Picnic, originally a craft blog, was born in the fall of 2008.  Over the years, the blog has evolved with me and has included recipes, design inspiration, entertaining tips and travel stories from our move abroad.  I rarely have time to write any more since I am busy running an arts and crafts camp for kids and have a lifestyle shop in my hometown of Berkeley, Ca with my dear friend Good On Paper.

Interests

Parties, polaroids, sunshine, snowflakes, mid-century design, simple sewing, ceramics, day-trips and year-long trips, flea markets, photography, films, and little children who steal cookies from the cookie jar when nobody is looking.
