Book Recommendation

Scott bought me this book for my birthday: Printing by Hand by Lena Corwin. It is awesome!

It explains several printing techniques step-by-step, with pictures, and lists of necessary materials. She gives an example of a project or two for every technique, too!

I am developing quite a little wishlist at Dick Blick.

I'm so inspired! Hopefully by next year I'll have my own little Etsy shop.

Thanks Scott : )

Etsy: Garbage of Eden

I really love Stephanie's little Etsy shop, Garbage of Eden. She upcycles materials into fun, funky jewelry like these plastic-bag-wrapped bangles. So cool!

Even better yet, she donates 10% of your purchase to a variety of nonprofit organizations.

Upcycled Plastic Bangles, $18.

it doesn't cost a thing to smile
you don't have to pay to laugh
you better thank God for that

there's hope

stand up for your right
keep shining your light
and show the world your smile

No, I did not make that blanket, but I want to learn how!

I decided I wanted to get back into crocheting – mainly because I picked out a color palette for my room, and I have no blankets. Sooo I want to make a blanket for myself with my new colors.

I was planning on basic stripes (that's all I know how to do), but then I came across these gorgeous wave/ripple patterns. I watched a few tutorial videos online, but they make it seem too complex for me (even though people say it's simple?).

Do you know how to do this? Can you show me?

A bit about Prop 8. I think this is really powerful.

2 Years

Scott and I celebrated 2 years together – he took me to a cute little winery about 45 minutes from my house. It was such a gorgeous day outside together!

Marielle sent a link to this cute little bag to me a while back. So simple. So lovely.

Scott got a job!

Scott recently accepted a position at Gore – he'll start next summer, after he graduates. He interned there this past summer and loved it. Yay!

The pic above is from the night we celebrated the good news : )


So, apparently I forgot to blog in October. Oopsies.

This week I'll recap the highlights : )
