Look what just popped into the shop! This is one of my favorite blockprints in my collection, not just because it was challenging to carve but also because I love bees! ______ #bee #beesofinstagram #naturelovers #handcarved #carved #linocut #blockprint #print #moleskine #writergifts #notebook #outdoorslovers #makersmovement
#tbt to carving Carrie Fisher's portrait as Princess Leia. ______ "Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident.

High five!! You might recognize who this handcarved blockprint is if you are a regular follower of my feed - my sweet cat, Otis. I hand colored the print for this notebook to make it even sweeter for the lucky person who finds this wrapped under the Christmas tree. There's only one notebook in the shop, so grab it while you can! _______ #handcarved #carved #linocut #blockprint #print #handcolored #otisthebrave #catsofinstagram #dailyfluff #weeklyfluff #meow #petsofinstagram #lazycat #highfive #makersmovement #etsy #christmasgifts #stockingstuffers #etsy
I love this time of year, when the leaves have fallen and the branches are bare. Where there are shadows in the Spring and Summer, light breaks through now and illuminates little worlds we might not have noticed before. I had this in mind when I carved the woods of the forest block, and I hope the design inspires those who, like me, love being out in nature, who adore sitting on logs listening to the birds and squirrels going about their business, who lose all sense of time when among the natural world. _____ Grab your woods notebook from the shop today! _____ #handcarved #carved #linocut #blockprint #print #woods #forest #naturelovers #outdoorslovers #adventure #etsy #makersmovement #creativelifehappylife #notebook #writergifts #stockingstuffers #christmasgifts
Oh, that zone of warm air around a campfire on a winter night is the best, am I right? I carved this for those of you who couldn't agree more!

Sometimes it just seems like a dream that we once had a President that spoke to our better selves, who carried the weight of the office with dignity. I carved this portrait of President Obama in the days leading up to the 2017 inauguration with the hope that the fears and concerns I had for the incoming President would not come true. I carved out of pure and uncertain hope. _____ 30% of proceeds from the sale of this notebook (excluding shipping fees) featuring a hand carved, hand printed portrait of President Obama will go to the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC. This museum is dedicated to documenting African American life, history, and culture, with the goal of promoting and highlighting the contributions of African Americans. The donation will be made in the honor of President Obama. _____ #obamaportraits #obama #barackobama #presidentobama #thanksobama #handcarved #carved #linocut #blockprint #print #portrait #creategood #hope #etsy

We happily live among possums here in the hollow. When the moons comes out, that's when they do their exploring.

There's something so "no-nonsense" about a bighorn sheep, right? These are animals that climb straight up cliff faces, no problem. What we consider obstacles they consider just going about normal business. You know someone that's like this, someone who gets things done and doesn't brag about their effort because it's just what the heck they do. This notebook is for that person. ______ #bighornsheep #ram #nononsense #handcarved #carved #linocut #blockprint #print #moleskine #notebook #makersmovement #writergifts #stockingstuffers #christmasgifts #naturelovers #outdoorslovers #etsy
