Just got back from Portland last night after a great experience this weekend. Both Brad from Capricorn Bicycles and I displayed work together at a holiday show. I spotted a number of my Camper Satchels from last year. Thanks PDX! You all are great! www.portlandbazaar.com
Thank you Abi for being beautiful in the rose garden!
I recently biked out to a peak near Eugene with my sketchbook. After climbing to the top I took some time to sit with my sketchbook, eat a bit of almond cake and draw out some ideas.
Last week I celebrated my 30th birthday with Brad at Smith Rock State Park in the high desert of Oregon. It was quite lovely.
Yesterday Brad and I made a quick little road trip up to Portland for the opening of a new shop called Beam & Anchor. I have a few backpacks and some lunch sacks on display. The trip began with a detour through the Hoyt Arboretum to see some trees. The trails took us through a [...]

Last weekend I went up to Portland for the first time since our move to be a part of a really amazing event. The Portland Bazaar was a curated show, organized by the lovely and talented Grace Bonney of Design Sponge, Matt Pierce from Wood and Faulk, and Greg Hennes from Antler and Co. It [...]

On Saturday we went to Cottage Grove, OR and rode the Row River trail. It was dreamy.
It was an early morning for me. Woken up by a hungry cat, I had already had my coffee by 5:45am. I decided to ride my bicycle to the river and climb Skinner Butte. At the top I overlooked all of Eugene on a rainy morning but for a sliver of time the sun peeked [...]

This last weekend Brad and I filled up a large conversion van and headed down to Madison, Wisconsin for a bicycle show called Heartland Velo. It was indeed a success! It was a pleasure to meet so many dedicated makers and enthusiasts alike.
