This past week I’ve been obsessing over a presentation I’ll be giving next week. It’s all about living a multi-faceted life, which I’ve realized over the last 5 years is my favorite way to live. It used to seem like a problem to me – I always had too many interests and no way to […]
In the past seven days I have drawn about 24 different new product concepts. It’s always a bit overwhelming at first, but simultaneously very invigorating. Once I get going things just flow, and by the end of a good day I feel, well, it sounds cliched, but I feel more alive. It’s funny how I […]
You know that moment when all the projects that have been brewing in the background suddenly begin popping up and needing immediate attention? Yep. That’s how this week ended. And I have a sneaky suspicion the next 2 or 3 weeks will continue in that vein. Actually, there are enough fun, exciting, cool projects in the […]
It feels like this week the weather is finally on the cusp of shifting from cold, damp Spring to almost Summer. It’s not the biggest of shifts, but it’s enough here in Minnesota to greatly improve everyone’s mood! Between that and the fact that I get to spend part of my weekend completely engulfed in […]
How was your week? Every May the inevitable happens: schedules fill up. Suddenly weekends are filled with plant sales and dance recitals and craft sales and other Spring extravaganzas.It’s like every organization that ever was wants to celebrate Spring with their Annual Hootenanny.

For […]
There are times when I consider myself an artist through and through, but never quite like this. Now I want to be a fiber artist too and make yarn wrapped kids teepees. Read the interview and see lots of luscious photos in The Red Thread’s interview with Natalie Miller.
Normally this would be my moment to sum up the week and share some of my favorite finds from round about the internet. But this week? Oh no, not this week. It’s National Ukulele Day people. And I’m in love with ukuleles. It’s something about their diminutive size and sweet little sound. They’re a little […]
Students take to chalkboards once a week and create these beautifully rendered quotes – all in anonymity. I wish I was the professor who stumbled upon them first. Stop by Designboom to see more drawings by Dangerdust.
Wow it was a busy busy week over here! As a blogger, I’m feeling pretty proud of myself for sharing not 1 but 2 DIY’s here on the blog – did you see both the Watercolor Crystal Paintings and the Mother’s Day Box of Chocolates? It’s all thanks to Birdie’s full day school schedule – […]
