for instagram

Every now and then I put a little effort into an Instagram shot. This isn’t perfect, but the thing I like about Instagram is its ‘homemade’ aspect, and I’m a homemade kind of girly.

one k comes as the other k goes

For the past few weeks the mere thought of writing in this book has made me anxious. There was so much going on and I had little inclination to write. I don’t understand why. So I’ll share some of the highlights of my days here.

girls explore } eve van vaterbearer on instagram

I decided that Eve has worked hard enough, frolicked long enough and has enough antics under her belt to merit her own Instagram account. And she deserves a last name. Here she is: Eve van Vaterbearer. Follow her on @stories_of_eves.

in duplicate and triplicate } they dance to andrew bird

Yesterday I posted a video to Instagram which I felt needed to be longer, because I am momentarily in love with Andrew Bird’s song Nervous Tic Motion of the Head to the Left. So I am posting the song here, along with a slideshow of more Duplicate and Triplicate drawings.

pinheads } playing with scissors and glue

I was sitting around last night enjoying my son K and his friend’s endless laughter at some low-tech video game, while my son Y entertained two of his friends.

let me introduce you to ‘the book of curtains’

So I finally started writing in my new journal from the wonderful Hope House Press. I noticed that my ink was being absorbed in a different way, seeping through to the other side. To me, that was a problem. But every problem that presents itself comes with at least one creative solution. So I decided that I’m going to roll […]

girls explore } thieving eves

I hadn’t realized how many Eves I’d shot and not posted here. As always, they’ve had weeks of antics, discoveries and the usual tomfoolery. My Eves chose this song for the post because they are a gaggle of drunken harlots tonight: The Cat Empire-The Wine Song

creating worlds } the scenes and what we see when we take a few steps back

This is a bit of a random post. Well, the post itself focuses on the creation of a space and what happens when you step back and see that space in context. It’s about the transformation of everyday objects into something new, a re-definition of what an object’s conventional job is. And then there’s a […]

the traveling tap four } current location } beirut, lebanon

So this is what happens when there are multiple custodians of the tapestry. I get a deluge of very similar posts. However. Each and every one is special because I know how much work goes into taking one of these shots. So I’d like to thank one mother, two aunties, and two cousins for taking […]

vinegar

As you know I get these surges of playfulness which grip me for a few hours and result in something that ultimately gets posted here. This time it was different, because my whimsy was a catalyst for something that would come after. It inspired my son, and consequently me, to play with some water and […]
