After taking a break from publishing new blog posts during part of May and all of June, I feel it’s time to shake off the rust and share what’s been going on with me.
Remember when I wrote about the laundry list of craft projects I had lined up for the spring and summer? Well, just like everything else in 2020, things haven’t gone exactly as I planned.
Summer's approaching, and with the social distancing measures we've have had to follow over the past two months, I know many of us are chomping at the bit to go exploring.
For the Record is a look back at the month that was: I share my current obsessions, future plans, and other snapshots from a well-lived life.
While I can’t predict how this pandemic experience will impact me in the long term, one of the bigger takeaways I’ll probably remember from staying at home will be recognizing the importance of sanctuary and creating a space you love filled with art that inspires.
Document in photos how I've been spending my time over the past 40 days while it's still fresh in my mind.

Thanks to platforms like Instagram, I've been exposed to and inspired by so many amazing, beautiful, creative artists and makers.
Ruminations about my place in history got me thinking about labels and how fastidious I've been about adhering to the labels others have used to define who I'm supposed to be.
If you're feeling overhwhelmed and getting stir crazy, here's a little reminder that spending some (socially distanced) time outdoors might be one of the best things you can do for yourself right now.
