May Newsletter ★ New Issues of Button Club & Senioritis ★

Hello friends,

It's almost Memorial Day, and just in case you've come down with a case of Senioritis (which of course can be applied to many things long after school is over), please consider this email as one more way to stick it to your to-do list. Speaking of to-do lists, I never was able to cross off "send April Newsletter," from mine, for which I have no good excuse. Except that I had to re-watch every episode of Arrested Development to prepare for much anticipated 4th season. So that's legit, right?!
Thank you, that's what I thought you would say. If you're an AD fan, you must check out NPR's delightfully obsessed guide to gags from the show.

Since we last checked in, Button Club got colorful, (featuring guest artist Serena Mitnik-Miller) and put a bird on it, (featuring guest artist Albert Campbell). If you don't know what I'm talking about, imagine a world where you get fresh, new art delivered to your mailbox every month. Side effects may include unbridled happiness, lucky breaks, and the fulfillment of your wildest dreams.*
(*Okay, so technically I can't promise any of that, but when was the last time a bill, or a "dear occupant" letter got you this excited? I rest my case. Subscribe now.)

Lest you think it's only about buttons around here, check out these new sets of super strong magnets: I love New York, and I love Veronica Mars. I've also been knitting up a brand new line of super soft hats (in adult and baby sizes), made with organic, hand-dyed merino wool and natural alpaca, available exclusively at General Store in San Francisco.

Until next time!

What does being
What does being "Bad at Art" even mean?

June 25, 2020

Were you ever told that you were bad at art? Or maybe nobody said that to you, but you just feel really clumsy any time you’ve tried it? Have you ever had an idea and then when you tried to draw or paint it, it looked nothing like you imagined? For many years, I told myself I wasn’t an artist. I didn’t go to art school. I wasn’t taking any art classes. I didn’t have “natural talent.”  I became frustrated whenever I would take a pen to paper, because I could never make what I saw in my hea...

What I've been doing for the last few months - Limited Edition Seed Bead Earrings now available!

June 22, 2020

A few months ago, after my regular day job abruptly ended due to COVID, I started to clean out my art and craft supplies. I came across a box of beads that I probably hadn't touched since 1995. It contained seed and bugle beads that I used to make jewelry from. The box was a mess, different bead colors and sizes mixed together, some also entangled in knotted bunches of thread. I set about sorting, thinking maybe I could sell them, and found something calming about this mindless task. But in t...
