Please come visit us on Thursday, February 12th from 2-6pm for the signing of our second book, 'The Heartleys.'
Sherry and I will be there with the books doing a meet-and greet, and of course, we've roped in Sok to do an origami lesson with everyone! The paper will be provided just bring your lovely selves.
We will be hosted again by the ever-gracious Steven and Hiroko of Leffot at 10 Christopher Street (on the corner of Christopher and Gay between 6th and 7th Ave).

By the way, a portion of our sales are going to God's Love We Deliver, and organization that delivers meals to home-bound patients. They have been great and we hope to make this event a huge success for them and for us!
And this would also be a great time to come and see the installation which is still up at Leffot.
Look forward to seeing you there!

Waking up this morning was like coming out of a dream. Last night was our gallery opening and it was beyond our wildest expectations. Everyone. Everything. It was surreal!
We had over 200 people come out (!). And we met some of the most interesting people from fashion and art and origami.
First and foremost I would like to thank Sok Song. If you are ever so fortunate to have someone like him in your life on a personal or professional level--- WELL, one should be so blessed. Sok and I also want to thank Marcio Noguchi and the whole OMG group for helping with the prep work on the exhibit. And thank you guys for coming out!
My business partner Sherry. I haven't told you about her yet? She's my best friend and we also wrote our 2 books together A Couple O' Cats and The Heartleys. She's the best and without her-- well things would be verrrrrry different.
I also wanted to thank Patrick McDonald for being a wonderful and tireless host, and to Steven and Hiroko Taffel who also hosted the event at their store and lent us the gallery space. All of you were so important to making the night run smoothly.
Some more people who helped out... Alexander Horwitz -- wow. He helped design the 'flow' of the room and thank you so much for being a part of it all. Jamie Rosenburg who filmed the whole event, thank you!
The beautiful and stunning Hope Davis, who not only modeled one of my dresses, but was enchanting as a personality for the event.
And again, to everyone that came out. I sound like a broken record, but it was like being in a dream or in a movie. Thank you, I am still overJOYed.
