Week 2: 100 Days of House and Home

Week 2: 100 Days of House and Home

This has been a really interesting challenge so far, just over two weeks in. The theme of “home” keeps coming up in all sorts of places! Some friends and I have been talking about neighboring, and how being a good neighbor can make a huge difference in daily life and in the life of a […]

100 Days of House & Home: Week 1

I’m just over a week into the project! Woohoo! It has been harder to get back into the rhythm of this than I expected. Partly because my life is generally more full of things, partly because my eye for photography is better and I’ve been trying to finish my project for the day before the […]

The 100 Day Project: 2016

Last year I completed my 100 Days Project, “100 Days of Paper Folding” by reconnecting with my childhood experience of origami, and also exploring new forms and possibilities using the same tools and methods I use for all of my yeiou {paper objects} products. I’ve been feeling pulled toward experimenting more with mark-making and 2D […]

Free Printable Gift Tags

I’m sharing the holiday spirit this year in the form of a free printable! My favorite part of the Christmas season is that it gives me a reason/excuse to make, buy, and find gifts for all of the people around me. This year, that includes you! This printable includes 6 different gift tags in various […]

Origami Engineering (to build bridges and stuff, really!)

I had a really neat “small world” moment yesterday. A family friend, who I’ve known for longer than I can remember, sent me a link to an article about paper engineering. That’s pretty neat, but happens with some frequency since everyone knows I like paper. This particular article, though, happens to feature some really exciting work being done in […]

Reflections on 100 days of paper folding

I had so many intentions going into this project, and pretty much all of them fell by the wayside as I focused on scratching out enough time in each day to take a deep breath, find a piece of paper, and fold something. I had grand visions of regular blog updates to reflect on the […]

The 100 Day Project: 100 Days of Paper Folding

This has the potential to be a longer, sappier story, so I’ll just stick to the facts here. Stay tuned for more reflection and philosophizing. I’m participating in The 100 Day Project! I will be repeating a creative action (in my case, folding paper) every day for 100 days. The project kicked off on Monday, […]

Collaboration: A collaboration with ThoughtMixingBowl.com

I got a fun request last week to write a little piece for a website called Thought Mixing Bowl. The site is a place for people to think and share about life, art, and community. There’s a new prompt every week, and a panel of people who write a response. The topic this week is: What […]

Thanks!

Happy Thanksgiving! This has been a crazy year, going from an inkling of an idea in the spring to November with a full line of products with multiple craft shows under my belt. Thank you for your support, whether that’s simply visiting this website and reading these words, or visiting me at a show and letting […]

Awesome fangirl moment

You guys, Lisa Congdon shared a photo I took of her book on her Instagram feed and blog! It’s teeny tiny, and there isn’t actually a credit, but those are definitely my wrinkly sheets (three down, on the left). My second montage of #artinc out in the world (I posted the first one in September). […]
