And So It Begins

A blog you say?! A forum in which to capture thoughts, ideas, and projects likely to be deemed uninteresting by most people except my mother?

Well it's happened folks. Something I thought I'd never do. I'm blogging. Right now. For reals.  

Why the change of heart?  

Well it all started when I found myself deciding to fully relocate my life from Brooklyn, NY to Louisville, KY. What began as a rock 'n' roll summer camp recording an album with my late band The Dead River Company, turned into a love affair with the landscape, the people and the thriving artistic community of Louisville. It also didn't hurt that I found the love of my life and that his mother just so happens to be an amazing local artist who has opened the door to countless opportunities for me. You should seriously check out her work.

I've always made stuff. From the time I was a girl of five years old in Wisconsin making clothing for my stuffed animals, I've never felt truly happy unless in the process of creating something. I was fortunate enough to have spent the last three years of my life earning a paycheck creating costumes for Broadway and film in the Big Apple, but I was subconsciously over stressed and creatively stifled. Being back in Middle America has brought not only a calm sense of well being, but a wave of creative inspiration I never knew I had.  

I'm hoping to use this blog as a place to share my new ideas and creations. I want to share things that inspire me and learn what inspires you. I want to make a contribution to the thriving DIY and crafting community that has exploded these past few years.  

So stick around a while.  Maybe we can learn something from one another.


  1. I am excited to see what you come up with!

  2. Thanks Amanda. I'm pretty excited to get things rolling. I didn't know you had a blog as well. Now I can check in on your wit and funny drawrings!
