lazy inspiration

Sometimes what looks like hedonism is actually research and development. For example,lazing around my yard admiring these poppies and solomon's seal blooming right now, I am inspired to sew some new zipper pouch designs or some really flamboyant hair flowers. The trick is to get to the studio while the pleasure lingers. Keeping a journal and a digital camera around is vital in capturing the moment and then being able to reference it when it is time to buckle down and produce.

the internet cannot compete with the smell of lilacs at dusk

I want to give a big "thank you" to all the lovely people who have been supporting me on saturdays at the farmers market. It has been going so well with my own little booth that all this computer world is being neglected. I haven't posted new photos for etsy or this blog in too long.

so here is a quick list of spring delights:
lilacs blooming all over town
warm enough to wear a skirt(without jeans under it)
Dr.Sketchy's figure drawing sessions at the Temple Bar
eating dinner on the back porch
the tiniest swollen beginnings of figs on our tree
sharing comics with my class at three rivers
(class favorites: american elf and craig thompson)

oh!and I got into the Urban Craft Uprising in Seattle this August.
