5:00 a.m.
5:00 a.m. phone call to Claudy Jongstra, the woman of my dreams. And... this time it's for real, I AM GOING TO HOLLAND! I would love some recommendations from all you Scandinavians :) Cafe's, museums, shops, flea markets...

minnie,

Thanks for the kind words about my blog. I live in Philadelphia. Ashley commented on my other blog, Stork Bites Man, and I emailed to say 'hello' and ask her about Reggio Emilia. That's our story. :) I'm glad you are enjoying my blog.

Take care,
Andy

Holy Shit! Congratulations! I am a bit jealous. How did you contact her? Letter? Email? I have this imaginary life where I live on a farm and either make cheese (b.c its my favorite food group) or something creative.

hi Ashley, congratulations! I went to a reading of her at my old art academy, I was also very inspired. I wonder what she does lately... Let me know! And when will you be coming to Holland? And where do you go? I live in The Hague...
And I like the name FRUITprint for my fruitplatters, could I use it?
Ciao! Tessa
