Hey there world - Seeing the moon cast a shadow on a portion of us on Earth was exciting! We made a small batch of posters and pins to commemorate the historic occasion! We are also offering custom stamped shirts as well until our Eclipse mojo runs out!

******Hooray for the solar system! ****

We've had a small run on these - so we are setting up an official order system over at our etsy shop - if you're local we can work out the shipping costs when you pick them up.

Science and Nature working together!

yours truly

Though we all might interpret the world a little (or a lot) differently - it's good to remember that so many things that we SEE are the same and flow through us in the same ways. As I looked around for inspiration, I found a version of this pattern represented in many different cultures in many different ways. To me it is a visual testament that as we separate ourselves through our various means - at the heart of it we share so much more than we know. #cantorial v34

This is a replica of the Roulstone Press commissioned by my late uncle for the Tennessee State Museum // it was the first printing press west of the Appalachian mountains and was to print the first newspaper in the then southwest frontier territory in 1791: The Knoxville Gazette. After Roulstone's death in 1804 his widow Elizabeth took over and became states first woman newspaper publisher. Go see it and the other fabulous history at the museum. Thanks to those who make it possible for the present to make the future.

A heart felt thanks to the ladies in my life! You make me better and I'm there when you need me! ****There is real power in coming together for positive purposes and I think it was felt yesterday all over the world. We are all in this together. I know there are folks who worry that they are going to lose what they value in change...but I don't think life is a zero sum game. The table just keeps expanding as more seats are put at it and the conversation only grows richer. #excelsior #investinkindness

***************Holidaze alert! **********************. Here's a little game we made in our recent workshop at the Penland Craft Center. The goal of the game : to have a useful conversation about a difficult subject with someone close to you. It's part of the new experimental wing of the shop called the Communication Station -- With which -- we hope to help elevate the conversation around us. Hats off to the crew of folks in our class who help conceive this idea and produced them in less than 24 hrs! More coming soon / send us your ideas and thoughts on how we can continue to help! #thecommunicationstation #thanksgiving collaborators Shelby, Eléanore, Amanada, and Maria!

Hope you plan to make available thru Etsy or elsewhere your Say Howdy Without the Hands poster to your fans outside the Nashville area. I live in Fredericksburg VA. Thanks so much for such great art! I learned about your organization through Judy’s Chickens and learned about her through Mason Dixon Knitting.
Hey guys! What material/media type are the paint can labels made of?
