Heyo, happy Friday! What's up, weekend peeps? How's the new year treatin' yas? We're ramping up with some fun new projects at the studio, including #365AnnieDoodles, Annie's new doodle a day project (there she is hard at work, above). Orlie's got one going on as well--it's #365orliegrams over on Instagram. Get inspired!
Without further ado: Our fave bits and bobs from the week...
I recently bought a set of new watercolor inks by Dr. PH Martin, and I am loving playing with them and trying new stuff. January is always a fun time for me to explore new materials and techniques and see if there's any creative classes I can take.
Wondering what to do with winter beets?
Norwegian Beet Salad
Peel and shred one beet, one carrot and one Apple.
*1 cup chopped nuts (like walnuts)
*Half cup shredded dried coconut (sweet or unsweetened)
*2 tbs lemon juice
*1 tbs fresh minced ginger
*1 Tbs toasted sesame oil
*Some chopped parsley
Mix together and enjoy this crisp, delicious winter treat.
A few weeks ago--after Christmas but just before the new year--I was driving back to SF from southern California with some pals. We stopped in Pismo Beach for a bite and wandered by a lovely little quilt shop; I collect scraps and trinkets and thought I might find a treasure inside. I was right! They had a bolt of fabric featuring the most wonderful little festive scene, illustrated by someone named Tammis Keefe. I bought two panels then did a little research, and this woman was incredible! She worked at Disney, was art director of Arts and Architecture for a bit, and made a fantastic--like, really fantastic, and really vast--collection. Here's a wonderful post for more on her fascinating life and work. Swoon.
