So, for fun, learning, and enjoying life, here is some sketchbook stuff, embroidery and pictures of my life lately, some from the awesome Instagram, now that my phone is fixed. I've also been taking classes for sewing and everything between through the Atlanta Institute of Stitches and Crafts. Those girls rock. I love love the art of taking time out of the psycho internet realm (that I adore) to do something old school that involves a special craft. There is a lot to be said for stuff that takes a lot of time to finish. With the product and surface design world that I am in, things are always going with trends and needed fast. It's nice to slow down. Last Sunday was one of the best days ever, because we all sat in a sweet lit up loft space, embroidering my drawings and having a good conversation. Anyway, here are some random pictures and scans.
Pretty people from the fields.
Dmv, Having kids is haunting, pattern ideas.
Embroidery practice from Stitches and Crafts.
From my sketchbook while in Costa Rica. Flippin' love that country. Scott and I saw all this and more. I think I discovered my naivety again in Costa Rica, which was really nice.
This sparkling wine comes in a can with a sippy draw. Awesome.
These girls embroidered my drawings too. They were smart youngsters.
One of my biggest inspirations: Scott. No matter what happens to him he pops back up and keeps moving and making and doing. I love it so much.
This tower is part of our apartment complex Pretty neat. Shot from the rooftop.

Sam and Emily, fiddling at the embroidery get together. This loft space was sick.
