round about: lines can be … felt apple watches

By the time you’re reading this, I’m very very very hopeful that my hard work this past week has turned into several new Easter products over at Smallful. I’ve been sketching, model-making, adjusting, illustrating, cutting, taping, gluing, redoing, rethinking, revising, and photoshooting all week. It’s been such a blast. But, I’ll admit, my eyes and […]

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 […]

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 […]

It’s almost Valentine’s Day! I’m really looking forward to having the holiday on a Saturday this year, so we can fully enjoy a family day together. Life is moving too fast lately – even on the weekends – so taking some time to hang out as a fam is exactly what we need! I’m thinking […]

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 […]

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 […]
