I can honestly say 2010 was one of the best years of my life! It had its ups & downs, of course, but the overall trend was toward the wonderful.
Some highlights of this year in no particular order were: visiting the giant redwoods, discovering Broder, meeting lovely & amazing people, making preserved lemons, getting my work published in magazines, discovering pink apples, falling in love, having shows to work for constantly, Little Winter, swimming at Trillium Lake, & running away to the coast with Sarah. There were so many late nights with friends, drinking champagne and laughing, music, & delicious food, adventures, & pretty much everything I could want from a year!
In a few days I’m going to be getting on a train to go back to Portland, so I’m wishing you happy, healthy, and productive New Year! I can’t wait to see what 2011 holds!

Work wise this has been a fantastic year! The best ever actually and I feel so lucky and grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way. Well, I’ve been lucky yes, but I’ve also worked harder than ever before and it has paid off. So now I’m thinking about goals and ideas for the upcoming year, and what I’d like to accomplish, which is always fun. Here are some goals for this 2011:
In general I’d like to do things more purposefully. I’d like to have actual goals for each week/month rather than vague goals.
I’d like to collaborate with a ceramicist, jeweler, textile artist, letterpress printer, or filmmaker.
I’d like to design a logo and/or label for a tea company. (specific I know, I just think it would be fun)
I want to peruse illustrations jobs.
I need to buy a new computer and I'd like to get a new camera.
I'd really like to have more two or three person shows.
I'd like to really figure out and refine the retail part of my business and decided how much a priority I'd like it to be.
...I'll probably be adding to this list in the coming weeks.

Sorry for the sort of short notice, but I wanted to let you know that the last day you'll be able to order anything form my shop will be this Thursday, December 16!!
I'm leaving on Friday for my family's house in Michigan where I'm not even going to think about work for two weeks! I've been feeling seriously burnt out for a few weeks now, I can't wait be home where I can just bake cookies, decorate a tree, and relax!
