A Whimsical Snowy Day!

Snow, Snow and more snow! This winter NY has been wrapped in a blanket of snow. As we get older we often forget the magic of a snow day- focusing only on the problems that the 'snow' creates. Today I was reminded of the importance of taking the time to get out and enjoy the snow. With the help of some friends a gorgeous Snow Maiden emerged, we aptly named her Dolly Parton. She made many passersby smile!

Young Artists on the Rise!

The opening of the 'Young Artists on the Rise' show last week was wonderful! I was left inspired by the work of high school students from New Rochelle HS, the French-American school as well as Mamaroneck HS. Just wanted to remind you all that the show is up through this Friday January 21st @ the Mamaroneck Artists' Guild in Larchmont, NY. The work of my peers just blew me away, it is certainly an exhibit not to MIS.

A Breathtaking Backpack...

I am always searching for the perfect printed laptop cover, colorful phone case, and most importantly a fun but functional backpack. So when I was sitting in my English class, I was fixated on the beautiful backpack sitting beneath, a friend's desk. It was just stunning and upon taking a closer look I realized that it was all hand drawn! Emma took a large, white JanSport backpack and penciled in tons of intricate illustrations. Emma finished off her masterpiece with thin sharpies. I was blown away by her incredible artwork and was left inspired to labor over my own one day! Just wanted to share with you her gorgeous creation. This is certainly not one to MIS.
