So excited today to receive Christmas Kind presents from friends in Germany. Their two sons Steven and Lennart made and sent beautiful framed works of art for my studio walls!

Sunlight in my studio today felt so good.

During my trip to NYC we visited the Museum of Natural History. I have never been! The Great Hall of Mammals is wildly impressive and the dinosaurs, well, they really make you feel small:)


Hall of Butterflies


Rhinos are positively prehistoric!

Lotta Jansdotter Workshop

 

I am excited to be going to a workshop with Scandinavian designer Lotta Jansdotter at her Brooklyn studio where she creates and sells her products and designs. See her work at Fish's Eddy in the Flatiron district of NYC.  It was a little Christmas gift to myself for the grey days of January, a time when alot of us need a little creative inspiration. I'll be back with all kinds of ideas:)
