jgs_6042Speaking of earthly delights, our community had an Earth Day celebration yesterday in conjunction with the Lyons Community Montessori and the Green Heart Institute. Remember when I asked for suggestions on the leaf-cutter ant costume?  Well, my letterpress friend planted a little seed mentioning japanese paper lanterns, and voila, here he is making his entrance on to the stage of the Great Kapok Tree performance.

and here I am setting up the BirdDog Press booth in support of the community, the montessori school, the Green Heart Institute and the earth. oh, and I'm also demonstrating the leaf-cutter ant walk. We sold several of our new Animal Fair : Moo collection which consists of 7 notecards featuring farm animals : chicken, cow, goat, sheep, donkey, pig & bees. It was a Zero Waste event and the sun came out to shine.
