I've really been enjoying my friend Erin Whelan's new blog Just Plain Lovely. Formerly the proprietress of NYC boutique Clarabella and now the studio manager at Emilie Inc. Photography, Erin has always had a knack for finding the latest and greatest musicians and artists. She's been doing some fantastic product roundups on the site, and I thought her recent post on customizable art (including this super endearing sketch from Nan Lawson) was worth sharing here as a portrait would be a great memento for engaged couples. And annual portraits in a variety of artistic mediums (photography, sculpture, illustration, etc.) would be a wonderful tradition to carry on with a family, too. —Leigh Crandall, managing editor
