I told you this week would be holiday-themed! This week is not only the week before Easter, but Passover.

During these eight days, we abstain from anything leavened and grains. So no bread, pasta, rice, beans, crackers, etc. We rely on matzah during this time...a lot of matzah.

Morgan Taylor Beauty and the Beast Collection, Swatches and Review

Press Sample

As a child born in the late 80s, Beauty and the Beast was my absolute favorite. Something with Belle resonated with me and I just loved her affinity for books (hello, I'm an English professor!), her yellow dress, her ability to see through "ugliness." So when the live action movie was announced, I was halfway between "YESSSSS" and "awww don't mess with my favorite." I don't think they chose the right Belle, but that's a whole other story. So Morgan Taylor had the chance to collaborate with the movie and I have the swatches for you tonight! I'll be back Monday morning with some themed art.
