Guess what! Right now I’m the featured seller on Etsy! (Squeal!) You can read my featured seller interview and see my studio space right here. I’m thankful, flattered, and trying not to hyperventilate! I think I’m going to be swamped with orders for a bit, so I’ll be away from the blog for a few [...]

Here are a few clips I shot around the house yesterday afternoon. I rented a Canon 7D to “test drive” for a few days. Although I decided that I’m not quite ready to upgrade my camera body yet, I sure loved having the ability to shoot video!
Here’s the recently repainted office! The walls used to be yellow and orange, but I think I prefer it when the items in the room are the focal point rather than the paint colors. So, I embraced my boring-paint-color-loving side and painted the room light gray. I like it about one million times better now (give [...]
Here are a few of my most recent sketchbook pages and the process behind my Valentine’s Day card designs. I’m pretty sure I have the sense of humor of a 9 year old boy…
Have you tried fabric markers yet? I finally got around to it, and they work great.

I chose Blurb to print my book, primarily because they provided a plugin for Adobe InDesign (rather than forcing me to use their limited design tools like [...]
We have a roof over our kitchen. Yes, you read that right—a roof. It’s one of the first things you see when you walk through our front door. I’ve never shown you the roof before, because it’s not necessarily my favorite part of our house. At first I hated the roof with every ounce of my being [...]
Daniel’s parents are missionaries, so he grew up in Zaire and Kenya (by the way, don’t ask him if he speaks “African” or if he rode an elephant to school—he gets mad). He saw firsthand the constant struggle many Africans faced just to acquire basic necessities like food and clean water. When he shares his [...]
Happy 2012 everybody! I’m glad I took last week off, because it gave me time to finish crossing everything off my Twelve by 2012 list! YES! I did it! (Well, I’m only half way through Anna Karenina, but technically my list only said to read it by 2012, not finish it, so I still get [...]
