seek magic, every day

File this under: Things I do when I should be sleeping. My first thought was to put together a set of Spring postcards, and I couldn’t decide on the colors… naturally, I did all the colors. Then I ended up animating the color shifts, and adding music… because I’m insane. Enjoy! click here to download…

new day

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety. Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and…

the sparklies

Just a few short weeks ago I ordered myself this ring from Feather Oak and have been checking every day since for a delivery date! I’m usually not very spendy when it comes to jewelry because…if the tangled ball of bracelets and necklaces that live in my top dresser drawer are any indication…I don’t take…

snoozles (happy friday)

Another adorable picture for you of my brother’s new puppy. This little Twoodle is completely crashed out under what I can only guess is “the coolest fricking coffee table in the history of ever”. It’s like, made out of an actual tree, you guys. My big brother, Joe, lives way up north in New York.…

take a walk

Mac and I made our way over to the park yesterday. He had never been there before and he was so excited! There was actual GRASS, and it was GREEN! The weather was a bit overcast and there was a slight breeze. Mac sniffed EVERYTHING (twice) and after he was sufficiently wore out we made…

pretty on the inside

I found a tiny cocoon today just outside the doorway of my best friend’s house. At first I didn’t know what it was. Then, as I peeked around to the other side (on tippy toes), I saw the familiar wing of a monarch butterfly. I’ve never seen this kind of thing in person before and…
