It’s always awesome to pick up a new store. I’m really excited to announce that you can now purchase The Heated’s dish towels at Collector Art Shop in Berkeley. If you have the chance, do drop by. They carry a ton of local artists and it’s just pretty.

New Year’s Day

Posted by on Jan 20, 2015 in BLOG | No Comments

Hitting the city on my bike is one of my favorite things to do on a holiday. A lack of traffic and the general quiet that comes on a holiday makes for ideal riding, in my opinion. On New Year’s Day, I made my way over to the Dogpatch and found that there is an abundance of my favorite kind of beauty, the abandoned, busted kind. If it ain’t ugly, it ain’t pretty.

New Stores

Posted by on Jan 13, 2015 in BLOG | No Comments

Let’s all give a big welcome to the latest stores who are now carrying The Heated’s dish towels in their fine establishments. Paulie’s Pickling in Bernal Heights, Faye’s Video in the Mission, Merch in the Lower Haight and The Mason Jar in Cow Hollow. Looking at this list, I love how varied these neighborhoods are. San Francisco is the best! You can always check my FIND A STORE page to find a store near you. I’m pretty good about keeping my site updated. Anyway, during the holiday season I managed to get a few shots of some of these stores.

What I love about the San Francisco Bazaar is that it’s a truly local show. When you go and spend money there, you’re supporting your own community. I’m really pleased to be doing this show and look forward to seeing you there.

Yeah, I’m stressing the hell out. I’m sick and I’ve been subbing as a secretary to try and make ends meet for the past few weeks so I’m behind on everything, in all the ways. I know it’s going to be fine but I just don’t have time to write more. Please note that this time, Renegade is taking place at Fort Mason.

Research Field Trip

Posted by on Oct 15, 2014 in BLOG | No Comments

I went to take pictures of houses for a new design I’ve been working on (which if you follow me on Instagram, you already know about). It was late-August when I went on this field trip and the main reason I finally made it out to another neighborhood was because I was sick to death of wandering around in my own neighborhood. I needed out, so on a whim, I set out to the West Portal station and wandered around from there. It was grey and foggy. It was perfect.

This was the house I ended up using as my model for the design.

house truck

I knew this house wasn’t the one I wanted to use but I had to take a picture because c’mon look at that color coordination.

house topiary

The topiary bushes out front were just what I was looking to add to my design.


The details on these houses are all a little different and I loved getting to take note of them.

That garage door, right?

Two Events This Week

I can’t believe that October is here already. It’s nuts! My last appearance at the Mission Community Market for 2014 is happening this Thursday, October 9th. The market continues year-round but I’m too much of a wimp to stand out in the cold all winter. Here are the details:

Mission Community Market
21st Street at Bartlett
San Francisco, CA 94110
4:00 pm – 8:00 pm – FREE TO ATTEND
The Heated will be there October 9th for the last appearance of the season.

I’ll also be at the Urban Air Market in the Lower Haight this Saturday, October 11th. For once, I’m sharing a booth with someone and we’ve been joking about how luxurious it will be to take a bathroom break. So, come on out and see how happy that makes me. I’ll be in booth 42E, halfway between Fillmore and Steiner on Haight Street.
