2011 in pictures: november

november is my favorite month! it contains my birthday AND my fave holiday. november is when i went to merry old England and met mr. smith’s family for the first time, and i can’t believe i STILL haven’t told you about that and shown you the pics yet. i’m saving them for […]

see you at Crafted!

HOORAY! it’s time again for Crafted: Handmade in the Hudson Valley. i’m leaving to set up at the lovely old church in a little bit, so i don’t have time to chat, but i hope you’ll come and see us if you’re in the area this weekend! it’s truly my favorite of any holiday sale […]

southern adirondack fiber festival

i’m sure that when some blogs are quiet, it means that there’s not a whole lot going on in the blogger’s life. for me though, the busier i get, the less activity you see here. i’m always trying to fix that, but it remains true… suffice to say, i’ve been a super-busy beaver since oh, […]

see you saturday!

fall festivals

suddenly, without any warning at all (i’m still trying to figure out that happened to August?) it’s that time of year again. for us makers, the busiest time! though it seems this whole year has been a whirlwind.

book review: design your own tees

i met Jen Cooke around 12 years ago, when i used to carry her hand-printed supremely colorful line of T-shirts, Raeburn Ink, in my shop in NYC. we’ve been friends ever since. i can still remember the very first group of tees she brought me; the prints were from the insides of security envelopes that […]

fair weather ahead

a little bird just flew past my ear and whispered “today is the second of September, you know!” and i told him to check his birdy calendar, because that’s just crazy, there is no way it could possibly be September already! it is only somewhere around early-to-middle of August, i am quite certain. although i […]
