So we're all caught up on Netflix with all our favorite shows. Dexter, Mad Men, Californication, Weeds and Breaking Bad. Man they are all SO good in such different ways. So we decided to start a new series... Sons of Anarchy. It's intense. Like make you almost have a panic attack intense. Anyone else watching it? We're still on Season 1, it's getting good!

One A Day

Robb & I have been doing one photo a day of us for years, so naturally it carries on for JG. But let's be honest, it's more like 158 photos a day of him...

Visual Life

One of my favorite blogs. So great to see what goes on behind the lens...

My Man Chuck

Oh how I love him...

“The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that’s almost never the case.”
- Chuck Close

Beckel Canvas Products

My sweet husband knows me all too well. I've been drooling over these bags ever since we moved to the SE. (Their shop is right up the street) So for my birthday this year I got the tote and ditty bag (or dopp kit, if you don't know my family's lingo). So great for the market, travel, beach, baby stuff and just everyday use! The handmade quality really shows and I just love the leather detailing. Good job baby!

You can buy them at Canoe

The Lately

We're doing all kinds of crazy stuff around here lately! Sitting up, swinging, highchairs in restaurants... The best one of all? Saying Dada. We're more in love than ever.

Holton Rower

Thanks to R I have a new favorite artist. Not too far off from the methods and materials that I use, yet so much more complex and fantastic than my paintings. Truly inspirational. Not to mention his sculpture... check him out here.

Mountain Getaway

Last weekend we grabbed some snowshoes & snowboards and headed up to Mt Hood for a little V-day getaway. Sun, snow, chili, hottubbin', corderoy & a great date on the hill with my Valentine. What more could a girl ask for?

Where the Sidewalk Ends

Speaking of fantastic drawings... One of R's favorite books growing up was Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein. I had never heard of it (the look of horror on his face), but it has quick become one of my favorites, as well as JG's. We try to read some of the tales to him every night and they always leave us with big smiles on our faces. His imagination and illustrations are so magnificent. Here is one of our favorites:

Hug O' War

I will not play at tug o' war
I'd rather play at hug o' war
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug
Where everyone kisses
And everyone grins
And everyone cuddles
And everyone wins.


Stumbled upon this local gal on Una's blog. What fantastic drawings...

Warby Parker

I am SO getting a pair of these. The 2 best things about them? 1. They are way cheap & B. For every pair you buy they donate a pair to someone in need. Rad right?

*ps- keep your paws off these frames, cuz I want 'em!
