I haven’t been into the studio in too long. I was going to head in Monday and Tuesday but I was so burned out on not having spent any time at home for so long and then it was rainy and so I just swung by the studio and picked up some paints and canvas [...]
Happy labour day! What are you doing inside staring at the Internet? Go enjoy the last gasp of summer!
Guys, I have no patience. NO PATIENCE. Welcome to the name change. Hope you had time to say your goodbyes to Shoot from the Hip because I put it down overnight.
Welcome to the new name. I found it in one of these two books (well, I didn’t learn it from them, but I added [...]
Make space in the stable for another! Sean pimped out my Surly frame for me for my birthday and it is more beautiful than I imagined it would be – with a Brooks seat and cork bar tape and shorty drop bars and my dream shifters!

I am fully aware of the work that goes into owning stoves like [...]
Well hi! We just got back from eight days of riding around the Bruce Peninsula and Manitoulin Island and I am in love with Huron all over again.
