dog days of spring

there's this prairie for dogs in oak forest (a suburb outside of chicago about 45 minutes)- this is the closest thing I can think of to doggie heaven. this is how my crew and i spent Easter Sunday (there was wine, cheese, ham, and crackers involved).

I think Jesus would have enjoyed the dog prairie- tons of happy dogs running around getting their ya-yas out. Superb. Stella (my pup) and Judah (AbbyG's pup) are best pals and lovers... the dog with several balls and "chuck it" toy in his mouth was just hanging out. The dogs waded in mud and ran around like lunatics while the humans picnicked. Marisa made myer lemon- olive oil bundt cakes for dessert, that were insanely yummy. It was a windy afternoon- but we managed to have a blast anyway. Best Easter ever.

magical fairy forest meadow...

This Friday, April 9th from 6-9 pm workshop will be hosting an opening for the work of the beautiful Natalia Ivancevich.

This talented babe has installed one of her gorgeous hand-cut paper atmospheres, right in the workshop storefront windows! The installation is so lovely (I never want her to take it down).... The way that the light interacts with the intricate cut-outs is quite magical, and should be witnessed in person. Hope to see you there!
Here are a few images of the installation process:
