December Caption Contest Winner

This year I had the perfect Christmas. I was sick and slept through the entire day. I sometimes worry there’s something just basically wrong with me that I have such an aversive response to “the most wonderful time of the year.” But you guys make me feel so much better. How reassuring to be in such good company! I thought … Read More

December Caption Contest Finalists

Happy New Year, everyone! Before I introduce the finalists in December’s caption contest I’d like to ask for your help in making the January contest run (hopefully) smoothly: I have a crazy 2 months of trade shows looming, and I will not be in my studio the end of January/beginning of February. Will you please submit all captions by January … Read More

November Caption Contest Winner

I know it’s me. This time of year – when it’s dark at 3:00 PM for heaven’s sakes! – sucks all the joy out of me. Whose idea was it to schedule all these “fun” holidays in the middle of winter anyway? The long and the short of it is, however, that only one caption submission this month made me … Read More

September Caption Contest Winner

Clearly it’s time for an Ellen Mcdonald feature post. Soon. I promise. I “met” Ellen through the caption contest, and though I have yet to meet her face to face (we’re shooting for January) she has become a dear e-friend. On the most boring, depressing, confusing days I’ll get an email from Ellen and suddenly I’m choking on my coffee … Read More

I am so confused…

I’m a week ahead… or a week behind… not sure at this point which. Can you all please vote on the caption contest by midnight October 8th (instead of October 12th as I so erroneously suggested)? The suspense is killing me. Thanks!

September Caption Contest Finalists… *or* Who’s Been Reading My Diary?

Mom didn’t think I need bother to learn to cook. But the life of wealth and ease she imagined for me never quite materialized, and I made a mistake or two on the way to becoming the master chef I am today. My very first cooking project was a birthday cake for a college boyfriend. I borrowed a cookbook, chose … Read More

August Caption Contest Winner

Clearly I’m not the only victim of “innocent-sleeping-toddler-spying.” When you read Angela Mahr’s winning caption and look at Susie, you can almost see Susie trying not to snicker… Congratulations, Angela! Perfect caption!

August finalists

I don’t care what the calendar says, August is definitely the shortest month. And since it’s also my favorite month – not as hot as July, but hot enough to swim almost every day, which is more or less what I live for – September is sad. So thank you, caption submitters, for making me laugh! Please vote for your … Read More
