  • I should be painting, so after you read this, let's both pretend I'm doing something more productive.

  • It's Fall. That is good.

  • I had my 8th wedding anniversary last week. I actually feel a bit disconnected from my wedding as a huge milestone in our relationship which is probably weird. When we got married, we had already been together for 6 years and had Gideon and a house and a car... it was a beautiful wedding and I love that Mat is my husband, but I don't think it changed anything for us. Which is great, of course. We also planned the wedding in a few months so the date became a matter of convenience and wasn't otherwise significant. (Halloween is our first date anniversary and that is so much more special to me, but I was *not* going to have a Halloween wedding.) Anyway, I do think we should enjoy our moments, so we made a point of buying each other little presents and we saw Cirque Du Soliel over the weekend and went to breakfast on the day of. It was lovely and definitely better than, uh, not celebrating? Being married is a big deal I guess. :P


  • My present to Mat was another Jake Waldron eye. If you're like me, and love tiny things and creepy things, find this guy and buy his stuff before he hits the big time. This is my third piece from him, each is incredible and he is super nice. He's also showing in that Halloween group show I'm in!

  • This amazing little eye was my incredibly selfish anniversary gift to Mat. @jakewaldron you never cease to amaze! This is a collection I can never display together because I want eyes and tiny faces in every room of my house...

  • Mat gave me a dolly! A Yeolume, which is adorable and it was so much fun to get a new kind of doll. I need time for proper pictures. She's very much like whatever falls in between a Pullip and a Blythe on the imaginary scale you'd put them on opposite ends of.

  • My doll for the Halloween show is almost done. I think despite my growing panic, she'll be done in time. (I have to get her off to Australia by the end of the month.) I need to build in a tiny bit of time to really step away and make sue she's exactly what I want to show. I still feel odd that my art is on top of an existing product as opposed to something I created entirely, but I'll get there. If painting skeletons on dolls gets me there, than so be it. I am hoping to sculpt a tiny friend for her -- here's hoping I have time.

  • I'm late to the Chelsea Wolfe party, right? Pain is Beauty So so so so so good for my mood/the weather/ the season. I've been listening to them all right from the website. It is also on amazon Prime.


  • Leonard Cohen's new album is on NPR First Listen

  • Also good, in a John Malkovich kind of way.

  • Also good, in a gorgeous lady momma woman hero kind of way.

  • Ok, I really do need to paint. Hopefully I'll have finished pictures soon.

  • Happy Fall, friends
