entry #25: I knit things

Do you know how to knit? I learned, slowly, at Kiwi Kitting in Tucson. First thing I knit on my own was this rasta hat. I love the random texture in the yarn. It covers my beginner mistakes. What’s next? A sweater or a cowl?

entry #24: Addy Awards

I won a Bronze ADDY Award for an outdoor campaign I did for the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, as their in-house Creative Manager. We were trying to increase donations, volunteers and awareness around hunger in Tucson and beyond. The bus shelter and bus bench ads used the resonating phrases, “Together we can end hunger” and “Imagine a world without hunger.” So glad a non-profit was represented in this year’s awards!

entry #22: Holiday Sweater

We were invited to the annual Tacky Holiday Sweater Party in Tucson. I tried to find a tacky cute sweater with cats on it, but didn’t want to drop $50+ on ebay. So, I decided I could just make one myself! I spent less then $3 on felt at Micheal’s, picked up ribbon from the dollar store and used embroidery thread from my collection. I tied for third place in the tacky sweater category for ‘Best PTA Parent’ sweater!

entry #21: Hunger Relief License Plate

Back in the summer of 2011, just a few weeks into my new job as Creative Manager at the Community Food Bank, I was asked to come up with a few designs for a specialty license plate. My three designs were picked as the top three and then went to vote by the Arizona Association of Food Banks.

A winner was chosen, and is now available for purchase by all Arizona drivers!

The final design uses the green and orange branded colors of Feeding America, the national anti-hunger organization. I also used the wheat stalks and fork used in the Community Food Bank’s logo. The tagline was fairly easy, the committee voted to stick with the clever tagline “Ending Hunger One Plate at a Time.” Nice, right? A simple, sunset-like color effect on the background, plus 15+ rounds of tweaks and changes, and ta-da! It’s a winner.

A few billboard advertisements are still up along I-10 between Tucson and Phoenix. Have you seen them?

entry #17: Happy shopping, my dears!

My online store is now open! Hundreds of people have been requesting a John Muir t-shirt, and now they can order their own from my little online shop. The illustration was the winner of Sierra Club’s John Muir t-shirt contest back in April of this year.

Order a shirt for yourself, your loved ones and co-workers. Choose from a variety of men’s and women’s fits; organic and regular fabrics; and many different colors. I’m even offering a large tote bag for your trips to the Farmers’ Market.

The store is powered by Printfection, a print-on-demand online company that takes care of the ordering, printing and shipping. This makes it easy for me because it frees up my time to create even more designs for my fans. When you click on the link to the store it will take you a different web site, but don’t worry, it’s totally legit.

My store:

Please contact me if you would like a color or fit that is not featured on the site (I like special orders). Happy shopping!

entry #15: Featherwear photoshoot

These wonderful pairs of feather earrings were handcrafted by Marya at Plume Featherware. They believe adornment and self-expression should be affordable, fun, natural, and practical. I agree! Her earrings are so lightweight and vibrant. I get complimented several times a day when I wear them. Plume’s philosophy includes providing progressive women an ethically produced product that highlights their natural beauty. Plume does not use feathers from birds grown or killed for their feathers alone. Plume Featherware also support the local economy and use as many renewable resources as they can.

I was first introduced Plume’s unique jewelry at a wedding set in the mountains in New Mexico. The bridal party wore custom earrings that played off and complimented their hair color and gown. The groomsmen and family also wore vibrant feather pins. The pieces were not only gorgeous, but they set the wedding party apart from the crowd and set the tone for the event.

I have three pairs that I love equally. I wanted to show my appreciation of Marya and her Plume creations. So I decided a desert sunset photoshoot was the least I could do.
