Hop’N Snap

Hop’N Snap is conceptual storytelling project for children that’s just beginning. Along with my SO, we’re writing short stories, drawing wacky characters, and envisioning ways to introduce our stories to kids – coloring books, web-based story books, mini-zines, and more.

Both of us love kid stuff – books, action figures, TV shows, even clothes (kids have THE BEST CHOICES in clothes, for real). Inevitably, we grew up, but not without a sincere admiration for the joys of childhood. As kids, we are encouraged to just be ourselves; we don’t worry about jobs, bills, and other boring adult things. Our idea is to tell entertaining, clever and thoughtful stories to kids and adults who love kid stuff like we do. We’re starting our project by writing down all of our crazy, unintelligible and nonsensical ideas. Then, it’s time to put together our first story.

What’s with the “hop” and “snap?” Silly, but you know how couple come up with the most ridiculous pet names? Meet us: Bunny and Lobster, hence “hop” and “snap.”

More to come on this… soon, I’ll introduce you to Pretz, the Pretzident of Hop’N Snap!

I see a lot of live music. Like a lot.

Along with my SO, we travel all over the country, following our favorite bands. We sing, we dance, we sway, we scream. We’re mesmerized by the lights, the sounds, the atmosphere. And we love every minute of it.

lstnte.com is our site to capture all of the perfect moments we live at each show. We believe music changes everything.

Beth Gals

So many of my friends have artistic talent and creative interests, but often we don’t have traditionally “creative” occupations. We search through our favorite social media apps to uncover interesting tidbits here and there. But what we’re missing is one place to collect, share, discuss and praise all of our discoveries, learnings and explorations.

Beth Gals is an idea for a community of gals who love to create, explore and inspire. Being a Beth Gal means that she loves to experiment in the kitchen, host friends for nights-in, create her decor, express their unique style through fashion, collect original artwork, visit galleries and museums, discover tucked-away hide-outs in her hometown, and stumble into unexpected and unforgettable moments. Beth Gals love to learn anything and everything, and they will love to share with and listen to other Beth Gals just like them.
