Little Miss Sunshine


I finally saw Little MIss Sunshine last night, and I think it was one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen. I absolutely loved it! Ryan was a little bit wary of seeing it with me (because he says he doesn’t like my choice in movies…I don’t believe him…), but he ended up loving it, too. We were both cracking up by the end.
It makes me wonder if anyone has a “normal” family, and if that would be a really boring life anyway. Or, I guess maybe a crazy family IS normal to those actually IN the family. Or maybe not. Thank goodness we don’t have to live with our families forever. I love mine dearly, of course, but my life is much more calm living in a different house!
But it’s nice to know that crazy families are out there and it’s not just mine…

see the movie!

little paintings


it’s another gorgeous sunny day here in boulder, colorado, and i am spending my morning organizing gallery contact information. ugh. it’s the gruntwork that gets so tedious sometimes.

these are two paintings of mine called “japan” and “snowflake.” they’re 12×12″ and part of my new series of fun glittery work!

happy wednesday…

new and improved blogging

well, i’ve decided to update my blog and make it a little more all-inclusive of the things i’m currently obsessing over and in love with. a short list to begin with:

*glitter glitter glitter!
*gorgeous hand-printed paper
*fall weather and halloween costumes
*trail running
(yes, i’ve taken to running. hard for those who know me to believe!)
*late afternoon sunlight
*waking up at 6am to write and drink coffee in my living room
*screen printing
*making kombucha (have you tried it?)
*making frames
*striped scarves
*beginning the winter knitting extravaganza!
*fall cooking (think squash pies and roasted beets…)
*crimped hair!! fun fun fun
*watching little kids
*skirts and boots
*my boyfriend ryan (heart heart)

i know there’s more, but i think that’s enough for now.

this is a photo of a little boy on pearl street, in boulder (where i live), and i just thought he was cute in his canycane striped hat. i used to sit on that snail when i was little– it was gorgeous outside today , and i had a sentimental moment. sometimes i miss being little and unjaded. this is my challenge to myself: to learn to live in that innocence and joy again. i feel it more and more every day, and i feel so blessed.

i am RECOMMITTING to my blog. daily posts are in my future, because i want to open my eyes more to all that’s around me!!

more tomorrow!
