remember when mati and painted this painting together and i promised i’d post the video of us painting it in progress once i was able to get over my technical difficulties? the truth is is that i never got over my technical difficulties, but thank god for matt passmore. matt, thanks so much for taking our 1.5 hours of video and time lapsing it down to just over 3 minutes. we are so appreciative. please excuse the cheezed out music, the plethora of bootie cracks, not the best positioning, and bad lighting toward the end. it was our first try with video, and even with all the mistakes, i still love it. mati and i are hoping to do several more collabs together…can’t wait for that (and the videos)
speaking of mati, check out her giveaway and ginormous etsy sale going on this week!

i wanted to thank the folks over at Studios for including my creative space in their current issue on stands now (isn’t that a stunning cover?)! this issue is packed with great spaces, including a nice photo spread of tim holtz’s studio (i’m a huge fan). but what is most meaningful and special about this particular issue is that my sister, jennifer valentine, has a special and unique piece of art that is featured (with a how-to article). so fun to be together inside the pages of such a great magazine 🙂

one last thing….special thanks to new seattle friend kelli for the lovely write up (i blushed) over at fierce + nerdy (loving that site name). kelli also created a fan page for me over on facebook. i’m feeling a bit shy about that one, but if you’d like to become a fan, then head on over here
stay tuned, a special announcement in the next day or so 🙂

Hello, tenderness.

  For as long as I've been making art and telling my stories online (circa 2006!), it's been important to me to tell them honestly. I have a strong value on being brave in times of celebration (not playing small, dimming my/your light) as well as being brave in...
