Shop Update

New cake things in the shop. You love cake too, right?


I also have a new workspace! I am loving it! Thank you IKEA and husband for putting it together. I hadn't even thought about lighting until we had it all put together. There is a glass portion in the top of the desk to light from below, but I need more light and hate the fluorescent overheads. We happened to have a light/lamp cord from IKEA laying around so I put together this little lampshade made from paper (with inspiration from a DIY blog post I saw somewhere (?) where they made a similar shade from wooden strips). It is nice to have more space... the husband and I had been sharing a desk for the last year (that's right, two computers, one desk, lots of bumping elbows). I have to say it was a little sad moving all of my things to the new desk after sitting next to each other every night at the computer... we felt like I was moving out or something... haha.

Etsy Love

Why have I not seen these?

I came across these pictures of my parents recently. In the middle of the 90's they literally took a church apart by hand from the top down so that all of it's parts could be salvaged. Nearly everything was cleaned up and sold to be reused; the ceiling joists, bricks, windows, pews, stone foundations, wood. I helped to clean some of the bricks during the process, but never really appreciated or understood how much work is involved in a project like this until I was older and came to admire their ambition and hard work. I wish I were as brave.

Big O Shop Update

Sorry for the country-soundin title but we went camping for one night and definitely picked up the country accent. Well, not really, but we're trying.

Bonus! Hilarious photo of one of our funny dogs. She looks like this on a pretty regular basis:

Coincidentally to the previous post on our faux bois wedding, I am featured in this wood-grain inspired treasury: Wood Grain Love Story. So beautiful. And so appropriate.

Wojcik - like "whoa chick"

I know, I've been a really horrible blogger, but really do you expect more out of me... most likely not. Thank you to anyone who is actually reading this, I am going to try to be better.

I kind of have a good excuse though... I got married! I know, crazy! We had a small ceremony (very small, just the two of us and a officiant and a photographer) right on the coast in Ogunquit Maine and it was beautiful and intimate and everything we wanted. It was our first actual vacation alone EVER so that was a pretty big deal too. It was a quick trip, we were only there for a couple of days, but it was beautiful. We were there at the beginning of March so it was not the vacation season which was kind of nice. It was a little chilly the first day we were there and for our ceremony, but we had really great weather for the rest of the trip. We also ate some really amazing food, and got massages and just did a lot of relaxing and looking at the ocean. Then in May our family held a reception for us in Buffalo and that was a lot of fun, mostly because I got to decorate and make things. Plus, now I have a new and difficult last name.

As a gift, our friend Travis of Travis Neely Photography took these amazing photos for us. He is an incredible photographer and does tons of weddings as well as some local artist portraits among other things. I highly recommend checking out his website, even if you aren't in Pittsburgh or in the market for a photographer. You won't regret it.

Also keeping me busy: job hunting (again). Let me know if you know of any Pittsburgh creative jobs!

The Making of Fantastic Mr. Fox ... I wish I was patient enough to build little characters in sets, because I totally would.
And an interesting video from a more technical viewpoint

Well, I have been made aware that I have not blogged in "a long time"... and it's true. So here I am! I am going to make an attempt to be a better blogger... we will see how it goes.

So, remember that new shop I was talking about, Oh, Hello There? Wellll, I have 3 items up (baby steps)! Go check them out:

Also, the fabulous Erin of ekahd Photography sent me this photo she took of the business cards I made for her (lots-o-die cuts). Check out her blog or website to see more of her work.
