a new venture

good evening from the midwest!

so here i am in this lovely little city called chicago.  i’ve been tapping into my writer mind quite a bit (which makes sense, seeing as i’m here to, well, get a degree in writing), and just suddenly realized (with the help of a few persistent friends back east – you’re right, you’re right) that i haven’t been on here in a while.  the truth is, i haven’t been producing very much visual work of late, my time being taken up with story crafting and yoga practicing and lululemon lululemoning.  BUT.  i got a nice surprise in the mail the other day (ok, the other week – man time flies by in graduate school).  this past summer, for a few of my recently wedded friends, i designed custom made return address stamps as part of their gifts.  handwritten and consisting of their new names, these stamps were so much fun to create, and to see in their finished state.  so how lovely was it to receive a thank you note with the inked product on the back?  well, it was very lovely, thank you.

i’m thinking of producing these regularly, so if you know of anyone who would like a custom stamp, please forward the message on!  oh, and happy autumn – the past few weeks has been full of pumpkin scones, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin bread… with pumpkin carving to come this weekend.
