Hey there. How've you been? I've missed you. I realize it's not atypical for me to disappear from the blogosphere for months at a time so you probably didn't even notice I'd been away. I do tend to get super... Continue reading

So how often does this actually happen in real-life: I'm here at the computer and take a peek at Pinterest while waiting for a big file to upload. I see something that looks good, get up right that second, make... Continue reading

Ok, I can't go on without first admitting to you that I didn't make up my New Favorite Phrase: it was said to me the other day by my clever friend Sue. I warned her I was going to steal... Continue reading

I don't know about you, but every year I get a little bit more annoyed than the year before at the term Black Friday. Maybe it's the fact that this time of year I'm constantly bombarded by overbearing advertisers leading... Continue reading

Hey there! How would you like a nice little $10 coupon to use in the Etsy shop? Today I'm (finally) launching into this whole holiday season thing with the first little giveaway (yay for giveaways!). Just go to my Facebook... Continue reading

Leaves are turning colors and falling, the air is crisp and cool. Bright little green moments like this are fewer and farther between, so let's soak them in while we can: Molly agrees. Continue reading

I'm always going on and on about how this is my happy place. Today I thought I'd share just a few of the things that make me happy when I'm in here: Supplies and books, my Granddad's hardware drawers, and... Continue reading

Yup. Those of you who know me personally already know that as a weird super-private introvert I entered into the world of social media sort of kicking and screaming a little. Ok, a lot. I've dipped my toes slowly and... Continue reading

Did you know about this? Well, you should. I didn't, until the kind and talented quilter Maria Tavey Umhey shared with me this gorgeous quilt she just finished (click to see it bigger). This particular quilt was created in memory... Continue reading

The newest member of the family and cute little old man of the house isn't so sure about change, or travel, or a lot of other things for that matter - but he is pretty content with the pace of... Continue reading

I realize that the price for spending my birthday away from civilization is that I'm going to have to make my own birthday cake. To be fair, I should add that if it were important to me, Husband Guy would... Continue reading

Every morning we were at the beach, Molly and I would look for stories in the sand. Stories about where the waves had been. Stories about who else had been traveling through it or even flying over it. Then we... Continue reading

There was more small driftwood on our beach this month than I remember seeing in a long, long time. A gazillion tiny canvases waiting for tiny paintings. At least that's how I see driftwood. Every day the tide would cover... Continue reading

Earlier this month we finally enjoyed our long-awaited vacation to the beach, and it was the best birthday present I could have dreamed of (thanks, Husband Guy). Walks on the beach every morning. Hours spent painting fun little stuff at... Continue reading

Are you one of those people who can't wait for fall so you can scoot into that certain discount gourmet grocery (you know the one) for pumpkin everything? Seriously: pumpkin freaking everything. Well if you are, or if you're a... Continue reading

As promised I put the names in a hat and drew a winner this morning, and the winner is (drum-roll please) Stacey Larson! Stacey, please contact me privately at or send me a private message on Facebook and I'll... Continue reading

Now that summer is in full swing, my little backyard garden is starting to thrive. It truly is my happy place. The place where yummy meals will come from where old bottles have found a new life with 2 important... Continue reading

A little sneak peek at part of a project I've been working on for a client the last couple weeks: As a kid I repeated this every morning at school; as Americans we hear it a lot and know it... Continue reading

I don't often get to show you my works in progress - but that's because I'm often designing specific things for my licensing partners that can't really be shown until they're ready to launch the product in a retail setting.... Continue reading

Here's one that falls under the "probably only amusing to me" category: are you a Pinterester? Have you tried this "Explore Interests" feature? I just discovered it and it's sort of cracking me up. I realize it's just a handy... Continue reading

As promised, here are some highlights of my afternoon wandering the Brooklyn Botanic Garden: The bees that live there are the fattest, drunkest, slowest and happiest I think I've ever encountered. The wisteria was lovely but what fascinated me most... Continue reading

I was only there for a week, so I admit there wasn't really a chance to develop a true, deep love. Technically it might just be a cute little crush. A general warmhearted fondness. But love stories have been written... Continue reading

This last week while in NY, I got to visit my friends at the Henry Glass Fabrics offices to brainstorm new fabric designs before sharing a lovely lunch with other Henry Glass designers. So fun! And what timing - the... Continue reading
