Well it’s mother’s day. Mine is AWOL in Thailand, missed her return flight and who knows what she’s doing. But, it’s mother’s day. So here’s the portrait I did of her, and some photos from when she was young and beautiful. Also a totally wrong photo of her giving me iced coffee as a baby – don’t give the baby coffee!
Speaking of passion and glamour… here are a couple new ladies for your new year’s pleasure!
Another New Year’s resolution that I didn’t mention earlier is getting these up in my store… so look out for that! I swear it’s gonna happen!
I hope everyone had a safe and happy NYE last night, got buzzed (with or without the help of substances), made merry, spent joyous time with loved ones, and then made it home to be safely tucked up in bed. I had a lovely early dinner with a girl friend, then was home stitching and watching British mysteries by 9pm; fantastic!! Stayed up late working, got up super early in the new year, then passed back out for a few hours. Ahhh. Now, it’s mid-afternoon and I’m thinking about the year past and the one to come.
So many wonderful things happened in 2012! I had my first feature solo show and curated my first art event, became an artist in residence at the Hive and started selling my wares at Co-op 28, and showed in New York, Philadlephia, and a bunch of new, to me, galleries here in LA. Yay 2012! I also got some lovely press, made some amazing new friends, saw lots of art and theatre and music and beauty in my daily life, and met Amanda Fucking Palmer!
Looking forward, I’m very excited for 2013, there’s my second curated show – this February at the Hive, Stitch Fetish – the new series’ I’m working on (the doilies and a new project I haven’t quite unveiled yet), and plenty of group shows and ideas to keep me busy.
And now, the resolutions! In 2013 I resolve to:
find a bit more financial balance
see more art
spend more time laughing with loved ones
participate in more make out sessions
and finally, (my words to live by in 2013)
more mad passion and more passionate madness!
Happy 2013 all! May it be filled with wonder, joy, and abundance!

So much wonderful stuff went on this year! Flesh & Fiber, the Home Show, Fiber Philadelphia, Crazy for Cult NYC, starting to work with Co-Op 28, some nice online press… and there’s so much excitement to come in 2013! I’m really looking forward to Stitch Fetish, but more about that later.
Tomorrow I’ll do the whole “what I’m grateful for/what I want to do next year” post, but today, let’s just look at some wonderful old Hollywood NYE images. Hooray for the New Year!
Merry Christmas, lovelies!! Don’t eat too much!
Three very important things to tell you today. Let’s get going so we have time to cover everything. Pencils ready?
1. Tonight is the debut of my artist in residence wall at the Hive Gallery! Saturday openings there are always very fun, a big party, with art to boot! Come by and see my naughty snowflakes!!
Don’t you just love Thanksgiving? The crisp in the air, the pie, the time with friends and family, the pie, the reminder of our abundance and the chance to spend a day in gratitude, the pie… what’s not to love. I have so much to be grateful for this year and so much to be excited about in the year to come.
Thanks to all who support my work, me, buy the art, read the blog, come to the shows, send messages, all of it, all of it, all of it… Thank you.
Have a super happy Thanksgiving everybody. Eat yourselves silly, then go back for more. And remember to take home leftovers for a sandwich. xoxoxoxo
I am!! That’s right! Who’s house?? Run’s house!
Sorry, I get a bit excited.
So the deal is… my work is now available at Co-op28 on Vermont in Los Feliz, right here in Los Angeles! Woot! There’s some pillows:
and some cards:
and I’m sure more artsy-craftsy silliness will ensue and join them.
I took these shots yesterday when I dropped off, but will go back later in the week when it’s a bit more set up and take more, wonderfuler shots.
I’m very excited to be working with Co-op28, it’s a terrific business that champions handmade goods; woo hoo! They also have a small, but well chosen, selection of well priced vintage goods and clothes (I gots a fab new hat!).
More news to come in the next couple weeks… happenings at the Hive, sprucing up the online store, not to mention the website…. lots of goodness.
Have a super happy Thanksgiving everybody; Japanese turkeys say gobbu gobbu.
I get so busy, and every day I think, “wow, you need to post stuff…” and then I get swept up in the whirl of it all, again. So, let’s see, what have I been doing?
Last weekend I flew up to Berkeley, to see my gal Mel‘s son in Einstein on the Beach. Holy seminal wow!! What a piece of theatre! What a piece of art! I only wish I could see it a time or two more, to full absorb it; there was so much to take in over five hours.
L’Shana Tova! I hope everyone’s having a sweet and healthy new year so far. Eat a little apple with a bit of honey on it; that’s one of my favorite traditions to get up on the good foot.
I wanted to share this marvelously surreal take on Rosh Hashanah, sent to me by the wonderful and talented Mark Hanauer:
Sorry I haven’t posted anything much since I’m in NY, just really enjoying having some vacation time. Went to the beach a few days, been running around the city with pals eating pizza, heading back out to the beach this weekend, and then back to LA on Monday. It’s been great. Spending a bunch of time with my dad is (almost) always a pleasure.
Here’s some shots from the opening last Thursday. If you’re in town the show is up at 64 Gansevoort St through Sept 1, Wed-Sun.
