Hello Wonderful! An interview with the wonderful Lindsay from Tusk and Cardinal!


I always enjoy when Linsday from Tusk and Cardinal's embroidery work pops up in my Instagram homefeed and I thought it would be fun to get to know her a little better! If she could, she would sew, drink gallons of Earl Grey, and watch British television for days on end. Sigh. Who wouldn't? Enjoy getting to know Lindsay below and you'll see why she's so inspiring and wonderful! 


Who are you, what do you do and where in the world are you? 

My name is Lindsay and I live in a bitty apartment in downtown Sacramento, CA. I love it! I work for a retina practice by day, and by night I manage all things tusk + cardinal.

What do you believe in? My family, my God, myself. Though that last one is a constant work in progress.

When do you feel your most wonderful?

Naps. Naps make me feel the MOST wonderful. Also I experience a blind euphoria when eating ice cream or Thai food.


What is something wonderful that has happened that would have never have happened if you hadn't made a mistake or a wrong turn somewhere?  

As a directionally challenged individual, wrong turns are a consistent part of my life. Wrong turns have lead me to hidden fishing holes, tasty burger joints, and weird and funky boutiques. I try to embrace my constant confusion.

What is the earliest time in your life that you can remember experiencing wonder? When was the most recent time? 

 I LOVE film. I remember seeing movies like "ET" and "Nightmare Before Christmas" as a child and being delighted by the idea that something that looks scary could be wonderful. Most recently I visited Mendocino, CA and the beautiful combination of ocean and forest always blows me away.
