visuals for the visually minded folks

Pictures! Just a few snapshots! Not of my room yet though. That'll have to be for another time. :)

notebooks made using repurposed tea boxes (a gift to the house from a previous resident who lives in london) and repurposed brown kraft packaging paper

pretty notebooks made with pretty papers
both kinds of notebooks will hopefully be in my shop (whenever I get around to creating it)

a silk flower brooch i just made today. used silk scraps mom got from the sewing factory. had a friend help me singe the ends (i hate fire). and added a few beads. might whip up a few to add to shop (again, once i get around to creating one - haha)

pouch: jo-ann's fabric and disney twill tape

my favorite julia rothman mug from urban outfitters. lovely house drawings.

a sketch enclosed in a valentine's card i wrote for a friend

Shirley, just a note to say that your notebooks arrived today! And how beautiful they are too, what glorious paper you've used. I shall treasure them. Thank you so much for taking the time to make them and send them across the continent.
