Nothing but the warmest gratitude from the depths of my heart.
I’ve been practicing my brush lettering.
Taking phrase suggestions if you’ve got ’em.
Keeping on with the irreverence, this gif cracks me up.
If you follow my Instagram feed you saw that the other day I broke out the RIT dye to spruce up a white slipcover and some blah pillowcases within my immediate craft trajectory.
I dyed the pillowcases orange and then dip-dyed them and the slipcover with a deeper orange.
I’m so pleased with how everything turned out, especially the pillowcases. Maybe it’s just Spring enacting it’s magic on me but the combination of oranges and our blue bedspread feels tropical and that makes me happy.

I am in no way affiliated with Jack Daniels or Brooklyn Magazine but I wanted to share the animation contest that they’re having because it is so great. It combines two of my favorite things, which are funny stories (told from the perspectives of 8 different bartenders) and animation!
These 8 great videos are in the running. The winning bartender will get to tour the Jack Daniels distillery in Lynchburg, TN (WHAT ABOUT THE ANIMATORS?!).
