It's the latter half of April, and here in Western New York there are snowflakes falling outside my studio window.  Again. It's cold and damp, and I'm finally back home from preschool pickups and dentist appointments.  My feet are cold, and my nose is sniffly, and I've...

I want to talk for a minute about motherhood. Specifically, motherhood as a maker.  As women trying to juggle motherhood and these creative outlets that enrich us, it's tricky.  And it's a unsteady marshland of self-doubt, right? As I go through this process of learnin...

Wednesday night 7 of us sat down at The Roycroft Inn and made some drop dead beautiful things, at the first #blubirdteaches Fiber Arts Workshop, our MUSEjar collaboration.  I'm still holding onto the little bubble of joy that I hope we all took away from that evening b...

Let's talk dryer balls. My meat and potatoes. My first foray into felt.  My firstborn fiber child, who pays the bills while the little ideas work up steam. 

When I set up at a market I get a lot of questions about dryer balls.  And sometimes, I have it togethe...

After a veritable fever's pitch of intensity, things are winding down here now that the Western New York Fiber Arts Festival has been here and gone.  All the pretties have been made, and the hustle is done.  All the crazy chaotic creative energy that begged to be funne...

I curated the elements for this piece with a mind towards combining the natural world that we live in (but oftentimes not truly part of it) and the world we construct around ourselves.  You'll find wild elements collected from the woods in my back yard, to dried dr...

I don't think this has really sunk in yet, but Blubird's been invited to participate as a guest artisan at the Kenmore Farmer's Market this Sunday, July 9th.  Not only does this represent a really great chance to show off (er....demonstrate what Blubird is all about),...
