I know I normally post about work I have done, but it is time to give a guest post to my dad! As the title of this entry states, he is a mixture between Ron Swanson and Pinterest. I think he can make just about anything out of wood. He has even made his own tools to make anything out of wood.
His latest project was something I got to benefit from and I couldn’t be any happier! He turned an old chest that was use to hold tools, into the most amazing cedar lined table with blanket storage. I love it! I didn’t have a coffee table for my living room and this is just absolutely perfect for my space.
Check out all the pictures below; click on the images to view them larger. Piper decided to get in a few too! He loves it just as much as I do and appreciates the smell of cedar.
A friend posted this link on Facebook and I couldn’t help but smile as I read through the list. I think it is excellent advice and is full of valid tips that are sometimes overlooked. Now that I am 24, I am starting to figure some of these things out…but am still learning a lot too!
Last weekend while I was visited home, I checked out the sunflower field at Buttonwood’s Farm in Griswold, CT. Myself (and my mom) could not get over just how beautiful this natural display is! It is definitely a hidden gem of the quiet corner.
I made a few panoramas- created them using Photoshop and a somewhat steady hand- and took plenty of other pictures as well.

So this was my first year at the Newport Folk Festival and all I can say is next year I will be back. I went Sunday (the last day) and got to see a few of my favorites: Lord Huron, The Lumineers, and Beck. I also saw some new musicians I had yet to discover and some everyday people just jamming out on their instruments. Not only were the bands amazing, but the people were too. I have never seen so many people who appreciate life and just love music.
Overall it was an amazing first experience. Ford Adams is an awesome spot to have a concert and when the sun went down during Beck’s set, it couldn’t have gotten any better than that. So here are some pictures and some videos; I am just so glad I finally got to experience this. Next year I might have to go for all three days.
I wanted to wait until May to post Pantone’s Color of the Year, Emerald.
This is May’s birthstone and since I am a May baby, I was so happy when this was announced color of the year!
A Facebook friend recently shared this link and I felt compelled to share it. A loving husband photographed his wife’s painful struggle with breast cancer. The images show the challenges of cancer, the joy that can be found while dealing with the illness, and ultimately the end: “I loved it all.”
This website really touched me and I love the amazing, yet extremely sad photography. The emotions caught in each image express the fight of cancer that not everyone experiences. It is a different view on cancer and these are some of the most genuine photographs I have ever seen.
I have added a new addition to my portfolio which features a clay piece I created during my last semester at Eastern.
Check it out here!
In my opinion, sea glass is the best thing to come out of the ocean. I have a rather large collection and head down to the beach at least once a week to find more.
My mother is the one who first introduced me to this treasure, so for her birthday I decided to make her a sea glass necklace. I simply used wire and pliers to create this piece. She loved it and now I want to make more!
Well..thanks to this crazy weather, I hopefully will get this website going. The portfolio portion is coming along. I have posted all of my Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop projects. I have started publishing my photography images. Next is to add some facts about me and some of my writing samples!
Stay tuned, there is much more to come. And while you’re waiting here are some pics of Nemo. I can no longer see down my road!
