keeping my hands busy




I think that marbling is one of my least favorite things to do to decorate paper. However, I like how it sort of bleeds through to the other side.

Lately all I have been working on is sewing lonely ghosts.

small updates

Working - slowly but surely. November 5th J. Hamilton and I will be down in St Petersburg at a craft market selling all our handmade goods! I have started too many new pieces and I need to buckle down to finish them before we head down there. We also have a date to make some kudzu paper before the market!

home baked bread, stew, &family dinners





Lately I have been feeling so incredibly low and I have noticed I am losing touch and this deep connection I developed with myself over this summer. Last night I made myself spicy pumpkin and coconut milk soup. Today I baked simple vegan bread and cooked stew for Dana, Ashten, and I for dinner.

The windows are open and the cool October breeze is washing over us while we lay sleepily on the couch watching movies. Cooking for my friends gives me such a wonderful feeling and brings me back to simple things that I love.

This autumn is a good time for change.

vengeful vegan creepy cupcakes for your sinister soul

Last night a few of our friends hosted a spooky sleepover complete with Scream 4, noms, and scary sleep. Dana and I decided to make bloody blackberry vegan cupcakes with chocolate coffins.

Alliteration is your friend!

you were twenty thousand leagues



Can't sleep. Never gonna sleep.

Started a new new piece today (the octopus) on handmade cotton paper and spending the night working on that as well as the salton sea piece (also on handmade cotton paper). It's 1:35am and I am exhausted but no hopes for sleep anytime soon. I think I may do a papermaking workshop in Tallahassee - especially using kudzu...it's invading our town!

Here is a picture from First Friday! And two (finally) finished pieces! I am working on my Etsy shop today so there will be updates soon! And I am a little sleep deprived and sick so I will be wrapped up in blankets on the couch, drinking copious amounts of coffee, and probably watching Hocus Pocus, Teen Witch, Monster Squad...etc etc. ...while working.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! And thank you to all my friends and to all the wonderful new people I met who came out last night!

First Friday;

This First Friday I am having a show with all my new work at a friend’s gallery space in Railroad Square. These are just sneak peaks of what I am working on. I have sooo much to do still! Hope to see all my friends there!

Oh and happy October! It has been so beautiful here in Tallahassee lately! I have been looking up (endlessly) bread recipes because I am going to do some serious baking this weekend! I want our whole home to smell like comfort, coffee, pumpkins, baked goods, fire, and friends.
