round about: snow turtles & see through shoes

Thumbnail image for round about: snow turtles & see through shoes

I think the last time I did a round about I was bemoaning my lack of work ethic? The general malaise that followed me from our low-key holidays into the New Year? I take it all back. It’s turning into a whilrwind over here! I’ve got some new partnerships in the works that I’m super […]

In the midst of my too-small, too-busy, too-full house, all I can think about is what my dream home might be like. Perhaps one of these would fit me better? Illustration by Elena Fernandez Prada.

Well hello there! It feels like forever since we’ve done a weekly round about – between the Holidays and other projects. It feels good to get back into familiar routines right now: school is back in session, work is back to it’s normal schedule, the Christmas decorations are down. It’s kind of a relief to […]

Though it appears this Treschotka rocking horse doesn’t make noise like a traditional Treshchotka, I still think it’s pretty fabulous. See more work by Yaroslav Misonzhnikov at his site.

round about: look around & swing on rings

Thumbnail image for round about: look around & swing on rings

This year is turning into a whirlwind of good things. I can’t even keep them all straight anymore. The only wrench in the works is normally my workload dies down around the Holidays, and I look forward to enjoying the season. Not this year! I think this year I may be buying Christmas gifts at […]

I’d like to take a moment to float above my life and see all the wonderful things that are happening in it from a new perspective. Much like this floating illustrations by Eleanor Rudge – aren’t the colors versus shadows lovely?

Hello and welcome to your November – how has it been so far? I’m still the busiest of busy bees – but I have to say that at least I’m loving the work I’m doing. It’s not busy work at all, but very fulfilling. There are several things, but I think I’m most exited about […]

It’s one of those weeks where I look around at some of the other blog posts I’m loving and think repeatedly: why didn’t I think of that? Or why didn’t I find that, or why didn’t I get that opportunity? The comparison game – as many bloggers know all too well – can rear it’s […]
