The Impermanence of Art

I came across this post the other day about the coffee art of a particular barista and it got me to thinking about all the impermanent art we experience. And I was thinking do we really appreciate how ephemeral so much art can be and does it even matter as long as we are experiencing … read more

Visions and a Roadtrip

I recently went to Baltimore on a C3 field trip. C3 is what we call our small women’s art and craft collective of 5 or so members.

Prepare for the new year

With the new year fast approaching, I need a 2013 calendar. I guess I don’t need a calendar, I do have a phone that tells me the date, but I do enjoy having a art calendar in the kitchen that I can glance at every morning. It sort of helps start my day in a … read more

The Origin of Buttons

Remember last week when I shared the buttons that peeps sent me? Well, here’s what I did with them. Not all of them, of course, but this is only my first button project.  I think it turned out really well and I’m quite pleased with it. I’m calling it “The Origin of Buttons” and I’m … read more
