glimmers in our hearts

hello there muffins,

(my friend kate called me muffin on the phone tonight and i thought it so cute. so now i will call all of you that too.)

i'm feeling excited by a lot of things tonight! i take off tomorrow morning for beloved New Mexico:) i cannot wait! to see my darling college roomie jessie, more friends, georgia o's ghost, green chiles, a hot tub soak, a massage maybe? reading. plane magazines. art. did i mention hugh & i applied for a joint show at the Harwood Art Center in Albuquerque that is happening January 2009? so now it's a business trip too to check out the space and plan our show. this is an amazing venue that i went to over 8 years ago and thought... wow, i want to be an artist, and now i'm having a show there. a full circle dream come true.

OK, something i am very very very excited about is this collaboration between one of my favorite online peeps: moodswing + matirose= true love indeed
tiny suspect
this is just a teaser... more soon!

let's see i also wanted to THANK all of you amazing bloggers for putting the word out about our Italy adventure:) In particular some of my favorite design blogs: Modish, Design for Mankind, Poppytalk and my girly show tribe: Sparkletopia, Marisa, Outi, Boho and Christine So excited that several people are signing up! We need a total of 12 participants to make it a go, so please pass the word out on this once in a lifetime journey!

and last, but not least, i want to give a shout out to the lovely Jenifer of Sprout Studios for hosting a bunch of us blogger girls over for dinner in her awesome live/work loft. so fun! Here are the rings Jenifer made us... necklaces too! I also recently did an amazing trade of art for a skateboard based on Jenifer's silkscreen! LOVE it.

Have lovely weeks all!

Just found you via San Meridith.

You lucky dog, Italy !!!!!!!!!

I'm in Rio Rancho, just south of Santa Fe.

Nice to find you. Wonderful art.

I love the idea of being called "muffin". My grandmother called me "Dolly". I've always loved tender nicknames.
