summer days...

so the warm summer weather has hit, and i'm fully embracing wearing my hair up most days. i love the slightly high messy bun, and i'm loving bandana headbands. the one i'm wearing is one i made, its the smaller size of my scarves rolled up. this is defiantly going to be a summer staple.

more printing...

i printing more scarves in the studio today. i did a few more purple and then moved on to blues. i'm really loving all of the colours right now. the dyes came out more saturated than some of the other dye batches i've done before, and i'm using a new brand of pigment (what i print the pattern with), and i'm really liking it.

printing in the studio...

i've been pretty productive tonight printing in the studio. i had dyed these new colours a few weeks ago, and am now working on printing a whole bunch of scarves. i've got a pretty big show coming up in a few weeks, and i'm trying to load up on inventory.
i'm really loving these colours right now, coral always seems like such a summer colour.

lookbook pages...

i was just going thru a bunch of files on my computer from my digital classes this year, and came across a PDF lookbook assignment we did, and i thought i'd share a few pages with you.

ohh and check out this sweet post mandy did of me!

cottage time!!!

i'm going to the cottage tomorrow! its our first cottage weekend of the summer, and i'm sooo excited. i think about the cottage all year long, when it just won't stop snowing, when i miss my friends, when its cold outside, and then finally summertime comes around. this year the man friend and i are going up for 2 weekends a one week at his cottage, and then we have a bunch of other weekends planed at other family and friends cottages. and its gonna be awesome! this weekend we're off with some of our best friends, and i can't wait for lounging in the sun, hopefully swimming, and lots of yummy drink! i hope you all have a good weekend too!

knitted bugs...

so i realized that i hadn't really shown you ladies the installation i did of my knitted bugs at my grad show. the place we used for the show was being renovated, and i loved it. when we got there to set up i found this amazing hole in the wall. it was about a foot wide and ran up the whole wall, and it was the perfect place to put my bugs. i had about 30 of them to install, and had them crawling along the wall and into and up the crevice. we put a spot light at the top of the hole, but a lot of people didn't even see the bugs at first. it was great. they kinda walked by, and then all the sudden realized that there was a swarm of bugs on the wall. it was defiantly fun, and a really interesting way to install the piece, defiantly way different than the first way they were installed. and i'll probably do it all different next time!
