clear out sale

i have a few odds and ends from the work room clean up that i'll be posting on ebay. this vase set auction will end in a few days- the start price is just 10.99. bid away! i also have a few in a beautiful coral red color. please send me an email for more info.

cupcake update

this batch of cupcakes went fast! i made them available to pre-order in the shop because of the feature in philadelphia home magazine. no worries if you didn't get one- i have another dozen or so in the works (should be done in about a week).

more nuggets

i just finished a few more nuggets that will be in the shop shortly. if you haven't seen them before, they are 100% made by hand- i design and print the fabric using my gocco machine, then sew, and stuff with beans.

nap time

we went for a long walk this morning and bernie is all tired out. he's so funny when he sleeps on his side because his little arms stick straight out in the air.

lost and found

i thought i had lost it! i'm so glad i didn't. while finishing my work room clean up i found this book of original work that one of my printmaking classes made together (taught by martin mazorra-one of my favorite teachers at parsons). everyone made an edition of 10 prints around the theme of god/religion and we assembled them into a book that everyone could keep. the prints shown below are cover page by martin mazorra, mochnesh by miki amano, absent shepherd by andrew kehoe, there must be something else by me, and the budda for broken things by ai miki.

forever cupcakes

i just got a copy of the beautiful and newly designed philadelphia home magazine in the mail today. i am super excited to have the forever cupcake featured (thanks caroline!) this is their special green issue and it looks so great- i can't wait to read through the rest of the articles. there's also a fresh batch of cupcakes almost ready for the shop- this might be the best one yet with extra thick and peaked "frosting".

signs of spring

it feels so early but there are buds popping out everywhere. i just love spring.

February 17, 2008


i have been pretty run-down and sick after working a few very long days at rose and radish last week (the busiest time of year for most florists...valentine's day). i'm feeling back to normal today so we finally fixed our front window that has been broken forever. i am also in the process of photographing my new work area- so there should be some sneak peeks soon.

oh lovely

i am so excited- i just got the print i ordered from camilla. i saw it on her blog awhile ago and have been waiting for her to put it up for sale. i love it so much. she sent a sweet little drawing and a beautiful letterpress postcard printed by port to port along with it. this package makes up for the fact that it is going to rain all weekend.
