over the river and to the beach

For the past four years or so I’ve sent illustrated Christmas cards to friends, family and clients.  Last year I also made ecards, basically, adding snow and creating a gif then emailing or texting to the people that cheer me on throughout the year. Since we’ve moved to a new house I decided that I’d…

five favorites

Sharing some of my favorite things at the moment before I call it a day and go raid my craft stash to figure some type of DIY project I can “relax” with Saturday while my pup is getting his ear procedure done. As much as I try to love tea…I’m totally a coffee person. But…

cat fight

Long story short, I went to the ER last night for the first in a series of rabies vaccinations. Short story a little longer: I was bitten by I stray cat while walking Mac around the block. The cat went after my dog and I was caught in the middle. Once we escaped, with the…

here i am, with cake

Did everyone have a nice weekend? It was Easter weekend for those that celebrate. As usual, I hadn’t really planned on doing anything major for the holiday. After goofing off with Mac and the cat for most of the day on Saturday (photo evidence: instagram), I decided to make a bunny cake. It’s one box…

you make me smile

Be love, be lovely. Today, as I was leaving a grocery store parking lot, I stopped short of the sidewalk to let a man approaching on bicycle pass. It’s an extremely hot day. Sometimes, living here in Florida is like living on the surface of the sun. The man’s face was scrunched into a grimace…

it’s all good

Mac survived Fourth of July weekend! He cuddled up with me on the couch while I watched a few movies. No biggie. I haven’t posted many pictures of him on the blog lately, not since his surgery/recovery. I do post an “obscene amount” of pet pictures on my instagram and facebook, though. I realize this…

Trepuntozero civette sul comò

  Trepuntozero civette sul comò, that means “Threedotzero little owls on the dresser” This shop has been on my radar for a couple months. ADORABLE. I love the Jackalope to pieces! Pretty much anything tiny and felt and freakishly adorkable is going to get my vote. But, hey… I’m socially and politically conscientious that way.…

cat-snaps

I’m posting so many cat-relating things lately, I’m not turning into a cat person… I swear. When I got the kitten, I truly had forgotten what it was like to have such a nimble and curious creature tumbling about the house. My older cat is basically furniture. Misha frequently perches himself on my desk and…

i want to hold your hand

illustration by Jessica Borutski On my way to work this morning I saw the cutest senior couple walking together hand in hand. Then I wondered to myself, “When was the last time I did something like that?” I can’t remember when that was. I chalked it up to my “independence”. I’m just not a hand…
