  • Words, Words and More Words!

    I’ve done it again, creating a couple more word panels for all the feelings swirling around at the moment.  I decided to create them as 18″ x 27″ panels that you can order and get printed  directly through my Spoonflower shop! Yeehaw! Order the Linen Cotton Canvas Ultra substrate to ensure you get the entire […]

  • Parfait of Awesome with Fresh Spoonflower Sprinkles

    You know that moment when seemingly disparate parts of your world collide together ever so sweetly into a unifying eureka mash-up? Just nod if you have no idea what I’m on about. Sip some coffee. I’ll explain. Stay with me here. As a designer, I like to think I make clear, conscious decisions about the […]

  • Spoonflower Headquarters: An SK Tour

    I’ve only been obsessively designing and uploading my surface designs to Spoonflower for, oh you know, the better part of the last six years.  So when the opportunity arose last week to actually get my physical self to their North Carolina headquarters, I did just that. But wait. Before you think this post is going […]

  • A Little Debunking

    It has occurred to me on and off over time that some folks don’t quite understand aspects of what I do and what that all entails, so I thought I might attempt to shed some light on what the heck I do: I’m a mom: I used to work full-time and freelance onsite at many NYC […]

  • Happy New Year (Nine Days Later)

    Holy smokes, I feel so behind. I know, I know, we’re a mere 9 days into the new year but you know, that whole holiday – end-of-year – everyone’s schedule is upside-down thing takes a while to right itself sometimes. Plus I have a charming cold that decided to be the cherry on top of […]

  • Holiday Present Blocks! [aka A Wonky Cross Block Hack!]

    Tomorrow is the start of Winter Break and there’s less than a week til Christmas. Gah! One thing I have managed to (almost) finish in the St. Nick of time is this little fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants project I concocted the other week and was dead set on getting done before another year passed. It started with two […]

  • TDAT Shoutout (Right Back Atcha!)

    Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!  I was so tickled to see this recent e-shoutout from the lovely Nate and Salli over at They Draw and Travel… Ummmmmm, can I say a giant Y-E-S  P-L-E-A-S-E to a set of these cups? Seriously, somebody get on that stat, because I smell the perfect gift!!!!! Fine, I can give some to other people […]

  • What Prezzies are You Makin’?

    I know there are a slew of folks running around shopping their faces off today. I also know there are a slew of folks who are busy hand-making gifts today too. Like many people, I’ll be doing a combination of store-bought and handmade gifts (I will not, however, subject myself to crowds of mayhem, so […]

  • Remaking a Hat

    Yeah, so my morning began with being abruptly woken up by the shrill screams of betrayal and discontent. My blurry dry eyeballs adjusted to the trauma of sleep interruption and I walked like a zombie in an old-lady cardigan downstairs to find out what crime had been committed. Welcome to my morning. I arrived on […]
