shabby apple feature

Well shabby apple, approached me a few months ago about being featured on their blog. (who doesn’t love their gorgeous classy dresses) Anyway they wanted to highlight my domestic series as they were launching a new line of vintage inspired aprons. So I am there all week (4 part series), posting about why I got started in this series and what it means to me, and also some tasty little tidbits you might not know… so head on over and check it out. They are also running a pie baking contest in conjunction with my feature (winner gets 15 domestic cards and a 20x30” print of their choosing from the domestic series).

I am back—back from Utah, back from the segullah writers retreat, back in the studio, and back to my hectic pace of life…

Vaca recap-- I ate (lot of places- ruths diner, tin angel, cafe rio, fresh twist, red mango, malt shoppe, el azteca- need i continue?) I flew, I drove (fast –i might add thanks to the new black dodge charger the rental guy gave me), i shopped, i wrote, i laughed, i partied with family and friends, i museumed, i aquariumed, i movied, I dug (fossils), i hiked, i talked (alot), i played alumni, i created, i bonded, and i slept (a little)

What’s cooking? well I just found out an essay I wrote is going to be published next spring (so that means final rounds of editing!), about 10 new pieces in the works in the domestic series, an upcoming feature and giveaway on the shabby apple blog, a couple painting commissions, and drafting 2 new essays.

Now through all that in with summer fun, sugar cookie making, town beach, tennis camp, piano lessons, and mom life and you have a full plate.

stay tuned…
