I recently went to see an exhibit by artist Kim Simonsson at the American Swedish Institute . A place I have seen some of the most delightful, whimsical art and as someone who has gone to lots of former fancy people homes I can speak with authority to the fact... Continue reading

Earlier this year as winter was dragging on and Minneapolis was trapped under the weight of a certain sports ball event, a new vegetarian restaurant opened its doors and brightened the grey days. We lost a lot of good veg places last year to retirements and lost rental contracts so... Continue reading

I am in the process of listing new items in my Etsy shop as well as changing its name and a bit of its identity. I still love geeky things, but of everything my true love is stories and storytelling. Not all that long ago at a show I was... Continue reading

I have been working on getting ready for an event that is very unique. Something I have not yet done as a creator. It is a night market that is a part of a fire arts event. Just crazy fun stuff. Fire spinning, fashion show, bands, djs, and artist market.... Continue reading

Yes - a post about guns. But probably not in the way you would expect from me at this point. A couple of years ago, after yet another mass shooting and another long, drawn out argument with people I was surrounded by, it struck me that none of us had... Continue reading

A few ideas of where to stop for a meal lunch or dinner for your vegan Valentine. I've written about these places before with the exception of Namaste Cafe and I am not sure why I haven't written about them because they are great. Let's start with Pizza Nea. I've... Continue reading

It's no secret that POTUS is a size queen. Numbers and ratings are all that matter. This is one of the first times that I can remember that I will not watch the State of the Union and whereas I know it is tempting to do so since it will... Continue reading

Another way I decided to take a chance creatively was by opening a shop on Society6. I am not a professional photographer in anyway. However, I do really enjoy taking photos. Most especially of flowers and the outdoors. I know it's a cliche, but these things can get you through... Continue reading

Since this about the one billionth post on the internet about Versailles I'm not going to get too much into it except for a few thoughts. If you decide not to do a tour private or otherwise, the best advice I have for you is to get up and get... Continue reading

For all the crap things that happened in 2017, the really bright spot in my life was traveling. Starting first and foremost this time around with Paris - somewhere I have wanted to visit my whole life. When a dream is fulfilled, it's a strange feeling to not have a... Continue reading

I haven't done one of these in a while and for some reason I'm really into Valentine's Day ideas right now. I don't often care much, but this year I do. Who knows? Maybe I feel like there's a need to celebrate love and massacre. So here is a list... Continue reading

This year has brought with it a wave of awareness I would say we haven't really seen before in this country. Even for myself, who has been doing my best for a very long time to stay abreast of the things I want to see changed and diving deeper into... Continue reading

It has been sub-zero temps for weeks now in Minnesota and if you're anything like me you don't want to leave the house more than you absolutely have to which luckily for me is not much these days. However, it is actually supposed to "warm up" to about 30 degrees... Continue reading

2017 is a year I've started referring to as the Empire Strikes Back. Because it feels to me that there is a decreasing in size group of people who seem to think the only way to be is the way that they are and that way to be is narrow-minded,... Continue reading

December is a strange month for me. It seems to both fly by and drag on forever. It is a mix of holidays, art successes and failures as well as the anniversary of my mother's death is in this winter chaos. I have been thinking all week about what a... Continue reading

Some completely lovely humans invited me to bring some objects and books of my own creation to add to their gallery they opened this year. I get my hair colored here, and well it's a wonderful and magical place. Not like how everyone uses the word magical because they can't... Continue reading

Back in August while on my way to chase the eclipse, I took a side stop to a place I didn't know existed until a photographer I fell in love with a couple of years ago announced she was having a show there. The Paine is an English style estate... Continue reading
