Snow Day!

I woke up this morning and there was a particular silence. A silence that only happens when it snows. I grew up in the mountains above where I live now and previously lived in the sierra, so I was familiar with the sound or lack there of. Only in the desert it’s at a whole other. It’s so quiet that it’s almost deafening. Anyway, I jumped out of bed and peaked out the window to confirm, then threw some clothes on and went out.

It’s a very rare occasion that we get snow at this elevation and if you’ve never seen snow in the desert, it’s magical. I personally think snow is quite wonderful but when it snows here it’s something else. As I started walking, it began to fall, heavily and I only became more excited. I smiled like I haven’t in a while, cried even and did a few grand jetés. It was glorious!

Unfortunately it melted soon aftertastes stopped, but I’m holding tightly to the special moment in time.

We’ve Landed

Or I have, or the website has. Whatever, the migration process seems to be done. Hours spent on the phone, massive frustration and annoyance, but hopefully it’ll keep things sorted.

Whilst on hold this last time and verifying my site still didn’t look like that of a viagra dealer, I came across my old tumblr account. I think I’d forgotten that it was still sitting out in the ether. I’m glad it is though. I love imagery, in case you haven’t noticed and it was always fun piecing together little pieces of inspiration that somehow all seem to work together. It’s like taking a peak inside a corner of a persons brain. My brain in this case. I’d really like to live in this corner, full time.

Here’s some snippets…

Migration

Just as any bird does. Or in this case, my site is being migrated to a new server. So I’m not entirely sure what that is going to look like, but things might be funky for a few days or so. At least it won’t look like I’m selling erectile disfunction drugs when you do a Google search. Well that’s the hope anyways. Hackers are lame and costly, but this is the year of taking back the things I love that I’ve let go of, so f*ck it.

First of the Year

I sent off my first custom piece of the year today, along with a few other odds and ends.

My lovely friend/ mighty collector of my work requested something in onyx and I obliged. I mixed a little Lore with what’s kinda becoming my signature double band and smacked a simple piece of round onyx in the center. I’m thinking I may have to make something like it for myself and / or the shop.
