Went outside at just the right moment…
This was SUCH a challenging project — I spent so much time experimenting with different materials, had so many false starts. It worked out in the end! At first I was thinking maybe papier-mâché but ended up using modeling clay. I think papier-mâché would be so fun for puppets at a little bit larger scale though!
Our puppy Trevor and I collaborated on this little pawprint ornament to celebrate his first Christmas season! We adopted him in April and he’s almost a year old now! He has added so much fun and laughter and love to our household, I can’t imagine it without him anymore.
A miniature marionette, with the help of an amazing puppet-making book from the ’50s! Fully the most insane object I have ever attempted to make.

92 Court St. in Machias, Maine 🙂
I ran across this scrap I had of a Naiad Einsel illustration and had to turn it into a bookmark for my gorgeous edition of Pinocchio! I love her work so much.
A little emotional processing project…

A day well spent! Here’s the pattern I used.
Making a birthday card for a friend… 🙂

When life surgically removes your wisdom teeth, you go to the studio and make yourself some more.
