My newest class for Skillshare, Pen and Ink Calligraphy: The Art of the Envelope, is live and I’m really excited about it. Covers all the steps for envelope addressing, from inks and how to mix and match colors, choosing papers, technique and logistics, plus considerations for working with clients.
I love this! The New York Times posted the most popular Google recipe searches on Thanksgiving day by state.
I’m so happy to be joining up with Jen Huang and Poppies & Posies for this three-day workshop series in April. It will be a beautiful setting in Santa Barbara and a great opportunity for folks to settle in to learn and practice photography, event design and calligraphy.

Made me laugh. I Have No Ideas And I Hate Everything / I’m a Genius! Mug by Emily McDowell ($15 on Etsy).
I’m captivated by the real-life and distinctly Korean scenes in Paige Jiyoung Moon‘s paintings.
I was surprised and intrigued to see artist Cindy Sherman’s creation for Louis Vuitton’s Iconoclasts series, in celebration of the brand’s 160th anniversary. She created the Studio in a Trunk featuring drawers, a folding stool and adorned with vintage hotel labels — as well as a Camera Messenger bag.
Fitted with a luxurious vanity case, a Camera Messenger bag and a total of 31 drawers (to accommodate treasures large and small), the trunk’s interior dazzles with hues borrowed from the plumage of Mister Frida, the artist’s pet macaw. The Studio in a Trunk is produced in a limited edition of 25.
The new and powerful Phantom Flex4K camera used to shoot this footage at 1000 frames per second goes for anywhere between 100-160 thousand bucks. Wow.
China’s Chang’e 5 spacecraft took this remarkable photo last week of the moon and earth.

November is here and Paper Tastebuds is making a comeback! Slow and steady but I’ll be returning to the blog for more fun content this month after a couple months of being in a new-baby-bubble. I’m kicking it off with some kid stuff, which is sure to make an appearance more often now that its on my radar.
