Happy B-day to me

ZOMG Lemon Mousse Pie, tester recipe for Isa and Terry.  Seriously, this is the best pie I have ever had.

Hello!  Life is kinda crazy lately, preparing for so many things that are coming up in May and June.  Renegade Austin, in May, and Renegade Brooklyn, in June are heavy on my prep list, so I have been printing, creating, brainstorming, and planning for both of them.  I'm super-psyched to be road-tripping down to Austin, TX from NY with my sweet Mom and two sisters.   It will also be a family reunion of sorts, staying at my two uncle's homes and meeting up with other family members and a cousin I've never met before.  We are going to drive it in two days, staying overnight in Nashville, TN the first night, and we will be gone for about two weeks total.  I've never been to Texas before, so yeah, I'm pretty excited!

I turn 31 today, which has turned into a non-event really.  It's kinda a shame that birthdays turn into no  big deal as a grown up, but I'll prolly bake myself a pie later for some sort of hurrah.  Nik took me out to Blossom last saturday for some amazing early birthday food and wine. He's the best, really!

I mentioned my pattern-making marathon I had going on last week in my last post, and I thought I would show a few of them that I had finished.  I don't really show this side of my work that often, because it is so different, and really isn't my favorite part of what I do. But, nonetheless! I hope a company buys them and turns them into pajamas or something.   This is basically what I used to do at my old day job (which it has been almost a YEAR since I quit! crazy-pants!), and I still do on a freelance basis for design studios.   I could prolly make these in my sleep, hehe.


  1. Happy Birthday! You should definitely make yourself a pie for later especially if it'll be as awesome looking as the lemon mousse pie in this post, yum!

  2. Happy birthday to you, or as we say in Sweden: Grattis på födelsedagen!

    Sometimes I like how my birthdays are non-events (I'm only 21 but have never been a big celebrator), last year I spent it at a guesthouse by a lake in Turkey, eating food from a can and just hanging out, and that was just perfect.

    Going to Texas sounds like so much fun, I'd love to go someday too. And hey, that pie looks amazing.

  3. Happy Birthday!

  4. To my bestest, most creative friend — Happy Birthday!! Who needs a non-event birthday when you're totally living the dream! ;) Your work looks awesome. Miss you tons.
