I flew to Antarctica this past December. Hard to believe, hard to explain, but I tried my best on AdventureSmith’s blog. Read my review of my air cruise: Expert Review: Antarctic Express Fly the Drake.

IMG_2368I was honored to be a crafty part of my good friends Brittney and Adam’s wedding: from carving their save-the-date design, then block printing their thank-you cards at B’s bachelorette weekend, to designing and installing their Camp Notes message board at the big event. A few pictures from the process, which started way back in February!

I love the impulsiveness of these adventurers, so I took a portrait I drew of them from the beach volleyball court and Photoshopped it on some of their road-trip photos. These are the results:

I recently traveled to Peru for a work trip with AdventureSmith Explorations and only had time for two small sketches. For photos from the journey, view my Instagram feeds: the personal/llama-filled @lis_k and the professional @adventure_smith, which features a fuller look at my wanderings in the Lares and Salkantay regions, Sacred Valley, Cusco and Machu Picchu. Huayna Picchu is sketched above while I waited in line for the gates to open; below is a view of Humantay Glacier, an acclimatization hike I took on the Salkantay trek. My full expert review is also now published on this trip – read my trip report.

A sampling of some things I made this winter: stamp for a yogi friend, custom-crocheted thumb cover for a friend with an injury, logo stamp for Clay & Pine Pottery, knitted corn-hole bags (in cheddar and Swiss colors) for ultimate frisbee team Wheel of Cheese & a majestic snow deer!
