We had a beautiful time with Jeff and Michelle in the great state of Arkansas!

Got some lunch in Fayeteville (such a cool and pretty college town) and then headed to Bull Shoals Dam to fish the White River. Alas, the water was too high due to Gustav and Ike but we were able to fish about 25 miles away at the Norfork. I am so thankful to have such a great friendship in my brother and his wife and for the way in which Tyler and Jeff have bonded. Some pictures...

Gone Fishin

We are going fly fishing in Arkansas this weekend with my brother Jeff and his lovely, little lady, Michelle. I can't wait! Perfect weather and three of the best people I know. I am anticipating awesome "camp" food. Bacon cooked over an open fire! It doesn't get much better than that! I'll have some pictures on Monday. Smiles!

No bleach please and thank you!

Our old home has an old bathtub and I have had quite a time finding an eco-friendly, non-toxic, cleaner to get the job done. Thank you Method. Thank you Target. The tub is now officially bubble bath ready.

Fresh Start

Here goes nothing...or something...or everything all at once...

Just the way my brain processes. I can't seem to stick with one train of thought. There are always new ideas and projects popping in and out. This will be an avenue to get those bits and pieces out of my brain and into action. Hopefully a place to share my creativity and be inspired by others.

First event of interest for you Norman, Edmond, and Oklahoma City folk...
My friend Lindsay Zodrow has opened an awesome store in the Plaza District of OKC.
Collected Thread is located at NW16th and Blackwelder.
Her hours are 11-6 Tuesday through Saturday. Birdie (Blue Bird Vintage) is one of the local vendors.
There are vintage dresses, aprons and housewares to be found.
I am also working on some feather hair pieces as well as some hand sewn goods.

The whole idea behind Collected Thread is to support and introduce local artists in OKC. Everything in the store is either handmade or vintage and about 75% of it is local.
Come and support local talent in OKC!!!!!
