I am back from my work and play in beautiful Hawaii. Tomorrow I'll show you my scarf progress, but for today I wanted to share some photos I took on my trip. I spent a week doing work stuff on Oahu, and then went to the big island to relax before coming home. Everything was... Continue Reading →
I haven't been posting much on the weekends due to my travel schedule, but I'm making an exception to share this photo. The spouse and I went to some museums yesterday and on the walk there we ran into these flowers and bumblebees. I was also excited to see some actual honeybees buzzing around as... Continue Reading →
You just can't visit Washington DC in the springtime without stopping to see the cherry blossoms. It was a little early today but there are already a few trees blooming. I am hoping to get another chance to see them soon, hopefully even more trees will be in bloom by then.

Not sure how... Continue Reading →
Work travel doesn't leave a lot of time for creative things, but I made sure to take a few pictures at least. I hope you enjoy them!
That was an unexpectedly long absence! My vacation was great, but when I got home I got bogged down with a very bad cold, so I used it as a small break from doing creative things every day. While it was nice to not have to worry about posting something here every day, I started... Continue Reading →
More poetry today! And once again I'm not posting it here, sorry. This time it isn't personal or sad, it's just very work-related. As a consolation prize, please enjoy this photo of my handsome boy.
