After months of ruminating, my Etsy store has finally opened! I only have four holiday greeting cards at the moment but I plan to have many more prints, ceramics, and photography in 2012. Here’s my first attempt at designing greeting cards!

This Texan is walking like a penguin in this foreign substance called snow. Sure does look pretty though.

Frozen Canals

Posted: January 11th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: photography | Tags: , , , , , , , | 4 Comments »

Was this photograph taken decades ago in a pre-global warming era where people in Amsterdam could glide around the canals all winter long? Actually it was taken two days ago on Keizersgracht by William Bosveld.  Amsterdam’s canals have frozen over for the first time in over a decade! Boats are banned from the frozen areas so people can enjoy the natural ice skating rinks. How nice!

I <3 Snow

It has been snowing everyday for almost a week in Amsterdam! I’m still a stupid Texan sliding around in my cowboy boots and falling over on my bike but I love it. I’ll take snow over rain any day.
