Olive Leaf series: Exploration over Perfection

I have always been drawn to linear, organic, layered patterns. I've always loved cross-cut concentric tree rings, close-ups of finger prints, topographical maps, and of course, wood grain. I can't put my finger on why exactly they are so appealing, but here are some thoughts: I find these patterns dynamic yet peaceful, ordered yet unconstrained. Somehow they are strangely comforting. I think they stand as a reminder that things don't have to be perfect to be beautiful. Nesting inside each other, fitting perfectly, folding over themselves, creating their very own paths. And maybe, extrapolating a little bit, they stand as a visual reminder for my own ideals: don't focus so much on perfection, but instead, allow for some disruption, exploration, and deviation from the line. So with all this in mind, naturally these...

Shipping Tip Tuesday! New for Fall/Winter 2020

Handmade Letterpress Winter Print - free with every $50+ order

Now more than ever, I figured we could all use a little more art in our life. I know that online shopping kind-of takes the fun out of shopping local craft and handmade. We really miss our regular craft shows, where everyone can feel and see the fine details that give handmade items their special qualities. With that in mind, I wanted to add something extra to my orders this November - just to get a little more handmade goodness out into the world, despite everything.To that end, I commissioned this print from illustrator + artist Kira Lodder, who worked up this lovely winter greenery design. Then the design was printed by Sara Froese, owner of All Sorts Press, a one-of-a-kind letterpress...
