Gift Guide

Gift Guide

I put together a little gift guide this year. I could have gone on and on, deciding which pieces are perfect for which woman, but I stopped at six. In reality, all of my pieces are for every type of woman. I have been taught that time and again at my shows when the unlikeliest […]

A Soggy Finish

A Soggy Finish

Yesterday, I did my last outdoor show of the 2013 season, and boy was it a send off. What was forecasted as “showers in the morning, turning to a cloudy Autumn day” should have sounded more like “downpours for the entirety of the show hours.” C’est la vie. I do a good amount of shows, […]

Maybe you noticed my bloggy absence, maybe you didn’t. But the fact of the matter is, in the past year I have been a total blog slacker, and I have no reasonable explanation. I just…left my mojo somewhere and forgot where it was. I distanced myself from the blog partly because I was having trouble […]

Loving, Doing, Eating

Loving, Doing, Eating

In case you were wondering what I’ve been up to over the past couple of months, here’s a list: loving, doing, and eating. Loving: The Ruth Heller coloring books my girls got for Christmas. This post by Liz Smith (a fellow maker and friend) about the price of handmade. We Three Illustration. Love her doodle-y […]
