Bubblicious




The kids and I had a perfect summer moment in the backyard this afternoon with a bubble wand. I love the new wands available. When I was a kid, it was just a little bottle with a tiny wand and it took lots of practice to actually get bubbles to blow through the little hole. Now there are a million different wands in cute shapes (ours is a ladybug). Just wave and go. Even my toddlers can manage it.

I would love to give bubble wands as a party favor at a BBQ or outdoor summer event. But I don't want to give out a plastic wand. I want a wand made of metal with a wooden handle and maybe an oversize jewel-like bead at the end of the handle. I could put the bubble solution in pretty bottles or even vintage canning jars with a cool label. Someone should manufacture these and sell them at Smith and Hawken or in the Sundance catalog.

Ahoy Westchester!

Details about the kids? What kind of design are you "into"? Illustrations, by any chance?

More graphic design than illustration, but I can hook you up with several great illustrators that I work with.

Gab,

I feel way more artistic and classy when I look at your blog, your home, your kids, and on and on.

We should get Bam, bam, bam. We also love a book about Anansi the spider.

One of things I'm most impressed with is how artsy you make things look whether you get them from emeco or from a random surplus sale.

Jim, I'd say half of my favorite kids books have been gifts from you and Traci. For example:

-The Reluctant Dragon
-My Father's Dragon (By the way, what's up with always giving us dragon books?)
-Ferdinand (Traci recorded this for us and I immediately bought the book. I love it.)

And now we love listening to Just So Stories. Thank you.
