I’ve been wanting to move away from the poly fill jewelry boxes in an effort to reduce my plastic usage, so I’m pretty happy with my new packaging. Every part of it can either be recycled or composted.

Cross-country Road Trip

On June 9th Dan and I started on our second cross-country road trip together (and my seventh). Our first cross-country trip together was in 2010 when I moved from Seattle to New York. Now, two years later I am moving back to Seattle, and Dan rode out with me again.


This is the route that we took.


We saw a lot of amazing countryside, checked out some great antique stores, and took hundreds of pictures along the way. I took a lot of pictures of the industrial landscape, and was particularly in love with the industrial buildings in St. Louis, MO.


We rode the Duquesne Incline in Pittsburg.


We saw this amazing sunset in Utah. In this photo the sunset is reflected on the roof of the car.


And drove along the Columbia River George in Oregon.


We’ll arrive in Seattle tomorrow evening then I will be busy getting ready for the Renegade Craft Fair San Francisco.
