I was having a high anxiety day, so I decided to step away from the computer and get out my watercolors. I started painting clothing for a flyer for Wilder Goods and I couldn’t stop, it evolved into these paper dolls. It unleashed the clothing designer spirit in me. I wanted to share with you all because it’s a really fun and easy project to do with kids, or for yourself.
Lately, my morning ritual is to drink my coffee outside, facing the rising sun while reading poetry, writing and sitting in silence. Well, mostly silent—Ember is usually there with me. She sits beside me in her little blue rocking chair, even her toddler self seams to relax into the moment and she enjoys a good poem now and again. Makes my heart sing. I think her favorite is Mary Oliver. I look forward to this time more than anything and find that
These cards were created out of a shared love and deep reverence for wildlife, especially the animals we share our land with. All proceeds will go to wildlife protection. We will be focusing on local efforts to protect wild bison, wolves, bears, elk, or any wild animal that needs support and attention.

This mix is inspired by a dream I recently had which carried the full weight of the hurt we’ve caused Mother Earth and ourselves due to the disconnection from her and a sense of oneness. Sometimes I feel like our dreams allow us to feel the full breadth of our emotions and situations when it’s too much in waking life. Climate change is a huge emotional burden to take on and it’s overwhelming and hard to know what to do—I
A friend recently told me she heard my name on a podcast and being the podcast freak that I am, I got really excited. Turns out, the podcast was an interview with Susan Connor and she briefly spoke about our collaboration ‘Art on Denim‘ – a collection of vintage denim picked by me and printed by Susan. I so enjoyed the podcast and became an instant fan of Rita and The American Edit. I’m always looking for new podcasts and Why
‘ I think again over my small adventures My fears, Those small ones that seemed so big, For all the vital things I had to get and reach. And yet, there is only one great thing, The only thing, To live to see the great day that dawns And the light that fills the world. ‘ – From an Inuit song. Sent to me at the most auspicious time from a dear friend. Happy Winter Solstice everyone!
“For me living is the same thing as dying, and loving is the same thing as losing, and this does not make me a madwoman; I believe it can make me better at living, and better at loving, and just possibly, better at seeing.” – Sally Mann First off, I need to thank my dearest Bethany for introducing me to Sally Mann and her book, “Hold Still”. This book touched me deeply and I loved every minute
Amazing artwork by: Andreas Lie (You can purchase very affordable prints here.) WHO WILL SPEAK? by: Linda Hogan If all the animals came from the hills, if all the fish came from the rivers, and all the birds came down from the sky we would know our lives, small, somewhere between the mountain and the ant. We would see what we do pass by and return around Earth’s curve. All I know are these rivers, and the air and
I’ve been feeling really, really burnt-out lately. I’ve been working like a dog and not seeing much payoff. Being a one-woman operation can be exhausting. Don’t get me wrong, I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to live my dream, express my vision. I know in my heart that I’ve found my true path, now I worry that I can’t sustain it. Last night I had a dream I was a part of this amazing creative studio. The energy
So this is exciting. Susan and I have been working on this collection for a few months now and we’re over the moon with excitement to finally be sharing it – a collection of carefully selected vintage denim hand printed by artist Susan Connor. The project is a symbiotic combination of my vision for a relaxed, grounded lifestyle and Susan’s focus on American-made wares that are easy on the planet.
