New Web Site!

Dreamweaver is not one of my strong points, but I am excited to say that I finally learned enough of the program to put up my own site!  This is what the homepage looks like.  My goal is to change the homepage image and illustrations every season to keep it fresh and interesting. Thank you very much for checking it out, lauragilbertsonillustrations.com.

Green Greener Greenest

Is an amazing book written by Lori Bongiorno.  I highly recommend it and it is my pick for favorite book of the month.  It is perfect for the busy person who would like to live a more environmentally friendly lifestyle.  She clearly explains the facts about items that we consume, whether it be food or products and helps us make informed choices.  One of the great things about this book is that she gives us options:  a green way of living, a greener way and the greenest way of living.  Ms. Bongiorno does not make the reader feel guilty about not being able to accomplish the greenest way of living because she understands that that those options might not yet be available to the reader;  in comfort level, financially or location wise.  Just starting with the green way of living is a huge step in the right direction for the environment, and you and your family’s health.   I hope that you pick this book up, it will change the way you live! (or just reinforce the choices you already make!)

The RISD Student and Alumni Sale



    This Saturday I went to the RISD sale.  It is a great event held every year on Columbus Day weekend.  There are always many talented artists selling their beautiful work. My friend Liz Goulet Dubios was one of those artists.  She was selling her wonderful books; What Kind of Rabbit are You (which I got two for the nieces) and her new book Christopher Columbus.  Liz was also selling funky, cute plush toys, which you can buy at her etsy store.  It is called Recycle Rabbit. You can see us at Liz’s table with our friend Mary Beth.

   Another cool find (thanks to Mary Beth!) was a truck selling the most amazing cupcakes I have ever tasted!  They are made locally and if you are craving a delicious treat and are in the providence area look up sugar rush on twitter to see where their van is selling that day.  It is worth it!

    My plan is to join in the fun next year with my own booth, but I am also getting married next October so we will see what happens!
