Irons in the Fire
I know its been quiet around here, lately. I have to confess that I've been a little less creative at home with the family than usual, what with all of life's little to-do's getting in the way of my preferred mode of hanging out at home in our pj's, playing and making stuff. But I'm still at it. Mainly I've been working on a bunch of things for a new Etsy shop I'll be opening soon. I'll be selling baby and toddler accessories, and I'm having a lot of fun making every single thing that you'll find there. For instance. In the picture below you see Michael (in which we are snubbing our noses at child labor laws) modeling a pair of upcycled wool legwarmers. Here's a sneak peak at a couple of other things I'm working on. Once the shop is up and running, I'll be sure to let you know.
Also, I've been busy gathering materials and finishing making samples for a class I'll be teaching here in Brooklyn in a few weeks, on turning your child's drawing into embroidered art. You can check out my blog post about that here. If you're interested in signing up for the class, which will be held at Hootenanny Art House in South Slope, on Monday March 12th at 7 pm, shoot me an email, or check back soon for details on how to register.
Lastly, I've decided that its time to update the design of my blog to reflect the fact that I am in fact a creative person, capable at the very least of designing my own damn header. But Blogger and I aren't really getting along right now, and the idea of spending more time trying to write code to manipulate these pages in a way that satisfies me is most unsatisfying. So please excuse the lackluster appearance of things right now. Like everything else in my life, its a work in progress.
