fatwood department of everyday

It’s probably no surprise that we love to camp. Being immersed in the natural world is itch that needs to be scratched pretty often. When we camp we like to keep it simple, but it can be difficult to decide what is important and what to leave at home. But when it some to starting a fire, we don’t know what we would do without fatwood. It’s the perfect, no frills, easy-to-use, all-purpose fire starter. We use it at home, when we car camp or when we backpack. It goes everywhere with us.

Art Base Gala Live Printing

We had the extraordinary pleasure to attend the The Art Base Gala this past weekend in Basalt Colorado. We were invited to do some live interactive screen printing for everyone to create their own postcards. We couldn’t have been more excited about the opportunity. We met amazing people, and it was great to see such a great turnout for an amazing event that supports the Roaring Fork Valley’s community arts.

We had a blast creating a design that celebrated some of Basalt’s character and cultural icons.

National Plant a Flower Day

There is no shortage of national days. It seems that instead of hallmark holidays we now have social media holidays. Anything for a new hashtag. There are a handful of these we can get behind. None more than National Plant a Flower Day, #PlantaFlowerDay

It is kind of what we do after all. The big day isn’t until Saturday so you have some time to plan. Get to the store, buy a plant or seed and get them in the ground. Intention certainly counts so even just buying some seed bombs for planting in a few weeks is a good way to spend National Plant a Flower Day.

Those of you that already have seed bombs we would love to see where you plant them. Just tag us on social media and use the hashtag, #throwandgrow.
