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.
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.
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.
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”.
All things inspiring: stories, art, photography, design, food, music, travel, dance, fashion, you name it. I am involved in and am inspired by so many creative things and this is where I can put it all. Enjoy.
