What Do You Think?


I love the bones of this space, and relish the thought of actually having a bedroom with such a dramatic ‘headboard’ such as the one shown here. I do think though that this arch isn’t being used in the best manner – there’s so much more that could be done to really enhance it. Add wallpaper or stencils or decals perhaps, or install impressive lighting, or simply add paint. What would you do to give this arch the respect and attention that it deserves? Or do you prefer it ‘as is’?

See you in 2007!


It’s time to pause for the rest of the month, so I’m stepping away from my desk and heading off on a mini break. This will be my first blog vacation of the year, so although I’ll miss you all, I’m excited to spend time with friends and family and pull the plug on my laptop. I’m sure you can relate!

So, I bid you adieu for now… Enjoy special times with all the special people in your life — I’ll see you on January 2, 2007! – Holly

Shawn Stucky


Chicago-based Shawn Stucky rocks. I love his three-color hand pulled screen prints and since he’s color blind, I’m that much more amazed by his fantastic color combinations and works…

Rainy Prints

I love the look of Rainy Prints, who create these really nice hand-pressed linoleum cuts. So affordable, too. See the process to printmaking here on the Rainy blog. I love this blog – a teaching blog. I’d love to find more blogs that explain a process, like how to sew, reupholster furniture, how to get started on a letterpress, textile design, etc. I know they would be very time consuming, and most small business owners do not have the time to blog about their work in addition to create, market, ship, deal with customers, present at shows, etc. That’s why a blog like Rainy Prints is so unique and special to me. Do you know of any process oriented blogs on said topics?
