Finding Gifts: A Jackalope

I just started using an old camera of mine (here‘s why) and I found these pics of a crazy Christmas gift I made my brother this past year.

We have a thing for the mythical, magical Jackalope, thanks to a memorable wild west roadtrip we took in our 20s, and our love of the movie Watership Down. It seemed only natural to carve him a Hazelesque Jackalope complete with Christmas Flair. Maybe I'll inspire some folks for the holidays this year. Ha.

The Summer of Sweeping Changes: Stella

My love and I decided in May that it was going to be The Summer of Sweeping Changes. So this Independence Day, we bought our new baby, Stella—a 1968 Shasta LoFlyte. Giggity. Thanks to my dear friend, Sage for sending me the Craigslist link just in the nick of time.

It’s bright.

I made a window shade for the patio door out of an old sack.

The Polaroid Project: Bedroom Wall

So much of my time lately has gone to my plant-based recipes and resources website, YumUniverse and a new online publication called YEP. It’s an exciting time, but a busy one.

This last month, I have been making a big effort to organize, spring clean and take care of projects I’ve been wanting to get through, like setting up my Windowfarm (still in progress). What’s great about making time to organize and catch up is that projects create themselves along the way. Purging the office closet can sometimes lead to a whole new bedroom wall made out of treasured polaroids. They deserve to be on the wall, not stacked in a box.

My talented friend, Marta and I collaborated on these shots taken on a recent roadtrip to Nashville. I made the headress and she took the shots. Fun.

Cleaning the Closet

Cleaning the closet out can be fun. Look what I found today. Yes, I’ve painted a mini velvet Elvis or two in my life.

YumUniverse™: Soft Launch

Psst! This is where I have been spending most of my time the past eight months—the YumUniverse. Last Tuesday, I soft-launched my new website resource for dairy-free, meat-free, soy-free and mostly gluten-free livin’. What a colossal amount of work. We are now planning our launch party, which should be locked down any day now and once that date/locale are determined, we will make the official launch announcement. Until then friends, come by and say “hello”.

We have 50+ recipes so far, tons of resources, a shop, glossaries—everything to make a healthy diet that much easier.

Read about why I started this site. And also read about our talented and varied group of contributors.

Try some of our recipes...

and learn how to prepare unique ingredients...

Whatever you dive into, let us know what you think and what you’d like to see on YumUniverse. That’s what it’s there for!
