I've been tagged. Read all about it:
What is your current obsession?
Macro photography. It started with getting a new fancy camera. But now I want a new fancy lense. Check out the detail in this picture. How can you not love it? I can't believe that life looks like this up close.
Another obsession is that I need to have my refridgerator organized by food group category. All produce is in resealable zip locks with a paper towel to absorb extra moisture, next shelf is leftovers and breads, and the top shelf is dairies. Cheese and meat have their own drawer as does fruits. I'll even try to stuff a huge cantelope in the fruit drawer just because that's where it belongs.
What are you wearing today?
What's for dinner?
What would you eat for your last meal?
if I was really hungry then I'd go for Canter's Reuban sandwich, fries, and a pickle.
What are you listening to right now?
What is your favorite ice-cream flavour?
What do you think of the person who tagged you?
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
blue (all shades although I lean towards green)
a blue and white striped fitted jacket with frog closures and slits at the wrists. I bought it at Anthropologie about 8 years ago.
If you had $100 now, what would you spend it on?
Describe your personal style?
What are you going to do after this?
What are your favourite movies?
What's your favourite fruit?
What inspires you?
other people's enthusiasm
What music do you like this week?
What is your dream job?
What is stopping you?
If you could change something in the world to make it a better place what would that be?
What do you have planned for tomorrow?
Acupunture on my aching wrist. I'm optimistic that this will help. I'll also post a couple pieces to my Etsy shop and start rebuilding my inventory for my next show. It looks like a good day is heading my way.
The rules :
1. Respond and rework; answer the question on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add one more question of your own.
2. Tag eight other people.
Hammer, Stitch, Burn
Inside the Artisan
Then I sent back some very rough sketches (not shown - I think I trashed them). From there they told me what they liked and didn't like about them. Which resulted in this:
And then resulted in these:
Congrats Wayland and Christy!

I flew across the country to New York to do the Renegade Craft show in Brooklyn. I had a really great time! My neighbor was the sweetest anyone could ask for - Kathy from Bossa Nova Baby. She has the most adorable patches of sewing machines and scissors.
Next to her was the Berkleys of Berkely Illustration. I FINALLY got my prints that I've been wanting to buy. So happy to meet Ryan and Lucy as well.
I spent a good 6 hours in the pouring rain wandering through the Brooklyn Botanical gardens. I saw only about 10 people while I was there. Did I mention it was raining? Evenings were spent with good friends eating Chinese take-out. What a whirlwind trip - but totally worth it.
Now I am back and trying to get going on preparations for the next 3 shows. My son is out of school after next week so I'm kicking it into high gear to try and get everything in order early.
Hope your weeks have been great and inspiring!
