printmaking season!

this time of year there is so much printmaking going on! my favorite new design lately has to be these pickles. they are a nod to my old friend (and project), the nomadic pickle. thanks for digging them as much as me!

a summer of water

when you live in michigan, there is no reason to travel elsewhere during the summer. especially if you just want to be around the great lakes and pure michigan. if you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you, you just might land in marquette, pictured rocks, tahquamenon, leelanau, sleeping bear dunes, and beyond. thank you, michigan, for being so easy and beautiful.

embrace the weird

i do enjoy the weird, the strange, the things with bright colors and strange words that make you look twice and think three times. i like seeing things that others don't see or understand.

craft-a-way-camp

oh yeah! another year of a supremely wonderful time at the annual craft-a-way camp. i am so super grateful to have fallen into this group of fabulous humans.
this year again featured a great line-up of workshops. i taught a jewelry workshop where we made tiny twig wrapped necklaces. i love the one i made and it was great to see what the campers came up with. i will for sure be making more of them. we also had workshops featuring: block printing, peg board cross-stitch, watercolor painting, basket embellishment, and felt pinecones.

each summer we gather in the woods to get away from it all, put down the phones and sign off social media to get closer to one another and the nature around us. we have a forever camp bond that is utterly magical and wonderful. sincere looks and secret handshakes. high-fives and hoorays for stellar craft skills. vegan potlucks and campfire sing-a-longs. it's hard to capture in words or images, because it's a feeling that jolts into your veins and goes straight to your heart.
crafting by day
crafting by night
we did a lot of crafting
vegan potluck time! 
block printing in the great out doors! shut up. 
yeah, we're happy campers. 
i can't wait to do it all again next year! a huge thank you goes to amy and ethan of small craft and craft-a-way camp for being awesome and gathering us in this crafty revolution.
