I’m super excited to be finishing up my ARISE collection. Which is inspired by birds! Or as Portlandia would say “Put a bird on it!”. Ok, not quite, but I was very inspired by our feathered friends, and after losing our sweet Peaches kitty to an owl this past month I felt I needed to look at these great winged creatures with a little more reverence at their power and their importance in our food chain. To get an idea of just how powerful birds can be, here my friend and former NOLS instructor Steve Morrison took an amazing photo of a Mongolian hunter and his eagle. It was featured on National Geographic. Wowza it’s HUGE!
