this happened today

Today I joined instagram (you CAN do it without a smart phone!) I cleared some boxes of fabric from around my desk. And then i recorded this 15 second dance clip to win a spot in a mentorship program with the ever stylish Hilary Rushford of Dean Street Society. It's funny what you can rationalize as business when you are a creative entrepreneur.
and now you can follow me on instagram. Instagram
Like this clip and have your own micro mini dance break with me.

midwinter break

Last week I was given a real lemon, picked fresh from someone's tree and mailed to my friend John. All that morning I just held it in my hands, precious globe of citrus sunshine and sniffed it. At my kitchen table I had to paint it and one of my tiny glass jars with snow drops from my backyard, a page of midwinter hope and small delights.

Now at the Bureau of Historic Investigation

I made a new collection of key rings for the Bureau of Historic Investigation this week. My classic keys and feathers in a pallet inspired by painted ladies and old photographs.  Their shop is such a well curated collection of items local, historic and sassy. I am super excited to be sharing my goods with their loyal fans. Check out their website for a taste of their wit and style and pop in next time you are in downtown Bellingham.

Art Walk FRiday Night 6-10pm

I've been in the mood for sweetness, stitching in the studio and printing cards at the kitchen table.
I think handmade valentines are the best. But if you are feeling a little overwhelmed or under the weather this February, let my hands be the ones that make yours this year.

All these goodies and more are available in our studio Friday Night at the Art Walk, 6-10pm.
Come upstairs to the Pickford Dreamspace studios, 1318 Bay Street in downtown Bellingham for a sweet piece of handmade love.

scraptastic color pop!

Last Saturday we gathered at the Ragfinery for a Scraptastic Color Pop workshop.

We made yo-yo pins and pom-pom garlands to add color to the cold winter grey.  Everyone was excited to practice these basic hand sewing techniques with infinite possibilities.
 Angela, who makes hats as Humperdinck, took the basic yo-yo concept and went wild.
Barbara ditched the heart for a robot on her pin.
