Suggested For You


  • In response to text versus online magazines; as a creative person who works with their hands, it’s like comparing apples and oranges. They are both great ,but different. Online is just not a substitute and it never will be. It has nothing to do with “catching on”. When I worked in fashion design, some people loved drafting the patterns and others loved sculpting the fabric on the dress form. As a right brain person, I like to blend both for the best result. To use one over the other is to limit ones’ view. Big picture thinking!

  • Loveliest mix. It rained here all weekend in the mountains, and it felt like sea mist two thousand miles from any ocean.

  • I adored this mix guys, on constant rotation of my 8tracks playlists. Can’t wait to see what you have for October!
