The 2011 Food on the Brain Calendar!

For the past few years, I’ve put together a calendar of my photos  – sometimes food, sometimes flowers, or whatever struck my fancy at the time – and given them as gifts. This year, I’ve decided to make it more widely available for anyone who’s interested. I now have a store page on Qoop, and you can order any of the various items directly from them and they’ll print them to order. I’ve used calendars from Qoop myself and they’re very nice quality, wire-bound with heavy paper. One is all food photos, all from this blog in the last year. One is scenery from around Skagit Valley (no tulips, sorry, but there is a shot of daffodil fields) and the last is a self-indulgent selection of kitty cats. Check them out and let me know what you think, or if you’d like to see a different collection – I can put together other designs if there’s interest.

Also, in case you’re in an art shopping mood this Christmas, remember you can buy prints of many of my photos over at my main website, or order them framed directly from me. They make great kitchen art!

Greetings to all of you that have made it here from Food52 (there’s a lovely review of this site here).

Make yourself at home, leave a comment, tell me what you think!

a little distracted…

Flats Tapas

Sorry about the lack of a post today – we’ve had an unintentionally exciting week. But when I get a chance, I’ll be finishing up a description of dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. Mmmm, tapas!

And if you’re in the area – come check out the Rexville Grange Art Show this weekend! The opening party is tonight: Jon and I will be providing soothing background music for your shopping pleasure, and some of my weaving (and our CDs) will be on display. It’s never too soon to start Christmas shopping, right?

Spezzatino

Just wanted to do a bit of a shout-out to a new online food magazine. It’s called Spezzatino, out of Toronto, and they just put out their second issue. Not only is it a handsome magazine, put out by volunteer effort, and not only do the proceeds go to the organization Healthy Food Bank, but the new issue has some of my photos in it! You do have to pay for a subscription, but hey, it’s for a good cause. Go check it out!
