One of the cool parts of the tour is their sticker wall.

This is just one small portion of it, but you can see what the stickers from each year (starting in 1979!) were.

So many good memories and so many cool women are doing magical things there.

      Tracy, Happy Mother’s Day. Can I please ask what book are you reading that show how to draw/paint a sunflower? I am trying to teach myself how to do both. Love your photos!

  • Colleen

    Happy Mother’s Day Tracy! I’ve been thinking a lot about you this week, I’m this Mother’s Day has been tough so just wanted you to know you and your family are in my thoughts.

  • ELLEN

    Cooper has the most gorgeous eyes and I know that a boy doesn’t want to hear that, but it is true. The puppy love photo is too cute. I so enjoy seeing your week, always educational and fun. Your paintings are fantabulous. Happy Mother’s Day, I know that it must not be your best year celebrating this day.Thank-you!

  • mary e.

    thought of you all day yesterday, Tracy….

    your watercolors are so great. can you share what pencil sharpener you use for your prismacolors? I have watercolor pencils, but my sharpener doesn’t give me those nice long sharp tips like yours….

    Thx!

    Happy belated Mother’s Day, Tracy! I cannot believe you got a private tour of Mrs. Grossman’s sticker factory – so cool! In the small town where I grew up in the Midwest there was a little store on the town square called The Confetti Shop and you could buy Mrs. Grossman’s stickers there. They were on rolls and you could tear of the squares and put them in little wax paper bags to take to the cash register. I would save up my money constantly to buy stickers. I’d trade them at recess with my friends and I actually still have a bunch of them in baseball card sleeves at my parents’ house. I just couldn’t part with them because I loved them so much and make me nostalgic for the simplicity of my childhood. Thank you for sharing some pictures of your experience there.

  • Amanda

    That sticker factory looks amazing!

    Happy Mother’s Day, Tracy. I know it must have been a tough one this year. xo

  • Erin

    Hi Tracy,

    I wanted to say how much I enjoy these posts. I usually look through it while I eat a bagel at work on Monday mornings.

    I also wanted to thank you for sharing your experience with your Mom’s passing. My own Mom passed away unexpectedly 6 days ago and although I am completely shattered, your posts about dealing with the grief and finding signs from your Mom in your every day life helped prepare me in some weird way to do those things for myself.

    Thinking of you this Mother’s Day and definitely feeling your pain,
    Erin

    • Tracy

      Thank you so much for the kind note, Erin. I am so sorry to hear about your mother. I’m sending you love and light during this hard time. Remember to take good care of yourself through the process. I am sure that’s what your mother would have wanted. All the best, Tracy

  • LJ

    Happy Mother’s Day! I love that last photo of you! Beautiful <3

  • Kristen

    Tracy! Thank you for reminding me about part of my childhood!!! I grew up in the Bay Area and didn’t realize until this post that Mrs. Grossman’s stickers are made there. I remember having books and books of those stickers. Loved this blast from the past. Oh! and your Petaluma pictures are GORGEOUS!

  • Michele

    Love your new haircut, it suits you so well! the poppy photo is stunning and the burrata, oh how I love to eat it too!

  • Beth

    Your hair is AMAZING! Does Farmer Tucker still have those magical eyes that Joy talked about back in the day?! Whenever I see a post about him my mind immediately goes back to that podcast!
    Its always lovely to get glimpses into your life, thank you for continuing to share your journey.
