I am UmberDove.

And by that, I mean an artist.  One who hears stories in the wind, who paints because it is what her soul tells her to do, who smiths because the muse moves through her fingertips, who loves nothing more than the promise of an unexplored trail, the sound of the ocean in her ears, and scent of a serious cup of coffee.


Idaho or Bust


Today:  Laundry, packing, last minute trips to the studio, second cup of maté, lunch outside, a short run, early to bed (which is what I say now, but we all know I'll see the clock strike midnight).
Tomorrow:  6 am breakfast with BC, a morning flight to Boise, second cup of coffee and a three hour drive up into the Rockies to visit for the week with one of my very favorite birds.

That's right folks, Idaho or Bust.

I'm charging the camera battery right now.

In other news, the Illustrious Mme. Bookling has put a self-care challenge to all the ladies who, ehem, may or may not always take the best care of themselves.  The challenge is, for one week, to mindfully indulge in some sort of self-care every day.  Today, for me, that meant blowing off the omni-present to-do list for an hour and making something just for me.  Not for my upcoming shows, not for wholesale orders, not for the Etsy shop, but just for me.  And let me tell you, it was DAMN satisfying.  I really need to do it more often.

Because every gal needs a new shirt for the air/road tripping.  I've seen so many fabulous embellished tees lately, and really wanted to try my hand at something with ruffles and folds.  Whaa La!  Airport security won't know what hit 'em!
