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.”
Sean and I are sending out hand drawn Christmas cards to our friends this year. This set of Pendleton stockings will be scanned and printed on card stock. Final result pictures forthcoming. Merry, merry.
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.”
From my sketchbook this week. An assortment of cacti and succulents.
Trying to get back to my sketchbook. On and off, throughout the years, I have been faithful to my sketchbook. Other times, not so much. But the sketchbook is the opportunity to practice art, doodle, think, write, be inspired. A lot of crazy weird things have come out of it. So here’s a recent entry,Continue reading “perspective.”

But, these have a nice little usb pop out, makingContinue reading “festival mixtapes.”
I need to get back to sketching. I haven’t done much drawing this year.
Bday card, hand drawn, for my guy’s 31st. Now I just have to get his package out. Handmade cards are the best; each one unique. Why buy when you can make?
My sister is a talented artist; she can draw and paint anything, but her work as a medical illustrator and animator often plays a huge role in her personal art work, too. She recently gifted me this drawing of the merging between my favorite: a saguaro cactus and the bones of a hand. It’s brilliantContinue reading “art.”
I made all my own cards by hand. Drawings, ramblings, patterns, etc. You can see some of them here (when I actually remember to document them). I hate wasting money on cards and keep packs of recycled brown paper cards on hand. These stamps were in a bargain bin somewhere and I can’t wait toContinue reading “handmade stationary.”
Handmade cards are the best. Sean gets it and this is the best card I’ve ever received.
Drawn and inked Lionel, gifted card.
