Inklings & Imprints Currently Closed

We've actually been closed unofficially for a while. First it was health issues within the family and then it just never seemed a good time to ramp back up. Re-opening will require some changes to how we sell and process items, so we don't have an estimate on when that will be. But we will announce it here!
Apologies for radio silence and any inconvenience.
Take care and happy crafting!

Tesseract Medallion Rubber Stamps Now Available

New Tesseract Knots Celtic Medallions Rubber Stamps

They look great! (If we say so ourselves...)

Finally got them up on our Etsy and eBay shops. More details about the specs are there.

We will also be making partial unmounted and cling mounted sets from this sheet available in the future.

Loden designed these with clay/metal clay pendants in mind. I made some jewelry in the lead up to FaerieCon using air dry clay and some of our other stamps, so Loden thought we should have some smaller stamps for the purpose. Unfortunately, the vulcanizer wasn't able to get us the sheets in time for the show, but we are looking forward to using them...

New Medallion Sheet

We had hoped to have this new rubber sheet of medallions with us at FaerieCon, but it didn't arrive in time. We have it now - and will post it on our shops ASAP.


Had every intention of blogging about the fact that we were going to be at FaerieCon this past weekend, but we decided to do the show on such short notice that the time got away from us.

We shared a booth with friend Rachel Anderson. Just the place for her!

Great experience - still processing (and recuperating from the travel). Will update more later...

Going down... Part 2

Picture 250

Middle part of hike down South Kaibab Trail in the Grand Canyon. Jan 17, 2011

(Click here for full Flickr set.)

Zig-zaggedy down

Very dry and sun exposed for most stretches. Was expecting Moses to wander out from behind a rock at any moment.

Picture 231

Lots of olive & acidic colors, plus the orange-red and some grey-greens, too.

Looking back

Different worlds in each direction, including up & down.

Plateau before the last stretch down

Final plateau before heading down into the innermost canyon. (Next set, to come)

Going down... Part 1

It's all right

(Click here to be brought to main Flickr set.)

Jan 17, 2011: Down the South Kaibab trail to Phantom Ranch at the base of the Grand Canyon. Both of us with our crampons (pull-on spikes for ice) - Galina's strapped onto her platform shoes.

Picture 049

First stretch of trail was sloppy, wet, snowy and icy, with green manure from the mule trains mixed in.

Picture 075

Picture 096

Temps went up as we went down - trail is very sun exposed, and it is simply warmer farther down the canyon.

Looks like a monolithic hearth

Colors, textures and shape of the rocks and formations change too, as you go down through layers.

Picture 126

Breaking photos from this hike out into a few sets, loosely grouped based on differences between a few levels of the canyon. The next set will pick up in an area where everything seems very olive yellow/green for a bit.

Sliding Rock State Park & Sunset at South Rim, Grand Canyon

I will get all these photos up online yet...

Picture 094

1/16/11: My friend and I drove up the Grand Canyon from Sedona. Just outside of Sedona we stopped at Slide Rock State Park off of 89A in Oak Creek Canyon. Click on image below to see slideshow on Flickr.

Picture 015

We stopped in Flagstaff to get some supplies for the hike and stay down in the canyon. Arrived at the South Rim in time to catch the sunset before we checked in at Bright Angel and prepped for the hike down South Kaibab in the morning. Click the photo below to see Flickr set on the sunset.

Devil's Kitchen Sinkhole, Sedona AZ

Devil's Kitchen Sinkhole

More pics from the January trip to Arizona - Devil's Kitchen Sinkhole in Sedona. All pics click through to photo set on Flickr.

Devil's Kitchen Sinkhole

May be hard to tell scale from pics - it's pretty large. Very tall tree growing down in there.

Article about the sinkhole.

Got a little dizzy walking around this thing... but couldn't resist looking over to see all that could be seen.

Aurora Borealis

The Aurora from Terje Sorgjerd on Vimeo.

(May need to click through to Vimeo to play)

When I was little, I thought that there must be tremendous sound to go along with the light show - because the light must be sparks from friction. Probably all the more eery that it is silent. One of the things I'd like to witness some day.

Arizona Dreaming - Grand Canyon


Wait - why is it don't I live there, again?
