This was beautiful, especially the very end with the shift in meaning of the word "home." thank you for this!

A) this was lovely and B) I just bought one of your prints and now it makes me happy every day. Thank you, Amy!

Man, how I love the idea of a hand-drawn picture of a printed instruction manual. And how I love how it turned out! This is now my favorite thing in the world.

@Dave Bry Me too. I keep going back to look at it some more.

Most excellent!

I loved this (and am a little freaked out by the many parallels — stereo instructions, furiously handwritten letters from college, and patterned wallpaper — I remember from the time I cleaned out my stuff from my old house before my parents moved).

This was, in the truest sense of the word, lovely.

(Do we get new AJP desktop calendars for 2012? Please?)

Love it. Especially the name tag sketch. My parents moved out of our house of 21 years while I was away to college. Only one of my four siblings was around for the packing and the rediscovering. I remember at xmas that year how much we all quizzed him endlessly, trying to glean any secondhand memories we could. Still think of that house…I mean, THE SHED! What became of that giant shed that seemed to house every toy we ever owned?!
