Thank you for your email. Please understand if it takes a few to get back to you. 



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.


Back on the Horse


1. Well I'm happy to report that I've finally got around to plucking my eyebrows (Dire. Need.). When you have such lush fields of brow to work with it is a feat indeed, and one that can go terribly wrong when the tweezers managed to scurry off into an unlabeled box that may or may not have contained the following: one shoe (not "one pair" but one shoe), a chartreuse planter pot wrapped in a "drink a coke" t-shirt, and a motley crew of beanies. Got to love those final mish-mash boxes.

2. I got a bit nutty with spray paint this week; it's my official drug of choice. I get a crazed look in the eyes, matched by the creepy respirator breathing, and EVERYTHING in sight is in danger of a new paint color. Obsessive compulsive is one way to describe it. The squirrel is next.

3. I'm baking scratch lemon-lime bars this afternoon. Drop on by, I'll serve one up on a wee limey plate, dusted with sugar and a tall glass of sparkling water. You really should taste one.

4. I officially love you all. And I'm really sorry for little miss camera's be-bopping during this high quality filming. She's just terribly excited to be back in use after such a hiatus, so please forgive her groovin' and shakin' (or just join in).


The lemon-lime bars are DELICIOUS. I'll be posting the recipe, as it is my very own version, right here in just a bit (as in, tomorrow).
