Love is Waiting SHOP!

My friend, Heather, and her husband, Aaron, are in the process of adopting a little boy from Ethiopia! Heather is a super talented designer and Aaron, a super talented musician. They just launched the Love is Waiting Shop to help fund the expensive process of bringing their little guy home forever.

Check it out & support the Hale's on their journey!

Absolutely beautiful work, Heather!

Warmbelly Brews: Empire Saison

Warmbelly Brews brewed this beer at the beginning of the summer—possibly my favorite of their beers so far.

I drew the Empire State Building on this label while sitting in the King's County Courthouse looking out the picture window at the Manhattan skyline (and the Empire State Building) while I was serving jury duty. I also hand drew the letters while sitting many long hours there as well.

They have an ESB (currently sitting in my closet...) that will be ready for sampling this weekend. J wrote the ESB recipe himself with some inspiration from the West Coast beers we had on our trip so as he says, "it's gonna be a hoppy boy!" As soon as they taste it and name it I'll be whipping up some new labels!

grappolo d'uva

Dug up some old Italy pics for a project I've been working on.

It's been fun actually getting to use them for something!

It's September.

Two photos from our trip out west.

Big things coming my chickens... just don't go gettin' your panties all tangled now... it's closer than you think!
