round about: little green men & the nugget

Thumbnail image for round about: little green men & the nugget

It turned into a very unusual week for me. Technically, my head thinks it’s Wednesday, not Friday. That’s because I lost two days this week to the dreaded scourge known as Pink Eye. Birdie had a terrible cold, and then Pink Eye came to play and we just had a lovely time. That’s sarcasm. Though […]

Thumbnail image for round about: virtual giggles & colorful log smiles

It was the week that was. Not much happened really. The frigid temperatures remained below freezing 24/7. In fact, they remained almost entirely in the single digits. The same dang project I was hoping to finish on Monday is still unfinished as of this post. Several emails still await my reply. I’m really not sure […]

I’m so brain dead right now that this is going to be one of those posts where what I type here may not be all that interesting. Yesterday was one of those days, and today will be mostly about recovery, and what’s the word … oh yes, “self-care”. I’m going to be all about that […]

Thumbnail image for round about: plastic fungi & cardboard horses

For the first time in a very long time, I’m stuck this morning wondering where the heck the week went? Anyone know what happened? Last I checked it was maybe Tuesday morning. I guess I’ll blame it on the weird virus that’s plagued me all week. That, and a much more relaxed schedule and fewer […]

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.
