today seems to be the last day to become a vendor at homegrown... check it out!

on our last trip to new hampshire we got an intimate look at maxfeild parrish. we learned more about him, his secret (or not so secret) love affair with his model, the reconstruction on the du pont mural... it was amazing. if you ever happen to be in the area you got to check out this little power house of a museum – cornish colony museum.

yey! happy woodgrain paper at papermojo...

wow! i got to meet kate lacey the other day! this amazing freelance photographer is so great a what she does – what an total inspiration! her portfolio is crazy awesome and includes her work for readymade and craft magazine along with shots of renegade craft fair for the ny times!

persepolis was AMAZING...

i just received my first batch of freelance illustration paraphernalia! i can't wait to send them off to some people and see if i can get some published work! i used the oh-so-wonderful for my beautiful post– and business cards.

"he had memories of trees that no one had ever seen before." i was recently thinking of that story about the buck that was really vain about his antlers which eventually got him into trouble. i was doing some doodles and this was one turned into my IF submission... i'm trying to blend the detailed lines with very graphic silhouettes with out seeming too disjointed...

so, i've been dreaming of the three goals i have for this life...

1.) start my own business that allows me to be creative with my hands everyday.
(i've actually made this one come true – which is giving me hope for the following)

2.) have an illustration published in the New Yorker.
(wish me luck on this one!)

3.) create and produce a line of textile designs.
(i have no idea about how to make this one come true – but i'm determined to find out!)

lara cameron of kirin & co. is a total inspiration to that last goal of mine.
