Ed Emberley Tribute

i'm back from an overnight in philly. it was fun but i am a bit exhausted. i am also trying to train henry to sleep in his crib or at least not need mommy so much when he wakes up and it's not going well. i am not cut out for letting your baby cry it out. moving on...

when is saw this post on coolhunting about an ed emberely tribute exhibition, it struck a cord close to my heart. see, when i was a little girl growing up in alaska, ed emberley came all the way to my elementary school. it was one of the most exciting times during my years at bear valley. we had weeks and weeks of  emberley inspried events: book clubs, sales, drawing contests. it was an ed emberley fest! it felt like walt disney or dr. seuss was coming. when he arrived we all crammed into our little gymnasium and he gave us drawing lesson--ed emberley style. it was awesome. honestly, i had all but forgotten about ed emberley until i saw this exhibition posting. so if you live in los angeles go to the scion gallery and check this out for me and if you live elsewhere buy your child an emberely book--they are awesome!
