be kind, rewind...

Moving gives you the distance to take stock of things. Your friends are there but not within reach of an easy coffee each week. You have to rewind on your own and continue "to do what you love more than you love yourself" (thank you Elizabeth Gilbert).  

I have been thinking a lot about social media and how to best use it to learn and to connect and to this end, I have been talking to people about blogs and listening to podcasts about blogs and reading and reading and reading about blogs. All suggest that your blog is the engine of your work as a(n) _______. It is a place to share the content behind who you are and what you are interested in with anyone who will listen.

So....wait for it...

The blog is back and I am plan to post every two weeks on a Friday. I will stop posting on my crafty blog, and consolidate content with is a lot of overlap anyway. 

My first post on May 1st will be about a floor installation that I am working on. I will tap into Sol Lewitt and 70's decorating magazines. 

Let me know what you think, send your inspirations and ideas. By following, you can let me know that you like what you are seeing and reading..

Happy Spring!


Thank you for the lovely feature Brett! Everyone check out Brett's new site called The Brettorium Creativity Emporium. He travels the internet trying to find artists and designers whose work he love, love, loves but who may have not received a ton of recognition for their work. He also takes really wonderful photos.


check out this vinyl decal from lunule designed by the talented susan rowe harrison:


i think wall decals are a great way to decorate a child’s room. these are maroon and come in a set of 3. the elephant stands proudly at 5 1/2 inches wide by 6 inches high. put them on a wall, or to customize furniture, trash can, book jacket, or on mat board to frame. what a great idea. when you get a chance, make sure to travel through susan’s collection. isn’t she amazing?

So, thank you Brett.

URBAN HIEROGLYPHICS; Hinting at the Hint of a Story
By Dana Jennings
Published: February 24, 2002

They are like so many messages let out of the bottle. Crumbs of paper, accidental graffiti, escaped from purses, notepads and windshield wipers. They swirl in the wind, nip at our heels, curl into dark corners. Harried objects of the moment, printed and in script, evoking the licked tip of a yellow, No. 2 pencil, Bic-stained fingers. They become cryptic scraps, hinting at the hint of a story. Certainly not the opening lines of any tale, but a clause leaked from the middle: the visual equivalent of overheard whispers. And, finally, they feel human, fragile, cultural connective tissue. As the poet Charles Simic says, ''The ephemeral is eternal.''
