worth 1000 words: the wooden cube

Thumbnail image for worth 1000 words: the wooden cube

When regular building blocks just won’t cut it … Ok, who am I kidding. These blocks aren’t for the kidlets. And that’s partly why I like them so much. See more at The Wooden Cube.

round about: New York City

Thumbnail image for round about: New York City

You may have noticed this week was a little light on blog posts, and a little heavy on Instagram and Twitter updates! I just returned from a whirlwind trip to New York City, and I’m still processing all the awesome that happened in such a short amount of time. The trip was sponsored by American […]

This week sped by in a blur of random last-minute projects. It’s amazing how much more I can get done with Birdie at school full days. Yet I constantly feel like I didn’t get enough accomplished – I guess my goals just got bigger! But it’s hard to complain – between freelance projects, couple contributor […]

worth 1000 words: this king, this castle

Thumbnail image for worth 1000 words: this king, this castle

If you haven’t made a children’s book yet, dearest Javier Garcia, I hope you do soon! Because Hail to the King is my kind of fairy tale. For now, I guess we’ll have to buy the poster to whet our appetite.

Thumbnail image for round about: liquid sculptures & mountain pillows

I think, as Spring Breaks go, ours was pretty dang fine. This week included the movie theater, the zoo, a big playdate at our favorite indoor playground, a painted ukulele, 6 painted canvases (mini sized), 3 treasure hunts, fabulous fancy foods, and possibly a water park if today goes as planned. I mean really, could […]

Thumbnail image for round about: flower people & yarn keys

I’ve spent lots of time over the last couple of months trying to wrap my head around my new and “improved” schedule. Birdie started full days at her Montessori school – which we were all super excited to see! But, it’s the end of an era for the two of us. I’m surprised to see […]

worth 1000 words: whales of wood

Thumbnail image for worth 1000 words: whales of wood

Take a peek at Karl’s whales. Because they’re gorgeous. Because wooden whales are cool. Because he’s the designer of the Areaware wooden animal boxes that I adore – with lots of big gooey, scribbley, fat hearts written in the margins.

Thumbnail image for round about: double exposed & construction dresses

I think everyone in the northern half of the globe is having a rough winter, at least, that’s what the news is implying. But man, it’s like the land of never-ending winter here – where’s the evil Snow Queen? Why can’t we get rid of her already? It’s putting all of us on edge. And […]

Thumbnail image for worth 1000 words: a little spring bird

I’m going to pretend there isn’t a “ground blizzard” outside my door, and temperatures in the negatives. I’m going to pretend Spring really IS around the corner, with this little bird by my side. Just a Little Bird by Nan Lawson.

worth 1000 words: heavy balloons

Thumbnail image for worth 1000 words: heavy balloons

Ceramic balloons so heavy they will never float, and yet they look as light as air. I love it when art turns things upside down. See more of Nina Jun’s work at The Jealous Curator.

round about: the aftermath

Thumbnail image for round about: the aftermath

Whoa Nelly! You’d think after several days back from the big event (that would be Alt Summit) that I would be back to normal, coasting along on some good memories. Nope. Instead, I think I’m going through withdrawal. I’m checking Facebook every 30 minutes to try and stay in contact with the blogging pals I […]
