probably not long enough ago. but anyway, i made a "goodnight nash" bookcover out of the "goodnight moon" book cover for nash. well, i've been having a hard time coming up with good book to use for haven's book cover (because they have to have everything the same, right?). i mean, "runaway haven" isn't exactly what i was looking for. then, the other day it hit me. we were cleaning out the basement to make more room for the growing family and i came across a box of my favorite books. and "harold and the purple crayon" just so happens to be one of them. duh! and the best part is that it even works (with a little photoshopping help) with the eventual color scheme i will use for haven's eventual room. i plan to use some of the book's illustrations as wall art (photoshopped, of course).

love it! i will never be as creative as you. i hate that, but i'm starting to learn to live with the fact. would be nicer if i were close to you so your creativity could rub off on me a bit. sad. miss you. still love it.
