I’ve been playing around with calligraphy lately. Here are my first impressions and pros and cons of brush vs. nib calligraphy.
I’m linking up to Katie’s Marvelous in My Monday linkup party today. Click through to see what kind of things put Marvelous in other people’s Mondays. I hate Mondays. I know that’s cliché. But I really do. Especially right now. Today marks two weeks until Mark and I move (and he moves away!) and I’m […]
My junior (slash first senior year) of college I was seriously considering switching majors. I was no good at design. I consistently got Bs on projects and I wasn’t standing out of the crowd the way I wanted to (or the way my friend Stephanie Hertel still does — she is awesome). And when things […]
When I was moving, I uncovered these fabulous dishes I was working on back in 2009. I totally forgot about them, but am hoping to finish them before Craft Saturday on April 30. Except … I have no idea what to put in the ribbon on the hearts. There are 4 plates that need something […]

I’m preparing for my first ever craft show next weekend and I’m upcycling a buttload of vintage ceramics…fiestaware…pyrex…cornin gware, etc. Instead of sectioning them out, I decided to dump them all in one post. I hope you don’t mind. I’ll probably have another big post like this next week as well. I’ve got about 15-20 more […]
A while back I bought a buttload of dishware. I finally got around to making some things AND taking photos of them. I’m too lazy to repost everything since I just posted this all on etsy and craftster…so here’s some photos. ta. da.
