summer in the city...


Top: ginger walnut coconut carrot cake with sunflower coconut cream cheese frosting. A surprise (shh!) for a friend's birthday tomorrow- complete with carrots from her farm.

Bottom: a few of the bibs I've been working on. This is the first round using terrycloth for the fabric on the back, just to make them more absorbent. I'm pretty happy with how they are turning out.

That title is a slight lie. It's summer in a small town actually, but still the people, muggy air, veggies.. and rivers and mountains. I've been trying to get out to new bodies of water around where I live. Last summer I was 30 min. south and it's a totally different set of river spots and lakes. Recently a friend showed me a spot that getting to involved going past huge sand piles and through a bamboo forest...really, a bamboo forest! in Vermont! I had no idea. Other than that just enjoying the rooftop garden I've made (already 2 little tomatoes, not bad for starting late!) and cranking out art.

I am gearing up to table at Rhino Fest in early August, then eventually get things up on the etsy site; baby steps for now.



  1. Did you have a baby I don't know of? I love all these cute baby things. That cake looks delicious. I miss you, lovely girl.

  2. I promise, no baby secrets! I guess it started when all my friends started having babies and I wanted to make gifts. Now I just think they are really fun. Thanks! Do you want to try a skype date again? Miss you too.
