Kitting, playfully. A secret revealed.
I have a secret to start talking about! I am working to release a line of stamps, stencils and Thermofax screens, all designed to coordinate and print interactively with one another (of course each tool can be used on its own too, which when you think of it-exponentially helps to print a huge and varied stash).

It seems I am no longer concerned about what media I use to express my vision, cloth, paper, itContinue reading “On my desk”
It seems Peach has done another awesome thing. She found David and I, specifically. Last week I had several conversations with the veterinarian who ‘spayed’ Peach. It turns out, the spay was incomplete and uterine tissue was left inside her body. This tissue is producing estrogen. Peach needs to go into heat again, so thatContinue reading “Continued Story.”

She is a cardio kitty, she loves to be chased, and she is an UP cat, she like to be up high, looking down at life around her. She also likes toContinue reading “Printable Daydreams”
