I’m not above celebrating made up Instagram holidays like #nationalpuppyday (even if I am suspicious that it seems to roll around more often than once per year?) because this little treat is my heart’s best friend and she deserves it. #mozzarellaastrella
My to-do list is a Möbius strip and this is what my desk looks like. Also my 2 1/2 year old niece is in town and used the words “esophagus” and “midwife” in the correct context yesterday so if you wanna feel like a dumb idiot you can come hang out over here with us.
It’s spring wedding season in Austin which means... the calligraphy-hand-cramp is in full effect, I’ve been working 9 AM -1 AM this week and am still behind, and I am dressed like your friendly neighborhood bag-lady. BUT! @lindseyfarrellatx sent me this sweet shot of the artwork I did for her kiddo’s room (inspired by their “babymoon” in New Orleans!) now that it’s been framed beautifully and it turned out so cute! 🎵🐔🐘🐥🐇🦒🐒 🐕🐀📯💛
We ran away to the Oregon Coast for a weekend of zero cell service and spa treatments and reading and no dog-child so be gentle with me and emailing today please because I am mentally still here.
This is very weird and cool for me but @glassstaircase wanted to share a little bit about my self-employment journey and how I do what I do and if you’re interested you can read it too on GlassStaircase.org - I’ll include the link in my profile for a few days. I’m humbled that they found my story worth sharing and excited to be part of their platform of lifting up and encouraging women in our careers.
Traveling back to PDX after a long weekend of @boardingschoolcollective work and team-time in Austin. It’s a rare occasion for me to be on-site doing event load-in and installation but was a refreshing burst of collaborative creativity for this little work from home shut-in. It’s also so fun to see the pieces we make come to life in the event space, surrounded by the creations of our talented colleagues. I felt lucky to be working alongside them in person this weekend.
Getting the creative juices flowing, but slowwwly, today. I’ve got winter brain fog and need a Vitamin D breakthrough.
“How’s the house? Is it done yet?” is a good natured question we get a lot that anyone who’s ever done a full remodel can see the humor in. We just finished another round of contracting to reside and repaint the whole house and upgraded 6 windows and 2 new doors. We had a twisted load-bearing post fixed and we took care of some badly needed electrical maintenance. So... yes! That part is done! We love how it looks and are so grateful it’s been done well so I’ll spare you the list of undone things and just celebrate this milestone for now. swipe for some gnarly befores >>> #notquiteprimrose
Intended to throw together a quick styling board to use as a background for shooting stationery work samples... Of course I just inadvertently produced my favorite piece of work in recent memory. Why’s the good stuff always an accident?!
A piece I did for a darling friend’s darling daughter’s darling nursery. (I’m not even being hyperbolic- everything about this family and this room is stinkin’ cute!). Such a joy to see a piece of my work living comfortably in someone’s home and so very lucky to be continually supported by friends who value art & letters.
