*that my husband is flexible and doesn’t mind dirty water and paintbrushes in the kitchen, in the dining room, and everywhere else
*totally digging this ny times article
about the ups + downs of making a living at art + crafts. i related to just about every single sentence in this article esp the parts about the post office, the spreading of the business into every room of the house, the long hours, and the loving every minute of it.
*speaking of business, we’re dreaming up new ideas of 2011 (i know, so far away), but i’m totally digging the R + D process 🙂
*really loving this photo of me and mati
taken last week by the talented susannah conway
. love, love, love it!
*digging the So You Think You Can Dance shows – so glad Russell won!
*loving courtney’s post
about finding the creative spark – and the first comment/commenter made me chuckle because it’s so true!
*loving all the last minute orders coming in from men – lovely + perfect.
*digging that jenny doh is starting what will be an ART SAVES movement
. i’m so inspired by her right now (watch the whole video…you won’t be sorry) and our shared love of social work (she was/is a social worker, too!) and the power of art.
*that one of my biggest inspirations, rachel ashwell, now has a blog
! (thank you, sfgirlbybay
, for that information!)
*digging that my sister is totally on fire – she’s found her passion and making the dream come true
. it’s seriously amazing to watch and reminds me of those early days when i thought i was going to explode with possibility.
*twitter – i think i’m getting the hang of it over there
. the trick is not to spend hours reading all the tweets and just tweet, tweet, your heart out. it’s sort of fun.
ps-for you last minute shoppers: we’re shipping out everyday and we’re shipping everything PRIORITY MAIL (2-3 days). i’ve got just a couple wall canvases
(perfect for book clubbers) left, but plenty of necklaces
and matted/signed prints!
woohoooo – yay for holiday gift giving 🙂
