snapshot: knitting journal entries.

These are some winter entries in my knitting journal. A few hats–one I gifted myself, and one I gifted to a colleague with a toddler. I knit these both in December and loved each one of them. If you don’t know about how I keep track of my makes, check out more snaps from myContinue reading “snapshot: knitting journal entries.”

reading sketchbook |eleanor.

I read Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman about a month and a half back–I actually listened to it and the reader’s voices were incredible. The Scottish brogues really brought this story to life in ways I wouldn’t have experienced if I simply read the book. I’m featuring this entry in my ReadingContinue reading “reading sketchbook |eleanor.”

sketchbook | reading journal.

Here’s another entry in my Reading Sketchbook. I love that I’ve kept up with this little project of tracking my reads. Here’s what I record: Page length, completion date, how long to complete, whether it is an owned book, a library book, a kindle book, an audio book, or something completed in the serial readerContinue reading “sketchbook | reading journal.”

inspiration | notes.

I have a lot of sketchbooks. Ones that are half filled, ones that are entirely filled, ones never touched. I start them, I stop them, sometimes, I finish them, whatever that means. But, nothing is more special to me than the way I conceive of my music podcast, available at my other love, P+C. It’sContinue reading “inspiration | notes.”

fabric | block printing.

I recently took a block printing class, and despite my obsessive compulsive tendencies getting in the way of carving a perfect block, I learned a lot about the process and my work habits, too. One of the most important things I learned about my own making adventures has to do with how much I haveContinue reading “fabric | block printing.”

succulents + gouache.

Sean and I have been messing more and more with gouache painting. Last Saturday, we decided to pain some succulents + cacti. Sean was really deepening his color palettes by layering and I was working the opposite by totally washing everything out since I want to be better with the water side of paints andContinue reading “succulents + gouache.”

favorites.

These are some of the things I’m obsessing over in my maker world, right now. From top left to right: local wool roving about to become thrums for some mittens like these ; mini sketchbooks in bright colors by clairefontaine ; cheeky rubber stamps for letters, stickers, and homemade wrapping papers ; paper thin stitchContinue reading “favorites.”

festival mixtapes.

My guy and I attend a lot of music festivals together. So, in honor of our summer trips (Bonnaroo and Pitchfork), I made him a usb-mixtape. They look like those old cassettes we used to spend hours recording for potential boyfriends, crushes, or best friends. But, these have a nice little usb pop out, makingContinue reading “festival mixtapes.”
