Get a


slip-ons as gift

I've been having really great dreams this week. In Wednesday nights dream I had decorated a pair of white canvas shoes and gave them to a friend. He adored them. I remember explaining them to other people in my dream, so when I woke up there was no way I was going to forget.
After creating them in photoshop, I realized that they look so similar to my friend Annie's knit patterns. They didn't at all in my dream, but one I started with the paint tool, they transformed into something else. The orange circles were big metallic copper beads and the black was all embroidered. I'm thinking the next step will have to be three-dimensional. I'll get right on that in October..

moderately schooled

I have been sewing like a mad person and having a good time! I've decided to spend the summer indoors and it's not because I have AC (cause I don't) but because I have been constructing shoes, making wedding dresses and have been taken on funny day projects. I've been pulling out the pencils and my envelopes stuffed with paper as to not loose that touch. I'm also writing for grants and have been showing art around town (this gets me outta the house).
Classes will start soon, and then I'll get a new car or new boots to beat the snow. For the first time ever I have found myself sticking my head in the freezer as if it was normal. This sticky heat is brutal. Bring me cold minus the holidays.

things that keep me going..
