**A quick administrative note! Just a reminder, as I'm sure you are all aware, Google Reader is shutting down on July 1st, so be sure to switch your subscriptions over to a new service. Personally, I'm using Feedly - it has both an add-on for Firefox and a web-only version, and it has a one-click sync with Google Reader, so it will automatically import all your subscriptions and saved articles. I think a lot of people also like Bloglovin, so you might also give that one a try if you haven't already picked a new reader. That's all, happy reading!**
Ooh, a rare art project from me :) I don't really do much in the way of classical art projects - I'm more crafty than artistic I guess. I made this little painting for N for his birthday this year. We kind of have a thing about beets, we're even growing a whole trough of them!
I used a small spare piece of Bristol paper (it's like a nice cardstock) and these really cool pearlescent watercolors. They give your illustration a nice shimmer at the right angle; I regret I couldn't really take a good picture of it.
