marching in spirit today and remembering how empowered and awake i felt after last year’s women’s march. 2018 is going to be another uphill battle, a long and painful fight, but it’s also a year when yet again we can use our vote to bring about change. here are some of the creative/ wonderful women i marched with last year.

i’ve taken then the earrings off my site for now, i had a lot of trouble finding the right materials down here and I think i’m going to make them a bit differently in the future. BUT, i’m selling some limited edition/ unique earrings over in my stories right now along with some mini prints and mini collages!!!! UPDATE: all the earrings have sold, but i still have prints and mini arts
link


it’s ridiculously hot today so i’m working from home with multiple fans pointed at me. but obviously i had to take a little dance break. (ps if you need a moment of respite from your mundane day to day look up ‘Fever Ray award acceptance’)
link


i'm heading back to sf for a few weeks for a visit pretty soon and it's got me missing my people so much more! they feel so close, but still damn far away! psssst, if you live in the bay area, some Creative Friends and i might be planning a little something hint hint 🤫 (also @alexsteele is having a sale right now, so if you covet those pants.........)
link


I made a few mini WIRED prints from that stamp i posted a few days ago!!! they measure about 10cm x 10cm. I’m gonna sell them for $15 each (+ shipping). dm to claim one!
link


these mini arts are starting to get really 80s all of a sudden....
link


looking back through photos and so loving this particular moment in time captured by @alexsteele from our trip to joshua tree over a year ago!! ps. i’m thinking about applying to @westcoastcraft this summer (despite living in australia now) should i do it????
link


i keep thinking about how finding models and a camera to use when I don’t know that many people in this city is probably going to pose a bit of a challenge... so maybe i can just convince babe @julia_ballenger to fly to melbourne real quick and model for me again????? (ps i’m aiming to have new pieces to show you by the end of the month woooooo!!)

draw, trace, carve. working on a stamp for a mini print (in front of a big ol fan cause it’s 105 degrees today)

my oldest friend Allyson and her family were in melb for a few days and it felt so nice to show people from my old home around me new home!!!! I’ve been feeling exceedingly lonely as of late, so they came at the perfect time! (this is one of my favorite pieces from the NGV triennial by Alexandra Kehayoglou) ps @aleeeese now it’s your turn to come touch it!
link


welcome to 2018 world!!! It’s day 2 of the new year over here and I’ve already had a few cries (which feels about right), and i also made lots of new mini arts to go out with the next batch of orders! happy new year?

i’m not usually overly sentimental about new years. honestly, i really hate the holiday, but 2017 has been a big one. I cried a lot, I learned so much about myself, i felt exceedingly lonely and overjoyed by the beautiful people i have in my life, i felt hopeless for our planet, i moved across the same planet simply to try something new, i marched among millions of humans to protest 45 and general inequality, i cried more about 45 and about the hate that was bubbling just beneath the surface, i called my representatives too many damn times, i made Maker & Mineral my full time job, i got more involved in effecting change within my community and politically, i met wonderful humans, this list could seriously go on forever... but all told 2017 has been both a blazing shit fire and the most beautifully eye opening at the same time. and i can’t help but be thankful for the year that is now over as well as the year that comes next. thank you all for your support this past year, for making this Maker & Mineral’s most successful year by far, and for being there in my personal times of need. Happy end of 2017, and welcome 2018!!!!
