About Lynn & Blue pine sea
I am a Pacific Northwest dreamer, constantly creating things.
My inspiration comes from the mountain tops that surround me, the coffee in my mug, and the freckled loves of my life. I like the effects of words, and I love burritos.
All I do is in an effort to live an incandescently happy life, and I wish the same for everyone around me. If Blue Pine Sea can help with that, I'll keep making things.
I've been drawn to woodwork from a young age. My dad taught me the ropes (and continues to only give me tools as gifts) of working with wood.
When I started woodblock carving, it was born out of using what I could find as a kid. Which, at the time, consisted of scavenged wood scraps from my dad's projects.
I've grown to appreciate the persnickety nature of wood grains, the smell of wood, & the character that each piece brings to life.
Plus, standing on a mountain top looking over a sea of pine trees is incredible for the soul.
As a nonstop idea jotter, doodler, and list maker, notebooks have been a constant companion in my life. I tuck them into every bag or pocket where I can fit them. A notebook can catch a quick idea that would otherwise be gone with the wind. It can serve as a creative outlet, a place to tell secrets, and a way to keep organized.
A notebook's pages can contain some of the best and worst moments in life, and I rely on everything they provide. So I thought, why not make my own? I wanted to make companion notebooks, simply designed to spark creativity and small enough to bring along on my adventures.
I hope these notebooks bring the same things to the lives others too!
