Studio time..
Lots of gray dreary days make for good working time in the studio. This little guy has been keeping me company too. I like to grab a cup of coffee, turn on the twinkle lights, and watch the sun come up. Chipping away on the master weaving homework. Thinking...

Part 2: Bucket list..
Hiking has always been a favorite thing to do. Some of earliest memories are hiking and camping with my parents: the orange tent, squeeze cheese in a can, sun streaming through the trees, my mother's red bandana. Hiking biographies are a fave and at this po...
