Ikea Hacker

I love this website. So many interesting ideas for re-purposing furniture. I particularly like this, since clearly it wouldn't have to be an ikea brand product. Such a sweet idea.

Summer Melt

I missed the warmth last summer, it was just so cold, and appears mother nature intended to make up for that this year. I love the sunshine, but the heat and humidity has been melting my brain. That and my summertime under-employed state has left me rather listless, which is not good for the creative soul.

I have been able to produce a lot of small knitted pieces, like the one above! It's a small knitted flower pin, it measures about 2" around. I'm really excited about them. One of my main shop philosophies is to make as little waste as possible and these pins make use of all the little bits of yarn I've never been able to throw away! Very exciting. What do you think?

I also forced myself up to campus for some printing, but my broken sewing machine has meant all I have are pieces. I feel lost without my machine! Happily, I will have it back on Sunday and maybe I can work myself out of this funk. We will see.

In the meantime, some prints to share....

And the remains of my birthday party from last month. I decided to make myself some fun little flag garland and then couldn't bring myself to take it down!

Hope you're staying cool...
