"I like that I stick out. I was watching “Valentine’s Day” on the plane recently. I have a tiny part in that movie. I was watching all the women — Jessica Biel, and Emma Roberts, and Jennifer Garner and Julia Roberts. They are gorgeous women, and I don’t want to take anything away from them, but they all do have a very classical look, with a very thin nose. I’m watching this parade of these faces and then, boom, it was my face, and I was taken aback. I was like, “Oh, my nose is so big!” I have never in my life thought I had a big nose, but, well, there it was.
The first time I was on TV, on “Flight of the Conchords,” someone put up a YouTube clip and said, “You’re too ugly to be on TV.” And I was like, “That is exactly why it’s a good thing that I’m on TV.” - Kristen Schaal, goddess

This thought came to me this morning so fiercely that I had to write it down. Later I decided to use a #photoshop tutorial I found on #Pinterest about  #typemasking. I used an old photo I snapped of a glorious #Camellia for the background. I’d call it a #pinterestwin! #beprepared #goodthingsarecoming #quote

I’ve been working on this piece, on and off, for a few months now. It’s been like a little mystery, slowly revealing itself to me. I pulled it out to add more layers today. I can’t wait to see how it turns out! #WIP #joyfulstudio #painting #pinkprint #layersandlayers #process #art #pinkpower #mystery #workinprogress

I love Portland more than any other place I’ve ever been (as much as my California friends and family don’t want to hear it! Haha!) But I was looking through the photos from my trip to CA, and I sure do miss my girls, my friends, and family there. Especially @beztdayever and @jessedanelle ❌⭕️ #californialove

I read this William Morris quote earlier this year, and I’ve really tried to live by it in many ways. The literal one, obviously, but also in the art that I make, and the vintage that I sell. Thanks to my #artwifeforlife, @adritheartist, for introducing me to the brilliance of #WilliamMorris!

The sad thing about visiting California (besides leaving) was how apparent the drought is. #californiadrought #lakeshasta #californialove
