May is always one of my favorite months- mostly because of the weather, the flowers, the smells, the everything! 

This month I have a number of things lined up! This weekend, I will be at the DC Meet Market in Logan circle. If you came out last month during the ridiculous winds, the 3rd might be considered a good make-up day! Here’s a bit of trivia about myself- I hate wind. It’s my least favorite element. I think it’s the unpredictability of it. At least with rain, there’s usually a clue and some minutes before it hits you! Anyway…. Meet Market is a lovely little market organized in part by the fabulous Virginia Arrisueno of Denada Designs. If you don’t know her work or everything she’s up to…well then, I don’t know what to tell you….

Saturday May 10, I will be at my full time job at Art Enables for our annual spring show where you can pick up some truly incredible one-of-a-kind birdhouses AND we will be opening Wild Ocean in the Off-Rhode Gallery.




Sunday May 11 I will be in my usual spot at Eastern Market, as long as it isn’t raining terribly! 

Saturday May 17,  I will be leading a tour at noon for the Mid-City Artists. We will be touring the studios  of Gary Fisher, Glenn Frye, Betto Ortiz and Robert Wiener.

Sunday May 18, I will be in Baltimore and collaborating with the fabulous Mary England on something we’re calling the Happiness Experience. I’ve been thinking a lot about the connection between art and happiness and we’re going to have balloon artists, a compliment booth, laughing yoga and more! 

Hope you can make it out to one of these events!

Viva la May!





Do you like to …

Do you like to make things that require a separated egg? Yeah, I don’t make much either. But maybe now I will after watching this ingenious method of removing the yolk (undamaged) from the uh….other part…. 

Don’t worry if you can’t speak Japanese- it’s easy to understand what’s going on. And for the future when the video is likely removed- Take an empty, squeezable waterbottle, hold it above the cracked egg (now that I type this, it might be useful to actually crack the egg on a wide, shallow bowl for easier access to the yolk), squeeze out the air in the bottle, lower the mouth of the bottle towards the egg, ease up on the grip of the bottle so air rushes back in and takes the yolk with it.
