A beautiful mess.
One night, we went to Kate & David’s home to eat bangers and mash and make cranberry-popcorn garlands and paper snowflakes. We read tarot cards, listened to old tunes, and had a wonderful time. At the end of the evening, there were popcorn crumbs, paper clippings, and bits of string all over the living room […]
I stayed up until 5:30 a.m. knitting this. I’m going to take a nap now.
I keep lots of journals. My favorites are my visual journals, which I fill with images, thoughts, poems, etc. from magazines, websites, cards, and whatever ephemera I can get my hands on. Here’s a peek at my most recent journal: It’s fun to look back on these and remember why I clipped a certain photo […]
The Surprise Ball
Edited to add: For all of you lovelies who are visiting from Abby’s fabulous blog, welcome! I hope you enjoy your visit. 🙂 So I saw this surprise ball and decided I had to make one of my own. And I decided to fill it with cute trinkets and a gift card and give it […]
Yay, we finally have Halloween photos to share! So just to give you some background, our friend Bud always does an elaborate costume for Halloween. This year he asked us to be a part of it, and our group grew and grew. Then a documentary filmmaker became interested in it, and so she filmed us […]
News from me

Happy (belated) Halloween everybody! Last night we went to a friend’s loft for a costume bash…lots of fun. Then of course we had to take a stroll down 6th street to check out the crazy costumes. There didn’t seem to be many original ones this year, though…probably because our friend Bud, who comes up with […]
My boss’s birthday was last week…I usually bake something yummy for office birthdays, but my boss has been adhering to a strict weight loss plan for a while now, and I didn’t want to tempt him with anything sweet. I still wanted to give him something homemade, so I crafted these wine charms for him. […]
Just look at this baby! Isn’t she fabulous? This is Freya, the daughter of my friends Courtney and Mark. She’s a little over two months old now, and she’s smiling, holding her head up, and generally looking cute. I started embroidering onesies for her a few weeks back, and I bought them a size too […]
Sending out cheer
This year, Justin and I decided to make our own Christmas cards. I don’t send cards out every year…some years Christmas sneaks up on me and is over before I know it, and most years we head to West Texas to be with parents and it seems there’s not enough time for holiday preparations. Since […]
