New FTM Collections
The September FTM collection just dropped today and I'm also posting last month's illustrations to play catch up. :)
I can't help but laugh at how our time frame for living anywhere has gotten shorter and shorter. When 10 years ago the big dream for my life was to buy a nice large house and settle there for 30 years or so, now that that dream has changed drastically, along with our square footage. Even our last home in mid-town, which I was sure we would put down roots in, I felt in the first month that we moved in that I shouldn't get too attached.
I recently finished Jen Hatmaker's book, "7 - An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess" and just had to share something with you. If you aren't already familiar, the book talks about how she did a 7 month fast, exploring 7 different areas each month - clothes, shopping, waste, food, possessions, media, and stress.
Have you heard of Emma Magazine? It's like Martha Stewart Living, but young and fresh. They call it "A How-To Guide for the Modern Domestic." I got to contribute to their January issue with an illustrated recipe - check out the issue, they make it available for free online.
