Hi folks! We’ve recently launched a new website where all of my work – from Clarissa Explains It All  to Bear in the Big Blue House to Being Audrey Hepburn and more - can hang out together.

My .02 Cents Blog has moved as well. I hope you follow it over to the new site and read along. You can even subscribe for updates and blog posts sent straight to you, or follow via Tumblr if you prefer it.

See you on the other side!

Continuing to move beyond the Arnold Palmer – the name of the popular ice tea and lemonade combo. Now in addition to an Amanda Palmer (just a splash of lemonade) there is (courtesy the French Press my local barista) the Laura Palmer (made with red zipper tea). Who’s with me on this! Any further additions! This is something I know we can all make happen. Who’s with me? #thefrenchpress
