I finally opened a storenvy store! It went live last week and I have loved watching emails pop up saying.. "You've made a sale!" It brings me so much joy to know that I can create things people love! I opened the store in hopes to make a little extra money to pay for our adoption, so the products offered are African and adoption inspired. I am blessed to have an amazing support system and a lot of the sales have been from friends and family. I hope that this can eventually go further than that. I guess we'll just have to see where it takes me.

Go take a look! (starting small. only 2 products :)

We had a lot of fun putting this Album art together. It's great working with Aaron because he knows what he wants and he has great ideas! The EP is called Ghostly and he wanted a very straight forward picture of himself in a white shirt and all white background. I was so inspired by that idea! So subtle and sophisticated. The challenge was to figure out a way to photograph him and make it look professional with my 6-year-old digital camera. Ha! I knew natural light was the key and with some experimenting we figured out he needed to have good light shining on his face and diffused light coming through behind him. So... I had an idea!! We have some great natural light that comes through our bathroom window in the afternoon AND we have a white shower curtain... perfect for diffusing light behind him and giving him a glowy white background. You would never guess that this photo was taken with me standing in the bathtub while Aaron awkwardly squats so that the top of the shower curtain doesn't show. ha!! After working with a lot of different directions we both thought this offset look was the way to go. Hope you like it and hope you get a copy of the EP. Out October 12th!

...just a classic case of being in the right place at the right time. I am very excited and so proud to be working for a company that has been helping people connect for over 100 years! See the article here.

With some inspiration from Laura, I headed out to a couple thrift stores to find something I could use to organize my jewelry. I found this little gem on my first stop for ONE DOLLAR! I'm not totally sure what it is... maybe something to do with wine storage. All I had to do was clean it up a little and take off the top piece... and voila! Look here to see what else I found...

Most of you know, we started the adoption process about a month ago and Aaron and I have been brainstorming different ways to make a little extra money to help pay for the adoption. We're requesting a boy and we want to name him Arthur, but we've already been calling him "Little Art". These are some ideas I've been playing around with for letterpress prints. What do you think?

Some things I've been working on with my letterpress.

Mostly gifts for friends and family. I still feel like I'm learning and trying things out. Carving with the linoleum blocks is working great and every now and then I'll find some awesome letters that aren't super expensive.

My husband wrote released a new single, "Got a lot to Give". If you purchase the song on his BandCamp site all proceeds go to REAL HOPE FOR HAITI, a rescue center that is intentional in its efforts to improve the quality of life for malnourished children in Haiti, especially in the current crisis.

You can pay what you want for the song, but know that whatever you give is helping so many desperate people in Haiti that really need all the help they can get!
