An incredibly nerdy post for sure, but I just couldn’t help myself. Last night, my friend Kaitlyn and I went to the Game of Thrones Pop Up Bar in DC. I had to pick up my boyfriend from the train at 11 pm so it worked out that I was going to be in the

Thank goodness for my full-time job! Since my small business is my side gig, I don’t frequently get to say those words, but this past weekend, I was so so thankful for my job. We have an office in Charleston and when I realized the city was going to be in full totality of the

My boyfriend has landed in NYC. He will be getting his full-time residence there later this year, but for now, he is stationed in temporary housing. For the week of the Fourth of July, I went to visit him and spend some time hanging in the city. I worked from home every day that week

In January, I took a frame weaving class and I am kinda obsessed. The process of weaving is so theraputic. I am giving the last one I made away to my little brother and his girlfriend, so to replace it I created this one. I am still getting used to making them and started this

Over the past four weeks, I took a frame weaving class at the Visual Art Center. I wanted to take this for so long but haven’t been able to find a suitable time, but this winter, I made it work. I planned four weekends in a row in Richmond, something I never do, just to

Last year for my birthday, I went to Portland & Seattle. This year’s trip was Chicago. It was my first time there and I just loved the city. The weekend was predicted to have terrible weather, but everyday when we awoke, the skies just cleared right up. We left the airport in DC after work

Over the weekend I finally got to go to the Renwick Gallery in DC. I have been wanting to go for a while since it was renovated, but the line was always crazy long. After getting up early and getting some coffee, my boyfriend and I went for it. It was truly inspiring to see

Last year I read the book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, as did many of you! Afterwards, I went through my house and began Marie Kondo’s process of decluttering. It went well, but I felt like I needed to do it again since I’ve had a huge wardrobe change and a roomate move out! What a

Last year was pretty incredible. My little printmaking business branched out a bit from my corporate graphic design. I used my trailer completion at a jumping point to title it Off the Beaten Press and didn’t look back. I also gained a new press and taught classes every month of the year at the Visual Art
