Bridging the “Gap”

Checking my “On This Day” on my personal Facebook account has become somewhat of a habit. And by that I mean, when I’m laying in bed, unable to sleep, I look at the clock, see it is after midnight, and think, “oh, at least, I can check my ‘On This Day’ now.” I regularly haveContinue reading “Bridging the “Gap””

A wish of peace and warm toes this holiday season.

“Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.” I am really not quite sure how it has become that time of year again, but oh boy hasContinue reading “A wish of peace and warm toes this holiday season.”

SamSketches: A 2016 Calendar

For the third year running, there will be a SamSketches calendar. It is my hope for this third year that it will be gracing even more homes than its predecessors. The pieces selected, for the most part (not going to lie and say every single one), were done so with a special meaning behind each monthContinue reading “SamSketches: A 2016 Calendar”

From Quick Sketch to Gallery Wall

I am the owner of many, many scraps of paper: whether they be stuck into a sketchbook, on my dining room table, my purse, my back pack, my messenger bag, my other purse (yes, it has been mentioned to me I have quite a few bags), my closet, my night stand, my dresser, and finallyContinue reading “From Quick Sketch to Gallery Wall”

Holidays. Abraham Lincoln. Stubborness.

“Yesss signed and numbered! A retirement investment” That’s right. For anyone who did not understand why there was a little #/100 on the bottom of their card: it is there to pretty much seal up the deal that you have a limited edition card from me.  While I will not go as far as toContinue reading “Holidays. Abraham Lincoln. Stubborness.”

SamSketches: A 2015 Calendar

Now Available It was last year around this time, that I came up with a Christmas gift idea for my older sister, Sylvia.  After a fun filled evening (as usual) with her in which we joked about how horrible she is with remembering dates, I decided to create for her a personalized calendar to supply herContinue reading “SamSketches: A 2015 Calendar”

Tis the season to be jolly

Tis the season to be jolly Fa la la la la.  la la.  la.  la.   (I sang it in my head a few times, the la’s should be accurate) For the past few years, I have sent a SamSketches holiday card to family and friends.  I started this because I remember watching for theContinue reading “Tis the season to be jolly”

Court Square Flea Marketing

Last weekend, I took a stroll with a couple of friends into Long Island City.  The destination we were aiming for was located on Jackson Avenue, in the heart of the Court Square district and opposite MoMA PS1.  As we got closer and were right outside the gate to where we intended to be, aContinue reading “Court Square Flea Marketing”
