I love mangoes. My mother-in-law’s mango tree is FULL of them at the moment. We’re putting them in smoothies, eating them for breakfast, making salads with them, etc. And I hate mushrooms. I always pick them off pizza, just like a six-year-old. It’s the taste and rubber texture that I can’t deal with. However, in […]
During the Thursday afternoon #OMHG Twitter chat, hosted by Jessika of Oh My! Handmade Goodness, someone shared this Albert Einstein quote: Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving. And it’s true, isn’t it? In life, balance isn’t a static noun, but an active verb. Sometimes we get to […]
Ok, maybe not just the lushes. Perhaps you’re looking to expand your cultural knowledge beyond reality TV. 😉 When I was creating my “Wine Bouquet” designs, I incorporated a variety of wine bottle shapes for some visual interest. Here are the most common bottle shapes, with shape characteristics and types of wine generally found in […]
Yesterday morning I was on the verge of some existential creative crisis, wondering why I started on this printable project, should I be doing something else with my time, was I being true to my creative voice, why do I suddenly hate this project so much, what was it I thought I should be doing […]

Today’s been spent working on new designs & patterns. I’ve had this idea for some wine bottle patterns and this is one I’m currently playing with- There will be coordinating patterns and what not, but I’m kind of digging my little flowers of wine bottles. Whatcha think?
Today makes a month since I’ve blogged. It was an inadvertent hiatus, but a necessary one. What follows are my reasons for my absence (both on and offline) and the realizations and decisions I came to during my time away. I began this blog about the time I opened my Etsy account two and a […]
Earlier this week Design*Sponge featured this Italian flat by the sea that I can’t stop admiring. It’s beachy and coastal in a subtle, understated way that I find myself moving towards. When I first moved to the coast, I was all about bright colors and beach accents everywhere, like I needed to scream, “I LIVE […]
A few weeks ago I talked about testing out Spoonflower to have them print my Tea Towel Calendars. I love the multi-functionality of tea towel calendars, so I was excited about making some. I received my test towel back and guess what? I LOVE IT! I’m totally making more of these to put in the […]
