Memory Box

I just finished up a wedding memory box, commissioned by my parents’ good friend for her daughter’s upcoming wedding. It was kind of  a difficult project because I really didn’t want to screw up a special gift from a mother to a daughter, but it was an honor to be asked and the reviews were […]

And on those Fridays I slept like I was getting paid to, sometimes sleeping eight hours straight without breaks. That’s unsurprising since I pretty much minored in naps at college.

My cat Toby was extremely glad to have me home on these Fridays. Or maybe I was just in his spot. Either way, I started documenting our time together. This is my series, “Fridays with Toby.”
