I'm trying hard to get back into the swing of things here, and elsewhere in my life. But, I've been having way too many chocolate milk is the only thing to make me happy kind of days lately. Not that there is anything of substance to make me blue. It's just the ever present struggle with clinical depression and anxiety. Oh, did I never mention that I'm chemically unbalance? Hunh. That's weird.
I wanted to share with you all a couple of happenings in my über talented, beautiful, audacious sister-in-law, Juanita's life. She is one of those genius type people who combine a passion for science (in this case environmental), with a penchant for the artistic. Recently she has been focusing her super powers toward book writing.
I am so in awe of this accomplishment I hardly know what to say.
Second is Coastal Wetland Critters Coloring Book.
The paper used is between %100 and %30 post consumer waste (meaning it was recycled after it had been used by a consumer instead of being recycled manufacturing waste) and is from a company that uses 100% wind power.
Her illustrations are just beautiful, don't you think?
One of the things I have always liked about her attitude toward animals is that she holds respect for them all, not just the cute and cuddly.
You can get your very own copy on Etsy.
She will donate $1 of each purchase to a non-profit organization working to save Louisiana's coastal wetlands. And, if you're a teacher, you can get this item for half price!
