Art Happens

14, Jan 2014

EP 3 Update time! The holidays made us all take a bit of a break on the record making front, which was fine. Things are picking up again and I had a meeting with Emily Shirley this week about artwork. This is one of my favorite parts of the process because really, I don’t have […]

O’Keeffe in Santa Fe

27, Dec 2013

It’s silly that I do not make it to Santa Fe and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum every time I am in New Mexico, because it’s a beautiful town and O’Keeffe is one of my favorite artists. She painted for over 60 years, lived to be 99, and her body of work is stunning. She was […]

So…co-writing and stuff.  I haven’t done a ton of it.  I am thrilled to be able to say I co-wrote “Lovely When You Cry” with Susan and that it’s on her Tightrope album (lyric video here!).  And I’ve sat down a few times with folks to write but I can’t say a lot of things […]

Happy New Year!

1, Jan 2013

Happy January 2013!  I started out the year right with some arts and crafts. Since I just moved and have had roommates for so long, I found that I had no plates or bowls to my name. Susan had an old set and had also read on Pinterest that if you Sharpie on them and […]

The Office

18, Jul 2012

One of the things I’ve been working on is setting up an office space. My awesome roomie Katie is the queen of decorating, and she encouraged me to co-opt the dining room for an office space so that I could in fact sleep in one room and work in another. It’s been awesome. The first […]

Early Month Check In

8, Feb 2012

Alright, so month 2 of 12 months of experiments is underway, and as explained below, I’m calling this one The Early Month. This has actually turned into a bit of a misnomer because while I tried, I cannot quite tweak my schedule to get up at 5 AM at this juncture. There is rarely the […]

January was the “ease in slowly” month. Photos are phun. I finally found the joys of Instagram, so there’s that. As I mentioned earlier, it’s nice to have to stare at seemingly mundane situations and have to pull a photo out of them (as in, “CRAP I haven’t taken a photo yet today quick!”). Art […]

Last night we took a cooking class at Central Market called “Winter Soups and Stews.” Thankfully, as rare as it has been this winter, it was cloudy and damp. Perfect soup weather. Plus, I’ve gotten really tired lately of just relying on my staple of Paula Deen’s Cheesy Ham and Banana Casserole (just kidding GOOD […]

Idea 1: Meet Lady Gaga’s wax figure. Idea 2: Meet the real Lady Gaga (in progress) These numbers are not totally accurate but for the sake of metrics…I have had about 14 good ideas this week. I forgot four of them about 10 seconds after I had them. Goodbye…I hope you got caught by someone […]

Interesting scenario this morning. Katie sends me a link to a Youtube video. It’s a cool version of a song I had never heard before (so technically it was a cover but since I didn’t know the original, eh)…being played by 5 people on 1 guitar. I see a TON of content every day, and […]
