Although the shop will remain open, orders received after end-of-day on Sunday June 4 will not ship until after my return on June 20 and will be sent in the order received. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

The Edit: February 2022

March 29, 2023

Welcome to The Edit


Dropping on the blog on the 1st of every month, The Edit will bring to you all my online finds, links, inspiration, thoughts, and favorites since the last Edit. Plus, there will be a review of and links to my recent demos and online events -- just in case you might have missed one. And a whole lot more. 

For those of you who have been around the block with me for some time, think of this as The Sunday Papers. On steroids. Every so often I might hop on my soapbox and share something a bit more serious and topical. But mostly, The Edit is here to provide a moment of escape and a bucket load of inspiration. Let me know what you think in the comments.
