What's going on here?

Writing about all the things I love.

Music, Food, & Printmaking

Music, food, and printmaking. If I could choose three words that described the majority of what makes up my life these days, those would rank pretty close to the top. What I didn't know until recently is that they're three words that also describe the majority of what...

It’s only been two years (and some…)

First of all, I want to state for the record that 2017 has been crazy so far between work and the house and art. Balance and time management are the trickiest things, and at some point I will write something about the planner/calendar that helps keep me at least...

Time for Dirt!

I readily admit to not being much of an "outdoors person". Oh sure, when the weather is nice, I like to open the doors and windows to get a good cross-breeze going, but as for actually spending time outside? Most of the time I'd rather go to a movie. I used to spend a...

And thus begins another season

This will be my third year doing art fairs! It doesn't seem like it's been that long, but the calendar doesn't like. (At least I don't think it does. Sneaky calendar!) As I'm lining up my applications, it looks like I'm going to be at a lot of the same fairs as last...

Smallest Room in the House

Yellow. And black. Plastic. Tiles. And a shower chair. That has been used by someone that isn't you. Just let that sink in for a second. Try to picture it in your mind. No, it's not gross enough, try again. Closer, but not quite. Yes, there. Gross, isn't it? That was...

A kitchen re-done

When I think kitchen renovation, I think expensive. I think 5 figures worth of expensive, because I watch HGTV, where they habitually gut and completely redo kitchens with the highest of high end finishes. And yes, there are plenty of kitchen renovations that are that...

Looking back to move forward

So it's almost 2015. "Almost" as in about an hour and a half away. That seems very weird to think about. I know I can't be the only one that's finding that weird to think about, right? I don't know that it's the natural progression of time that I find strange so much...

Adult Life Goals – Real Estate Edition

Best intentions to update apparently have gone well awry during the second half of this year. But there's an explanation for that! (There always is, isn't there? But I mean it this time!) As most everyone in my personal life knows, I bought a house this summer!!!...

Selling and Loss (and Gale Force Winds)

What's that you say? It's been forever since I updated this blog? AGAIN??? I know, I know. But now that I'm here, I'm going to tell you a story about outdoor art fairs. Gather 'round. I've had three fairs so far this year, and other than the first, they've all been...

Updated Calendar!

Hello, hello! A quick post to say thank you to the people that have come out to my first few shows this year! I shouldn't even say anything because I might jinx it, but my first two outdoor fairs have had some fantastic weather! Though I'm nursing a pretty wicked...

A New Season

Well even though winter keeps clinging onto us here in Wisconsin (I'm ready for it to make its exit!), it's time for my season of art fairs to start up again. This will be my second year doing fairs, and I'm hoping that it'll be even better than last year. I have a...

Construction Time!

I am currently in the process of moving my domain registration and hosting to a new company, so if you see anything funky going on here, that’s why. I’m hoping to have this all settled in less than a week, but we’ll see how it goes. I will admit to not being the most...
