Here we are, new and improved. I hope you like the redesign.
You’ll note that the theme, sort of unconsciously, fell into a bleu, blanc, rouge/ red, white and blue melange, ultimately very appropriate for a French-American blog.
I would like to introduce you to Sujean Rim. She did the illustration on the cover of my book and then in a lovely gesture of generosity gave it to me to use in the header. Because I think she is so talented, I thought you might like to see some of her work – all the illustrations pictured here – and visit her, chez elle to see the adorable children’s books she has illustrated as well as her fashion and lifestyle work.
At the same time I would like to thank Maura Fitzgerald of LeapinDesign who made the whole process possible. She was a dream to work with every step of the way. If you’re considering making the Leap, I highly recommend you contact her.
Now I will be technically on my own, except for the ever-present kindness of my wonderful blogging friends who send me regular “you go girl” emails assuring me they will be there when I face the inevitable tech glitches. (As I constantly remind everyone, technology is not my strong suit.)
Now, I have a proposition for you:. If you would be so kind as to follow me – you see the form on the right above (and then tell me you have joined me) – I will randomly choose three of you and send each of you a “merci, merci mille fois” cadeau consisting of one of the little makeup bags I love, filled with a few of my favorite French products.
I’ll carefully choose products that are difficult or impossible to find outside of France.
