Lori Joy Smith, whose distinctively whimsical illustrations you might recognize fromseveral childrens’ books, is offering custom paintings through her new online store.Simply look throughher impressive portfolio, drop her an email, and she’ll send you a quote for your own personal piece of wall candy.If you’re anything like me, you love looking at children’s books as much as your kids do. Okay, so maybe not the one I have to read fifteen times a day. But I do fantasize about some of the illustrators coming over to my house and jazzing up my daughter’s room. If you’ve considered this as well, dream no more. Talented artist and mom
While it may notget you out of having to read GoodnightGorilla one more time, at least your child will have something Caldecott-worthy to look at after you’ve said, "the end." Again. -Kristen
