Designer, maker and denim enthusiast
based in the middle of the map.

Here I share various visual exercises,
new works, scrapshots of places and things; evidences of life and living
in St. Louis, U.S.A.

A complicated, romantic thing involving
paper scraps, stringed instruments
and phases of the moon

We work in the dark. 
We do what we can.
We give what we have.
Our doubt is our passion.
Our passion is our task.
The rest is the madness of art.


Henry James

Baby Shower No. O2

Well, just as I was gettin pretty alright at being showered, I ran out of em! I think maybe four baby showers is somekind of an unspoken max, though..? The photos above are from the shower a few of my best galfriends hosted (Western themed of course). If you're ever in need of a stylist in the St. Louis area, my great friend Katie—who was kind enough to host us in her amazing, historic home—is a great one. I of course only took a few detail photos before everyone started arriving and really wish I would've gotten some shots of all my galfriends in one spot (doh), but theres really too much going on to worry about taking photos at these things anyway. They were all so much fun. I feel so lucky to have such great, creative, and generous friends and family. Not to mention a pretty good handful that share my sense of humor and style—this baby is already set with plenty of denim, great music and at least one hysterical hand puppet. 

We are loaded with all kindsa cute over here, you guys, I can hardly handle it.
And we're more than anxious to see our babe's face for the first time. Five more weeks...
