2014 Week 27 of Making Something Every Day

I like this week especially because you get to see nearly every single step, from start to finish, of my making process. I don’t have very many weeks where that happens so handily. Also, I like this week because I finished a piece at the end of the previous week and sold it. I finished […]

2014 Weeks 21 & 22 of Making Something Every Day

The past two weeks have been a lot of travel and a good deal of sadness. And laughter. And joy at reconnecting with family. My maternal grandmother passed away, leaving me at 41, with no living grandparents. While I didn’t have much contact with any of my grandparents once I left for college, they filled […]

Week 20 of Making Something Every Day

Day 135: Pacific, 12×12.” For Sale: $50.
