Vegan Sourdough Pancakes

I made a sourdough starter a few weeks ago, and so far I have made one loaf of bread that didn’t rise very high, some sourdough waffles, and some sourdough biscuits. I’ve kind of neglected it in the fridge, so I need to feed it a little more often this week and leave it out […]

She’s here!

My beautiful baby daughter is finally here! It’s awesome being a mother, and Daniel is a really great dad. We’re so happy that Allelia is now a part of our lives. I’ve got a few moments of quiet while she’s napping, so I’d like to share my birth story! I went into labor around midnight […]

Tea Caddy from Recycled Cardboard

This morning after brunch I was overcome with the urge to clear out my tea cupboard and organize it. People who have had a cup of tea when they’ve come over to my house know very well that I have an overwhelming number of tea choices. I usually start helping people narrow it down by […]

Website Redesign Launched!

I have been wanting to redesign my website for a long time. A really, really long time. And I wanted it to be something that I created from the bottom up, not just some WordPress theme that I found and installed and customized. So I figured out how to develop a simple WordPress theme, which […]

Bouncy Ball

After creating the Wiggly Worm animation last week, I decided I’d better seek guidance from the internet to help me learn a little more about animation. I found a great tutorial from the Angry Animator on how to animate a bouncing ball. It had lots of great details and was easy to follow along with. […]

Wiggly Worm

Daniel’s Red Ice hockey game needs some animated cutscenes, and he’s asked me to create them. I haven’t animated anything since using Flash in high school, but I thought I’d give it a shot, since I remember animation being pretty fun, and I’ve been wanting to improve my art skills. I don’t like paying for […]

Minted Israeli Couscous Salad

Maybe it’s the approaching summer and a few hot days we’ve had recently (why can’t it be 70 degrees all the time?), but I’ve been feeling really un-motivated lately, and the last thing I want to do is cook. I’ve been subsisting for the last few weeks on smoothies, salads, cereal, soy yogurt, sandwiches, and […]

Of grapes and stars and a golden pegasus

There was a beautiful young girl named Kate. She bought a red balloon that was as high as the stars. She decided to jump in a boot with a mouse and fly through the wind. She did. She landed in a big field full of hill-clouds with smoke coming out. When she landed she saw […]

Thrifty Patternmaking – Recycled T-Shirt

I’m mentoring an 8th grade student at WSP through a sewing project, and the first garment we’re making is a t-shirt. In preparation for our next few meetings, I drafted and quickly made up a t-shirt of my own this evening, so I can guide her more effectively through the tricky parts in the coming […]

Fabric Scrap Earrings – New Pattern in the Store!

I made a pair of earrings out of some striped t-shirt fabric left over from another project, and every time I wear them, I always get about a million compliments. They’re one of my favorite pairs of earrings, and since they are made of fabric, they’re really lightweight. I have three piercings in each ear, […]
