I was busy this weekend! I built myself a workbench in the garage out of free pallet wood. Then I made a new pair of earrings on that workbench. It turns out it’s waaaay more comfortable to work there than the stump I had previously been using as a surface. Who would have guessed? I […]
Here’s what I’ve been up to lately, via Instagram. Left: This afternoon’s adventures in leather dyeing. Will share more about this soon! Right: My antique mall purchases. Vandalism here often takes creative forms. Left: Getting into the holiday spirit by ….being served burgers by a snowman? Right: It’s true! Sometimes it’s necessary to match your […]
Had a super busy weekend, which included watching the Perseid meteor shower (it was GORGEOUS!), visiting the Portland Zine Symposium, watching Plan 9 From Outer Space in a park with live music and acting (super funny), brunch, baking, sewing, and visiting the Alberta Street Fair.

(Top two from March 20110 Vogue, last three from Free People.) Wishing I had a pony or a goat to wrap in pretty colors for spring. Not sure putting jewelry on my cats would have the same effect.
For the past week I’ve been in Arizona, looking after my 82-year-old grandmother after she had a fall. She’ll be okay, and she’s already much better. But since she lives by herself in a pretty isolated location, my family asked if I’d go help her. I enjoyed spending time with her, and I certainly didn’t […]
