Easter with friends

Fifteen pounds of uncured ham. (Note to self: Chargrilled ham is unbelievably delicious, but a raw ham is not for the faint of heart.) Eight friends, two visiting from Ireland. Two dogs. One baby. Lots of chopping, dicing, scooping, steaming, pouring, peeling, flaming, taste-testing, cheersing, sipping, chatting, playing and love. Lots of love. Easter with [...]

Hooray, I’m selling at my first-ever Renegade this Saturday + Sunday! 250+ of the country’s best handcrafters in one spot. I LOVE this show. (I haven’t missed a single one, summer or holiday, since my first time in 2010!) Earlier this year, I wouldn’t have even imagined that I’d be selling at RENEGADE. I started [...]

Anatomy of a suede scrap necklace

This is the third in a series of handmade necklace DIYs and inspiration I’ll be posting for FLP’s Great Necklace Exchange. Today’s the last day to sign up! Manimal founder and designer Kristen Lombardi started her brand with handmade moccasins, but what I love most about her line now is her suede accessories, made of scrap leather left over from the mocs. If there is a creative [...]

Gift it: Glass straws

I love straws, but I hate throwing them away. Last month at the Heath sale I bought two of these (The Bends, no relation to Radiohead), and I never would have considered GLASS for my permanent straws, but Glass Dharma has a lifetime guarantee against breakage. Amazing! The straight ones start at $7.50, and the [...]
