She Sure is Scrappy

Where do you do your best thinking and sketching? Place? Medium?
I’m often inspired by things I can’t quite put my finger on. I make shorthand notes to myself on post-its and little worn scraps of paper. The other night a friend was digging in my purse for a chapstick and asked, “Do you keep a Guinea pig in here too?” There’s that kind of paper in my purse, tons of it. I clean it out every once in a while to catalog and regroup.
It was worse in college – in college I kept scraps in the back pocket of every pair of jeans I owned. Sometimes they’d make it out before the laundry happened, but the ones that didn’t went the way of detergent-drowned paper pulp. Now I’m a grown up that never happens because I carry a purse, a hamster-ready purse.
Listening to right this second: ‘Music Box’ – Regina Spektor

#summerchores This one goes out to @jenmorello 😘 
#onlyinnyc Reuniting my husband with this one million year-old pup was a highlight on our banner blink-and-you'll miss it trip home. Brooklyn, we'll miss you forever. Thanks @kymberella281 & @peckelmann you made this guy's weekend. Today has been crap, but now it is beautiful. #gofigure Kisses! 
Nature My husband is the dreamiest. I'm pretty limited in what I can eat these days. We've sidelined dairy, gluten and legumes to help with my auto-immune diseases. There was something particularly tempting while we were in Park City this weekend. It boasted its delicious lime salt loudly. Alas, it wasn't anything I could eat. I lamented and went GF/DF etcF, and then quickly forgot about it. As with most things that cause me fleeting disappointment, Matt remembered. Last night when I got home from the studio, I found this little bottle waiting for me on the counter. He made it himself. #limesalt #love #chefwifelife Dragon swimming in a bathtub. We adopted this dishy-fishy in Mexico during the #happilyeveralvarez wedding week of dreams. There are few worldly possessions that bring me as much joy.
