say cheese

February 23, 2011

it’s no secret that i could probably survive on cheese alone.
when i was living in paris it was not uncommon to find upwards of three different kinds of cheese in my apartment at any given time… and i lived alone.

so wouldn’t it be great to learn how to make upwards of three different kinds of cheese at home?

i agree.

a snowy success!

February 22, 2011

we found snow.  in fact, we found a lot of snow.  a lot of beautiful snow.

heading up to lake tahoe this weekend in search of some muted colors…
and  maybe a little sledding too.

a familiar orange octopus

February 13, 2011

when i saw this illustration by amber alexander, i recognized the octopus immediately!  you can’t tell me that it’s not the same one i had the pleasure of meeting at the oregon aquarium back in september.
it simply must be the same one.
no question about it.


check out more work by amber alexander.
