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!

Radio Silence

Ok, so I've been a REALLY bad blogger lately. But I'm SO SO sorry and I promise from now on I'll be making it up to you BIG time! Does this super duper cute photo of my beautiful baby make it all better? Thought so... Ok let's get back to it!
